The vinegared slaw is amazing. I've tried just about every meat on the menu too, and haven't been disappointed yet.
My personal favorite is the plate of pulled pork, with beans and slaw. It's only like $8, and it's some of the tenderest meat in town.
I used to live a couple blocks from Lou Malnati's in River North: http://www.loumalnatis.com/
The basic structure of the pie you're describing sounds like anything you'd get at Malnati's, Giordanos, or Gino's East. At any of those places, eating the first slice of a pie is a tricky operation (cheese stays molten longer under all that sauce), but after a few minutes it settles down a little and then you can inhale.
I haven't tried the pie at Via Chicago yet (haven't been back to PDX in a year or so) but your experience as detailed in the review just sounds like someone eating deep dish for the first time after a life of thinner-crust pizza. You eat 2-3 slices max, wash it down with a pitcher of beer then go enjoy your coma.
