In 1968, Danny and Sandy Dalton decided to live their dream, and opened their first pizza restaurant, and they have been in the pizza business ever since. The first “Danny’s Pizza” was opened on the North side of Chicago. At that time we began the family tradition of serving a delicious pizza made using special ingredients and from our own family recipes. In Danny’s words “Good food is good business”. With the success of that first restaurant in Chicago, Danny knew he had a winner, and opened several locations throughout the Northwest suburbs over the years. In late 2012, Danny’s Pizza celebrated the grand opening of their new Downtown Elgin location at 231 Douglas Avenue.When Danny passed away in 1999, his wife Sandy, their children and grandchildren were all involved in working the restaurant and continue the family traditions to this day. There are now four generations that are part of the daily operations at Danny’s Pizza.Danny’s Pizza on Douglas is quickly becoming known as the spot for live entertainment in downtown Elgin, offering karaoke nights on Wednesday and Thursday nights and live bands on Friday and Saturday nights.
