Famous Chicago Pizzeria Coming to San Antonio

The writing is on the wall: Gino’s East, Chicago’s premier deep-dish pizza chain, is expanding into Texas.

The restaurant has announced that it will open four new Texas locations in a partnership with ATX Brands. The new Gino’s East restaurants will be located in Austin, Dallas, San Antonio and The Woodlands, just north of Houston.

The exact location of the San Antonio restaurant hasn’t yet been announced, but a spokesperson for ATX Brands said the pizzeria will open either at the end of this year or early next year.

All of Gino’s current locations are in Illinois and Wisconsin – within an hour and a half drive of the original location at 162 E. Superior St. in Chicago.

Gino’s East was founded in 1966 and has grown in both reputation and reach. They now operate ten locations (soon to be more) and claim the title of making “The Original” Chicago pizza.

Known for having the best pizza in tradition-rich Chicago and for their unique culture, Gino’s East has been featured on Man vs. Food, the Food Network and in countless other media.
