I have had Lou's pizza before and this again was divine. It just tastes so good. Was good to eat while catching up with a friend. Pity I can not get it in New Zealand but it does give me something to look forward to when I visit Chicago each year.

First time eating Chicago's deep dish pizza. Someone recommended and we were very satisfied with the service and food. There was a 30 minute wait, but they will allow you to pre-order your food while you wait for a seat.

The pizza is my favorite and the service is always good. Parking can be a little tricky . When people come from out of town that is the place we like to take them. Everyone enjoys it.

We found ourselves in the NW suburbs and unable to make it into the city for real deep dish pizza. I'd forgotten about this great spot - it's been there for years and has plenty of character, not far from OHare. Enjoyed great martinis and mojitos, then a yummy combination app platter (we rarely do the fried food thing anymore,... More

In a world where so many Chain restaurants want you to have a manufactured experience that comes off feeling like they are trying to hard. This place seemed was more of a honest experience where people aren't trained and every word coming out of everyone's mouth wasn't download from a corporate head office email! Food was great my daughter and... More

We came during peak dinner time and had to wait for a table, so if you have no patience come at an off peak time. While we waited we were able to look at a menu and order our food prior to getting a table. We only waited about 15 minutes for a table and another 15 for our food.... More

What's more to say. If you want true deep dish Chicago pizza this is the place to get it. They also have thin crust pizza (why?) salads and sandwiches. Their cream garlic dressing is out of this world. Ever time we're in Chicago this is a must stop.

Great pizza with the authentic Chicago feel! I've had a few other Chicago originals and this was by far the best. Could add more selection on beer, especially local craft beer.

Maybe it's because we aren't deep dish pizza fans and therefore ordered the thin crust, but we thought the pizza was good but not great. The service was pretty good. Our waitress not only delivered the food to our table, but also served it in our plates). We had a large half sausage/half pepperoni thin crust pizza. We liked the... More
