Got breakfast here when my son toured Northeastern. Ordered the 'breakfast with a chick' sandwich that said it was spicy chicken with egg and cheese on a bagel. Turned out to be fatty bits of chicken smothered with (non-spicy) BBQ sauce topped with a fried...More

Lou's is mostly a takeout eatery for the N.E. student crowd. They even accept school meal plan cards. We have only been here once, at lunch time, but our sandwiches were good. That is their specialty, along with burgers and hot dogs. Breakfast menu includes...More

Delicious. TKO sandwich is mouthwatering. Perfect size for a hungry traveler. Fast service for the number of customers. Get an extra sauce on the side for sandwiches and don't forget extra napkins if you're going to grab and go.

Great place to eat. The chicken Lou with extra sauce is a must. The spicy fries are legendary. The breakfast is decent for a quick bite. Any platter you will be fine with here.

We stopped in to grab a quick lunch while visiting local colleges with my HS Junior. We decided to go local and avoid the ubiquitous fast food/quick serve brands and I'm so glad we did. We enjoyed our generous and creative sandwiches and fries, sitting...More

The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but
loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this
home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find
victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical
Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located
within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign
