This is a no frills place. Order at the counter and they bring it out. By far the best chicken I have had. You must try it. Close to Graceland and the airport. Great job Uncle Lou’s

I stpped by to try the chicken. I ordered the spicy white meat. The sauce was good. They fry the chicken before they dip it. I had the potato salad and the corn nuggets. They were tasty also. I paid $17.00 for two dinners.
