Everyone knows that Chicagoland is the undisputed deep dish king, but ground zero in the local deep dish debate might just be Morton Grove, home to both Pequod’s Pizza and Burt’s Place. Regardless of your preference, you’re sure to hear the pan-style crust is caramelized, not burnt.
But there’s so much more than great pizza here.
With —the median price as of May 2023 was $360K—Morton Grove offers charming suburban living with easy access to Chicago. Sandwiched between Skokie, Glenview and Niles, Morton Grove is near the city’s northwest side, O’Hare Airport and Interstates 94 and 294.
Morton Grove doesn’t have a traditional downtown but drive along Dempster, where many restaurants are located or Lincoln Avenue to find local institutions like Bringer Inn, a Chicago-style bar known for its burgers, thin-crust pizza and large outdoor patio.
