    Close to South Loop hotels, service was good and fast. If ordering deep dish, order it first as it takes a while to cook, server will come back to take your drink/appetizer order.

    First meal in Chicago, and it surely did not disappoint. The classic Chicago with buttercrust had sizable pork and tomato bits that made it so enjoyable to eat.

    I'm sorry Chicago but I'm just not down with your style of pizza. Lou Malnatis bruschetta was good, pizza not really and none of the beers on the menu were available.

    The gluten free thin crust Lou is a great choice for anyone who's looking for a go-to gluten free + veggie friendly pizza

    Chicago pizza!!! It was the first time I tried one and we've got a great one. Ask for a classic one and you won't regret it.

    Mozzarella sticks could use a little more time being heated. The cheese inside wasn't gooey the way I expected them to be. Nonetheless they were yummy still

    they can make your pizza vegan--just ask for no cheese as their dough contains no dairy

    Deep dish pizza is good. However service is very slow. Manager here is not as accommodating with food allergies and special requests as the other locations.

    Terrific deep dish pizza. The crust is fantastic. Polish it off with a pizza baked chocolate chip cookie.

    The Lou thin crust is the best. I usually order pick-up instead of eating in when it's busy in the evenings/weekends. Call at least an hour before you want to eat for pick up.

    Loud, inefficient, and just not as good as any Giordano's
  • Jon S.

    Pizza is outstanding. Chicago classic with butter crust is a must. I still feel that Giordano's is better because it's a stuffed deep dish.

    A new favorite. The Malnati Salad honestly one of the best I have ever eaten...ever. The Chicago land pizza was satisfying and a delightfully satisfying "authentic" experience.

    Awesome deep dish - had the original. Great crust and ingredients. Better than Giordano's in my opinion.

    Their desert is on point. I know it sounds weird but order the chicken nuggets and fries, they have great curly fries.

    Order ahead of time and they'll get the pizza started for you. You'll still have to wait a bit when you're seated.
