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

We went to Uncle Lou's after visiting Graceland the other day-chicken was out of this world good! I could not stop exclaiming how yummy it was with every bite! My husband wanted to visit Memphis for the barbecue but I'm telling you-go for this fried chicken, you will not be disappointed! Bought both their mild and spicy sauces to take... More

We stopped in to Uncle Lou's after seeing Graceland. It was so good. First, Uncle Lou is the best host. He is friendly and personable and made us feel like we've been forever friends. The fried chicken is the best we've ever had. And the fish sandwich, oh my gosh. Be sure and try it. The whole experience was enjoyable.... More

Not standard fried chicken but a sweet and sour style sauce that was very good. Nothing fancy but uncle loud is a winner.
