Not sure this place is clean – Extremely rude staff and questionable cleanliness. Good thing there is a Wallgreens close by to pick up some Pepto.... if you know what I mean.
I love Louie's!! – This was a family affair. Husband birthday and Mom birthday. Six of us arrived a little after 5pm on this Saturday night. Got a parking spot up front. Walked in and got the booth in the corner in the back as we wanted. Ordered drinks. Our waitress was Jennifer. Ordered soup and salads. We each got a different soup. They were all great. The caesar salad was excellent. Ordered five different pizza's and The Don. All Fabulous! We each had a different pie. All good!!! Perfect evening. GREAT food, GREAT service, GREAT place. Thank you Louies'!! Love ya!
Awful Experience – We saw this restaurant featured on one of the food channels so we decided to drive an hour to check it out. We waited for about 15 minutes to get a table after we gave our name to the hostess who was seemed overwhelmed and had sweat all over her face. It was disgusting to look at especially going to the restaurant for the first time. The restaurant was packed and there was no waiting area other than standing in the hallway of the entrance. The hostess approached us and we thought we were going to be seated, but that was not the case. She informed us that the owner was not allowing us to eat there because my 17 year old son was wearing a sleeveless Under Armour shirt. She explained that the owner does not allow customers to eat at the restaurant if they come in wearing tank tops and that's been their policy for the last 20 years. I told her my son is not wearing a tank top but rather a $35 dollar shirt that is just showing his biceps. I was thinking why would there be a problem for my 17 year old son wearing this nice shirt at this ex-gas station/dive bar/restaurant. After hearing what the hostess said, my son wanted nothing to do with the restaurant and wanted to leave. So we left hungry. On the hour drive back home, I thought I would give them a call and give them a piece of my mind. I called, asked for the manager or owner, and I got speak with an elderly lady who said she was the manager. She said the owner could not come to the phone because he was working behind the bar and he was supper busy. I explained our experience to the manager and she was sorry and told me she would have been happy to loan us a tee-shirt with sleeves. I asked her why the hostess didn't give us the same option when we were there and she said she didn't know why. I still requested to get a call back from the owner to get an explanation as why he refused service to us when it was clear that my son was not wearing a tank top. Never got a call back and we are never going back. So the lesson we learned and want to pass on is to make sure you check the dress code at this ex-gas station/ dive bar/restaurant before you drive a long distance to eat at Louie's in East Dallas.
Absolutely horrible – Words can't begin to describe the awful experience I just had at Louie's. If there was a Zero stars option, I would choose it. We sat down at our table at 7:15, and did not receive our pizzas until 9:40. When they did Finally arrive, all of them were cold, one was totally incorrect, and one was "delayed" by another 5 minutes. We had asked several times- during our TWO HOUR wait- about the pizzas, and were told that they were "on the way". When we spoke with the owner (a grey-bearded guy behind the bar) and explained our situation, he literally started to shout at us, asking "what do you do for a living?!" and "don't question how I run my restaurant when it's busy". What makes this experience so dissapointing is that this used to be one of our favorite restaurants- my husband and I have been eating there for over ten yeards. Needless to say- we won't return.
Best pizza and great ambiance – This is a classic dive bar, but it has some of the best pizza in Dallas. It can get very crowded on a Friday or Saturday night so I always go during the week. The servers are not charming, but they are great to regulars and the bartenders are nice guys too.
amazing bitchs stop hateing – the best pizza ever really and its not just pizza louie the owner one of the best guys you will ever meet super cool and that girl that worked there for 10 years or 11?! stop being a bitch its the best place to go
WORST SERVICE EVER!!!!!!! – We waited for 15 minutes for a waitress to come to the table to take a drink order, took another 15 minutes for the drinks to arrive. Our salad took another 15 minutes, another 20 for the food to arrive. Took 10 minutes from the time we requested a refill on the drink for it to arrive. Meal finished we requested the check, that took another 15 minutes. It was the WORST SERVICE we have ever experienced.
A Great New Find !! – OMG, we sooooo just loved our first experience at Louie's. On the recommendation of a good friend, and of course, other Yelp reviews, BF and I have been dying to give Louie's a try, salivating over the thought of a Greek Salad and their acclaimed pizza.
We were not disappointed. Arrived around 1700 on Saturday and were promptly seated, and greeted by friendly server, Tiffany. She could have not been more attentive. Drinks arrived quickly, order taken and we settled back with our libations to enjoy the evening. And thus we did! The Greek Salad, which we split, was delicious; more than enough for two. The dressing was so tasty, could have licked my bowl.
Our pizza, with pepperoni, black olives, garlic, tomatoes & onions, was possibly some of the best pizza we have enjoyed anywhere. Typically, I am a fan of a thicker crust, but Louie's changed my mind. The crust....to die for! And a large was REALLY large. The sauce was soooo yummy, toppings were generous, and it came out piping hot. We took half of it back to our hotel for a late night snack. (We were staying at the Melrose for a quick getaway from our daily Dallas house routines!) Pizza was completely gone before midnight !! Almost even better cold!
Unlike several of other reviews, our service was outstanding; quick, efficient and very friendly. We were in and out under an hour and by the time we left, the place was packed with folks waiting at the door to be seated.
A wonderful first time experience and impression. Can't wait to make plans to venture out of North Dallas and go back to see Louie down South !!!!
Great place for a bad experience – This place has always been a risk. Every time I have been to Louies you are unsure if you will be mistreated or simply served. NEVER expect to be welcomed because this is definitely NOT cheers. I have been to Louies numerous times over the years and I have chosen never to eat there again. Occasionally we choose to order take out but still anxious that they will be a--holes. Like their food hate the place!
Domino's Pizza at 3 times the price – Louie's Pizza is a rip off joint that came up with some type of scheme to get reviews claiming they have the Best Pizza in Dallas, DON'T BELIEVE IT, we bought a "large" pepperoni, which was smaller that most medium pizzas and had about 10 pieces of pepperoni. You can also buy a can of domestic beer for 5 bucks while you wait 20 minutes past the time they tell you your pizza will be ready.
