Best deep dish in Chicagoland and the World!

I just did a huge order for a big party I was having. I think they have the best deep dish pizza in Chicago. The salads are great, the beef sandwiches are great and the sides for beefs are always fresh. I prefer to dine-in when I'm with my family. Everyone at the party loved the food(of course).

Wonderful pizza, but wish we could sit down and enjoy it while it's hot! The storefront can get crowded, and it takes a LONG time for them to prepare you pizza, so be sure to call ahead.

Been to big Chicago places where I was raised. Their thin and thick crust pizzas are the best in my opinion. Butter-crust adds a little more crispness to the thick crust. You can get under cooked,regular or overcooked. Great for Hawks final games. A real winner.

My daughter loves their pizza so much, we have to send her back to college with a bunch of the frozen pizzas. I love that they sell a nice-sized $9 pizza that is frozen. It's an easy quick pizza meal.

The hands down winner for deep dish Chicago pizza - according to myself and SO many Chicagoans. This location is take out/delivery only but have one with the butter crust and here is a tip - have it delivered uncut so it doesn't get soggy. Never, ever a disappointment!

This is simply the best deep dish Chicago style pizza! And, the quality and consistency among all of the locations is amazing. I am a native Chicagoan that moved to NY 20 years ago and there is no substitute for fresh out of the oven deep dish pizza, and Lou's is my favorite! The pizzas were delivered on-time and were...

When I'm in the mood for pizza this is where I order. I like the thin crust. The place in Highland Park is carry out and delivery only.

Lou's is a take out or delivery only but it is by far the best deep dish pizza anywhere. I am sure I eat there too much but it is just too good. My children and grandchildren agree. We are a Lou's family.
