For dinner we got (delivery) Lou Malnati's Chicago Style butter crust pizza - with sausage and pepperoni. I'm getting spoiled. I wish we had pizza like this in the Tacoma area.

We went to Lou Malnati's because it was a good place to stop for pizza on the way home for lunch. . There is plenty of off-street parking with easy access. The staff was friendly and efficient. The pizza was ready within a minute of the promised time. We ordered a medium deep dish sausage with half mushrooms on their... More

Eat at Lou's! The pizza and fun/sporty decor are the BEST! If you're from Lincolnwood/Chicago, you've already eaten here. If you are visiting Chicago, you'll feel right at home, at Lou's. This is a must-stop eatery. Enjoy! There are now a good number of Lou Malnati's restaurants, so if you can't make it to the Lincolnwood location, pick one nearest... More

This is the original Malnati's restaurant. It isn't fancy, but the pizza is the best. The only thing I don't care for is them angling for tips when you're getting carry-out pizza.

On the spur of the moment, some family members came in from out of town and wanted to have dinner with the local family members. Some one suggested Malnati's. A reservation was made for 12. We were seated together immediately, when we arrived. Our waitress quickly took the drink orders and gave us time to visit with each other before... More

Most folks visit here for their specialty, Delicious Butter Crust Pizza! And yes it is Awesome Delicious--however it also is terribly unhealthy. I work two doors down so I know the Menu well. So I wanted to highlight 4 of their delicious and very hearty choices that are Wonderful! As I have grown older I have become more health conscious... More

The best food but more than that the service by Ms. Jeree was top notch! The salad was amazing too! My first time ever being in Chicago and that was the first place I had lunch.

Best deep dish pizza in Chicagoland! We live near the original restaurant so that is where we dine. I assume it is similar,but do not know about quality of the food and service at the other locations. Pizza is ootstanding. Deep dish - but not as much bread as the competition. Butter crust is a must.

Food quality, salads, pizza - they know how to do it. Place could use a little face-lift, but not important in the grand scheme of their great food.
