To best describe Uncle Louis is one statement, I would have to say "It where the locals go for breakfast." It's not a formal eating establishment. But, it does have great all-day breakfast and lunch offerings at reasonable prices. Many of the patrons are "regulars",...More

We waited for about 10 min outside, but you expect that on a Sunday morning. Well worth the wait. Service was good, food was great! I had biscuits and gravy with hash browns. Delicious! We will be coming back. Probably get here earlier than 10am.

We always search out local restaurants. This restaurant did not disappoint. The menu was very creative for a breakfast spot. The service was good and fast. Overall, the experience was very good but not up to par with a 5-star restaurant.
