Known for one of the best Chicago deep dish pizzas, this is take out only. They do have a thin crust too, but deep dish is the reason they exist. Some salads and sodas are also available. Other branches have sit-down eat in.

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 !

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.
