Absolutely worth the wait! Pizza was unique and delicious. Can't wait to try their mail order service and enjoy Chicago pizza in Pittsburgh!

We had a wonderful special salad. The pizza was good but not as good as the hype. The tiramasu dessert was excellent. They offer a 10% military discount or free dessert! Nice first night!

I ate here for lunch and sat at the bar. I ordered Minestrone soup and a small deep dish (pep and mush). Both were very good. The bartender who waited on me was very friendly and we had a long conversation about life in Chicago. It really added to the experience. Great place to stop for a pie!

We stayed overnight in the city for our anniversary and had always wanted to give Lou's a try, but never found ourselves close enough to walk in. We did a lot of on-foot adventuring in 24 hours but lemme tell you - THIS was the highlight of our trip! The wait time was as-expected for a Friday night so we... More

Lou Malnati's is hands down the best Chicago style deep dish pizza in the city! Having grown up around the Chicago area, I've tried all the main local Chicago chains of deep dish pizza and Lou's has always been my go to. Whether you dine in or order take-out, I've never been disappointed with the freshness of the pizza. In... More

We always order more than we can eat. The small Malnati Chicago Classis butter crust deep dish is plenty for 2, we also order the smaller Malnati salad as an appetizer because the pizzas take a bit to bake. Topping off the feast I ordered the Chocolate Chip Pizza individual and it was fantastic to finish off with something sweet.

My Uber driver recommended Lou Malnati's as the best deep dish in Chicago. I'm glad I took him up on this recommendation! The restaurant was full, but luckily I did not have to wait too long for a table. Calamari - I had high hopes for this appetizer, but unfortunately it fell short. For starters, there was barely better breading.... More
