Review of Loui Loui's - Authentic Detroit Style Pizza in Louisville, KY

 photo 20130901_183725-1_zps4fc777a3.jpgWell, being that my husband and I are born-and-raised Detroiters, we felt it our duty to indulge in some real “home” cooked pizza! Loui Loui’s is a nice looking restaurant, both on the outside and inside. There is plenty of seating, and dining areas include wall TVs for viewing sporting events (extra TVs in the full bar seating area).

 photo 20130901_184049_zps1d79762e.jpgWe had a party of 7, and were seated immediately (on a Sunday around 6:00). Drink orders were taken, then food orders. This is where things turned ugly. I know, from experience, that the square deep-dish pies take a while to cook, but given the lack of patrons, there is no way we should have waited the 45-minutes we did … just to get our salads!!! To pass time, we took it upon ourselves to grab coloring books and crayons from the front, which were not offered to us by the hostess or by our waiter, even though we had 4 children in tow. Over the course of time, the kids needed to use the restrooms (or play in them out of boredom). *Note; there are no changing tables in the bathrooms.

They offer 10 signature pizzas (pies) to select from, or you can opt to start with basic cheese and build your own with toppings. Prices range from $11.99-$39.99 depending on the type of pie, and the size (4-square, 8 or 10). The square pieces are each very large, and very heavy/filling. They also offer a variety of Italian-style appetizers, and a nice selection of salads. The kid’s menu consists of pizza, spaghetti & meatballs, chicken fingers, and macaroni & cheese. Each are $4.99, and come with a choice of salad, fruit, or French fries, with milk or soft drink included.

Overall, if the service wasn’t incredibly slow and inadequate, this review would be great where food is concerned! Unfortunately, when it comes to a family dinner out, these things do matter. Maybe an evening out among adult friends, to enjoy some great pizza and a ball game on the TV, would be the best option for Loui Loui’s … For our family; we’re sticking with pizza delivery!
