This pizza is good but, in my opinion, just okay compared to other Chicago pizzas. The deep dish is surpassed by Giordano's and Pat's Pizza - both have tastier crusts. The thin is surpassed by Pizano's and Father and Son - both are simply tastier. But Lou Malnati's does the trick when you're hungry for pizza. It is the favorite... More

Both the deep dish and thin pizza are very good. We've had the chunky tomato sauce, which most people seem to prefer but the alterative "thin crust" sauce is very good and preferable to those who don't like chunks. Easy to park on Shermer unless there is an event at the Village Green

The "lou" is the best pizza I've ever had. I always order it well done, extra 5 minutes in the oven ... phenomonal! There is a salad (can't recall the name) I want to say the "lou" salad, but I think I'm mistaken. I think it's safe to assume that any salad here is going to be good. I'll be... More

This pizza is second to none. Nothing is better than a sausage and pepperoni deal dish. Delivery shows up just as fresh as though I was eating it on site.

We love Lou Malnati's pizza. Both the deep dish and thin crust pizzas are delicious and made with quality ingredients. And their Malnati's salad with the sweet vinaigrette dressing is great. This location is a take out only location.

The very best deep dish pizza and the thin crust is by no means a disappointment. Parking is a little challenging but worth the inconvenience.

This is what Chicago deep dish pizza is all about. The thin pizza is also great, as are the salads. This is takeout only.
