The title of the review says it all. Ate there the other night, had the Lou's and it was like a giant grease pie.

This is my absolute favor pizza in the entire world! My favorite pizza is thin crust sausage. The crust is crispy with not too much tomatoe sauce and loaded with sausage. It's delicious.

Great take out. Just beware that this is so thin and crispy that you can easily eat the entire pizza and suffer from self loathing the rest of the day. Order it thin and extra crispy!

When in I Chicago you've got to try the deep dish pie, it's a must. Ordered from Lou's, the sausage pies with butter crust. Man that's a lot of pie. We ate it for 3 days. I prefer NY pie , but you got to try deep dish and Lou's is the place to do it !

The best pizza in Chicago period. Best cheese, sauce, meats and crust. Love their thick butter crust option 😋

Totally biased. A Lou's is my favorite pizza ever. This business is very friendly and their food quality is consistent. I only wish it was a sit down restaurant, but they run a very efficient takeout business.

Lou's pizza has been a family favorite for many years. Both the deep dish and thin crust are outstanding.

Our favorite pizza, the gold standard - exceeds all others worldwide for deep dish pizza. We live the cheese. Our sons the sausage. The sausage practically covers the whole pizza. Our brother-in- law loves their salad. Our son in laws favorite is the thin crust with lots of veggies or the spinach deep dish.

Thank AdventurerJudy
