Readers' Choice 2012: Who's Got the Best Pizza in the Tri-Cities?

You nominated the Best Pizza Places. Now it's time to vote on the best pizza place in the Tri-Cities!

Everyone has a different take on what makes the best pizza—and we're passionate about the answer. Is it the sauce? The cheese? The toppings? The crust?

Is it deep dish or thin? Spicy or mild? Exotic or simply down-home delicious?

This is your chance to decide.

Patch wants to know where to find the BEST PIZZA in the Tri-Cities. And all you have to do now is vote to determine the winner of our coveted Readers' Choice Award.

Nominations were accepted on Geneva, Batavia and St. Charles Patch through July 9.

Only 58 people have completed this survey. 50 were probably Aurelio's employees.

Antonio's; hands-down the best pizza my boys and I have ever had. And we have tried quite a bit of pizza all over the place.

Rob Brundige July 29, 2012 at 01:13 AM
Oh, and it has to be "pie" cut, not this mid-western square cut.

Some great choices here , but I have to give the edge to Orlando's, our family has enjoyed it for over 30 years and continue to enjoy the Family night and salad bar.

Antonios Pizza Factory is the best!
edn August 15, 2012 at 11:30 PM
I find it so interesting that more people do not VOTE for their favorites in the Polls -they only leave a comment....Comments are wonderful and certainly informative & much appreciated BUT.... but they are NOT counted as a VOTE!!!!!!! It would most certainly appear that the best pizza place Poll is being bombed but employee votes! LOL!

Antonio's Pizza is the best pizza by the best people!
Bill Fass August 17, 2012 at 02:51 AM
From the south burbs myself. Aurelios is and has always been the best. Love the sauce. If you dont like it your probably a Cubs fan.

Antonios Pizza Factory good food great service
Sue Petersen September 20, 2012 at 01:23 PM
Been eating pizza in the area for 25 years......and Antonios was always at the top of that list with Charlie Fox's (Batavia) and then came along Aurelio's (from the South burbs where I grew up!) Yummmmm. Lou Malnati's is the most "authentic" deep dish pizza you'll ever find this far west......AND, you have to try the new "Chicago Pizza" in Batavia. It is fantastic! I understand they are going to open a eat-in soon. Opps, and I almost forgot Pal Joey's..... BEST place to go eat out for pizza.....atmosphere atmosphere atmosphere.....and great pizza too! :))
