Wow! This dip dish pizza was one of the best by far. Done just right, not too much or raw. The simple ingredients did justice. The service was courteous, pleasant ant prompt. The iside decor is set to welcome anyone! Just wish they would open in California!

First time we tried to get in was prime time Friday evening, people were waiting, outside, in a cold rain. That told me people are willing to wait in a cold rain for this place, good sign, but I don't wait in a cold rain for anything. So we went back earlier the next night and got right in (barely,...

Tonight we ate at Malnati's pizza in elk Grove Village and had the best sausage deep dish pizza that there is. Growing up in Chicago and now living in Florida I miss deep dish pizza whenever I come back here I always get a deep dish at Malnati's

This pizzeria has been in this community "forever" because it IS that good. Can be noisy and crowded but you'll never go wrong when you have a taste for deep dish. My husband and I usually have to have our "fix" every month and I will also send a frozen pizza to family out of state, they do that too.... More

What tradition we have at Lou's! Yes, we are on a first name basis. Get out your yoga pants or sweats...yes, you do need something that stretches with you waist!

I'm not a fan of deep dish pizza, but I have to say this was the best I've ever had. Very easy to get to, plenty of parking, great service. We'll be back.

This was my first trip out to Chicago and I was honestly most excited about the deep dish pizza. Lou Malnati's did not disappoint!! Amazing pizza with friendly staff! Though there was a consistent line out the door, I would absolutely go back! Worth it!

I first tired Lou Malnati's Pizza at this location in 1976 and was Hooked! The Deep Dish Butter Crust is the best pizza I have had in CO, IL, MN, NC, & WI. The Thin Crust is great too by the way.

Authentic Chicago style pizza. I was visiting from Miami so it's uncommon to find any type of Chicago style pizza. Only immitations. I was full for the whole day.
