Went to Louie's with wife to try pizza on a Sunday afternoon.. We arrived a touch before opening (5:30) and parking was already a problem - there simply isn't near enough.

Was recommended this joint to get some good thin crust pizza. We drove by it twice not sure if we were giving wrong directions. We went in and checked it out...and thankfully! Pizza was great and the restaurant is a very unique joint that you will enjoy. It's worth going out of your way to check it out.

As a true connoisseur of Upper-Midwest thin crust pizza, we were looking forward to finally trying Louie’s pizza! We had ready about it for a couple years and just never seemed to make it down to Henderson to give it a try. With great anticipation, we finally meandered on down to give it a shot! The place itself seems like... More

By any stretch, Louie's has the best bar food of any place in town. There are always two homemade soups available, plus wonderful Greek salad or Caesar salad. Of course, the pizza is the star, with numerous choices for toppings. Thin crust, just the way I like it, and cooked perfectly. Oh, and yes, fabulous martinis!

Found this restaurant from Diners, Drive Ins and Dives on Food Network. We drove up and since we had a 6 year old were not to sure about it. However, we went on in and enjoyed one of the best pizza's ever. My daughter and I got the gluten free crust vegetable pizza ( I don't really care for pizza... More

Here's my recipe for perfection: Best thin-crusted pizza on the planet. Stiff pour from friendly, erudite bartenders. A neighborhood crowd from a very large neighborhood - all warm, all willing to converse. And finally, Chris (Junior Canelakes) who hasn't missed a beat taking over for his late and truly great brother and the joint's namesake, Lou. He is the genius... More

I have heard a lot of reviews and comments about Louie's over the years. One reviews said that Louis died and the place is closed. Louis died in November 2013 but the place is open and kicking. Even though he died in November the place is alive and vibrant. I highly recommend Louis's. The food, anything you order, is great.

Cannot get enough of this place. Start with the crab claws and follow up with the amazing pizza. Definitely recommend getting the house made sausage on there!

I usually don't write reviews on trip advisor for my hometown restaurants, but felt the need when I saw the low ranking for Louie's. Yes, the wait can be long sometimes, both to get a table and to get food. Yes, some, but not all of the waitresses can be aloof at times. Yes, the parking sucks and they only... More

Based on the recommendation from an associate I decided to give this place a try. I have had hit and miss luck with Triple D spots since many get so overwhelmed that they cannot keep up the quality. Our party of 2 arrived around 6pm on Wednesday night and the place was pretty sparse. There were several people at the... More
