I've been there quite a few times and I always bring home left-overs. It may take awhile to get seated but once you're in, everything is Great! The Service, the Cooks, the Food, just Great.

Great place to eat . Home cooking with a large diverse menu. Good prices and friendly service. No thrills or fancy decor, just a basic diner with great food.

We arrived about 11:45 and there was only one table in the front room open and one in the next room where the salad bar is available so we were glad we hadn't arrived later. My husband had the hot beef sandwich which he said was fine and I had a grilled chicken breast sandwich with bacon and cheese and it was delicious. The fries were real good as well. We would definitely go back.

BEST denver omelet ever! I can't even make one this good at home. Staff was busy but still took time to socialize with us while we ate and finished our meals. If you leave hungry, it's your own fault. Great food & service for the money. The staff at Uncle Louie's deserves a much needed day of rest after the rally. I will definitely be back.

Excellent breakfast this morning. Great coffee and friendly and fast service. We will probably go back again this week. The gravy for the biscuits and chicken fried steak and they put on the breakfast burrito my wife got was delicious. Would totally recommend!
Matt Unruh
We had the steak tips and eggs. Highly recommend. Hubby had gravy on his hash browns and I got a side of gravy for my white toast. It was like adding a side of biscuits and gravy to my meal. Best gravy I've had in a long time. The staff was super duper friendly. Definitely worth a few minutes wait to be seated.
Kim Zwiener
Great food-we both got omelets, Denver and meat-and they were delicious. Coffee was amazing too-they made sure I had plenty french vanilla creamer. Service was great. We would definitely recommend it-we had breakfast here a few days of our week vacation.

A classic diner. Good food, good portions, we had great service. It was honestly lower priced than what I thought for a tourist town. No frills, not chic, just good.
Cameron Campbell
Fast and friendly service. Good portions for a good price. Definitely stop here to eat if you're in town.

The place looks like it's been here forever. But it's very clean and well kept inside. They advertise breakfast all day. I had the El Cid? breakfast burrito. Eggs, potatoes and pulled pork. All smothered in green chile sauce. Absolutely delicious.
Walter Wrona
Our server was Mackenzie, she was fun attentive and helpful in decision making on our orders. we had a fajita and smothered chicken. Both were very good. Customer service and food were excellent, and prices were good. What more can you expect from a restaurant.
Dave Fett
This is not a fancy place, but, the food is the best! The burger doesn't even fit inside the bread or roll, it's huge! All fresh made, the salad bar is also good. The service is great, down to earth. Highly recommend!!

My buddy and I discovered this place last year during the rally, and I can't wait to come back! We ate breakfast there three times, and every time was awesome. If you're going to Sturgis, you have to stop at Louie's!
J. McNutt
What an amazing, fun place to eat!! Staff was efficient and friendly. The food was freshly made, very tasty and huge portions!! Can't wait to eat here again.
Debbie Penny
Uncle Louie's has great breakfast at excellent prices. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere had a 60s vibe. Definitely will eat there next time in the Black Hills.

Go hungry!!! Food is delicious and huge. We got 2 of the crispy fried chicken sandwiches and they could have fed the whole table. So juicy and tender
Justine Shahan
Such a great small mom and pop diner. If you are going there with a family, just know the prices are VERY affordable! We absolutely loved our waitress.
Michaela Lavender
This was a great place to go. The food was delicious, the helpings were huge and the atmosphere was great! Can't wit to go again and try something else.
Andrea Osthus
Oh my stars, the portions are humongous for the price paid! And delicious. We were trying to eat light because it was late and might have been better off if we’d split the chicken fried steak, which everyone raves about. I got the crispy chicken sandwich sans bun and still could not eat it all. $3.50 glasses of wine! Husband had quesadillas which were four big flour tortillas cut into quarters. Needless to say, we took to go containers with us. A must visit. Old school, black and white VCT (vinyl composite tile) as per Architect Husband with tables and booths. Josie was an awesome waitress. They have everything from all day breakfast to pasta, hamburgers and other sandwiches and Mexican food. Save room for pie! Sadly, We didn’t. Enjoy!

