“Difficulties of Success”
Reviewed June 8, 2011

Lou's used to be THE BEST sandwich place in Tulsa. Lines would form out the doors during the lunch hour as Lou made each sandwich behind the counter himself. In the past few years though, Lou has expanded his restaurant to take over the former Oklahoma Spud, and has added a handful of employees. The quality seems to have diminished rapidly now. The place seems dirty, and the sandwiches are inconsistent. In many ways I wish Lou would go back to forcing us to wait in lines for a clean, consistent sandwich.

“Update to previous review”
Reviewed May 7, 2010

The previous review was right on the money -- Lou's food is great, reasonably priced, and he is a great guy. I wanted to add that Lou purchased the Oklahoma Spud business next door and expanded his restaurant, and now he sells the potatoes as well as his sandwiches and salads. It's a great place to eat!

Perfect locally owned sandwich shop. Great sandwiches at a great price. Better than subway any day of the week. Support local business and visit Lou's -

Right next door to the Oklahoma Spud (my grandafthers place), go there instead. but Lou's has really good food. He makes the bread fresh daily and he is a great guy. So if you prefer sandwiches and salads to potatoes...well then go ahead and go there
