  • Dick's Pizza is a reference to Dick Giordano, famous comic writer, penciler, and inker. The pizzeria is visually based on Chicago's own Giordano's Pizza. [1]
  • In the Chicago location in Ghostbusters Volume 1 Issue #13:
    • Hanging on the wall is Pates Baroni, a pasta ad from 1921 by Leonetto Cappiello
    • Also on the wall is a portrait of the ghost of Al Capone is standing in front of his tomb at Mount Carmel Cemetery in The Real Ghostbusters' "The Ghostbusters Live! from Al Capone's Tomb"
    • The Toga Ravioli frame references the late John Belushi's character John Blutarsky from "Animal House" in his toga outfit.
    • One of the underlings in Al Capone's Gang from The Real Ghostbusters' "The Ghostbusters Live! from Al Capone's Tomb" is in the portrait hanging above Ray's left shoulder
    • Near Egon are two frames featuring the Blues Brothers as done on commission by Dan Schoening. [2] [3]
    • Between Egon and Ray is a frame referencing Le Chat Noir, a 19th century cabaret in Paris
    • Outside the pizzeria, its phone number is displayed as 327-1977. This places it in the Lake View area of north Chicago.
  • In Ghostbusters Volume 2 Issue #5, page three, a Dick's pizza box is on the shelf by the Slime Scooper behind Ray.
  • On page 14 of Ghostbusters Volume 2 Issue #15, a Dick's Pizza box is near Egon.
