Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband and I were looking for a quick, good, local non-fast-food chain meal before heading back home to PA. Uncle Lou’s Fried Chicken popped up. The service was delightful, from us opening the door to the establishment. The only way I can express my thoughts on their meal is that it was so good, it was a way of telling us don’t forget us here In Memphis. We ordered the 6-piece chicken tenderloins in their Corruption Seasoning sauce, along with 3 biscuits, which were warm and glazed so nicely. We also got 2 sides (mac and cheese and fries). Their homemade sweet tea is absolutely refreshing. The meal was slamming.

The chicken was good and didn't have a lot of breading or coating. The price was very reasonable. Don't miss the biscuits. You won't be sorry.

The food here was great. I have never eaten at this establishment and I was very pleased. The person who took our order was friendly and explained the different food items to us. I will go back again.

Very tasty hot chicken . Had to visit another Triple D restaurant as we visited Graceland. I give them credit. They advertise it more than and other Triple D restaurant we have been to. I really did not want to spend any more time in Memphis than needed because of the crime rate but felt this was a safe place to visit during the day. It was only 6 minutes from Graceland. Only gave 4 stars because you need to have the young children just hanging out in the restaurant find another place to go. This is not a good look.

We wanted to try this Food Network famous place. Located in what felt like a dangerous area. Had one man come in, use the restroom, come our table and ask for a dollar, and leave. Staff were super nice and personable. Gave us a side to try we had not ordered (maybe sympathy about the solicitor). Chicken is not marinated in buttermilk or egg washed, so the fried breaded coating makes the outside a little tough. Sweet Spicy Love sauce was great. We were hoping to have Corruption seasoning on the fries. They were unseasoned, average frozen fries. Green beans and Mac and cheese were great! Overall, I say Gus's fried chicken is better. Sorry, Lou.

I mean how can you go wrong with a great Mom and Pop joint! Sweet and Spicy, yep they nailed it. Outstanding across the board. The chicken is so juicy. Highly recommend. Located in a strip mall, you can miss this when you are in town!

This place is definitely a hole in the wall but so worth it! The chicken is amazing and yet so different than anything you've ever had before. Coming from Nashville and having all kinds of hot chicken around, this chicken was very different -- think spicy but sweet! The Mac and cheese - very different as well, again think sweet honey but cheesy. The biscuits literally melt in your mouth and almost stick to your teeth because they are so sweet and sticky, but to die for! The spicy beans were also so different - white beans but with a sweet relish and spice kick to then - so, so good! Now, if you're looking for a 5 star, super clean, tablecloth joint, this isn't it. Appreciate the heart and soul that goes into the food and overlook the rest! We will definitely be back!

Stopped in after visiting Graceland. Saw this place on food network and it didn't disappoint!! The chicken was fantastic! It was crispy and juicy! We ordered the corrupted carrots and they are addictive! Everything was good and would absolutely stop by next time I pass through!

Best chicken tenders I’ve ever had. You’re not paying for silverware and nice plates at this place. You’re paying for awesome food. Fried carrots are a great idea. Everything was great including the owner. Will definitely be back on my next business trip.

We ordered a chicken meal. We stop on our way thru to Alabama. The biscuits were good, and the sauce on the chicken was really good. We ordered spicy but it was not spicy to our standards (to be fair we use carolina reapers. and habaneros, often while cooking). The bathrooms need attention terribly though. Other than that the staff was nice and the food was fast.

Best food ever! We ordered extra biscuits, they are like crack. Amazing sides, amazing chicken, and great employees. The cookies are insane. Uncle Lou himself talked to us and chatted about where we’re from. (Minnesota). One of the employees gave us some fries with the mild and hot sauces on them so we could try them before we ordered. Excellent all around and I would move here just for this food.

I just had a delightful meal at Lou’s. The chicken was spicy enough to be interesting but not punitive or overpowering. The biscuits were so good. After I finished my main meal, I ordered two more biscuits for “dessert.”

We had already been told not to order wings "homestyle" because that meant no sauce, they would be served dry. We ordered wings, and then asked if we could make the order all flats. Who knew if they cut the drum/wing apart it would become "party wings"?? So we ended up with an order of wings and they were served not cut into pieces, so you had to pull them apart. The sauce has a hint of sweetness and is pretty light. Not in a great area...we ate in, even though we were told to get it to go and eat in a local park out of the area. A large soda was almost $4. Lunch was $33 for wings, a soda, and order of onion rings (which were OK). I went because it was on Food Network, but I don't think I'd be a repeat customer.
