Mm Chicago pizza

Lou's was very delicious. We ordered a small pizza for two and we were more than full when we left. Our service was kind of slow but it was a busy Friday evening.

Been visiting the Chicago area for several years now and for one reason or another was denied authentic Chicago deep dish pie. Frankly, I stopped believing this type of pizza existed. All the hype from my wife, our friends n family set high expectations. Lou's delivered. We ordered the chicken Caesar salad, small deep dish cheese for the kids, and... More

I wanted to test it out compared to Giordano's which is my favorite. I had it delivered to the hotel. They arrived in a timely manner. The pizza was good, and had a wonderful crust. If I am comparing them though, Giordanos is still top notch as far as taste in my book.

The pizza is fantastic. But being from the east coast I'm not sure it qualifies as pizza. The pie is enormous and filling. Had the salad and a large pie. More then enough food for everyone.

Everybody claims to have had the best pizza ever, sometime or somewhere, and one tends to smile and shrug it off. I submit that this is the best deepdish pizza and the best gluten free pizza EVER!!! Order the crust extra buttery, easy on the sauce, extra cheese, and whatever other topping you care for, and you will not regret... More

We live close and always order pick-up. Deep dish takes about 30 minutes, so keep that in mind. Seriously delicious stuff~ love their thin crust as well, you just can't go wrong!

Are you hungry? Well once you smell a deep dish pizza at Lou's you will always be hungry for an authentic Chicago Deep dish pizza! My personal favorite is the Lou's. Even though it is an all veggie pizza it is amazing. When you bite into this piece of heaven you would never guess it has no meat. When I... More

Look, there are thin crust lovers and deep dish lovers. I happen to like both but without exception, the very best deep dish pizza can be found at this Lou Malnati's. I have been going here for around 30 years and I can honestly say that I have never had a bad pizza here. People who rate Giordano's as great... More

We grew up in this area and this is the only deep dish pizza! Whenever we come back for a visit, we have to eat Lou Malnati's as often as we can because you can never get enough! Always ask for a seasoned pan and the butter crust!
