I never miss an opportunity to go to Lou's several times when I come to Vegas. The service is great and many of the staff have been there for years. They are open only for breakfast starting at 5:30 AM and lunch and close at 3 PM I think. There biscuits and gravy are great so I am told by... More

A diner close to Las Vegas but far from tourist attractions, we got served a copious and very delicious breakfast. The menu is very varied. Waitress were very very nice and kind. I'd definitely recommend it if you'd like to go to Vegas and have a quiet/ Real American breakfast

I recently read an article in the local paper about this little restaurant. It has been in business for a great number of years and my friend and I decided to check it out. They have counter service, booths and tables. The food was good, reasonably priced and the wait staff very friendly. I am just tired of the casino... More

This diner has been here since the late 1960s, when Decatur & Alta was the edge of town - when there was nothing but sagebrush beyond. Neat collection of memorabilia has accumulated here & now hangs on the walls. A fun, friendly place overall with standard diner fare at reasonable prices. Popular with locals. About the only place in town... More

Hubby and I looked online for a small off the strip place to grab breakfast. I found Lou's Diner and looked at the reviews and decided to try it out. LOVE IT, this is a great small off the strip location that has great food and awesome customer service. The owner/manager is attentive and walked around to each table to... More

Vegas is expensive. There's no doubt about it. So when you get a chance to save a few bucks, do it. Lou's is a classic throwback hole in the wall, local diner. We went for breakfast. It was everything you could want and/or need. I had the skillet (pictured). It was great. ONE IMPORTANT NOTE: We used Waze to get... More
