I and my friends visit this restaurant often to celebrate, watch sports, and enjoy the food. We always have a good time and get good service. Would like this restaurant to allow split checks, and not sure why they do not allow split checks?

Great value, ribs were tender and fries crisp, fast & friendly service. We recommend Louie's and will return. We did return one set of silverware as it was spotted and bent. Steve C was our server.

We are spending the week here on South Padre Island and the weather has been a little questionable so we decided to check out Louie's. We had excellent service from Michael R and the food was awesome. Try the pumpkin cheesecake, it was highly recommended and amazing!

The staff were all very helpfull and... More
