BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Buffalo’s Elmwood Village will soon be home to a Western New York staple specializing in one of America’s favorite foods – the hot dog.

As first reported by Business First, the owner of 1096 Elmwood will open a Louie’s Texas Red Hots at the highly visible address this summer. Saigon Cafe, which currently operates at that location, is expected to move elsewhere.

Louie’s Texas Red Hots currently operates six locations in Western New York. Established in 1967 by Louie Galanes, it features a breakfast, lunch, dinner and late-night menu.

Galanes tells News 4 the new Elmwood location, near Forest, will be open 24 hours and should be in operation by the end of August.

The Elmwood Village has been without a restaurant specializing in char-broiled hot dogs since a fire destroyed Louie’s at Elmwood and Bryant. Despite the Louie’s name, that restaurant was not affiliated with the Louie’s Texas Red Hots chain.

The former Louie’s location is now home to Newbury Street, an organic cafe.
