    I had long wanted to try Freddy's but it's a bit of a haul for me and I kept putting it off. I finally went a couple of times in the fall and it was great. I wanted to try their Italian Beef which was excellent, but while I was waiting to pay for my sandwich, the ladies started bringing out trays of their margherita pizzas; fresh out of the oven. I had to try a slice as well. I was blown away. It's a marriage of a typical Neapolitan margherita with a lot of fresh mozzarella, crush tomato sauce, fresh basil but what clinched it was the dough. The first time I had a slice it was charred on the bottom and every bite was crisp - not soggy and droopy at all. Like a great bread dough, not typical 00 flour from Italy. The second time the pizza was less done on the bottom but still excellent. I can see why this place is an institution in Cicero. They have so many things to try as well. I am sure many of you are quite familiar.
