We ordered a medium deep dish pizza online, and went to pick it up. The pizza was ready at the time we requested it, and it was very good. We really enjoyed it. Too bad this place doesn't have seating options, so we have to ask for delivery or pickup.

Because of a gift card, my wife and I ordered 1 small and 1 medium pizza for a total of $27+. As promised the crusts were thin and crispy. The small was amply loaded with sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, peppers and garlic. However, these extras increased the cost by about 60% The medium, however, had about 2 small slivers of...

The pizza here is good. But pizza is a IL thing, so its kind of hard to find the best because their are so many good ones. But this one is pretty good.

This Lou Malnatis is a delivery/ carry out only. No matter, I picked up a pizza here and the staff there was outstanding. They must get training on customer service. The pizza was perfect. Nice to have this in the area.

Out of the area, and I keep trying a reason to go back to Naperville. Worth the 3 hour drive to go here. The brushetta is the best. Fresh and chilled like it is suppose to be served, and the toasted bread was perfect.

We generally are thin crust junkies but my honey wanted a deep pie and we got one from this LM location. It is only takeout - has a limited menu and can't possibly be a 5 star of anything. It's just a takeout pizza joint! BUT - they make a much better than Giordano's fully loaded pie with a lovely,... More

Got pizza and salads for take-out - both were to die for. Sorry I only had time for a single visit during the trip to Chicago. The wife liked Lou's better than anyone else in Chi. Thinking about ordering some frozen pies to be sent to my home down south.

I have been a fan of Lou Malnati's for over 30 years. I love their deep dish veggie pizza and the Malnati's salad is a meal in itself. If you want authentic Chicago pizza, then Lou's is definitely a stop you should make.

We went to the one in West Wrightwood. Restaurant is crowded, so booking is recommended. You can only sit at the bar if you order food. You can't order a drink and wait at the bar till a table gets free. Bar only serves beer, wine and soft drinks. No other variety of alcohol served. Pizza takes about 15-20 mins... More
