  • The Malnati Chicago Classic combines a signature buttercrust with their awesome well-seasoned homemade sausage. It's one of the best deep dish pizzas known to man.
  • They claim a "small" pizza will feed two people, but they don't mention that it will never fill the new void in your life caused by not having this pizza. Get a large, bring some home. Trust me.
  • Don't screw around-get The Lou with the butter crust
  • People from California don't know anything about deep dish pizza
  • If you think Pizza Hut is the best deep dish you've had, head to Lou's an get the classic. Loved that the sausage was just above the crust and under the perfectly oozing cheese and fresh tomato sauce.
  • If your from a city where deep-dish is non-existent. They have a slamming thin crust that will make your mouth water. Dont forget to get a drink on the side!
  • Great food, terrible service.
  • One of the best places in the city to get Deep Dish Pizza. While you're there, try the spinach bread. It's to die for!
  • Great place for Deep dish. Pre-order if you are going to eat in. Get the butter crust.
  • Pre-order while you wait for your table. Pizza takes an additional 15 minutes to arrive once you sit down.
  • , !!! !!!
  • Best pizza in Chicago. Must have the butter crust !
  • You can ship a pizza anywhere in the USA!
  • The Lou...always!
  • Awesome deep dish - had the original. Great crust and ingredients. Better than Giordano's in my opinion.
  • ,
  • Pre-Order unless you don't mind the wait.
  • Honestly, I was very disappointed! I ordered the 6" Chicago Classic, it was okay, nothing special. None of the elements really had any great flavor, just bland ingredients. I had such high hopes!
  • Prepare to wait to get seated, while this place is always crowded. But it's worth the wait! Their deep dish pizza's are goood, try The Lou!
