Love Lou's. This is a small store in a strip mall for pick up orders only. One of the best things about working around Chicago. Call in and pick up - enjoy!

We have ordered deep dish and thin crust for delivery. It always comes hot to the door. We also enjoy the occasional tiramisu for dessert, one order is large enough for two to share.

Too skimpy on the cheeses and tasteless crust to justify the price. Go to Geordanos and get generous everything and excellent taste.

Unlike other chains I can guarantee the consistency of their product. We choose the gluten free sausage crust. Lou's makes it better than anyone else serving the sausage crust.

Lou's is the best Chicago pizza. This location is carry-out only. Get it un-cut. If you get it cut, the crust gets a bit soggy by the time you get home to eat it.

Surprisingly good thin crust, crunchy and typically arrives in very good shape after delivery. Also a very good dinner salad.

Didn't disappoint - love this stuff and the salad is amazing too! Home made dressing. I ordered online and picked it up- boy that worked good. This is a pick up place only - no inside dining. Also, little hard to find. It is in a newer strip mall. When in Chicago... Pizza is a must!

This restaurant was recommended to us by all the locals, as the best Chicago Pizza! We were not disappointed. My only problem was I could only eat two pieces! My mind wanted to keep going, but my body wouldn't let me. In Carol Stream, it's just a take-out place, but there are other locations that are full restaurants. If you... More

#2 on list of things to do in Chicago (after getting Italian Beef), is getting great Chicago pizza and Lou's fits the bill. This location is convenient, but only does carryout or delivery. I am a fan of Lou's deep dish and this did not disappoint. I wasn't crazy about the thin crust my daughters got - but they thought... More

I usually love the pizza but the last couple of times the deep dish did not taste that great by the thin crest did, maybe it was me?
