We absolutely love Louie’s. We visit at least twice a month and carry out too! The best chicken around. Other favorites are the walleye or perch, ribs, ground sirloin, Billy’s walnut salad and of course pizza!

I have been here many times for lunch. The place has that neat old Chicago look and feel to it. They have daily specials plus great Italian entrees and soups. They bring you the best toasted bread appetizer.
