Food find: Bill's Pizza and Pub North

On this little road trip, we had so much food that I don't know where to begin. So I'll start at the beginning of our journey, now about 2,000 miles away. The morning that I began this trip to Tucson, my sisters and my mother and I met at Bill's Pizza and Pub North, located in Grayslake near the College of Lake County.

This place aims for an outdoor atmosphere by nesting its establishment in what's meant to look like a giant log cabin. Inside, you'll see all kinds of dead animal parts mounted on the walls and outdoorsy light fixtures that look like little viking ships. Also, every table gets a basket of salted peanuts that taste a bit like almonds. The discarded shells belong on the floor in this joint. Yet, it's still classy.

But we came for the pizza. Although I had a burger, my sister ordered the doubledecker pizza with just cheese. This is an original in my book because it has two thin-crust cheese pizzas (or any other type of pizza you want) layered on top of each other and anchored in place with a thick, braided crust.

The taste was nothing too special but the concept was pretty nifty. The sauce was a bit sweet for my taste, but I give it points for the fact that it was both homemade and originality. I'd eat it again.
And because I heart pizza, I've brought the movie back -- a Kelly Mahoney original about pizza joints in Evanston, Ill.

It took me a couple of visits to get past all the taxidermy at Bill's Pub. But now that that's behind me, I love it! Bill's is the perfect place for to gorge myself on double decker pizza and cheap beer with loud friends!
