There is no place quite like Lou's. The combination of tasty, basic food, a melting pot of individual patrons and the friendly family atmosphere provided by its owners make Lou's the place to go when in Norristown for breakfast or lunch. It will remind you...More

I've been eating here for all of my grown life. One of the must stop places when I come to town. Great sandwiches and in the heart of the East end.

Get past the locale and shop being dated! The food is the holy grail here, and you will leave very satisfied. The buns/rolls for the sandwiches are a treat unto themselves, but when you add your filing SHAZAM! Great service too!

Family owned since 1941. It probably has the same interior. It's one of those places that you walk into and you step back in time. Great service. The steak zep is my favorite but you only need a small because there sandwiches are huge. They...More

Lou's is the best old-school sandwich shop in the county as far as I'm concerned. The zeps (local variation on the hoagie, but on a soft round superb roll) are great. The soups , including famous split pea is tremendous, always leave with a couple...More
