What did I think?

Overall, not too bad.  I've been here several times already, and so far I can see improvement.  Initially the deep dish pizza was soggy, but now, it's not soggy any more.  Probably because they added a elevating grill looking addition to the deep pans.  Part of the soggy pizza problem was the growing pains.  The wait hasn't been as long as when they first opened.  But this place is still very popular and as I drive by, I can see people waiting on the outside.  Costs?  I went there most recently with 4 people, no alcoholic beverages, the cost of the meals with tip and tax came out to a little under $70 dollars.  The service was speedy and friendly.  She brought us hot water, because I thought it was cold in the restaurant.  We had to wait 15 minutes to get seated, which wasn't bad that night.  We ordered pumpkin soup, rosemary chicken, and a regular (larger than the individual sized one) sized deep dish Chicago Style:  NUMERO UNO® A ‘works’ pizza with sausage, pepperoni, onions, peppers, mushrooms and our unique chunky tomato sauce. Topped with mozzarella and grated Romano.  To fill in the details, Tammy had the GRILLED ROSEMARY CHICKEN High in flavor. This chicken breast is  infused with the distinctive,  aromatic flavor of rosemary. If it  were a cocktail, it would have been  muddled. Served with two sides  and a breadstick. These descriptions were taken straight from the Uno menu itself.

Nutritional value?  Mainly how many calories in a Pizza?

The menu is very diversified.  There is much to choose from.  There is a computer kiosk in the waiting area that has a touch screen where you can view nutritional info.  This info is also online:  Nutritional info of UNO's items, including deep dish pizzas.  The individual sized pizza has 3 servings and the Regular sized pizza has 6 servings.  For example the Numero Uno Deep dish pizza that we had was 6 servings at 640 calories each.  This adds up to:  1920 calories for the individual pizza (if you ate the whole thing), and 3840 calories for the Numero Uno Deep dish REGULAR pizza. 

Not counting the side dishes the Rosemary Chicken at Unos counts as 2 servings and the calories per serving was 250.  This adds up to 500 calories for the whole meal.  Note, this does not include the 2 side dishes that comes with this meal, nor does it include the UNO breadstick that's included.  The breadstick is 210 calories by itself..  You can get more info at the main UNO's website (see above). 

Just for fun,
How much running do I have to do to burn those extra calories?

If I ate the entire regular deep dish UNOs pizza (3840 calories), I would have to run 34.6 miles.  Okay.  That's more than a marathon (about 1.3 marathons to burn one pizza).  If I ate the personal sized pizza which is 1920 calories, I would have to run 17.3 miles.  Either way, it is more than I'm willing to run...  Wow...

Each mile burns about 111 calories for me.
