Food: Louie M's Burger Lust (Preface)

The wife and I are accumulating a nice collection of breakfast joints.  We have Lisa's Radial Cafe, Dixie Quick's Magnolia Room, the 11-Worth Cafe, and the Bunkhouse Cafe in Logan, IA.  We now have a fifth.

I saw Louie M's Burger Lust last week when I was walking the city.  We went back on Sunday to check out the place.  The cafe is located on Vinton Street.  If you're not familiar with the area, you'll probably be in for a surprise.  This section of Vinton St, between 15th and 19th streets, looks like someone picked up a small town main street and plopped it down in south Omaha.  I really liked the look of this street.

I have yet to find a bad review for this cafe.  Our review is that it's awesome.  The Wife had a Crab Omelet that she loved and I had a very good Chicken Fired Steak and Eggs.   The ambiance was down home comfort.  The waitresses call you honey and dear.  Perfect.  I expect many more visits in the future.

Now, to be honest, we only had breakfast and did not have a burger at the Burger Lust.  That's why this post is just the preface. We will have to return sometime (hopefully soon) to check out their famous burgers and I will finish the review.

The only complaint I've seen about this place is it's hard to get there when it's open.  I think this is because people are trying to eat supper and the cafe is only open from 6:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

Good food, good ambiance, good service, in an interesting neighborhood.  Highly recommended ... so far.

  1. I don't know if it's just me but I would feel a little weird being called "dear" while ordering breakfast. Well... I usually don't have breakfast anyway.

    By the way, remember your speeding ticket? I got one last friday. Fortunately there is no point-based driving licence over here.

  2. Godefroy: This kind of waitress friendliness is desirable in this area of the United States. Unfortunately it is not as common as it used to be, especially in cities.

    I don't feel so lonely now :-)

  3. I love the name. :)

    Honey and dear coming from the right person/s doesn't bother me but then there are others who use it and I want to poke their eyes out...

  4. JaG: It is a great name isn't it? The waitresses seem to be friendly and I think the Honey/Dears suit them well. You'd like it I think.
