REALLY disappointed in this place. Service sucked...food was not even average. Grilled chicken had 0 flavor, fries were terrible, chicken was MAYBE average. Would have been a 1 but the burgers LOOKED good.

Nice friendly people, get there early if you can for lunch, the day I was there it filled up quick but even if you have to wait a little for a table it is worth it! This is Fried Chicken done right! And the price... cheaper than any fast food place... $6.88 for a 3 pc meal... I don't' know... More

My husband always asks "locals" where to eat and they recommended Uncle Lou's. We weren't very hungry but had the corn fritters (Excellent), honey topped biscuits (excellent) and split a grilled cheese (very good). Wish we'd have tried the chicken. Next time. Everyone was very friendly!

Stayed at the Memphis Airport Courtyard by Marriott and was recommended by the front desk to eat here! Great food!

It's a great place to visit, excellent service and good food. It's a "greasy spoon", but the chicken is very tasty. I would recommend less salt on the cheeseburger and fries.

Food was amazing! This will be our go to place when we travel through Memphis! Chicken with the sweet spicy loving sauce hit the spot! Burgers were awesome and the grilled cheese was huge! Corruption seasoning that we put on our fries was awesome! Family friendly atmosphere!

I travel to Memphis from Chicago and had to make this my first stop as soon as I left the airport. Those biscuits along with the chicken is reason alone to make a trip here. I've been stopping in when in town over the last few years and the food quality is consistent and always on point.

We were greeted right when we came in. Everyone was friendly, and it was true southern food. The sweet, spicy love chicken and their fried chicken were both quite good. It surprised me since I love the breading on fried chicken and this does not have any. We had fries and onion rings. Those were standard unless you put some... More

Decided to try a new chicken spot today & ended up at Uncle Lou's. Ordered the 3 pc Home style Chicken Tenders w/fried okra. Loved the fried okra & biscuit, chicken was just ok for me, not like all of the rave I've heard about. Customer service was good & my food was served quickly, which were both pluses. Can... More

We were just in Memphis for the Liberty Bowl game, and after reading so many great reviews on TripAdvisor, I knew we had to go! Between the three of us, we got the 12 piece family meal, which came with 6 delicious biscuits and 4 sides. The lady at the counter convinced us to go half homestyle, half mild, and... More
