Chicago Style/Deep Dish Pizza

My friend from Chicago recommended Lou Malnati's for good Chicago style pizza so I gave it a try. I have been to 3 different locations but Elk Grove was the most recent and the pizza seems consistent from what I can tell. I stopped here for lunch due to being near the interstate as I was driving... read more

We ordered take out so we could eat it back at our hotel instead of waiting for a table. The crust was really good. Nice and crunchy and buttery. We tried the sausage pizza and a vegetarian pizza with spinach and mushrooms. Both were delicious. We also ordered a gluten free crust pizza which I'm told was really good as... More

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
