Thank you Michael.  I'm glad we were able to provide that experience to you and the rest of the Roadfood gang.
 
My favorite moment of that entire tour was at the end of the lunch at Burt's when you looked up at me and said, "This stuff rates up there with New Haven."
 
I can think of no greater compliment coming from such an outspoken authority.

Buddy,
After the first taste, I looked at MH and Cliff.  My questioning look was, "how do you rate this?  compared to New Haven pizza?"  We all agreed.  Spectacular pizza!  Completely different from Pepe's but in another category of pizza.....the best of the best!!!

Oh, man.  At the very least he could make a nice little chunk of change selling off those very well seasoned cast iron pizza pans of his.  You can't replicate those pies without those pans.

The current Chicago Tribune story is excellent but the real gem is the article below that was published in 2011.  Burt was quite a legend.  48 years in the pizza business.  Wow.  I hope he enjoys his retirement.  God knows he's earned it.

I'll have a sausage with extra cheese and Roadhouse Hot, Sweet, and Tangy.


Sounds like a perfect combo to me!

It's pretty darned tasty.  Too bad it was never experienced by the public.

To my knowledge, the final night has come and gone.  I have thought about whether or not he'd come back for one final night, but that just doesn't seem like his style.  I'll keep everyone here posted on whether that gathering might come to pass.

I'm sorry I never made the effort to get there.  Though we still do enjoy his legacy every time we visit Chicago with a pizza from Pequod's.  We actually just had it on Saturday night.
