“Best Burger in Omaha Area”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

I had attempted to go here a couple of years ago after hearing great things about it. I was surprised to find it closed on a Friday around 6PM. They are now open Friday and Saturday evenings. I have had local burgers, but Louie M's is the BEST around. Great onion rings too. Friendly server as well. Definitely give this place a try. You will be glad you did!!

“don't miss this place for breakfast!”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

i lived in omaha for years, and although i moved away over eight years ago, i always come for breakfast here when in town. the same waitress are still serving food - they are no nonsense efficient gals. it is the type of place full of regulars and locals, and the waitresses always remember who you are.

dont let the name fool you - although their burgers are good, breakfast is where it is at. the hashbrowns are out of this world - i compare hashbrowns all over the world to the one's i receive at louie m's. the breakfast fare is standard, but the generous portions are always delivered piping hot. i love the eggs benedict on the weekend - and during the week i just have sausage eggs and hashbrowns with orsi toast (orsi toast is an omaha thing - get it - basically italian bread).

your glass will never be empty - coffee and water refills are constant. there may be a wait, but you never wait too long and food is always served quickly. the waitresses may be a little sassy, but that is part of their charm (and i would say they are only sassy to the ones they like).

this isnt a fancy breakfast joint - it is your typical run of the mill diner. but it is not too be missed when you are in omaha! trust me - it is worth the jaunt to .

“Great for Breakfast”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

Went to Louie's recently for breakfast and had the French Toast with fresh slice strawberries. The portion was large and you didn't even need syrup because the batter they use is sweet and they also top them with powdered sugar. The fresh strawberries were the best though. Prices are reasonable and service is adequate. It is located in an old business district south of downtown.

“A fun place to eat!”
Reviewed 4 January 2013

I love coming here for breakfast. The staff is friendly and know people by name. I just wish they had it bit more seating-- it can get a little crowded.

“Good food, some unusual menu items, and fun to eat there!”
Reviewed 10 October 2012

The food at Louie M's covers quite a wide span from basic American breakfast items to some great authentic Mexican items, including menudo. Service is efficient and friendly; the atmosphere is South Omaha bar, which is a good thing for me! Customers always seem relaxed and to be enjoying themselves, the atmosphere and the food. Great onion rings; the fries are always fresh and not; the burgers...well, they don't call it 'burger lust' for nothing.
