Deep dish was delicious. For appetizers we ordered the pizza tostada that included three different types of dips. I wasn't happy with the dips. They looked mushy I've tried better dips. The pizza made up for it so then I got happy. lol. Service was excellent. The atmosphere was also excellent. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Delicious but not the best! Giordano's makes a better Deep-dish pizza but Lou gives you more. Papa John's makes a better chocolate chip cookie pizza and it's cheaper... But no ice cream. Recommended!

It is just okay. Nothing great. Bunch of young kids and temporary workers are mixing, reheating and baking central franchise formulas. Nothing unusual here. Still decent.

The deep dish is delicious. The crust is light, buttery, and flakey! The appetizer I had order was the trio dip and pizza chips. The chips were good, but the dips were not good at all! They were hard and cold! Plus they don't have fries :( but the pizza it self was delicious.

My sister and I always eat here when we get a chance. Lou Mal's is our special place and we always eat the same thing. The Lou pizza is our favorite and that's all we get. If you're looking for a solid deep dish pizza in the Chicago area, you have to go here. Of course, it's packed with Northwestern students and family on the nights and weekends... so be prepared to wait. It's worth it!

If you are in the mood for some delicious buttery crust Chicago pizza, this is your place! While I've only gotten carry-out, Lou's pies don't disappoint, my favorite being the vegetarian "Lou" pie. As with all Chicago style pizzas, it takes about 45 minutes to properly bake.
