My friend and I usually top off our long walks with lunch at La Bou. I love their half sandwich and house salad. No matter what choice, it is always good and I don't feel guilty eating it all.

I spent most of college living off their half a baguette cut up and dipping it in their dill dressing with some mango ice tea to wash it all down. Affordable deliciousness. Just make sure you show up early, they always run outta the good stuff fast! ;)

They have a really yummy creamy tomato bisque which never disappoints. Their Chicken Cesear and Oriental Chicken salads are also very good.

Everything on the menu is good, prices very reasonable, and good service. A local chain. I appreciate that every one is very clean.

Had the chicken wrap, it was good but nothing extraordinary. Plan to go back soon and try something else

My wife and I stop in periodically to the La Bou restaurants around town, with the one on 11th and O being the most. Great soups, fresh salads, great choice of premade and made to order sandwiches with selections of breads, and even the oatmeal is good! The price is right for what you get! Enjoy!

I love a fresh sandwich & I especially love getting a loaf of bread and some dill dip. The salads are excellent too.

We very rarely even see this restaurant. It is not on the beaten path and kinds became boring.

The sanwiches are good. The salads and Vietnamese food are above average. The asian chicken salad and the rice paper spring rolls are my favorite. It's a little messy and more attention could be given to the cleanliness of the tables and the ladies bathroom (not sure about the men's). I always get a little nervous when a bathroom is... More
