Chicagoans like to say that we only eat deep dish on special occasions, but you know what? A visit to Lou Malnati’s is a special occasion in itself. The original Lincolnwood location opened 50 years ago, and Lou’s has since spread the Chicago deep-dish gospel to 57 Illinois spots, plus others in Arizona, Wisconsin, and Indiana. No matter which location you visit, the Chicago Classic is the right order: It’ll come with a flaky, buttery crust, tangy sauce, a layer of pork sausage, and extra mozz; it’s exactly the kind of dish that makes a random Tuesday feel like a party. $20.45/medium; $25.25/large; multiple locations
