A trip to Dartmouth is not complete without the stop at Lou's Restaurant , where I happily do my time in the line! The oversized portions of comfort food never cease to wow us. It us fun to see the mix of students, profs and families in this small community enjoying time squeezed into the booths and tables with never enough room for all the condiments. No one seems to mind, it is one big happy family, including the amazing wait staff that negotiates the line the sometimes creeps around to block the kitchen! I have not ever had a morsel of their comfort food that was not worth the wait, but dessert is not an option because the meals are huge. Next time maybe i'll do JUST dessert! The cakes and pies look artistic and scrumptious. Enjoy it try it, a trip to Hanover isn't complete until you've been to Lou's. Its a tradition!

At Lou's this month they are having octoberfest specials and I have to say the spatzel was very special! It reminded me of home and was just a fantastic atmosphere. This place is always busy so I've avoided it in the past, but now I know; It is worth the wait.
