I found myself with some time on my hands close to mid-day, and I drove past Louis' and thought, "why not?"
I got in just before the after church crowd, and have no complaints with the service - the server was pleasant and prompt.
I ordered the chicken and ribs combo plate, with beans, coleslaw, and garlic toast as sides.
The chicken and ribs I'd describe as just OK. Certainly not bad, but both on the bland side, to my tastes. Pretty much how I felt about the coleslaw. The beans tasted like they'd come directly out of a can, with no additional preparation, and very little warming up. The single slice of bread was only lightly toasted on the surface and looked as though it had been dabbed with a paintbrush that had been dipped in garlic butter.
I realize that cooking for the masses, especially on a scale that a popular restaurant does, is vastly different than backyard BBQing, but I was disappointed with the food considering how much I'd heard that the locals swear by this place.
