This is one of our favorite pizza places to visit when visiting our friends in Buffalo Grove. Sometimes we eat at the restaurant, but we normally prefer to pick it up and eat it at home. The pizza is outstanding, with mouth watering crust and...More

We tried their thin pizza and it was excellent. We have always ordered their pan pizza, but now we are also a fan of their thin pizza. We ordered this for takeout.

We've enjoyed Lou's deep dish pizza for years. Especially with their "butter crust". One of the great ways to enjoy it, we've found, is by ordering the Personal Pan pizza size. That way everyone gets exactly what they want on their pizza. No more fighting...More

There's nothing quite like deep-dish pizza in Chicago. When we're here, this is the deep-dish treat we choose. Especially tasty because we don't eat a lot of pizza anymore, so the spouse considers this an ultimate treat. Order it at least 45 minutes ahead for...More

We wanted to have a real deep dish pizza. Lou's rated very high on TripAdvisor and after going with my family I know why. The serves are very nice and appetizers and signature pizza is all it is suppose to be.
