Lou Malnati's PhoenixThe opening of our Phoenix pizzeria is…TODAY at 4pm!

For all of our new friends in Phoenix, we have a few tips for how to make the most out of your first trip to Lou Malnati’s in the Valley!



1.) We are not taking reservations, and will be serving customers on a first come, first served basis. We are anticipating a very warm welcome, which means a busy first few weeks! Please plan accordingly for longer than average wait times, but keep in mind, this pizza is well worth the wait!

2.) Our hours are: Sunday – Thursday, 4pm – 11pm, Friday & Saturday, 4pm – Midnight… We know what you’re thinking, but don’t worry! We’ll be opening for lunch soon.

3.) We are offering dine-in, carryout, and delivery (within zone). Online ordering is also available for carryout and delivery orders! Don’t want to make the trip to the pizzeria quite yet? Have Lou’s delivered! Find out if you’re in our delivery zone by searching for your address on our map.

5.) This is the most important thing you will read today… there are a lot of delicious items on our menu, but you gotta try the deep dish pizza. And get the Buttercrust. Always get the Buttercrust.

6.) Eating deep dish pizza is an experience. Every bite should be savored, so use a fork & knife! And for goodness sake, never fold a slice of Lou Malnati’s deep dish pizza. This isn’t New York, after all.
