We checked this place out given the high ranking for Evanston restaurants. We had the house salad (big enough to split for two or three people) and a large thin crust cheese pizza. They made the food real time, so expect a 20-30 minute wait....More

The location is excellent - just off the Northwestern University campus. The deep dish pizza we ordered was not as thick as I prefer for deep dish, but that means you can actually eat more than one piece. The service seems a bit slow, but...More

LM's is our favorite Chicago pizza joint. The butter crust is phenomenal. Salads also very well crafted with great ingredient combinations for flavor and "texture". The classic deep dish is our favorite. My son ordered a chicken alfredo pasta dish that he liked. Evanston location...More

After our Northwestern college tour, our guide suggested this restaurant for a late lunch. We enjoyed a family salad and two pizza with leftovers to take home. Excellent, knowledgeable waiter. Thanks for a memorable Chicago deep dish experience.

Our first time trying deep dish pizza and it was better than we expected. Great house salad and focaccia. The pizza has a crusty bottom and is less bready than expected. Really tastes great.
