“The Best Deep Dish.”
Reviewed 7 July 2012

In the course of a few days we had both Giordano's and Lou's, and Lou's is unquestionably the winner. The crust, the cheese, the sausage are all great. But the killer ingredient that distinguishes Lou's is the tomatoes. The unmistakable taste of sweet, ripe California tomatoes brings the pizza alive. The service and atmosphere were fine as well at the Evanston branch.

“A Chicago Original”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

I've had "Chicago Deepdish" in Canada but it is nothing like the real thing. The buttery crust and gooey cheese were a real treat. I don't know if I would say it's better than any other type of pizza but it was very good and a must try when you're in the Chicago area.
