Take-out or Delivery. Lou Malnatti's is in the Top 5 Deep Dish Pizzerias in Chicagoland. Always busy. Call ahead to order.

Great variety of good pizza. Deep dish is their specialty. Usually busy, so order ahead. On-line ordereing is reliable. Prices are high.

This is simply the best pizza around! Simple yet delicious! I am never disappointed in what I get. My favorite is the plain cheese but a very close second is the Lou. My kids love the three cheese bread.

Chicagoans don't realize how good they have it with deep dish pizza from Lou Malnatti's! Every time I eat Malnatti's deep dish it's like winning the pizza lottery! Sausage patty, butter crust, delicious! The Palatine location makes consistently great deep dish pizzas! Pricey, but worth it!

My wife and I moved to Palatine 14 years ago, and Lou Malnati's is our number 1 go to for Pizza. The pizza is consistently delicious. Our preference is the deep dish pizza, but thin crust is good too. We like to start with the house salad with the lemon garlic dressing.

We set out to go to the location in Schaumburg but mistakenly ended up at the take out only location. Enjoyed the deep dish, not something that is common where we live. Crust was thick enough that you could pick up the piece instead of using utensils (actually plastic utensils aren't really up to the task of cutting through the... More

This location is for take out only. Consistently good. Stay away from the sausage unless you want a sausage hamburger over your entire pizza. Lou's is very good Chicago Deep Dish.

Standard deep dish pizza Chicago is known for - you can't go wrong if that's what you want to try. Unique to the local area.

Once I give the good people at Lou's they ask me if I want my large cheese deep dish, well done, uncut pizza and I say yes. They give my total and tell me when to pick it up and I do. I then rush home and we eat the best deep dish pizza in Chiago. I have lived here... More
