Fat Louie’s

It’s near Tech and it’s been open for about 6 months now, but I just last night made my way over to Fat Louie’s to try it out. It’s located on Marietta Street near Octane. I walked in and immediately it reminded me of this joint about a block away from where I used to live in Chicago – and that’s the point of it. It’s Chicago through and through. Chicago Italian Beef. Chicago Hot Dogs. And what I’ve always called Chicago-style hamburgers (though that doesn’t really exist). I had the burger and thoroughly enjoyed it.

It was a little expensive, but with the coupons in the Technique (and every receipt has a coupon for $1 off next time), it was well worth it. Quick, unassuming, good food, and it’s in a cool/growing area of town. The ambiance was nice and it’s got a nice patio which should be great for the summer. What more could you want in a burger joint?

Here’s the menu for Fat Louie’s.

    Did you notice if they have a veggie burger? Other veggie stuff?

    They do. I added the link for the menu today – a whole veggie section.

    Yes they have a veggie burger…and as I consider myself a veggie burger expert-of-sorts, I can honestly say theirs is the best I’ve eaten in the metro area.
