“The Lou....”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

For pick up or delivery - this is the destination for deep dish in the neighborhood... for about half of our pizza orders.... The Lou especiallially is an all veggie pizza that is really delicious and must be tried to be enjoyed.
Although...pick up location in Buffalo Grove sometimes gets backed up and wait time can vary....the food is always great, nice staff and most of the time there's samples to share while waiting....

Reviewed November 28, 2012

Too delicious. Wether it's thin crust or pan, I think the secret is in the buttery crust. Yummmm! I would recommend this pizza to anyone.

Who doesn't like their pizza? Patio is a little cold. I would like to them remodel it. I would have more of my Christmas parties there.

“BEST CHICAGO DEEP DISH”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Elk Grove Village Lou's was the best in the 70's and still is we have moved since but meet there when out of town neighbors come to town . Buffalo Grove Restaurant and the Lake Zurich take out is awesome too , The deep dish butter crust is the best weather it is cheese and sausage or spinach and mushroom it is always great !
I think it is the best deep dish out there no if's and's or but's !!!!!

My son had his Wedding rehersal dinner at the Buffalo Grove in 2002 !

“Best Pizza There Is”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The crust on the thin crust pizza here is awesome. And, the deep-dish pizza is the best there is. The only problem is that there is always a long wait for a table (since the pizzas are made to order, and that takes quite a while). There's a way to avoid that, however. Call ahead and pre-order for a certain time. When you arrive, your pizza(s) will already have been started (it takes about 40 minutes), so you'll promptly be seated. You can then order appetizers and/or drinks, if you choose, since the pizza order won't be rushed out to you. Or, you can order for delivery!
