I didn't realize there was one still in DC. I used to go to one in Silver Spring years ago. The seasoning on the Fries is great. Next time I get to the DC area I will be stopping in for a burger and some fries.

In fact, I think there are two in DC. There's the one at the corner of E $12th, and another one further north on L Street? The one on L Street I didn't even know about until someone on roadfood pointed it out to me.

I managed an office near the Ollies in Louisville and thoughtit was OK. I do hate batter coated fries though, but the cajun burger was ok.
There is one in Cinci but its kinds in the "hood" I dropped a coworker off accross the street after work and it wasnt open at nite(back in 98-99).
In Louisville there was a lot of good choices in the area. The Dizzy Whiz, I could never ask for a Whiz burger tho. They had an awsome unbreaded Pork tender that was like a good steak sandwich. Also a great diner in the same block.

Back on a visit to my home town of Windsor, Ontario, there was a location on Erie St. next to a KFC
(or referred to in those parts also as "Scott's Chicken Villa") -- where I got my one and only
Ollieburger: delicious!

And that location's probably long gone, since I made that visit sometime in the '80s....

Ollie's Trolley got started long before Lums started serving them. They were one of many of former Kentucky Governor John Y Brown's line of restaurants. They didn't do so well, so he dumped them. I remember the ones in Louisville well, and I try to go there whenever I am able to get to Louisville (I now live in San Diego)

well, i had my first ollie burger and fries a few weeks ago when i was in dc. it was heavenly. making my mouth water just thinking about those lovely seasonings. i'll stop again next year when i go to the smithsonian.
i didnt find the place to be dingy. maybe i have different standards or maybe they have cleaned it up a bit.

1 tsp Heinz 57 Sauce
1/4 tsp Garlic Salt
1 tsp Vinegar

1. Mix the above ingredients.
2. Take 1 1/2 to 2 lbs. of ground round and shape meat into round
patties, 3/4" thick and 3 1/2"round.
3. Place in a covered container and pour the marinade mixture over them.
Cover tightly and refrigerate 12 hours or overnight.
Turn the patties frequently.
4. Remove from marinade and sear over high heat to seal in the juices,
then turn down heat and cook to your desired doneness.

I've made the burger, and it was pretty close, but does anyone have the recipe for the sauce?

I haven't tried it but I was told this is the spice mix to make the Ollie's Sauce... Let us know how it is..

Ollie's Red Sauce

1/2 C sugar
1/2 C salt
2 TBS paprika
2 TBS ground cayenne
1 TBS ground cumin
1 TBS ground celery seed
1/2 TSP ground coriander seed
2 tsp garlic powder

Mix together in a blender or jar.
Add water as needed and brush on the burgers before cooking, during cooking and before serving!!!!

For Fries just put in a metal salt shaker with out any water.
Cover fries right out of fryer.

O.K. here it is, I have found a gentleman that was the owner of several Lums restaurants in New England. He sells the “original” Ollie’s spice mixture for $9 per pound plus shipping. I am a native of Miami and spent many an afternoon at Ollie’s original steak house on Miami Beach. This is the real deal! As far as a bun sauce, there was NEVER any sauce on the original Ollie burger, in fact you were likely to get yelled at or something thrown at you if you tried to put ANYTHING on a burger that Ollie made. This is the same spice mixture that he used on his fries and in his thousand island dressing as well as on his awesome green beans. For a true Ollie burger, add 1 tsp of this spice mixture to each 1/3 lb. Burger meat. Let sit for 30 minutes and grill. I promise you that any of you old Miami Beach High School students will think your back at Ollie’s place. The only thing that will be missing is Ollie yelling at Terrie.

There was one in Bloomington, IN in late 70's, early 80's, just off campus (IU). There's a McDonalds there now.

There was an "Ollie's Trolley" in downtown Memphis near City Hall (Mid America Mall) in the 70s-80s. Probably made most of its money from office workers and the like.

Never ate there.No toilet.
