This one pound of food heaven is the heavyweight pizza slice champion of Illinois.

The Ultimate Lunch Meal Deal

I remember when I was a kid, there were "Mom and Pop" pizza places all over the place. The majority of them made a delicious pie. When it was time to order, the decision was usually difficult.



Unfortunately, those monster slice meal deals are few and far between these days. Luckily, there is a place just a short drive from Rockford that has the ultimate lunch special.

The Ultimate Pizza Slice

The restaurant to check out is Frato's Pizza in Schaumburg, Illinois. They are the home of the one-pound slice of pizza.

According to,

"Frato’s makes HUGE Fresh 1-Pound Slices for the same price as those other places!"



"Each slice averages 15-17 ounces and they are made in our traditional stone oven by our Chef-trained Culinary Students! Real Cooks, Real Food!"



"It’s only $4.99 for a 1-Pound Handmade Pizza Slice & Lemonade (or Bottled Water)! That’s a Daily Special!"



This has food road trip written all over it.
