Tips for Uncle Lou's
Get a gallon of Cool-Aide. You know you want to...
Uncle Lou's has become a Memphis icon for its honey-dipped homestyle chicken infused with Cajun-Creole butter.

It's BYOB so bring it in & they'll toss it in a cup for you.

Truckers! Bobtail friendly if you park next to the car wash but try to come off peak times to ensure there is parking

If you're going for lunch, get there early, because this place gets PACKED. After you try the chicken — with a little Corruption — you'll see why Uncle Lou's has been featured on The Food Network.

If you're a fan of Gus's Fried Chicken, you'll love Uncle Lou's. The fried chicken is as good as Gus's, without the wait. I've also heard that the burgers are great.
- Ken Rogers
Everyone knows about the chicken and the burgers, but you owe it to yourself to get the banana pudding. Make sure you have slow afternoon at work, because you won't be able to do anything else.

Uncle Lou's was featured on Food Network as a must-eat place in Memphis, so it's always packed. Call ahead with your order & get a bottle of sauce to take home.
Awesome chicken & honey bisquits!

Don't be afraid to put a little corruption or sauce run-off into your dipping sauces... Especially for the pickles.
