The best deep dish pizza!

Not only that I make sure to get my "Lou's deep dish butter crust sausage " 2-3 times a month but every time I get visitors from out of town ,no matter , family, friends or business associates ,I always give them a taste of Chicago! "LOU MALNATI'S PIZZERIA " "That's what pizza is all about "!!!

Lou Malnati's has great pizza whether dining in or having it delivered. Both their deep dish and thin crust pizza are of high quality.

Lou Malnati's has the best pizza around. We usually order the Chicago Classic Large, cheese and sausage. Atmosphere wise, it is loud, basic in its rough decor and warm and comfortable place to be. You have to go there at the right time otherwise the wait can be long. It is a great place for young and old and everyone... More

We were able to get a table pretty fast. Once we ordered, we did wait for our food for a while. Our waitress was very nice and gave us a lot of time because we really weren't sure what we wanted to order. The pizza was delicious and it was worth the wait. Because once we ordered, we waited for... More

This establishment has been a long standing family tradition. We love the pizza especially the butter crust deep dish and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. We always get the deep dish since that is what Lou's is known for but the crust on the thin crust pizza is wonderful.

We went for lunch on January 2 with another family. We had 2 large pizzas and found them to be great. Server was friendly and attentive. This was a busy place when we were there.

Great deep dish pizza, say no more! Easy parking and service is generally good. Gets a bit crowded on the weekends, meaning the food is worth the wait.
