Great Pizza, Very Busy

Finally got to try real Chicago pizza, and it was excellent. The Malnati Chicago Classic had a buttery crust, extra cheese, and really good sausage (none of that fennel tasting stuff). The large pizza was more than enough for four, and a deal at $21. The Malnati salad was also really good. The... read more

This place was by our hotel and we saw all the good reviews. We had to park in a distant overflow lot...we wondered how long we'd have to wait. We were pleasantly surprised to find their was no wait to sit outside on the deck. We lucked out because it was very quiet and pleasant out there. We had the... More

Their pizza to me is the best in Chicago. We always get the "Lou" deep dish style. If anyone asks me which pizza place to go to, I always say Lou's. Also, so very glad they finally opened one in Oswego.

I have lived in the area for 25 years and have tried them all. Lou's is far and away the best Chicago Style pizza. My preferred choice is the Deep Dish Spinach with Butter Crust. The crust is what makes it the best. I also like the spinach bread side. Lou's has sit down dinning, carryout, and for those of... More

The location might be tired and full of oldies.. But damn if this is not best pie in all of Chi! Simply great pie crust, cheese, and hand slapped sausage. Consistently the best.

Every trip I make to Schaumburg begins with a trip to Lou Malnati's and they never disappoint. My family has a requirement that I bring back a few pizzas when I travel. I have now mastered bring six pizzas in my checked baggage! Thanks, not only for great food, but the great service also.

Fried cheese cubes for appetizer and a malnati pie for dinner. There are a lot of Chicago style pizza options in the area but this is my fave. When I visit I hit malnati's on Schaumburg and Roselle roads. Good food and good memories.

I always order take out so I don't know the service in the dinner. For take out,thre is a separate building/entrance by the parking lot in the back. Parking is hard, if you want parking by the entrance but they have several lots, so no matter what time you go, you will find a parking spot. I always order from... More

I love Lou Malnati's Pizzeria in Schaumburg. GREAT food and service, warm comfortable facilities and convenient parking. I have never gotten a mediocre pizza there, whether thin crust, bread crust, or the heavy Chicago deep dish. This is the place to introduce people to Chicago pizza. Bring friends or family easy access for the handicapped.

Ive been to this Lou's many times over the years since they opened. My humble opinion is that Lou's is the best Chicago style pizza you can find but this location has slowly gone down in quality and service. The carry out and delivery only store in Lake Zurich puts Schaumburg to shame.
