Old Time Burgers; Old Time Place

Heard about this joint on Channel 31 by Newscaster Nick Toma (we miss him). He said it was one of the best burger places around Sac. OMG! He was right. Old, beat-up, 60's mode, low class, sketchy area, with an awesome burger! Ya park right in front; it's a drive-in. No drive-thru. Cash only... read more

I'll eat at McDonalds any day. This place is crap. The chicken breast is dipped in fat and fried. The kitchen looks dirty.

I'm not sure what the folks who gave Lou's Burgers a bad review are talking about. Eating at Lou's is like stepping back in time and eating at an old style drive in. The burgers are huge, thick patties with their special sauce. By the time you get half way through, the burger the buns are beginning to wear thin... More
