This is absolutely the best pizza we have ever had. We love the buttery cornmeal crust. Make sure you ask for the deep dish uncut. It keeps the crust crispy. Also their Malnati is salad is amazing.

Their deep dish crumbled sausage and mushroom or their deep dish cheese are favorites. The thin crust Lou's special (vegetarian) is a must. Kids love it, and us old guys do too. In fact, writing about it has my mouth watering. I'm tempted to order one for supper tonight. This is a carry out location. Call ahead and the pizza... More

This is a carry out store, no tables, etc. But is great for pick up. They have frozen version's if you want it for some time they are not open. I really like the butter crust. I really enjoy leftovers also. They have side salads, liters of soda.

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.
