Louie's Lunch is a food truck on Cornell's north campus, right across the bridge from the arts quad. It's been serving food to Cornellians and Ithacans alike since 1918, and while the fare is a little different, the tradition is the same. Louie's is open all day and most of the night – and when it's not open, you should really be sleeping. When we began researching the history of Louie's Lunch, we were trying to establish, at least for ourselves, what Louie's Lunch represented to Cornell through the years. At the time, while working the counter, I could still remember people asking if we were Hot Truck, our competitor on West Campus, because, for some people, Louie's Lunch was a representation of the Hot Truck on North Campus. With our research, we were somehow confirming Louie's Lunch as an establishment of North Campus as an important part of Cornell. Then, things got really interesting. Our research lead us to photos and articles of the food trucks as they changed both owners and looks through the ages, and even mention of President Day. The history of the "Louie's Lunch" truck made us realize "Louie's Lunch" is, indeed, a part of the Cornell history.
