We got to Uncle Lou's within an hour before they closed---no problem. The staff, especially Toni, was great. We told her what we were interested in and she figured out our order and made perfect recommendations. Their sweet-hot wings are outstanding. The honey dipped bisquits are to die for and the curupted carrots where a great addition. Thanks Guy for... More

I was made aware of this place via a tv show. I finally got to try it and enjoyed it. The chicken is tasty. I enjoyed both the mild and hot dipped chicken as well as the homestyle (not dipped) chicken. It even ate good cold. I only tried the corrupted carrots as my side and they were good. I... More

Went with my staff during lunch today. They have been raving about this place for the last two days. We stopped in during the lunch rush. It is located in a strip mall in Whitehaven. I guess like a hidden gem. I ordered the 3 piece meal that included a biscuit and a side, which I decided on onion rings.... More

From all the reviews online I was expecting a lot more. I wanted to try a bunch of chicken places in one night so I just got a breast with the spicy sauce and a leg plain. It was nice I didn't have to order sides since that would fill me up too much to go eat at more places.... More

We did not have chicken but we did have burgers and fried bologna and had enough for our dinner that night, lunch the next day and a bedtime snack for the dog. Food was good, price was right, service was good. Would recommend a visit to this place if you are visiting Memphis.

The chicken was good, not the best I have ever gotten from a restaurant but was good. The rest of sides were good as well. The price was right that was for sure. It was also very quick. I would recommend to friends traveling thru, but, don't expect the best tasting fried chicken you have ever had.

Don't let the outside stop you from visiting this restaurant. Located in a strip mall, this fried chicken restaurant was a find. My oldest son loved the fat boy sandwich! My younger son said that the wings were the best he had ever had. I got a mixed meat chicken combo- the chicken was fabulous! The seasonings were great, it... More

We drove, once again almost two hundred and thirty five miles for this chicken. The location is the only thing bad about this place. Just be aware of your surroundings.

I was tired of regular old fried chicken, love it but needed a variation for lunch. Uncle Lou's has on its menu a Sweet Spicy mild or hot style for wings, tenders, or chicken that is out of the ordinary really tasty. Memphis has a lot of variety of fried chicken to offer and so does Uncle Lou's but this... More

This is the best Fried Chicken I have ever tasted. The staff was friendly and we even got to take a picture with Uncle Lou in the flesh! I was very pleased and I will most definitely return to Memphis just for this.
