Some Malnatis are carry out only. Others have sit down eating. This location is carry out only. Both deep dish and thin crust pizzas are excellent but Malnatis is known more for its deep dish. Get pizza uncut so it retains heat better.

I ordered a deep dish pizza and it wasn't that good. The crust was a little too hard and not enough sauce and cheese. I thought that the customer service was good.

I can't understand the following that Lou's has established - apart, perhaps, for their deep-dish pies [and even those are lacking if you're a fan of real Italian-sausage]. Their thin-crust pizza, e.g., their sausage-pizza's, are almost flavorless. They don't [and - get this, they're proud...More

My adult kids who live out of town expect a fresh Lou Malnati pizza to be in the kitchen when they arrive from the airport! It's the best pizza. They even have a gluten free one now.

I always get a take-away deep dish spinach and mushroom pizza when I'm in town - it's fabulous! (Make sure you order ahead as the shop always seems to have lots of people waiting to pick their orders up).

Deep-dish or thin-crust; they're consistent. It's take-out or delivery - only, no seating. Order ahead, particularly on weekends.

Wonderful pizza, but wish we could sit down and enjoy it while it's hot! The storefront can get crowded, and it takes a LONG time for them to prepare you pizza, so be sure to call ahead.
