About Us

“Worth Beggin’ For” is how we want to be remembered as you leave satisfied. Our unique recipes have created a cult following these past 10 years!

We have often been asked: “What makes our pizza so addictive?” We will never tell ; )

Our Business

Panhandler’s Pizza opened for business in Wauconda, in early 2007 and in Island Lake in February 2013. It wasn’t long before this family operated restaurant raised the bar of high quality customer service. Here at Panhandler’s restaurant we take pride in our work and continue to strive to make something great into something even better.

Panhandler’s outlook is simple, give the customers what they want and they will keep coming back for more. Over the last few years it has been a team effort to transform our dream into a reality and our Panhandler’s employees have risen to the challenge of making our family restaurant into the place that we have always dreamed it would be.

Who We Are

PanHandler’s is owned and operated by a local couple who graduated from Wauconda High School class of 1993.

PanHandler’s maintains a dedicated staff of local high school and college students.
