The Windy City Pizza and BBQ team continues to be deeply gratified and humbled by the strong support our San Mateo and Mid-Peninsula community has given us as we work through this global pandemic.
We are so heartened seeing the familiar faces of our long-term loyal regulars for “no contact” pick and curbside orders. And – to our delight – we are welcoming countless new customers, which inspires all of us during these tough times. This steady flow of business keeps the fires lit in our pizza oven and Texas BBQ pit!
During the weeks of sheltering in place, folks are ordering food to take a break from cooking, and to support local restaurants like Windy City. We very much appreciate all the support we have received from our loyal customers. But it’s natural to be concerned about the safety of ordering in food while trying to practice social distancing to stay healthy.
“Health authorities affirm that there is no evidence that food or food packaging is causing the spread of coronavirus,” said Tamika Sims, PhD, Director of Food Technology Communications at the International Food Information Council (IFIC).

When it comes to barbecue, “low and slow” is the best term used to describe the cooking process.