Friendly atmosphere and great food! If you go away hungry it's your own fault. 😋 💜
Sonja Welke
Soooo good. They had me at "All day breakfast". Staff is so friendly, and does a great job of making the regulars feel like they are family. Grabbed a caramel pecan pie to go, so can't wait to have that for dessert tonight.Looking forward to going back and trying different things from their menu.Easily 5-stars.

If you are looking for a place to have a great breakfast, lunch and dinner in Sturgis that isn't a bar, Uncle Louie's is THE place to go. Good old American diner comfort food along with some house specialties, huge portions at reasonable prices and a wait staff that obviously loves working there. I can't say enough good things about this place. And it's a rare visit when Uncle Louie himself doesn't visit your table to spread some warmth and welcome. If you're wondering where the Sturgis locals eat, this is it. And I know because I am one of them.
Timothy Castor
Great food and portion sizes were very good. Super friendly staff and reasonably priced. Could not ask for more. Many locals continue to patronize this fine restaurant
Richard Graves
Food, price, and friendly staff make this a go to restaurant. Worth the drive 1/2 hr. from Rapid City. Soup and salad bar alone will fill a big appetite.
Rex Mayer
What a great place! The food was great and the staff was very friendly. Very impressed at how quick our meals came out. And the portions are huge! If you're in the mood for a great meal in a great diner, this is the place to go!
Rob Peterson
Amazing food!!! Best eggs i have had in a long while. Friendly staff. Great place to eat. Highly recommend you stop in
Amie Joy
Great breakfast, service, and we took home the pie of the month and get to enjoy the restaurant at home. Prices reasonable and a hometown feel and didn't have to wait long to enjoy what we ordered. Portions are big and I was enjoying the meal on another day. Worth the visit.
Tim Braley
The food is a good price and the staff is just awesome. They have a food challenge that's great! "Awesome Experience"

We went to Uncle Louies for the first time last Friday. Totally impressed with this restaurant!! I am very picky about how my steak is done and they cooked it to perfection. It was so good and I ate the whole plate of food which I rarely do!! Love this place and will definitely be back!!
Wanda Gottus
Our VA Nurse recommended Uncle Louie's Diner and are we ever glad we listened! Best omelet I think we've both ever had! Lots of food for the price, a very clean establishment and the service was outstanding. We will visit again...Thank you...
Gerri Lynn Owens
We were just visiting for the day when this was recommended to us. I'm really glad we went. They have great food, very large portions, reasonably priced. They were even able to accommodate the 20 people in our group. Which we greatly appreciated. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants good, American style food.
Tyler Zaugg
Stopped in for lunch. I had the patty melt and hubby had the lunch special which was the buffalo chicken strip sandwich. We both loved our meals. We came in just after 12pm and while it was busy, service was very fast. Staff is always very happy and clearly love what they do.
Brenda Bornsheuer
Surprisingly great little restaurant! This place is a gem. Fantastic menu and great service. It's the kind of small town restaurant that you always hope to find. Great little hidden gem. Breakfast was fantastic. Steak was cooked perfectly and just wonderful.
Chris Mitchell
OMG, We went to Uncle Louie's for the first time last Fri; discovered it by accident and I am wishing someone had told me about this place. It is a small, mom and pop type CLEAN hole in the wall type place. Super good service, FANTASTIC food and....get this... the prices were reasonable. For real, it was truely affordable. It was so good I am almost hesitant to share this info because I don't want the place to be overrun. I want to be able to get in there too LOL. I will be returning soon and I plan to make that my place to go for several meals. If the wait staff and cook see this, I want to give you a big thankyou for the best bicuits and gravy I have had in 20+years. Everything else was perfect too.
