This is great pizza my kids love and excellent deep dish. Service is typically good. You can wait a long time on weekends but just get on the list then shop a bit :-). Price is average for Chicago pizza so it is worth it....More

Lou's special pizza with buttercrust and crumbled (not the patty) Italian sausage is my favorite. Lou's appetizer plate containing mushrooms, zuchinni and mozarella sticks also is yummy ( you can choose what you want on it). Also the Malnati salad is great.

The "butter crust" was the best part of the pizza, and was incredible. It was loaded with sausage and pepperoni over a thick layer of cheese. The sauce, which is on top, was good but not the best to be found for Chicago deep dish...More
