Part of The Fifty/50 Restaurant Group

Roots is a relaxed pizzeria & bar featuring malted crust pies & an all-Midwestern beer list, fresh pasta, incredibly popular salads, and a great atmosphere for friends and family.

Roots was the second concept from the Fifty/50 Restaurant Group with four locations across Chicago.

“Quad Cities-style” pizza is its own Midwestern breed, not comparable to Chicago’s own deep dish, New York style or Neapolitan. With a sturdy, chewy malt crust, spicy tomato sauce and a thick layer of cheese, these pizzas pride themselves on being devoid of pretension.

“Nothing fancy. Just some damn good pizza”
