GUARANTEED SAVINGS Monday thru Friday Until 4 PM Daily       This is truly a tale of two Louis’ brothers that ran one restaurant together.  The brothers had some disagreements like all Italians do and for years the Fountain City neighborhood in Knoxville had the Original Louis’ Restaurant and just next door the New Louis’ Restaurant.  The recipes and menus were different and both restaurants had a substantial following.  Then a plan to reconstruct the Broadway interchange with Interstate 640 would mean the demise or relocation of both restaurants.  The Original Louis relocated just down the street on Old Broadway in a location that was the former Mustard Seed Cafe.  The New Louis’ retired.  The Original Louis’ now has a more modern location and still offers drive-in service to your car.  The menu remains practically the same as with the original recipes.       The Original Louis Spaghetti with meat sauce is a favorite menu item.  The meat sauce is more of a brown sauce than red and is thick and depending on the mix that day, can be rather spicy.  Served up with the house salad (practically nothing but iceberg lettuce) with either the homemade house Italian Dressing or the Roquefort (Blue Cheese) dressing and garlic bread makes quite the meal.  The restaurant offers lunch blue plate meals with an entree and two vegetables daily.  Italian Specialties with salad are also available on the lunch and dinner menus.  Louis’ Original is truly one of the restaurants to label “Best of Knoxville.” Salads Dressings:  Ranch, Blue Cheese, Thousand Island, French, Honey Mustard, Italian, Fat-Free Ranch, Fat-Free Italian.
