Hello everyone this is Chrissy & Donnie O'Dell, the very proud owners of King Louie's Drive-In for the past 18 years! After much debate, we have decided to start closing on Sunday as May 28th, 2017.  We are sincerely sorry for the inconvenience this might cause any of our loyal customers!  18 years of being open 7 days a week has taken it's toll on us and our staff.  We just feel like it's time for everyone involved to have a day off.  We assure you, there will be plenty of opportunities to get your King Louie's fix 6 days a week all year round!  After Memorial Day, we will remain closed on Sunday only.  Thank you for your support.  

Thank you all for your understanding!  

Chrissy & Donnie O'Dell

Welcome to King Louie's Drive-In!


Welcome to the original King Louie's Drive-In. We are the one, the only and the first King Louie's Drive-In. We are opened year round! All of our food is made to order, nothing is made in advance.

We accept Visa, Mastercard and even Discover card. Besides being opened year round, we also offer our famous carhop service year round. So when the weather gets rough, let our staff come to you! If you would rather join us inside, we have a dining room or counter seating as well. We also offer picnic tables for those days that you want your King Louie's and the sunshine too.

Don't forget, we offer call ahead orders! Call ahead ordering lets you place your order before you take your lunch break or while you are on the go, and we will have your food ready by the time you arrive. Our menu is available by clicking here or by simply clicking the menu tab at the top of this page.

Call us today for any questions or to place a call ahead order: 618-254-1114.

Thank you for your continued business and support!
