Lou Malnati's has the best pizza. We love the thin crust but our favorite is " the Lou" (Spinach, mushroom, onions with a thick crust).

Malnati's is a take out pizza place. I pre-ordered and paid on-line and was given a time that the pizza would be finished. It was done exactly on time! The toppings were fresh and delicious. The crust seemed to have cheese somewhere in the layers. The two of us were hungry and ordered the the largest pizza, which states it... More

Lou Malnati's is the godfather of deep dish pizza! A traditional favorite of locals for generations, their pizzas come second to none. Our order for a family of 4 is always a large, deep dish spinach pizza with their house salad. There's always a few pieces leftover which we devour the next day. This location is carryout only, but Evanston... More

Great taste. Sample tray. Salads are my wife's favorite. Parking can be an issue around dinner hour.

They load the pizza with sausage, no skimping here. Also the Lou Malnatti salad is fabulous and their salad dressing is yummy. Not eat-in. Take out or delivery.

Known for one of the best Chicago deep dish pizzas, this is take out only. They do have a thin crust too, but deep dish is the reason they exist. Some salads and sodas are also available. Other branches have sit-down eat in.

The title of the review says it all. Ate there the other night, had the Lou's and it was like a giant grease pie.
