    My party of 7 went at around 3pm on a Saturday. It was the first time ever I didn't have to wait for 45 minutes for a table! There was already a long line of people waiting when we left at 4:45.

    Best Chicago deep dish pizza. If you're deciding between Lou's or Giordanos, go with Lou's. Try the deep dish with sausage and onion. It's really good.
