One of the original locations with one of the best pizzas in the world. I had to have an original - Milnati Chicago Classis - with sausage and the buttercrust. Super friendly staff that seems to be honestly happy to be dining with them. Between the food and great service, I can't wait to get back to Chicago!

In the Chicago suburbs for a quick business trip, we could not leave without Chicago style deep dish pizza. So, when our meeting broke a little early we headed or O’Hare with a short detour through Elk Grove and a stop for lunch at Malnati’s. This is a chain with several around town but we were not disappointed. We got... More

Chicago is know for its pizza and these guys do it the best. You have to be patient but its well worth the time. If you like sausage get the classic that has a complete layer of sausage and a butter trust. 2 pieces of these guys and your stuffed. It's incredible food!

The kind of pizza Chicago is famous for--thick, cheesy and crusty! Thank goodness this kind of pizza is not available at home or I would weigh 300 pounds! Warm, friendly atmosphere with wonderful waitress who suggested we split a salad to accompany the pizza. She was right--it was enough food. Be prepared to wait 30 minutes for the awesome delicacy...

We went on a Monday Night and we got our appetizers and then 2 minutes later the pizza came. It was a Monday night and horrible service.

Food as always is wonderful. Staff and management could use a bit of training on their customer service skills.

We were a family of 6 for dinner. Wait was approx 45 mins but we were able to preplace our pizza order before being seated. Staff was polite, side salad was quite large & I really enjoyed the creamy lemon garlic dressing. Deep dish pizza was very tasty! Recommend!

We met a friend here for dinner. We went to Lou's when we visited Chicago many years ago and loved it. She recommended the Chicago style deep dish and we were not disappointed! Perfect pizza. The house made sausage is really excellent. We ordered the chip/dip appetizer and the three dips were good, but the chips were the best! We... More

I've never had a pizza like this one. I've had deeeeep dish where the crust was like bread. I've had tossed crust - thin and thick. But this was new. I liked it! But I liked the salad even better! Try it!
