Listening to your favorite bands at Lollapalooza while eating a fresh, hot slice of Lou Malnati’s deep dish pizza!
If you’re headed to Lolla this weekend, make this dream a reality by stopping by the Lou Malnati’s booth in Chow Town North to refuel between shows.
At just $4 for a slice of cheese, cheese & sausage, or cheese & pepperoni deep dish pizza, you won’t find a more delicious, filling meal for less anywhere in Chow Town!
Our pizzas are cooked fresh on site (yes, we’re bringin’ out the ovens, just like we do every year!) which guarantees you’ll get a hot, cheesy slice every time.
The annual 5-day festival featuring some of Chicago’s best tastes runs through the weekend, ending on Sunday, July 9th.
Lou Malnati’s has been participating in the Taste of Chicago since, well, forever! And just like we were doin’ it at the first festival in 1980, now in 2017, we continue to cook our pizzas fresh on site. Because there’s no better taste than that first bite of fresh, hot, and unbelievably cheesy deep dish pizza!
This year at Booth #23, we are offering our Malnati Salad, slices of deep dish cheese pizza, cheese & sausage pizza, and cheese & pepperoni pizza, along with taste portions of our Malnati Salad and Bruschetta. Come on down and enjoy a slice of deep dish pizza, hot out of the oven!
See you there! Don’t forget to tag your cheesiest social media posts and pics from the Taste of Chicago with #TasteOfLous or #LouMalnatis and we just might feature you on our page!
We’re bringin’ back our tower of pizza boxes, filled with prizes, for an afternoon of deep dish inspired fun with Mason, Remy, and Alabama from Chicago’s Big 95.5!
Stop by Lou Malnati’s Gold Coast between 12-2pm tomorrow, Wednesday, April 5th for FREE slices of our famous deep dish pizza, prizes (Lou Malnati’s swag, anyone?) and fun with Mason, Remy, and Alabama from Chicago’s Big 95.5!
Get even more excited for tomorrow by checking out a recap of last year’s National Deep Dish Pizza Day celebration below!
If you’re headed downtown this weekend for the festivities, here’s a rundown of what to expect, and of course, where you can find your Lou Malnati’s pizza fix:
Saturday, March 11th will kick off with the River Dyeing at 9am.
The best views can be found between Michigan Ave and Columbus Drive, but plan to get there early for the best spot! After you’re seeing green (in the river, that is) head to Lou Malnati’s River North for lunch. Located at 439 North Wells, it’s just about a mile away from the action.
The party continues with the Chicago St. Patrick’s Day Parade, scheduled to start at 12pm.
The route starts at Balbo Ave and Columbus Drive, and will continue north to Monroe Street. The party doesn’t have to end with the parade, though! Lou Malnati’s South Loop is located just a few blocks from the route at 805 South State Street – a short walk when you know you’re close to eating deep dish pizza!
Ok, that’s a tough one…spoiler alert: it was Lombardi’s, which opened in 1905.
You’ll find pizza history like this and much, much more at the “I Love Pizza Exhibit,” now on display at the Niles Public Library!
The exhibit, created by Kendall Bruns, founder of the U.S. Pizza Museum, gives pizza lovers a slice of the history behind their favorite food and features memorabilia, old menus, photos, and more. Let’s not forget, the history of pizza would not be complete without Lou Malnati’s! You’ll find some old school Lou’s memorabilia at the exhibit, too.
The “I Love Pizza Exhibit” is running now through March 31st at the Niles Public Library. Go check it out!
Head to the original Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria in Lincolnwood (just a few miles away from the library) to check out even more pizza history and get a taste of Chicago’s best deep dish pizza!
Tickets are hard to come by this late in the game, but fans that make the trip to the convention will enjoy meet and greets with current and former Cubs players, pics with the World Series trophy (how cool is that?), panel discussions, and more!
The three-day event is at the Sheraton Grand Chicago, and guess what? The hotel is conveniently located near multiple downtown Lou Malnati’s locations!
If you’re not staying at the Sheraton, check out all of our locations to see which Lou’s is closest to you! View Locations ›
Take a look at our photo of Lou Malnati and Mr. Cub himself, Ernie Banks! Those were the good old days…
