“A true classic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

What else needs to be said, this is a true Chicago classic. If you are in the mood to sample true deep dish you really need to look no further.

“Great pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Love the buttery crust. Fast hot delivery. The salads are large and good. Deep dish is their speciality but thin crust is solid too

“Good pizza, take out / delivery only”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

We ordered pizza here while visiting Chicago. This location is take out or delivery only. Order 30 minutes prior to pick up. They have good salads and pizza. I think I have had better pizza though. Everyone working was friendly.

“Best Pizza in Chicago by Far!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2013

The best Chicago style thick crust as well as thin crust pizza around. Our family loves it and we usually get a Malnati's pizza once a week. I have enjoyed getting the thin crust with the lower fat cheese, and it is nice that they offer this option for a lower calorie pizza. We use the take-out Malnati's in Libertyville and they are great for both pick to and delivery. We are not a fan of the eat-in Malnati's restaurant in Buffalo Grove. They don't take reservations and we have waited over and hour for a table on tow occasions on the weekends. Forget that if you have two small children. We stay away from there.
