This is my favorite hot dog/chili dog joint in the country. No matter where I go I always wish they have one of these. It's just delicious. And I always ask for mines with the works.

Louie's has some great foods at reasonable prices, I guess that's what keeps drawing us back. Usually stop late at night after going out somewhere but we have gone for breakfast and lunch too. Food has always been good, staff is usually friendly and quick. If you get the hot dogs, make sure to get it with "everything".

Didn't want to wait 20 mins for Panos table or for Cole's to open -- grabbed a quick simple breakfast : eggs, grits , home fries, sausage, toast, coffee & oj. Sat outside on the sidewalk cafe area in the shade. Pleasant, fast and decent food, good coffee, solid diner fare. And the price was right, staff attentive. It was... More

The food is great, highly recommend ordering fries with "Sauce and cheese". Exactly how you ask for it. The service is average diner waitresses. No tables just 7 stools and a counter. Open 24hrs best time to sit and enjoy is late-night week nights.

Tonight i went to louie's and was thoroughly dissapointed. Normally the staff is drunk, which is fine with me. I ordered and waited. Before i left, I checked my bag, and the waitress yammered "This ain't mcdonald's". I'm assuming to tell me that i don't need to check my order before i leave. I take this to heart, so that... More

Great dogs and sweet fries but lots of other choices too. Only open in summer.Good choice before u hit the Thruway and eat outside on the picnic tables as inside is too hot most times.

When you think foot long hot dog the first place that come to mind is Louie's. Also don't forget the curly cue fries. Of course they have burgers, sausage etc. but if you're going to cheat on your diet you have to get the dog and fries.
