I agree that the franchised Uno's locations aren't very good, but the 
original one downtown is really not the same IMO.

Actually, Pizano's is owned by Lou's brother, Rudy Malnati Jr., so they 
have similar pizzas. (Their father started it all by opening Pizzeria 
Uno, see: http://www.pizanoschicago.com/about.html) Personally, I prefer 
Lou's for deep-dish and Pizano's for thin, but both places are excellent.

Anyways, I only mentioned Pizano's because of the original request for a 
place near Grant Park. =)
