    A classic deep dish pizza adds to your Chicago experience. Warning, Don’t order too large. One medium was too much for the 2 of us. Hotels don’t have fridges!

    Can't go wrong with Chicago Deep Dish. Just be prepared to wait 30 min as it takes time to make.

    Stay far away!!! We had a friend with a dairy allergy with us, and she was served dairy after CONFIRMATION no dairy was in the dish. On top of that, rude and dismissive staff... Go somewhere else!

    The pizza was mediocre and the service was phenomenally slow.

    There's not much more iconic than Chicago Deep Dish pizza and while everyone has their favorite, for us no one has been doing it better than Lou's. Read more

    Spinach cheesy bread makes a good appetizer but the original sausage deep dish is great
  • Phil W.
    Deep dish pizza that isn't soggy. Pretty darn tasty, though the pizza chips+dip was a gamble that didn't quite pay off.

    A stop when in Chicago - great pizza, but sometimes a long wait. Order when you arrive. When your table is ready, your pizza will be ready also.

    Honestly, I feel bad for anyone who thinks this is good pizza. There's very little flavor. The crust is eh. Don't believe the hype. Even the waiter let it slip, most of his customers are tourists.

    My favorite pizza in Chicago, and maybe anywhere. Get the sausage deep dish. It takes about 30 minutes to prepare but is delicious!

    Great deep dish pizza. If it's your 1st time try the sausage. The spinach pizza is also very good. It is filling and 1 slice is enough for most people.They also deliver frozen pies across the country.

    The "order while you wait" was awesome! Best and biggest calamari I've ever had (we thought they were onion rings!). Love the personal size pizzas!

    Deep dish classic has buttery crust. Thin crust 👍🏼 too. Food takes a while, 30+m. 🍕

    For deep-dish pizza, stop into any of the eight Lou Malnati’s locations in the city or Pequod’s Pizza in Lincoln Park; for a classic Chicago-style hot dog, try Portillo’s downtown. Read more
