Tasty pizza!

We were in town on a Monday visiting the Hoover Presidential Museum and there did not seem to be a lot open. We stopped here and had a very tasty pizza at a very reasonable price. They also had salads and sandwiches available. Nothing fancy. Small dining area in front, bar/large eating area in... read more

It is hard when you are traveling to pick just the right place to stop. We forgot to ask for some suggestions when we were at the Library so we just picked one. We just wanted something small. Herb 'n' Lou's is a bar restaurant that serves pizza. It smelled good and they had some small pizza's available. We were... More

A great local restaurant with tasty pizza. The best is the "Herbs Heaper"- a deluxe with all the topping. Avoid the salads, it's just not what they're good at. Pick up or dine in. On a Friday night call at least an hour to 90 minutes ahead!

I've been here many times over the last decade. in recent years the quality of the pizza has, in general, gone down. My last few times the pizza has ranged from fairly good to definitely below average. I know several other locals who say the same thing; apparently it depends on who's cooking the day you go. On the other... More

Subs are hot and good value but the taco pizza really gets the kids excited! be prepared for kids on the loose playing inappropriate arcade games and beered up parents. All is good small town fun.

This location has great sandwiches and pizzas. The prices are very reasonable and the food tasty. Two couples visiting and one shared a pizza and one share a pastrami on rye. Delicious! Good layout on TVs if you want to keep up on the world's events.

This is a nice little place in West Branch Iowa. A good stop after visiting the Herbert Hoover grounds. They have very good pizza and a friendly staff.

Yummy thin crust pizza but Herb and Lou's is not fancy. Try a Herb's Heaper (meat) or a Light Lou (veggie).

Granddaughter picked because she liked the name - and wanted pizza. Very friendly staff - family oriented - had great conversation with other diners who were entertaining an exchange student from Germany - so it was a very interesting lunch as well as VERY good food. Not a fancy spot - but would recomment. Good value.
