The very best menu item. Save room for it. The fried chicken was very good, southern style, well-seasoned, juicy -- and a generous serving. That's the good news. Unfortunately, the sides can best be described as a salt-aholic's delight. Fries had so much salt I...More

If you like chicken sandwiches, this is a must in Ypsi. Love their creativity when it comes to monthly specials. Don’t be surprised at how spicy their most spicy sandwich is. A big greasy bag of fries hits the spot, but the game changer is...More

Ma Lou's is one of Ypsilanti's best kept secrets! Several people raved about it and I had to try it for myself! The wings were huge, I chose the medium spiced wings. If you don't want spicy, chose the southern fried version. The potato salad...More

Ma Lou's is the culmination of a man who loves chicken. What was once a pop up place, then a food cart, is now a full fledged sit down restaurant. This place is not fancy, and it doesn't nee to be. The focus is the...More
