As pizzerias go, this is probably the best mainstream one in the Chicago area. There is no way to go wrong with any choice here - even more so when you ask for the buttercrust option in your pizza.

The restaurant is in an old firehouse and has a firefighting theme. The deep dish pizza is the best we have ever eaten. It takes about a half hour to bake so might as well have an appetizer. Well worth the wait, with several locations in the Chicago area you can find it in any part of town.

Amazing deep dish pizzas. The long can get long especially on weekends, but well worth the wait and great for families.

Amazing food. The place can get a bit overcrowded, but food more than makes up for it. Pizza is very good, and service is also very prompt.

We love Lou Malnati's deep dish. It's a classic, it's consistent, and it's delicious. Also, try their stuffed spinach bread as an appetizer. Although it's kind of small, it packs a ton of flavor! The only thing that puts me off about this location is the amount of people-traffic. Obviously they can't control being awesome and having a ton of... More

We love Lou's! On a Friday and Saturday night, the wait is really long, so get there early or late. Our favorites: - thin crust pepperoni - deep dish cheese - Lou's salad This restaurant is family friendly and in an old firehouse. They also have carryout, but parking can be tough.
