We visit Chicago fairly often to see our daughter in college and most every time we're there, we either order or go to Lou Malnati's! The appetizers, salads and most of all, their Chicago style pizza is the best!! It's a must try! They even have frozen pizzas to take home with you!

In Naperville for the weekend and asked locals for suggestions on best place to have Chicago style pizza. Seated right away, server did not appear for 10 minutes or more. Server was knowledgeable about menu and made good suggestions. Once order was taken, we waited over an hour for any of our order to appear. Other tables seated after us... More

Had dinner here last week. We all had pizza. My grandson loved his but then he did order every optional extra and it turned out to be a very expensive pizza. My pizza was average and definitely not worth the price. I will not be returning here.

I wanted to go back to my old stomping grounds and order the Butter Crust deep dish pie I akways get. Service was OK but food was not as great as I remember. I am hoping that it was an isolated incident.

This old firehouse serves up the best pizza in the world. Get the Chicago Special. Even the salads are good here. The pizzas take awhile, but totally worth it. Sit outside on the porch if the weather is decent!

I got a Lou's special. Boyfriend got sausage. We had to wait over 30 minuets for two personal pan pizza. It was in afternoon, not busy. Pizza bland, not sure what fuss is about. I wouldn't recommend.

Like most everything people have their favorites. This is ours for pizza. Consistently good, always hot with lots of toppings Lou pleases everyone. Just great pizza the way Chicagoans want it.

While visiting the with my son we went to get some Chicago style pizza. We were not disappointed. It was very busy but we were able to get a table within 40 minutes. Once we were seated the server was friendly and attentive. The deep dish pizza is the best!!! It has a wonderful buttery crust, is well topped and... More
