The Best Western Hotel recommended this place and it was disgusting! We had just had a long drive and did a take out of prime rib and some salads. The lettuce in the salads was slimy and rotten. The prime rib was flavorless. We ended up throwing it all out and drove up the street to buy a new dinner... More

My wife and I just moved into the area and had to try this 60 year old restaurant. In many respects in is like stepping back into the 1950s. I can't believe the décor has changed much from the original motif in this location. Very neat and clean, but definitely from a time when all things were much simpler. The... More

I get to Auburn 2-3 times each year, but had never been to this restaurant. Was in town over the weekend and went to Lou's with a cousin (a semi-foodie) and her husband (more so). They normally dine at the higher end of things, but decided to take me to Lou La Bonte's as they figured it was more my... More

Although it's not anything to write home about, I found the food to be of a good quality. The atmosphere is pleasantly quiet and I found the overall experience to be very enjoyable. My server was very attentive and responded quickly to my needs. He was quite knowledgeable of the menu and made several excellent suggestions.

old place, nice people, good food, but smelled like an old bar. great pics of how it used to be, great neon, Lou sure loved himself. salad was fresh, other food looked good, a place where yuppies used to go, now they go next door. enjoy Lou's, no surprises good or bad.

My elderly mom wanted to have what she calls 'a good hamburger,' so we went to Lou La Bonte's just up the street from our motel. We got there about 6:00 PM and there were a few customers at the bar and two other tables. Our server was pleasant and attentive. Mom and I both ordered burgers, which were indeed... More

Even though this restaurant didn't have all the lights on outside that it should have, it almost looked closed, we gave it a chance. It is right next to the Best Western Golden Key Hotel that we stayed at and they said it was good - and they were right. While there weren't very many people in the bar/dining room... More

One of the oldest restaurants in the area with ambiance and great food. It is conveniently located just off of I-80 if one is headed toward Tahoe or Reno and a great place to stop if you enjoy karaoke or a dinner show on a Friday night! My family and I have been enjoying this place for at least ten... More
