Stopped in here for lunch right around noon on a Tuesday. Place was busy but the line moved quickly and despite the smallness of the space, I had no issue finding a place to sit. The first cashier was new and was having a breakdown trying to learn the system, but I thought it was handled well, as she simply... More

After Graceland, we had to try Uncle Lou's after hearing about it on DDD. Got to meet Uncle Lou himself that day and had one of the best pieces of fried chicken I've ever had. Certainly isn't the traditional crunchy fried chicken, but that sweet spicy honey dip Uncle Lou puts on it makes it taste like heaven. And besides... More

After visiting Graceland we stopped here after a friend's recommendation. The neighborhood was a bit shady, but nothing to be concerned about. I think it was obvious we had never been there when we were looking over the menu board so a woman came out from behind the counter to hand us the paper menu. We ordered a tennessee round... More

Upon reading the reviews I had recalled watching this on Diners/Drive-ins so I was sold. Not to mention chicken called... More

Tried this when we saw it rate above Gus's which we think has gone down in quality. The classic chicken was great and my husband devoured the spicy chicken. We tried all of the sides and none of them were disappointing. The best was the potato salad followed by the fried pickle spears. The corn nuggets were good, but a... More

As a vegetarian, I worried about going to a place that specialized in fried chicken (I went moreso to allow my friends to get this treat). However, Uncle Lou's had a unique grilled cheese (topped off with honey!) which was a treat for me. Uncle Lou's is a good dive spot where you can get a quick meal. Further, the... More
