Chicago Fire, Folsom
Who doesn’t like pizza – bready, cheesy wonder that it is? So, when my book club recently planned our February meeting for the Folsom location of Chicago Fire, I couldn’t wait to tote my camera (in addition to my book) and check it out.
After a thirty-minute wait on a Friday night (they don’t take reservations) and a glass of wine (they have a nice selection of wines by the glass and a separate bar area), we were rewarded with a booth that offered some privacy from other diners. The dark wood and brick interior created a warm atmosphere for us to study the menu and determine our selections.
We were unanimous in wanting to order the thin-crust, Chicago-style pizza, and decided to share a large vegetarian version. After all, Chicago Fire calls itself “THE tribute to Chicago pizza,” and I couldn’t agree more. The pizza was delicious! And so were our salads, which were generously sized and fresh. What impressed me, too, was the tremendous value of the food, which did not break the bank. The salads start at $2.95, and the pizza was reasonably priced, too.
Great food and wine, great discussion and money still left in my wallet – that’s what I call a great night out. I will be heading back for more Chicago Fire.
