    Love Lou's. IMO Burt's pizza is lightyears ahead. RIP Burt Katz.

    Chicagoan here with Italian relatives. We are not too sure about this. I have only had Malnati's thin crust and it was terrible. Maybe the deep dish is good and I'll have to try it soon. I've always preferred Giordano's, it is so good!

  6. Phobe Romys says

    That's not pizza

  7. Simone Taddia says

    172 Neapolitan pizza makers and their grandmothers are crying. No wonder USA has an obesity epidemic.

    Gotta go to the Original in Lincolnwood. Thank me later.

  9. Heaven IsHere7 says

    Even the frozen style they ship out was some of the best pizza I've ever had. Really good crispy crust all the way around but still somehow has that deep dish consistency where it meets the fresh and high quality mozzarella. The sauce is plentiful and flavorful, not too complex and simple enough to meet all flavor palates. Robust freshly ripened roma tomatoes would be my guess with a moderate reduction profile. I can't quite remember the exact flavor profile but my mouth is watering reminiscing the pizza. The pepperoni version was great too, and not overly greasy. I can't imagine how good a fresh pizza is.

    It isnt even that deep-

  11. A jay Rogus says

    Genos east is better

  12. Blue Notez says

    Lou Malnati's for my mind, soul and my body

  13. nayChanelツ says

    This is the best way I’ve seen to promote health and fitness lol

  14. Dave Ruckert says

    I worked out a poor man's version of this using a deep dish pie crust in the recipe. Not quite the same, but actually pretty darn good.

  15. Vibrant Delights Lifestyle says

    We’ve only eaten out once since February and our choice early May was Lou Malnati’s…Carol Stream location! I grew up eating UNO’s but I love my Lou’s. ???

  16. Timothy Landry says

    Giordano’s hands down

  17. 70Slinger says

    I live in the South U.S.A never had a New York slice or a Chicago deep dish. Maybe I'm just hungry but both of them look great to me now.

  18. Kelly Pedersen says

    It's so sad driving past the original Lou Malnati's in Lincolnwood these days and not seeing it packed to the rafters on the weekend (but again, this is all for the best . . . for now at least: I'm glad they're still doing curbside).

    sorry, can't compare to dominos

  22. Xenon 4300 says

    Luckily I moved to Phoenix where Lou’s has capitalized on the Chicago roots of this town and I couldn’t feel more at home because of that.

  23. audilicous says

    It’s not real pizza. STOP CALLING IT PIZZA.

  24. McMoofly says

    I don't care what a crap night I've had but when the crew and I head down to Lu's it just makes everything right. It's pretty much just Chicago's best comfort food.

  25. isaiah jordan says

    Lou Malnatis deep dish is butt cheeks compared to Giordanos… I feel bad for all the tourists that eat that thinking it’s the best in Chicago

  26. Pedro San Roman says

    Palmeros

  27. Chris M says

    Whose gotta clean Malnati’s restrooms?

  28. Ben S says

    Anyway to reduce packaging ?

    el prezzzzzz

  30. crazylova91 says

    Don't care for a pizza place that offers no ground beef or chicken or any non-pork options for people who don't eat pork! Dunno what they were thinking of when they came up with the menu.

  31. Life Diaries By KD says

    Very impressive ??

  32. A T says

    For health reasons, I'm on a no fat raw vegan low histamine diet lately.. and if I can ever eat regular food again.. I'm trying one of these.
