Wer ein Verlangen nach authentischen Chicago Pizzas befriedigen will, der muss zu Little Star Pizza kommen. Dieser coole Laden serviert köstliche Speisen, die sogar die meist abgestumften Pizza Feinschmecker zufrieden stellen werden. Probieren Sie die Pizza Mediteran, mit Hühnerbrust, Artischoken, Paprika, Oliven, Zwiebeln, und Fetakäse. Oder Pizza mit dünner Kruste, die fast genaus super schmecken wie die dickkrustigen Pizzas, für die das Little Star Pizza so berühmt ist. Mit minimalistischer Ausstattung, und einer lauten Jukebox, ist dieser Platz bezaubernd. Ein anderes Lokal wurde deswegen auch im Mission District eröffnet.
Obwohl der sagenhafte und viel gelobte Likör, nach dem diese Bar benannt ist, hier NICHT serviert wird (schade, dass es so ist), werden doch viele ähnlich wertvolle Gebräue angeboten. Besondere Drinks wie der Perfect Pear (die perfekte Birne) und Ginger Rogers scheinen aus reinem Alkohol zu bestehen, und selbst eine standardmäßige Margarita versetzt einem einen unglaublichen Schlag. Man sollte gemischte Käse- oder Fleischsorten bestellen (durchschnittlich um die 15 USD/ 16,14 EUR pro Teller). Auf keinen Fall sollte man die gute Chocolate Pot-de-Creme (heiße Schokolade) verpassen.
