★★★☆☆ I ate both the chicken & beef Mama Supreme Pizzas & the chicken sandwich. All are good & the prices are very reasonable for adequate servings.
10/01/2012 - I have been patronizing this place for almost 4 years & I am sad to say that the quality of the pizza has declined. The pizza is dry & the toppings are more sparse. Posted on October 8, 2012
★★★★★ I ordered a Large Pizza with Gyro meat & Jalapenos. The pizza was delicious and the pizza sauce they used was amazing. We also tried the spicy chicken sandwich which has boneless pieces of chicken tikka in it and it was good as well as their chicken nuggets. If you go to their website they have some great deals on their. Posted on January 5, 2011
★★★★☆ As a long-time resident of New York, had the natural craving for pizza on relocating to the North Shore of Chicago. I have tried many claiming to be the best, however I can honestly state that this establishment rates near the top here (aside from it being Halal). This is a take-away place only. The staff is friendly and the orders are prepared fresh and in a timely manner. A pizza place that offers Halal toppings (yes, even the pepperoni and ham) - from suppliers that are authenticated Halal meat purveyors. For those that require an extra "kick"- they offer spicy chicken tikka that is quite good. Posted on May 31, 2010

★★★★★ I always passed by this place when going to my friends house. One day since we were hungry we decided to give this place a try.To my surprise the name of the place (Mama Maria's) caught me off guard when I found out it was a family run business by People of Pakistani Origin. On entering the place,we were greeted and welcomed by the staff. They are a fully 100% zabiha permises. Anything you order is Zabiha including the pepperoni and sausage. We were also surprised to know that they make chicken tikka which is my has become my favorite takeout item along with the pizza. They have surely made me a long time customer. Posted on May 15, 2009
★★★★☆ Assalamu Alaykum-
Be careful. I have been there a few times and have learned that certain items are halal (zabiha) and others are not. If you ask the mexican worker there he will tell you everything is zabiha but it is not true. The signs on the window indicate which are zabiha and you should specify when ordering. For example I ordered buffalo wings and was not told they were not zabiha until the next time I went. The chicken tikka is always zabiha and is very good. The chicken nuggets, breaded wings, and chicken tenders are the type you buy frozen in a box (breaded type) they are also pretty good they come with an option of ranch and barbeque sauce. These are different from the buffalo wings which were not halal. The gyros and chicken sandwhich are also zabiha. The chicken sandwhich is a roll up sandwhich in a flat naan type not on a bun. I hope this helps. Posted on August 21, 2008
★★★☆☆ No doubt it is tastey. But they sell pepperoni pizzas aswell and am not sure if that is Halal.
This is a take away place so u can't sit and have food. No consideration for ambience etc.
I think it is not 100% Halal as workers are muslim but they sell peperoni as well. I won't go there again. Posted on July 22, 2008
★★★★☆ Very friendly Pizza carry out restaurant. They only have I think one item remaining now that is non-zabihah. Their meat is definetly zabihah as of last I inquired. Above average food. Posted on June 12, 2008
★★★★★ This place is pretty good. But you will have to ask for halal stuff. They have different areas and ovens for the halal and not halal stuff. The chicken tikka is pretty dang good. The Chicken tikka or the gyro pizza is also good. Posted on November 5, 2007
★★★★★ It's a reasonable place for a reasonable price. They have Pizza with Chicken, Gyros and now Peperonni as ingridient. Thier Chicken Tikka is bakes in Pizza over and tastes really good. I have no complains from this place. Posted on July 19, 2007
★★★★☆ One of few zabiha restaurants outside of Devon. The gyros and chicken seem a bit undercooked to me. Pizza is above average. If you live around Des Plaines and don't want to go to Devon this place is OK. Prices are very reasonable. Posted on March 26, 2007
