Being from Austin we are used to the 24 hour not the cleanest place diner experience. Just now that you are coming to Louie's for the food and not how upscale it is. This is what breakfast should be. Located right off of LSU campus we were in carb paradise, we drove 15 minutes out of way from our hotel to eat here based on strength of reviews.

Everything, and I mean everything was delicious. Please try the omelette's and get a side of the spicy hashsbrowns on the side, amazing! Our sons loved the animal shaped pancakes they will make for you freehanded, our son chose a cow. It was impressive, complete with an utter and all! The service was great and the people watching fun. Go here.

I sat at the counter and got a show just watching their staff cook the meals. The pancakes I had were out of this world!

Louie's has been in the LSU area for 50+ years. It is open 24/7 and has great hash browns, breakfast food and burgers. The grease is dripping off the walls, and decor isn't important!! Try anything - you will like it.

Sat at the counter on a Sunday morning was perfect for this English visitor. I love old-fashioned American diners and Louie's is definitely that. If you want a huge breakfast, go for it. Apparently it never closes.

Good breakfast diner servicing LSU students and faculty. Lots of food with good prices. A Baton Rouge institution.
