This is one of my regular spots and the reason is simple: it's close to my office, has variety, and is the best place in it's peer group to get good All-American food! If I want wings, this is always the place. I also really enjoy their burgers and chicken sandwiches, which is their Thursday special. Their Cobb salad is... More

Loved this place!! Great staff, really good food at a very fair price. Nice to walk around and see all the IU memorabilia. I would go here again.

My extended family loves this place as do I. We like to sit at the big table at the very top and play monopoly, if it's not busy or if there is not a sporting event on tv. ( forget it if IU is playing!) great burgers too, the go to item is the wings honey BBQ! Yum!

Total college spot, and I loved it! We went on $5 burger night (any burger or chicken sand for only $5, what I deal, man I miss college!) Anyway I got the Sweet Lou chicken sandwich. It was soooo good. Very messy, but well worth it. My husband who is a wing fanatic loved the wings! If we are even... More

Excellent boneless wings & onion rings. Medium wing sauce has just the right amount of flavor & heat. Large menu selection, lots of seating.

I was in town recently for a Mizzou/IU Football Game and checked out the other reviews on this site, so it was on my preferred list in Bloomington. Buffa Louie's is right across the street from the IU Campus, so after a drive through the campus, this was a perfect spot. We talked to the locals at the next table... More

The wings were very good and the service was great. I really enjoyed the Indiana University memorabilia and the college students working there. This place reminded me of my college days and was a good place to show my son who was doing a college visit.
