The menu has basic Italian entrees on it, but people come here for the pizza. It might best be described as upside-down pizza. From bottom-top: Crust-Pepperoni-Cheese-Sauce-Other Toppings. The cheese and sauce aren't like on other pizza's though. They're just a little richer and a little more tangy. For an appetizer, I suggest the antipasto salad. It's swimming in their own Italian dressing. Get a cold beer or a bottle of Chianti to wash it down.
This isn't a fancy place. It's a basic pizza joint filled with blue-collar folk who know good food when they taste it. The walls are covered with empty Chianti bottles bearing the magic marker scribbles of their consumers. It's a pretty nice effect!
The big weirdism about this place: CASH ONLY. No checks or credit cards accepted! Don't forget or you'll be washing dishes.
Louis' is located about a mile south of I-696 (Reuther Freeway) on Dequindre, past the race track.
