Bar Louie (Northeast Metro)

Check out this casual restaurant for your oversized sandwiches needs, like the meatball hoagie loaded up with meatballs, pepperoni, marinara, giardiniera, mozzarella, and parmesan. For dessert, sample their Trio Tini-- carrot cake, brownie bites, and donut holes all on one plate. Or throw back one of their 24 specialty drinks, like the mango mojito.
