Visited here on our arrival and were not pleased with either the service or the food. Waiter service was poor and slow. Pizza was very dry. Would not visit again

Only tried 4 or 5 deep dish places in Chicago but so far I think Lou Malnati's is the best. We got takeout for the superbowl and despite being busy, the food was still great and on time. The portions are huge as with most...More

Dined around 7pm and was told the pizza would take 30 mins to arrive but the Bruschetta and drinks would be quicker. True to their word the food arrived bang on time and was delicious. Service was great and the food excellent (Chicago deep pan).

My 1st experience with Chicago style pizza. Different but very good. My wife's 2nd Chicago pizza experience. Her 1st experience wasn't so good so she was hesitant to order it again. She was glad she did @ Lou's!

We had the Lou Special. Checks of tomato in the sauce which I loved. The garlic bread was good. The staff was a bit flat but made sure the drinks were full. Certainly recommend the Pizza.

Can we just talk about the dip trio with pizza chips!? It was to die for! The garlic one was seriously heaven on earth. The pizza takes a little bit to cook, so do yourself a favor and grab an appetizer, specifically the dip trio....More

We went straight from the airport to Lou's for pizza and beer and Lou did not disappoint. Some of us wanted tomato/spinach and others wanted sausage so we split it right down the middle for a deep dish dream deal. It was buttery crusted, deep,...More

There are many choices when it comes to Chicago Deep dish pizza and not shortage of opinions. We chose Lou Malnati's and couldn't have been happier. The butter crust plain cheese pizza for the purist at heart (us), was a winner. I'm sure all of...More

My family walked to Lou’s following a Cubs game. (It’s appx 45 mins away - walking - from Wrigley.) We ordered 2 small deep dish pies and they were delicious! Lou’s crust is really sensational. We started with the house salad, which was quite good...More
