Vienna Beef and Pizza Combo
Was very good - but I think I will go back to our old favorite of Portillo's beef with my next order. Pizza awesome as usual!

The crust on our sausage pizzas baked up crisp and delicious. Awesome dinner and solid value.
I catered a lunch for our office with Lou Malnati's pizzas and Italian Beef Sandwiches. Everyone raved about the pizzas, but being a Chicago native, I thought that they were not up to Lou's excellent standards. Don't get me wrong, they were still good and I enjoyed them, but I've had better from Luo's. The beef sandwiches were flat-out excellent!

You can't get Italian Beefs & Pizza 'Daown Saouth'!
This was a birthday gift to a dear friend who grew up in Chicago & now lives in Alabama. She was THRILLED with the Chicago goodies -- I wrote her that I was glad they liked it, and she said: "We don't like it. We LOVE it!" I'm planning on another surprise, but maybe adding Vienna hot dogs next time. They ate Chicago memories and delicious treats four days in a row! Thank you. I will definitely be back. Great, great gift!
Mom loved it lives in northern Wisconsin and nothing like it there!
Taste of Chicago
Pizza and real Italian Roast Beef. I have missed what is true deep dish pizza and felt I needed to order once again from the famed Lou Malnatti's. Once I ordered, I waited the two painstaking days for delivery (makes 45 minutes in the restaurant seem like nothing!). Once it arrived, I took the next day off to thoroughly enjoy my anticipated pizza. As always, I was not disappointed. Thank you Lou Malnatti's for delivering a great pizza and a Taste of Chicago, the city I love the most.
Awesome Customer Service
This review is not for the actual product. Due to weather conditions, my package arrived 7 days later. Needless to say it had to be thrown away. I called Malnati's and they sent out a new order. No problem. No hassle. Just a wonderful, courteous person on the other end of the phone. I'm sending all of my friends and family Malnati's pizza from now on!
Pizza - hmmmmmmm
The pizzas did not taste very good. The crust tasted very old. Have to say this will make it hard to order again.
Vienna Italian Beef
Good texture and flavor of the beef, but a bit too much herbs for my taste; I also would have preferred a bit more fat in the au jus - but still a very good sandwich. The giardiniera was good and the rolls were excellent.
Yummy - made us homesick ! Best birthday gift by far!
Christmas 2013 Gift Pack
The pizzas and the Vienna Beef were both easy to make and tasted good.
This Kit Is A Great Value
Now, many will think this kit is a bit on the pricey side, however, my wife and I recently spent an extended weekend in Vegas. I shipped in 2 Lou's Pizzas (spinach) and a Vienna Italian Beef kit. We stayed at the Vdara and got a suite which included a full kitchen with an oven. We arrived on a Friday, and the food was there waiting for us. We were able to eat the entire weekend on the pizzas and the beef. In fact, after an Uber ride to Wal Mart for eggs, we had beef filled omlettes each morning. We only ate out once, so the kit saved us a bundle. Plus did I mention Vegas?!?
The Best of Chicago's Go To Food either for Comfort or after a night out on the town, order this!
WOW!!!! I ordered the Italian Beef with two Lou's pizzas (1- Sausage & the other Spinach), and they knocked the socks off my San Diego friends! It was hilarious to see and snap pics of their reactions to Chicago's deliciousness! I had to yell at them and crutch over with a broken heel to "Save that Au Jus" for me or else! They were talking about how they were going to snag the rest of "my" beef with all the Au Jus left, and that didn't happen! I happily ate it over 2020 Memorial Day Weekend, and then melancholy set it...until I remembered that I still had a Lou's Spinach in the deep freezer! I'm still laughing at their greediness! Proves up that Chitown is the best when it comes to food. Case closed. San Diego's food is meh, mezza mezza at best! We'll be ordering again soon! Thanks so much Tastes of Chicago for the perfect food, perfect shipping, and it was on time sans one problem at all. The food was frozen cold as it should be and fantastic tasting as it should be! As a 5th Generationer from LP, Many thanks!
