This was literally the best pizza I have ever tasted! I came all the way from London to try this on recommendation by a friend and it didn't let us down! Thanks for having us x

We usually love the pizza from Lou's but this last time it was real runny. It might be because my wife wanted her half to be the LOU's, but both sides had pools of water or oil on them.

Having grown up near the original Lou's I was so glad when we moved here many years ago and I found their take out store. We order and can pick it up in 30 minutes. I've also stopped by and gotten their frozen pizzas - just as good!

We ordered deep dish with cheese (our kids only eat cheese). The pizza was OK, but there was too much cheese and sauce for me. Service was good. The waitress was kind enough to make my kid a suicide (mixing all the flavors of soda). She kept our glasses full.

As a child growing up in the town of Roselle, IL it was always a treat for us kids to get in the car with our folks and drive to Addison to visit a place called John's Pizza. In 1976 my family moved to Buffalo Grove and one night my folks asked me if I'd like to join them for... More

This location is carry-out and delivery only. We have never had a bad experience here! They stay steady with customers, but if you call ahead for pick about 30 minutes in advance, you can usually minimize the waiting. You can also place your order online. But let's be honest...nobody really minds waiting around for perfect pizza! Also, there penne ala... More

Yes, I do like New York style pizza.....ll But, growing up in Chicago, this is something I crave..........and, even though many spots in other states serve "Chicago style" deep dish.......they never nit the mark. Is it the crust, the high quality tomatoes, cheese, sausage? Why yes.....it is all of these. Every Chicagoan has their favorites. I grew up on Uno's.....but... More

My visit started with a friendly greeting at the door. The hostess showed us to a booth that was comfortable. Our waitress was beyond pleasant. She went out of her way to make sure our meal was fantastic. All of these things make for a pleasant experience at a restaurant but that is not why you go to Lou Malnati's,... More
