Garibaldi’s in Hoffman Estates restaurant review

Chicago Food King

I have always driven by this pizza location. I have been told by many friends that they have solid pizza and I need to check them out.

The name is Garibaldi's in Hoffman Estates.

There are two locations for Garibaldi‘s. The first is in Arlington Heights and the second is in Hoffman Estates. I chose to go to the Hoffman Estates location to do this review of their pizza.

The moment that you walk in it has a vibe like a 50s diner. The menu has so many items on it, such as Italian beef, burgers, hotdogs, and more. They are not only known just for pizza.

It was lunchtime when I arrived at the location. The lunch rush was pretty busy. Many of the people that were ordering seemed like regulars.

I asked to do a slice of sausage and pepperoni to try both to give a thorough review.

I waited about 10 minutes for my slices to be ready. I am not sure if they were made to order or if they were premade. I will say both the slices were huge.

I first tried the sausage slice. The crust was very crunchy. The dough did not have a lot of flavor, but I did like the texture. There was a ton of cheese which was good. The sauce also had a forgettable flavor. The sausage tasted like mediocre sausage. My best evaluation would be it tasted very much like Home Run pizza.

The pepperoni had better flavor, but was extremely greasy, which was to be expected. The cheese immediately sloughed off and became a pile of cheese mess.

The flavor of the pepperoni pizza, like I said, was better than the sausage. I do not think I would make an effort to order from here if I lived in the area. The pizza was just average at best.

I may come back to Garibaldi‘s and try their other items on their menu.

I rate Garibaldi‘s in Hoffman Estates a rating of 5 out of 10. I would say if you were in the area to go check them out.
