This pizza is so good is will make you question the meaning of life! If you're in town and you want to live life without regrets, come here at least once. The service is great and the food is incredible. Best deep dish pizza I've had in Chicago. Also, the best pizza I've ever had. I've lived in NYC and... More

Fabulous food and GREAT service. I love the salad the best, but of course the pizza. I tried a new drink at the waitresses suggestion. It was good

Food was very good but we were in a hurry and needed our pre-ordered pizza to be on time. Pizza was half hour late which made for a rushed meal.

The pizza is great. Especially like the stomach Both thin and pan. Have been in the restaurant and had delivery. Sometime the delivery takes a little longer than an hour but worth waiting for. Would like a little more variety in the menu

We visited this place on a Saturday night. It was rockin. Full house and a wait. Very friendly girls at the check in and we waited for a little bit but not awful. You have to start with the Malnati's salad. A nice house salad but with a great dressing. Fresh and delicious. The pizza was fabulous. Easily the best... More

Lou Malnati's offers a classic Chicago deep dish pizza. We found their pies to be simple (not clogged with a hundred ingredients) brightly flavorful and filling. We very much enjoyed the medium pepperoni pie with a house salad. My wife found the classic vinegret to be too heavy in vinegar so she asked for 1000 Island. We had too full... More

If Dorthy in the Wizard of Oz was a deep dish pizza fan- she would have yearned for Lou's and forgotten about Kansas, Great crust, more tasty sausage than one can imagine(Chicago style) and a layer of cheese topped with a delightful fresh tomato sauce - If you got the time - don't miss it - service is usually quite...
