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

Good place, but I've never understood why Chicagoans love Lou Malnati's, to me it's average, but I grew up in Chicago with great pizza. I guess if you've never had better pizza to compare it to? At Lou's, I prefer the deep dish over the thin crust. If people are judging this place by their deep dish, I can see... More

Sorry, but the pasta was not great. Even not for an Italian restaurant in the US. Go and visit Italy to learn more about making good pasta.

After debating whether to go to Giordano's, Gino East, or Lou Malnati's, none of which were close to our hotel, we chose to go to Lou Malnati's, based upon recommendations from friends and TripAdvisor. We had never had authentic Chicago pizza and didn't know what to expect, so we weren't sure what to order, but Heather was very helpful. We... More

The lunch offering at this restaurant is very good, pizza is the best in Chicagoland! Put this restaurant in Schaumburg, IL on your list as a must for lunch or dinner.
