Louie M's Burger Lust on Urbanspoon

Omaha, NE 68108

Breakfast and lunch everyday 'til 3 or 4

Just a Few of the Condiments Available

I'm gonna go ahead and put this one on the Must Eat List, if not for the food then for the novelty. Located within the Vinton Street Commercial Historic District--an area on the National Register of Historic Places as of 2006--Louie M's opened in the 80's, when there was that fascination with the 50's, and it shows. Our table was next to the wall of dead celebrity headshots and the bar with the quintessential old-fashioned shiny barstools. This is real life retro shit here. I can't be completely sure, but I would bet the menu hasn't been updated since the 80's either, with your standard breakfast and burger fare. Inspired by the impressive selection of hot sauces on the table, we chose the Taco Burger and the Cajun Burger. Not gonna nitpick here (if you like your burger rarer than medium well, better say so). The toppings were fresh, the cheese was melty, the buns were hot and toasty. Judging by the clientele, perfect for hangovers and lunch breaks alike. Also good for out-of-towners who want to see where real Omahans go.
Taco Burger: Lettuce, Tomato, Shredded Cheddar and Side of Salsa
Cajun Burger: Chopped Onion, Green Pepper, Swiss Cheese and Cajun Spices
