A lifelong Petaluman, David Weinstock has been the owner of Dave’s Auto Repair on Bodega Avenue for almost 33 years.
In the early 1990’s David and Bill Berliner - the owner of Old Chicago Pizza in downtown Petaluma - came together as a team to take Old Chicago to the next level. The result was the establishment of a second branch of Old Chicago Pizza which would focus exclusively on takeout and delivery. Old Chicago Pizza Takeout and Delivery opened in 1994 on the east side of Petaluma and both restaurants continue going strong today.
What makes Old Chicago Pizza different than other pizzas? It starts with the deep dish crust. Bill, who was born and raised in Chicago, brought the recipe with him to the West Coast. The pizza dough is prepared on site and the secret mix of ingredients makes the thick chewy crust memorable and authentically Chicago. Top that crust with a robust red sauce, a thick layer of melted cheese, and a wide selection of toppings, including fresh vegetables prepped daily and you are officially in Old Chicago heaven.
Not one to stop at excellence, Old Chicago continues to find ways to wow the customer. The iceberg wedge with dressing and blue cheese crumbles is a recent and popular addition. Old Chicago is also becoming known for its oversized freshly baked chocolate chip and mocha chip cookies.
Lately, Old Chicago has begun taking those same cookies and filling them with close to an inch of French vanilla ice cream, creating the Old Chicago Ice Cream Sandwich. Old Chicago Pizza is consistently voted Petaluma’s best Pizza and once you try them, you’ll understand why.
