    Bringing back ALL the memories!

    I grew up in Hampton Roads (Norfolk, near the Wards Corner area first six years of my life), and ‘Uncle Louie’s’ was like that ever-present part of my childhood. Always there, taken for granted by me, so it was like a real shock when after I’d moved away from VA, I had read it had closed. I literally thought it would be there for years to come!

    To this day, I remember that classy black & gold, art decor-style decor. What a wonderful restaurant it was.

      Oops! I mean ‘art DECO-style decor’. Typing too fast, LOL!

  2. Uncle Louie’s Bar and Grill had many facets and was a welcome alternative to fast food and grocery store food as well as having excellent food with meeting places. I am not aware of any establishment that fulfills the foot print that it once had. Since its closing, I have not found any establishment that even comes close to what I experienced there.

    Nice memories for me too. However, I’d really rather be making NEW memories there. When Uncle Louie’s closed, it left huge holes in our community dining, deli and pub experience.
