My adult kids who live out of town expect a fresh Lou Malnati pizza to be in the kitchen when they arrive from the airport! It's the best pizza. They even have a gluten free one now.

I always get a take-away deep dish spinach and mushroom pizza when I'm in town - it's fabulous! (Make sure you order ahead as the shop always seems to have lots of people waiting to pick their orders up).

Deep-dish or thin-crust; they're consistent. It's take-out or delivery - only, no seating. Order ahead, particularly on weekends.

Wonderful pizza, but wish we could sit down and enjoy it while it's hot! The storefront can get crowded, and it takes a LONG time for them to prepare you pizza, so be sure to call ahead.

I just did a huge order for a big party I was having. I think they have the best deep dish pizza in Chicago. The salads are great, the beef sandwiches are great and the sides for beefs are always fresh. I prefer to dine-in when I'm with my family. Everyone at the party loved the food(of course). I like...

Been to big Chicago places where I was raised. Their thin and thick crust pizzas are the best in my opinion. Butter-crust adds a little more crispness to the thick crust. You can get under cooked,regular or overcooked. Great for Hawks final games. A real winner.

My daughter loves their pizza so much, we have to send her back to college with a bunch of the frozen pizzas. I love that they sell a nice-sized $9 pizza that is frozen. It's an easy quick pizza meal.
