We ate at Lou's and ordered too much food. You have to call ahead to order your pizza (deep dish anyway). You order appetizers, sides & desserts there. Grown men can't really eat more than a slice & a half. I was stuffed before my I finished my first piece. Did I stop eating? No, I finished it but couldn't... More

When in Chicago this is a must eat dish. There are other deep dish pizza places in Chicago, but they all pale in comparison to Lou's. You must have the buttercrust- it is flaky and decadent! The Lou's is a great choice for those who like pepperoni, but I prefer their sausage pizza. It is a slab of heart attack... More

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.
