Whether dining in or taking it home, Lou Malnati's provides some of the world's best deep dish pizza. It can get a bit busy on the weekends, but there is plenty of seating and the wait is usually not too bad. I prefer to place an order online and pick it up on my way home.

Wow... this was a great treat. We enjoyed the friendly services along with the best Pizza ever! The Spinach Bread was excellent, and the Veggie Deep Dish Pizza was out of this world. We were told that we should certainly eat Pizza at this place while visiting Chicago area. We are certainly happy that we did !

I was raised on Lou's. If your from Chicago you understand the pizza wars. But dont be fooled Lou's is the BOMB. I ship it out to family who gobble it up soon as it arrives.

It doesn't get much better than this. We ordered the "Chicago Classic" the medium that serves 3 is enough for 4. The tomatoes are the taste of Italy. Washed it down w/ chianti and finished with a sweet tiramisu. We're going back!

We had a group of 12 celebrating a 50 year old B-day. All in the group agreed that the EGV location serves the best deep dish out of all the other Lou Mal locations. Great pizza, great service. I also love this location because its easy to park.

Lou Malnati's is another of my favorite culinary indulgences when I'm in the Chicago area. Great deep dish pizza (try the butter crust) and their thin crust is good too. They offer take out and delivery to local hotels. If you love good pizza,you will love Lou Malnati's.

Always get the butter crust. Frozen take and bake pies are great to keep on hand. Carryout, delivered, or dinning room all work for me.

Best pizza in the Chicago area. Our server was absolutely the best server I have ever had. I wish I could remember his name. Their pizza sauce was by far the best I have ever had. It seems expensive but you get so much food for you money. If you get a chance try this place it is great.

I've had pizza in Rome, Naples, and Venice, Italy (and New York) yet I still prefer the Chicago deep dish served at Lou Malnati's! It is served hot and ready and it's a feast for the eyes and the taste buds! I even ate some cold the next morning and it was delicious. We arrived late at night, but they... More
