Great Chicago Pizza and other goodies?

I will be in Chicago with my dad in July, and will be staying near the John Hancock Center. Last time I was here was a long time back, and I admit I wasn't paying attention to where I was eating then either. I love Chicago pizza, and would like to take him to one good spot in between baseball games. Any tips on good local palces to eat would be appreciated as well. We're from Louisiana, so different and/or spicy is always welcome as well.
Thanks in advance,

  1. I've lived here for about a year now, and Lou Malnati's is still my favorite for Chicago-style pizza. I always get the butter crust - it's fantastic and stays crisp rather than getting soggy like a lot of stuffed pizza crusts tend to do.
