Chicago-style deep dish pizza – thick crust, chunky tomato sauce, lots of cheese. Chicago local favorite Lou Malnatis’ opens their first location outside of the Chicago area in Phoenix Monday, May 16th. The new location is located at 100 E Camelback Road in the Uptown Plaza also home to recently opened Shake Shack.
This week I had the opportunity to experience Lou Malnatis’ during its soft opening while supporting Chrysalis.
I loved the funky decor and there’s a huge outdoor patio. I was also impressed by the huge bar and a menu with a good variety of beer, wine and cocktails. I ordered the Valley Negroni
Besides a few Personal-sized Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizzas, we ordered the Barb-B-Lou Chicken Wings with Honey BBQ Sauce which were delicious, perfectly sweet and tender.
