Classic & Cozy: This Restaurant Serves The Definition Of ‘Rockford Pizza’
You won't find it in the dictionary, but if it "Rockford Pizza" was defined, you'd see this local restaurant as the origin for the word.
Chicagoans have Chicago pizza, New Yorkers the same, but in Rockford, we have our own thing too.
It's hard to describe but Lino's, 5611 East State Street, serves what can only be described and defined as "Rockford pizza."
Some say Capri or another local restaurant. Other complain that it's too hyped but Lino's serves the kind of pizza that former Rockford residents come back to eat more than any other place.
The question remains though, is it indeed Rockford's best pizza?
