This pizza is the ***BEST*** deep dish I've ever had! If you decide to take it home, don't have them cut it for you. It tastes better when you cut it at home. Enjoy!!!

This place has the best pizza in town but it should really allow making reservations as i had to wait for 40 mins to get the yummy meal. Although this is not a meal that you would have often unless you want to gain 100...More

We had a deep cheese, pepperoni, extra cheese with a butter crust and it was fantastic. Tried the cheddar cubes for the first time. I was a little apprehensive, but they were really good. They're served with marinara sauce.

Fortunately the Buffalo Grove location is very close to us. The staff from the front to the waitresses/waiters to busboys are always friendly no matter how busy they are. and the pizza is always excellent.

We got together with family from out of town who had not had Lou Malnatis ever. Their spinach and tomato pizza is really tasty. Great drinks too! I gave only very good rating only because we had a server who really seemed to be bothered...More

I love this pizza, it is my personal favorite. Their family size salad rocks and is priced great for the huge bowl that feeds at least 6 heaping proportions. Sometimes the staff takes awhile as they are very busy during prime times. I suggest calling...More

I come to this restaurant every time I am in the area. Friday and Saturdays have a very long wait, but it is worth it. I think this is the best pizza in Chicago. Love the butter crust. Great service.
