We have less than three weeks until Lou Malnati's opens in Rockford and we are SO ready... apparently so are they.

One of the biggest food moments from last summer was the announcement that Lou Malnati's is coming to Rockford.

Then we had the holidays and to be honest, I kind of forgot that despite the terrible, awful, no good weather we're facing here in the Stateline, Lou Malnati's is still on their way!

February 11, Lou's will open at 6240 Mulford Village in Rockford. There won't be any seating in the restaurant, instead it will be a carryout and delivery only location.

Which honestly is fine. Lou's is delicious but it's kind of exhausting to eat and you always have leftovers so you might as well just be home eating it.

Catering will also be available at the store AND according to Eyewitness News, the store will open with heart shaped pizzas just in time for Valentine's Day.

Side note, I find it amazing and hilarious that Lou's will be steps away from Portillo's. Let's just start calling that area 'mini Chicago.'

While we count down the days, I will be dreaming of my favorite pizza from Lou's, 'The Lou.' If you love garlic and tomatoes, you must try it!
