Uncle Louie’s Diner

About Uncle Louie’s Diner

Uncle Louie's Diner was founded in August of 2019 by David Steward (Uncle Louie) and Debbi LaParr. The happy couple have dreamed of opening a diner in Sturgis ever since Debbie returned to her home town. After searching far and wide for a location, Dave and Deb struck a deal to lease a building on the beautiful historic Sturgis Main Street.

In 5 days, Dave, Deb, and their newly hired staff got work training, cleaning, and preparing for their "soft" opening day. On Aug. 31, citizens of Sturgis and visitors lined up to try the new food hub in town. It didn't take long for word to get out and soon people were coming in hoards and waiting their turn to try the food.

After several months of being open, Uncle Louie's Diner issued a challenge to the community. Eat a 6 pound burger and fries meal, get it for free and a t-shirt. This challenge has attracted people from all over South Dakota and its neighboring states. To this day, not a single soul has accomplished the Uncle Louie's Challenge.

The history of our diner would not be possible if it were not for people like you. Hungry patrons who enjoy a fresh, quality food in an actual diner, not a bar. We owe are success to you and will forever be thankful to you!
