Excellent (but rich)

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... read 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

The pizza just doesn't get any better. For authentic Chicago deep dish, it doesn't get any better. Had the entire family (9 of us)...service was great, atmosphere was good and quite simply the best pizza around.

If your are in the Elg Grove area, this is probably the best pizza in the area. I'm born and raised in Chicago, so I've had my share of awsome Chicago pizza. The main problem I have with this pizza is the tomato sauce. It's way too acidic. They need to learn to simmer the sauce for a few days... More

Great Chicago style and optional thin butter crust pizza. Ingredients are all quality. It is a real family restaurant and is very, very busy. The waits are not long as they move so many people through the restaurant on a regular basis. If you like traditional pizza this is 5-star!

As consistent as they come, the pizza is wonderful--the crust, the sauce, the cheese. A family favorite. The pan pizza is the classic, but the thin crust is also very good.

Each location has a different ambiance but regardless of which one you go to no trip to this Chicago is complete without a deep dish "Malnati's Chicago Classic". All others deep dish restaurants are imposters!

You think you are eating at the average pizza polar. Don't go in thinking I need to order 2 large pizza's unless you want a meal for the next day. WOW.
