I will be kind in saying that this restaurant is on the other side of the tracks. BUT the food was very good overall. Had the mixed chicken, not all of it had the sweet spicy love sauce which kinda reminded me of a hot...More

Last year while in Memphis we ate here for the first time and fell in love... so naturally it was our first stop when we arrived in Memphis this year. Nothing has changed. The dipped sweet spicy love chicken is just addicting. The staff is...More

The chicken was perfect. Freshly cooked, moist and tender, nice crunch on the skin, and the sauce was very, very special; unique. The contrast between the sweet and tangy sauce and the salty, savory chicken is great. The rest of the experience was average but...More

Amazing fried chicken. Get there early gets crowded. Anything on the menu is good and take some sauce or rub to go. It's that good.

This is probably the best chicken that I had in Memphis. It was so good. I would definitely recommended. The burgers were good too.

You might not give this place a second look-but once inside, you'll know this place is different. "Uncle Lou" personally sees that his customers are happy-maybe even singing to some old Rock n Roll music...but his fried chicken is THE BEST we've ever tasted!! Oh!...More

This is probably the worst experience I've ever had in a restaurant. I was drawn here because of the good reviews and the fact that it was featured on television. They really dragged the bottom of the barrel for this one. Everyone working here seems...More
