While passing through the Chicago area, I drove 25 miles from my hotel in Joliet to eat here. We arrived at 8:00pm on a week-day so there was no waiting to sit down. It was worth all the effort to drive there. We started out with the spinach cheese loaf; it was so good that I ordered another one to... More

Rather a review phone handling skills when trying to ask if they accept reservations. Early on a Sunday afternoon, called and asked if Lou Malnati's will take a reservation for 9 early that evening. Their answer was no, which is OK. The Gentleman on the phone said they however take "pre-orders". I asked how did this work, he stated if... More

Deep dish was on the Hubby's mind and we made a 45 minute drive because there is no comparison. Aurelios is more than decent; pizzeria uno and due OK but when you need a fix nothing else will do. The buttery crust melts in your mouth solo. But top it with chunky tomato and cheese you could pull like a... More

Came here with the boy for dinner on 10/09.. We were expecting a wait but there wasn't one and we were promptly seated. It started getting a little busier after we had sat down so luckily we came when we did! Started with the spinach cheese bread and a grilled chicken Caesar salad. And we ordered a small pepperoni deep... More

We visited early on a Saturday evening, and we called ahead just like we did on our previous visit. This time they told us calling ahead would shorten, not eliminate our wait. I'm okay with that. When we arrived, they told us it would be about 30 minutes and we were actually seated in about 20 minutes. The food was... More

This is the best place for deep dish in the city - this coming from someone who has eaten at all the famous places. The product is consistent an delicious. Make sure that you get the butter crust because it really adds to the crust consistency. Here's a tip if you are getting it for carry out. Ask for it... More

I love this salad more than any anywhere else (the Lou Malnati salad). The pizza is recognized as one of the best. I like their deep dish but I get extra sauce for my preference. I have business lunches or go here with the family for dinner. Never anything but good. If getting a sausage pizza consider crumbled instead of... More

Try their deep dish Chicago style sausage pizza. The butter crust is delicious. When weather is nice, ask for a table outside. I've also utilized their party room on several occasions. The menu is very reasonable and filling.

The crust was too hard. I ordered coffee and the server said they ran out of cream. But she ended up finding some. The coffee was cold and I didn't get any utensils. I won't be going back to this restaurant.

I have been to the Chicago area MANY times. No visit is complete without grabbing at least a small taste of Chicago style pizza. Often, I'm forced to try whatever pizza is local to my destination. And while I enjoy many pies out there, the record MUST be set straight. I just traveled to Naperville for a conference and mentioned... More
