This spot is not somthing that most would wander in on. Hole in the wall but excellent. Make sure to bring the baby wipes. You'll be messy after eating here.

The place is a hole in the wall but I dare you to walk past and not want to go in! And the food lives up to the aromas. Wear old clothes (you have to be messy to enjoy it) and have the ribs-although everything is good.

Ate there yesterday. We wanted to try the BBQ and really liked it the only thing I didn't like was that they don't serve seconds on soda and even coffee - I thought that was a little tight! But Good BBQ and they have a cheap lunch special

We had the messiest/best dinner at Little Lou's. The sauce they use on their ribs is indescribable. I think most of the sauce ended up on my husbands face. If you want good ribs, go to Little Lou's!

My wife and I was lucky enough to have stumbled across and ultimately dined out at Little Lou's a few days ago. Let me tell ya, the BBQ beef ribs were definitely amongst the best in the area. Like the other reviewer mentioned, there are few BBQ places that serves beef ribs, let alone good beef ribs. They only had two people working that day (cook and cashier / waitress), but the service wasn't bad. We just so happend to have dropped in during one of their all you can eat spare ribs days / time (Wed - Fri from 4PM to closing). I had the ribs and my wife had a blackberry cobbler since she wasn't too hungry. Seeing that my wife hadn't had the chance to taste the ribs, the waitress offered us another plate so I could share the all you can eat ribs with her. From then on, I couln't stop her from grabbing one rib after another. Needless to say, we'll be coming back for more.

Pros: Near San Jose

Cons: Bad food!

I usually rely on City Search for unbiased reviews and recommendations, but forget to check on Lou's before hand. Instead I followed the well placed ads and accolades listed in the WAVE and METRO weeklies. Good advertising...bad advice. I should have driven to Uncle Frank's in Mountain View for some real BBQ or Memphis Minnie's in SF. The following reviews sum up Lou's in a nutshell so no need to reiterate here.

Pros: You have choices

Cons: Once you pay...your choices are gone

This place is only so-so. If you live in LG and want to pick up a quick weeknight meal for the family that is not pizza, it's a good bet.

It didn't seem like the meat was grilled or bbq'd....seemed like it was boiled than had sauce poured over it. Not too exciting I'm afraid....

I agree with drbowtie69, the ribs here are not BBQ. While the meat is soft, there is no flavor. The meat is not flavored by smoking or grilling and they apparently don't flavor it with a rub either. The sauce barely covers up the tastlessness. Avoid this expereince.

So here I am, The LG Weekly raving about this great BBQ place and Bay Area Dining (KRON) rated this place in the higher areas also. As a backyard BBQ'er, I have grilled some off the hook ribs (pork rules!) and chicken too.....slooooow cooked on mesq/oak combo. And while in Texas and Tenn, I've had some of the best bone sucking, finger lickin sauce too. What these reviewers failed to mention about this place, the BBQ in these ribs is only in the sauce. I guess I can parboil, dry in the oven and drizzle a bit of sauce over them and call it BBQ?....... WRONG. I would say, save your money on the ribs and maybe try something else, the chicken my wife had looked ok? Sorry Lou, just calling it like it is.

Pros: Slow but Great servic, good prices, good size portions

Cons: BBQ ribs lack grill, cold outside, heaters, need fries

It's rare to find a bbq place that has beef ribs and this one makes them terrifically. The sauce is excellent and the potato salad and baked beans were very good. I'm going to eat there as often as possible!! I've travelled in the south a lot and know good bbq and this is it! Blvd Coffee next door is great, too.

Little Lou's has a variety of menu items including whole bar b qued chicken, beef brisket, tri-tip steak, and of course ribs. The meat is always tender and the side dishes are generous in portion. The owner is a nice guy and often gets your order out in less than 10 mins. It's a small place, but there is ample seating outside as well. It's located in the same strip mall as Trader Joe's in Los Gatos.

I dined at Little Lou's and had the Tri Tip Steak meal and it was very good. In addition, the coleslaw is the best! This is the second time I have dined in and have enjoyed both meals. The place is simple, the staff is nice and the food is great! Good value. Hard to find from street, but in the same area as Trader Joes.
