OK, so I had very high hopes for this one. My first ever deep dish pizza was Giordano‘s in Vegas. Many people said you have to go to Chicago and you have to try Lou Malnati‘s. Well, we did, and I just think that it didn’t hit a nerve like the Giordano’s one did. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good pie, it’s just not my preference on deep dish. The pizza is a bit thinner than Giordanos. The sauce could of used a little more flavor. Other than that, it was cooked well and very fresh. Recommend giving a try. 👊🏻

Very authentic with great ingredients! I liked it a lot but generally this style isn’t my cup of tea. But this is a great Chicago deep dish.

I've had all the Chicago Deep Dishes around and personally this is my favorite. Great Corn Crispy Crust, the actually tomato left in the sauce is amazing and the sauce in general is the best I've had. Perfect distribution of Cheese to Sauce. And the perfect amount of char. Love this slice!

Classic deep dish. Sauce is excellent and cheese is very good as well. Could’ve used a bit more sauce and crust is very plain but overall great pizza

I love deep dish. Tried them all in Chicago and Lou’s takes the prize.

Not a deep dish guy but this was really good!!! Crust is the star. It was so buttery and delicious!! Sauce was fresh and cheese was really good. Glad I tried it and would go again.

Crust to die for. Cheese to die for. Sauce to die for. Thin enough to eat like slices. Best deep dish in Chi town

A very good pizza. Stuffed isn’t my favorite, but I wouldn’t turn this down. Probably wouldn’t run to go back either. But if you like this style, worth a visit.

🏆BEST DEEP DISH ALERT🏆 Along with Giordano’s, Lou Malnati’s is the other half of the Big 2 Chicago deep dish mavens. Lou’s is actually the O.G. in the deep dish game, established in 1971 in Lincolnwood, a suburb of Chicago. The major difference separating these two styles: Giordano’s is HEAVY on the cheese, while a Malnati’s pie is SWIMMING in sauce. Using California vine-ripened tomatoes, Lou’s sauce is sweet, tangy and bursting with flavor, a chunkier crushed tomato rather than puréed sauce. They also used sliced fresh mozzarella as opposed to the shredded cheese, which is delectably creamy, melts in your mouth and seems to be a nice compliment to the sauce. The dough is definitely more “dessert pie-like,” flaky, buttery, golden brown with a crispy & crunchy crust around the edges. This is also a noticeably thinner pie than the over-stuffed Giordano’s version. With a sprinkle of Parmesan on top, this is a feast of flavor and edges out Giordano’s as the best deep dish pizza in Chicago. While I still prefer a thin & foldable NYC slice, Lou Malnati’s is a welcomed change of pace pie and well worth a trip to Chi-town.

Didn’t have any crisp, but sauce is good. The wait it crazy long to eat here

I enjoyed it but the husband didn’t. The thin crust is just a thinner deep dish like crust. The crust was light,very flaky and very buttery wasn’t what we excepted at all ... good hot not so good cold.
