Had the Dijon mushroom swiss burger. Dinner was very delicious. Nice and juicy. Very flavorful. You can tell burgers are hand made. Service is excellent. Very attentive. High recommend.

If you want a great burger experience, visit Louie M's! The food was out of this world delicious - we recommend the grilled tenderloin sandwich! The waitress was a hoot! Think Mel's Diner with Flo as your waitress. Felt like we were eating with relatives! It was GREAT! Please do visit this spot - you won't regret giving it a... More

Very interesting place for a change of pace breakfast. Weekday breakfasts are pretty much ordinary fare. However on the weekend you find specials such as asparagus omelets, strawberry french toast and a variety of skillets. Everyday items include excellent link sausage, Italian toast (Orsi's bread), delicious French toast and wonderful coffee. Louie, his sons, as well as Jimi Jo and... More

Been going here for years. Campy service that is friendly, cheaper than fast food yet extraordinary food. The name sake burgers are a must. Try the Feta Burger, it always makes me sad. Not that the portions are not generous, but it's so darn good that it's depressing when your finished...... it really is that good. Spice it up with... More

When in Omaha, the beef place, you have to go to Louie's Burger Lust. Huge luscious hamburgers made to order, onion rings fries, adult drinks and retro sodas. Eclectic ambiance is amazing!!

Another best of Omaha Burger site! Fun to go to South Omaha and check out the grocery stores with a Mexican flare. They have a nice outdoor eating area too.

This little, unassuming place in South Omaha has great burgers (and what a variety). The portions are huge, and everything is served with a down home touch. You can't go wrong no matter what you order. Be prepared to be stuffed when you finally waddle out the door.

Have had many breakfast and lunch meals here. They have all been good. They serve some of the best hamburgers, plus a few Mexican dishes. They get very busy at times and they have limited space. They do have a small party space. The decor is older but the service is good.

We've gone here for 30 plus years and Louie always puts out good food with good and friendly service. The burger list is deep. I've eaten every type and they are all tasty. The fries and rings are great. A side plate of lettuce onions and tomatoes (in season - no plastic mayors here) come with every burger. Breakfasts are... More
