Did a Yelp search for local sandwiches while in King of Prussia, few weeks ago. Authentic people and location. Wish I had one right now...

No time for travel? Here's a trip! In a good way, I mean. Time-machine yourself to Lou's. Blink and you'll miss it - that would be a shame! Family-owned. A Norristown historical gem still alive and kicking. Their food is fresh and prepared with care - watch! Delicious breakfast & lunch menu. 1940s architecture and decor to delight. Chrome 'n'...

Whenever I am in Norristown visiting my in-laws Lou's is a must stop. Food is always on point. No frills, good value, good, quick service. Always scenic with locals who have been eating here for years. Truly an institution for Norristown. If you're close, stop in and get a sandwich!!

Lou's is an icon in Norristown. You don't vitit Norristown and NOT stop at Lou's. That would be ridiculous!. Don't expect a lot of glitz or pampering but do expect GREAT food!

Liked: the food as only Lou's can make it, Zeps, hoagies, sauces. Disliked waiting and the gruff waitperson. I called in our order to pick up. A great foodie item to take on the plane and share with friends!

Worth the trip from Philly just to go back to an old fashioned luncheonette with wonderful sandwiches. Had our first zeps and they were great! Very large menu, service was pleasant, and parking is very easy in front. Great old-fashioned lunch counter!
