Almost five months ago, we broke ground on the site of our newest pizzeria on Chicago’s south side, less than a mile away from Midway Airport. Today, the walls are up, the plans are laid, and we are well on our way to an early May opening!
Lou Malnati’s Midway will be a full-service restaurant and bar, offering dine-in, delivery, carryout, and catering of Chicago’s best deep dish pizza from Lou Malnati’s.
We’re throwin’ it back with this photo…Lou might have been best-known for his delicious deep dish pizza, but he knew how to cook a mean Thanksgiving turkey, too!
At Lou Malnati’s Flossmoor, we have been serving up deep dish pizza for a little over a week since our opening on October 12th, but Marc Malnati was officially welcomed back to the area at a formal ribbon cutting ceremony with Mayor Braun and Chamber of Commerce officials yesterday afternoon.
After the first Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria in Flossmoor closed in 1978, this opening is especially sweet for the Malnati family, because this time, deep dish is here to stay!
If you haven’t stopped by our newest carrout yet, the ribbon has been cut and we are officially open for business! Lou Malnati’s Flossmoor is located at 3315 Vollmer Road in the Flossmoor Commons Centre, offering carryout, delivery (within zone), and catering.
It’s official! Earlier today, Rick Malnati was joined by Mayor Rahm Emanuel for a ground breaking at the site of the next Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria, located near Midway Airport at 6456 South Cicero Avenue!
Illinois Speaker of the House Michael Madigan, Alderman Marty Quinn, President of the Malnati Organization, Mark Agnew, and Director of Facilities, Sasha Milosavljevich were also on hand to celebrate the ground breaking. Malnati shared excitement about joining the growing Midway neighborhood:
“We are thrilled to be able to join the Midway neighborhood. A number of developments are breaking ground along Cicero Avenue, and we’re excited to see the neighborhood change for the better.”
Mayor Emanuel echoed this sentiment, saying, “This new pizzeria is a win for the Midway neighborhood.” After the speeches and ground breaking, the group also enjoyed a “first bite” of Lou Malnati’s deep dish pizza.
Check out a few photos from the day below…
The new pizzeria is located at 3315 Vollmer Road and will offer carryout, delivery (within zone) and catering of Chicago’s best deep dish pizza. Get ready, Flossmoor…Lou Malnati’s is opening in just a few days!

There are lots of things to love about this pizzeria, but in honor of its 5th anniversary, here are 5 things we love about Lou Malnati’s Gold Coast…
