We lived in Wheeling for many years and enjoyed Lou's Pizza. Since moving to Texas I order their online pizzas and have them shipped here since we really miss the taste of a true Chicago style pizza

You can always count on the best Deep Dish pizza at Lou's. Chunks of fresh sausage and other ingredients make this the best. A crispy buttery crust gives extra flavor. Buffalo Grove is one of the few sit down locations. I have only been patronizing...More

Came for some deep dish after going a year without real Pizza in Texas and Lou's never disappoints. For a place known for deep dish the thin crust is amazingly good possibly my favorite thin crust also.

If you want fabulous pizza without having to go into the city then try this location it is our favorite Lou's! There is no comparison to any other Chicago-style deep dish in this area especially the crust. Be prepared to wait if you dine in...More

The battle of pizza's in Chicago, IL. My personal opinion... not comparable. They are both great pizza's, they might attract different clients/patrons. Lou Malnati's is less dense, more moist (more fresh tomatoes) and lighter (weight wise). For me, they are both great pizza's. Great experience....More
