“Great Pizza”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

We had never had "Chicago Style" pizza, but this was outstanding. We called to see if we needed reservations, and they suggested we come about 9:30 on a Friday night. We were seated right around 9:30, having pre-ordered our pizzas so the wait wasn't as long once we had our table. We ordered the house specialty pizza, and the sausage was phenomenal. And it was quite tasty the next morning, too!

“Holy deep dish!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

I had never had a deep dish pizza like the one I had here and needless to say I was very satisfied. I like the location and loved the atmosphere when I got inside. It really feels like an authentic Chicago environment.

“Can't do Chicago without a Deep Dish”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

You can't really call a visit to Chicao complete without sampling some deep dish pizza, and Lou Malnati's has some of the best. Lots of choices here, but a couple of the best are the The "Lou" with spinach, mushrooms, sliced roma tomatoes and three cheeses, and the Malnati Chicago Classic, with a sausage patty, extra cheese and tomato sauce on buttercrust.

“Great Pizza!”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Fantastic Chicago deep dish pizza! We had an excellent server and the food was great. We ate at Lou's for lunch and enjoyed our experience. By joining the email club and making a small minimum purchase we received a coupon for a free appetizer which was nice. We highly recommend this restaurant if you're looking for authentic Chicago deep dish pizza!

“Thin Crust is good too”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Yes Chicago is known for it's deep dish pizzas, but we had the Thin Crust Pepperoni pizza at Lou Malnati's. This is very good thin crust with a buttery flavor. Highly recommend this pizza!
