    The fried chicken with the Sweet Spicy Love sauce was the best! The corruption carrots were delicious. Will go out of my way when in Memphis to go to Uncle Lou's.

    Amazing fried chicken. Get there early gets crowded. Anything on the menu is good and take some sauce or rub to go. It's that good.

    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. Read more

    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.

    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.
