We researched the best traditional deep pan pizzas in Chicago and we decided on Lou Malnatis. It did not disappoint! Very impressed with the deep pan sausage pizza, we only got a small one to share between two and it was plenty!

This place has the iconic Chicago deep dish pizza. Service was fast and efficient, and the pizza was pretty good too.

Great pizzas, good service and reasonably priced. The calamari starter was excellent but the mixed starter mostly consisted of deep fried “plastic” cheese sticks which were left behind. Otherwise great place for a quick bite to eat.

A person just can't go to Chicago and not have Deep Dish pizza. Lou Malnati's was recommended to me by a few people and it didn't disappoint. Prices were moderate, service was good, and well, the pizza has no words. Best pizza I've ever had....More

While in Chicago, we made the obligatory trip for deep dish at Lou Malnati's (based on recommendations). The pizza was tasty and filling. We also had a really, very good salad. I believe Lou Malnati's pizza is the real deal. I'm not a super big...More

If your in Chi Town and don't stop at one of Lou's places then it's your loss. We have been there to eat 3 times and twice ordered there frozen shipped in pizza deals. Very good stuff. The salads and sandwiches are equally as good.

We came by bus to see Hamilton, and decided we would walk the .8 miles to experience “the best Chicago deep dish pizza..” We were very satisfied with our choice of the classic deep dish!

Yes, our pizza sauce contains chunks of tomatoes. If you do not want chunks of tomato, you can always request your pizza be made with our thin crust sauce (same sauce, just pureed a bit more so there are fewer chunks).
