If you are looking for chicken that tastes unlike any other chicken you have had, THIS is the place. We split the 3 piece, sweet spicy mild mixed, and had 2 sides, fried pickles and okre. Came with one biscuit, added another. Water to drink. Was about 12 bucks. The sweet spicy mild sauce on the chicken is kinda 1/2... More

When (or before) you get tired of the lines and rude service at Gus's Fried in Memphis, it's time to head to between the Airport and Graceland to Uncle Lou's fried chicken. It's in a little strip mall on Milbranch. You'll know you're their because of the HUGE pictures of Guy Fieri from DDD on the front of the building... More

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

Came back for the chicken with the love sauce but also tried the grilled cheese. Wow. Not sure which was my favorite. Can't wait to get back and have both again. Keep up the great work Uncle Lou!!!
