Back again

Really nice atmosphere, friendly, comfortable, good food, here last year, came back again as such a friendly place, plus a nice change from the strip.

Great place to get breakfast off the strip. Read good reviews and they were correct. We were both happy with our choice. Meals are large and delicious. Try the Country Combo! All food was flavorful and filling. Staff was kind, friendly and helpful. They make you feel so welcome.

Lou's Diner has been serving Las Vegans for years...They started up in 1972...It is open for breakfast and lunch only...Usually quite busy but they have a really good staff of three or more waitresses working to keep the food coming...It is standard diner fare...Good sized breakfast menu and lots of old standbys for lunch...Meatloaf, Hot beef and turkey sandwiches, burgers,...

I gave Lou's Diner an "average" rating because there isn't a rating between "average" and "very good." This is a solid, good, ole' diner that is off The Strip--a place where locals hang out. We were staying at Bally's and wanted something besides the buffet and found Lou's with a Google search. It took us about 20-25 minutes to drive... More

This is a local's place, off the beaten track but well worth finding..Small but well worth the effort to wait for a place to set. Food is excellent, waitstaff are friendly an always moving. Great small diner atmosphere.

Have gone there twice in the past week and had outstanding meals each time. This really is a local's place, located off the Strip at 43l S. Decatur. Lots of old timey memorabilia on the walls and all over the place. First time we had SOS on toast. Large servings. Second time we took another couple with us for breakfast.... More
