Doesn't taste like regular pizza, but good. Fresh tomatoes, layer of sausage, and not, as I expected, soggy. Not saucy or cheesy. But if you have to go somewhere, order delivery or pick-up ahead of time, so you don't waste hours waiting to get in,...More

This was one reason I couldn't wait to go back home to Chicago--the pizza. Well, to be honest, the food overwhelmingly in Chicago is excellent. This was the city that transformed me into a foodie before that term was ever in vogue. Lou's is excellent...More

We elected to sit outside when we arrived, but after a while it looked as if it were going to rain, so we asked to be moved inside. The restaurant was very accommodating and re-seated us quickly. We were told that it takes 30 minutes...More
