Here in the Chicago North Suburbs, itís unusual to have a well-established business put in a game room. It is even more unusual for an established business to put in a game room with pinball, but Hitz Pizza and Sports Bar in Mundelein has done just that.

Hitz Pizza & Sports Bar in MundeleinHitz is known in our area for their thin crust pizza but they also have pan pizza, Chicago-style deep dish, and also their ‘double-decker’ pizza. The most common comment about Hitzís pizza is the generous amount of toppings and slightly sweet taste to the crust.

Pizza, drinks and good timesIn addition to pizza they have a full menu of sandwiches and Italian-style dinners. I heard a rumor that there are healthy things such as salad on the menu but cannot confirm this.

It’s not all pizza, but…Terri and I have gone several times with friends to Hitz for their Monday night bar bingo and half-price pizza. Terriís actually won a bingo round- a hat that she calls her ďBlingoĒ hat. On any†given Monday night there are 9 rounds of bingo led by an amusing caller that makes the bingo games come alive in a way that we find very entertaining.

Promo for Bingo at HitzThe winning card and prizeThe most recent Monday when we were leaving from Monday night Bar Bingo- we spotted Hitzís brand new game room. All of the machines were sitting there gleaming, just waiting to swallow some of our hard-earned money.

In the game room there are a couple of video games, a claw machine, an old-school Super Chexx dome stick hockey game and two pinballs: Sternís CSI and Terminator 3 – Rise of the†Machines.

Stern’s CSI at Hitz Pizza & Sports BarStern’s Terminator 3 at Hitz Pizza & Sports BarThe pinballs are in good-to-average condition – I would say that they could use a bit of a cleaning and a couple of light bulbs replaced, but all of the features work. They are both set on $1 per game pricing, with reasonable and attainable free game thresholds. It would appear that they are owned by an amusement company and not by Hitz.

Hitz has always been a fun and entertaining place – made more so with their new game room. If†you are in the area, Iíd suggest that you stop in and give them a visit.
