Real Chicago pizza!

Our first time having Chicago pizza. Pretty good pizza, especially liked the sausage on it. It's big! So whatever size you and your party think you need, get a size smaller!

Long wait time. Get there early. Good pizza, not my favorite, but delicious deep dish. They also had other menu options. I chose the grilled chicken breast as an entrée. It came with sautéed mushrooms and spinach. Very tasty.

It's hard to add anything original to the reviews already posted, other than to say we were traveling from out of town, asked our host for the best deep dish pizza in town, and were told to come to Lou's (which has several in the area, although Elk Grove Village was closest to our hotel). There was virtually no wait... More

They served my family the best pizza we have ever ate. The place was clean, the staff was great, food was even better.

While in town for my son's graduation we planned to get an authentic deep dish pizza, so when we were told that Lou Malnati Pizza was the best in town THEY WERE RIGHT!! My wife and I were so stuffed and feeling good after eating our pizza there was no room for dessert! (so we took it to the room)... More

Never disappointed with this thick crusted pizza, here. The sauce tastes super fresh, due to the chunks of Roma tomatoes left in it. Thick cheese layers with mushrooms and onions...oh my! Why can't they relocate to St.Louis?? Love the rustic barnboard and wrought iron lighting but not a fan of the food/sauce splatters on the wall in our cubicle!

I ordered pizza delivery, even if I had to wait longer than usual to receive it as they are busy (I was told that before I ordered). The cheddar fried cheese is excellent. The tomato sauce that comes with it is not very acidic and it tastes great. I also ordered a small Chicago style sausage pizza and even if... More

We go to Lou's once a month and we love their Deep Dish Pizza. Our favorite is the Lou with Sausage. It has Spinach mix (enhanced with garlic, basil & onion), mushrooms and sliced tomatoes covered with three cheeses, on a garlic butter-crust and a layer of sausage. If you are not a fan of the Za, they also have... More
