Tried a couple of restaurants for the deep dish pizza and this place have my vote for number 1. On top of the great food (also excellent minestrone soup) the service was awesome.

Absolutely delicious! Got “The Malnati” pizza and loved it. Just the right amount of cheese, sauce, and meat. The buttery crust was the finishing touch. Excellent service too. Just be prepared to wait because it takes a good 30 - 40 minutes to get your...More

Giordano's is stuffed pizza (toppings are stuffed into the pie) and Lou's is deep dish (toppings are on top of the pie) Giordanos is dense Lou's although hearty is not as dense. Matter of personal taste, both are great!
