“finger lickin' good!”
Martin opened Uncle Lou’s in April 2001 after having moderate success with two restaurants, Catfish Express in 1986 and Lou Martin’s Turkey Express. Turkey Express booths had become a mainstay at the Mid-South Fair, the Southern Heritage Classic, Liberty Bowl, Memphis in May and University of Memphis home football games, where he sold smoked turkey legs. Martin proceeded to tweak an old family fried chicken recipe, created a honey-flavored glaze for his chicken wings and also began to offer burgers made with sirloin, until Angus beef became available.
Great lunch stop! We had the tenders (fried) in sweet, spicy love with fries, honey biscuits and sweet tea... Delicious!!!
Best place to eat some good tasting chicken. Staff was very friendly and happy to serve you. The place was a little run down but the food was worth it. We had the mild chicken, burger, fat boy sandwich. They were all good !
Make no mistake, this place truly is a "dive"; a hidden gem! The chicken was an incredible blend of sweet and spicy. My husband was put off by the outward appearance, don't make this mistake!
