Coming to Chicago for the weekend, one thing we wanted to do was have Chicago style pizza. I had just listed to a podcast that mentioned the "fabulous" one they serve at Mulnati's in Elk Grove---and that's where we were going to be! Perfect! It was mid afternoon so only a couple of other tables filled. Our waitress assured is... More

My BFF and I ate at Lou Malnati's while enjoying a fun weekend sightseeing in the Chicago area. We're two average-sized women with average appetites but even as hungry as we were, we realized after our food came that we could have VERY easily split both the house salad as well as an individual-sized pizza. Sadly, we had to leave... More

The pizza here is delicious. My husband and kids had the pepperoni, and I had one with mushrooms, spinach, and tomatoes. Both were very good, and the pizza sizes were fair for the cost. They do take awhile to cook, but the menu clearly states this on the pizza page, so you know what to expect. My only complaint about... More

Excellent deep dish pizza and friendly staff. We recently visited Lou's, and enjoyed a salad and Lou's Classic that is vegetarian. Was very flavorful, and excellent butter crust.

Not sure the 90 minute wait for the pizza was worth it. Most folks would say YES but we are just not sure. The crust was a bit hard for our liking and the cheesy bread was missing flavor. Could have used some garlic and salt. Service was OK, waitress forgot a few things and was not very attentive. I... More

I am not a fan of deep dish pizza. But this was great. The location is easy to find. Interior is a bit old which gives it some character. The service was fantastic. Pizza was great. The whole pie was vey good. The bruschetta was very good also. The beer was cold. The only negative was that it was very... More

As good as the other traditional deep dish joints in Chicago. Laid back, good service. Good for families.

Went here after reading stellar TripAdvisor reviews and verbal recommendation from a gentleman on the airport shuttle. The exterior and general ambiance is not impressive, it is a casual no frills place. But we were wowed by the food. Shared a Malnati salad, full of delicious toppings and amazingly flavored dressing, just the right amount. Everything fresh and romaine cut... More
