This restaurant is a landmark and serves an excellent omelette and fried potatoes. There is no way to get a bad meal here; everything on the menu is super. This is a greasy spoon in the very best possible sense. Enjoy!

The location makes the dining room a bit more spacious but Louie's continues to be a part of the culture of being a student or alumni of LSU. The food has been classic south Louisiana diner fare as far back as I can remember. Great...More

We visited a Sunday morning after a football game. About a 15 minute wait but worth it! Parking on the street. Great breakfast food. Great prices! Crowded because they are moving people through fast. Staff works hard! Recommended the crawfish omelet or country fried steak....More

Louie's is a great place for breakfast lovers! They serve other food items besides breakfast and are open 24hrs. Louie's is very busy on game days so be prepared for a long wait! The pancakes and omelettes are to awesome!

Looking for weekend breakfast? Don't stand in line at those chain places - hop over to Louie's! Portions are large (don't over-order) and tasty. Service is fast but not rushed. A great find.

A great 24 hour diner. Was not too far off the highway on a road trip back to Texas. Hash browns with cheese and whatever else you want on them are the winners on their mebu.

Big portions, standard cafe, appreciate the upgrade to the decor and the food is middle of the road. Nothing horrible, nothing outstanding. I am sure if I was a college student I would frequent, their late night eats would be great.
