view web site ›'s insider take:

While eating deep-dish, Chicago-style pizza with a fork is an equally novel experience at Gino's East and Giordanos, Chicago's two other famous pizza places, what sets Lou Malnati's apart is the spicy-sweet sauce and sausage. According to local lore, Grandpa Malnati started making pies here in the 1940s, and his family has been guarding his top-secret crust and sausage recipes ever since. It's served the family well: You'll now find more than 24 Lou Malnati's in Chicagoland. Still, there's no need to hop a cab; this centrally located, casual joint, with its red-and-white checkered tablecloths and posters of Ryne Sandberg, is as Chicago as it gets.

Open Mondays through Thursdays 11am to 11pm, Fridays and Saturdays 11am to midnight, Sundays noon to 10 pm.
