    We have eaten at Lou Lou’s before and once again it did not disappoint! We all had great meals. My friend had the chicken pasta, my other friend had the trio and Michael had of course the steak! I ordered the meatball sandwich, blue cheese coleslaw and a side salad. I did not eat the bread just the meatballs and they were delicious. The coleslaw was a good combination and I really enjoyed my meal. We shared 2 crème brûlées. Manager always comes to the table to check on you! Good food reasonable prices!

    The food was excellent in quality, but too skimpy in quantity to justify the high menu prices. Specifically, the Jambalaya was very scant in amount for $16. If I hadn't eaten several breadsticks (an order of which was also overpriced at $12), I would have still been quite hungry after my main course. We understand that establishments are in business to make money, but the lack of value will ultimately cause folks to look elsewhere for a nice meal out.

    The hummus appetizer was delicious. The grilled chicken was hard and dry and without flavor. (They could learn a lesson from Chic-Fil-A). The Cajun waffle fries were without flavor, dry, hard. As if they’d come from a bag and a microwave oven. (Again, talk to Chic-Fil-A). I’ve eaten at Lou Lou before and had excellent meals. Not sure what happened last night. The service was very attentive. Perfect. However, she didn’t ask how we liked out food or I would have told her.

    Food quality and selection was very good. The venue was just a simple storefront style restaurant that was simply decorated and very light.

    I’ve been here twice in the last week because it’s so good. Keep trying different things and haven’t had anything but deliciousness.

    Excellent as usual! Went with another couple. We started with the Wild Bills Cajun cheese and breadsticks! The breadsticks were delicious! Cajun cheese was good, but needed a lot more fire! One of our friends got the portabella chicken wrap but without the spicy sauce. It was good, but probably would have been better with sauce. His wife ordered the hot brown & I will be ordering it next time! Lots of yummy cheese and bacon. Hubs got his usual jambalaya and I got the chicken carbonara -both were excellent and had enough for a midnight snack! Lol. Had the creme brulee and banana pudding for dessert & both were very good. Great service
