    It is literally always insane here. The good is very good (great?). But the wait to sit and the wait to get the deep dish makes it a tough sell unless it's your first time or a yearly visit.

    Classic Chicago-style deep dish available in a renovated old fire station. Pizza can take awhile, but there is an arcade room that can keep kids entertained while you wait. Bring your quarters.

    One of the best pizza place. For guys, try deep dish, sausage, garlic, and giardiniera.

    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.
