To know Louie’s is to love Louie’s -- and to smell it on your clothes for the rest of the day. A longtime standby of inebriated students, night owls, and early risers in the LSU area, this 24-hour diner is the only place in town that will bring you a bacon cheeseburger and a side of pancakes without a second glance. Leave your dietary restrictions at the door, and when the waitress asks whether you want cheddar, Swiss or Jack cheese on your fries, tell her, “Yes.”

Not all greasy spoons are created equal, and George's sets itself apart. This dive beneath an interstate overpass is known for the dollar bills stuck to the ceiling, for its famous slogan ("Business is great, people are terrific, life is wonderful"), and for serving up some of the city's best burgers, fries, onion rings, and po-boys. Put some heartburn meds on standby and belly up to this bar for one classic BR meal.
