Life’s Flavors: Lou’s Country Food By Allison Libby-Thesing Of The Oak’s Bed & Breakfast

When you head West on Hwy 11/Wild Cat Way in Sulphur Springs, just behind Lowe’s you can find Lou’sCountry Food. Lou’s food truck has been operating for the last four years, while on her day’s off from her first job. When you see her window open be sure to stop by for some good home-cooked Southern food. Her specialty is chicken fried steak, that she hand batters, and buys locally. She makes all her own food and loves to cook for others. Her love of cooking is what brings her to her food truck on her day’s off. In a perfect world she would cook for those around her every day.

Before Lou opened her food truck, she and her father had a restaurant in Como called Butch and Lou’s; that she closed shortly after his passing. Now you can find her cooking up all your country favorites inSulphur Springs. Her hours are not always the same since she works her food truck on her days off. Be sure to give her a call 903-335-6334 to place your order or to see if she is open. When she is open, she will be serving up food from 10 a.m. to 7 p. m. or 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Lou’s takes cash or card when you order.

You can find all your home cooked favorites on Lou’s menu. From sandwiches, burgers, and full meals as well as tasty sides to complement all her main choices. A hot item are the orders of Pittsburgh hot links, get them while they last. Of course, her plate of the day goes quickly as well. A crowd favorite is Chicken fried steak, which she was out of, when we stopped by, so we ordered the next best thing, Chicken fried chicken.

Since burgers are always a crowd favorite, we ordered a cheeseburger with everything on it. Boy it did not disappoint. One more boys said it even matched In-and-Out for flavor and substance. The cheeseburger we ordered came with everything a good burger should have, lettuce, onions, and tomatoes. Plus, mustard since everyone needs a little bit of condiments on their burger.

The Chicken Fried Chicken was cooked just right and battered to perfection. The chicken was moist, and the portion size was filling. My seventeen year old, was full by the end of his meal, now that’s saying something. His plate came with two sides, and he selected fried okra and French fries. You can evens elect a roll or corn bread to go with your plate. Of course, don’t forget the gravy.

We also ordered a BLT, after all who does not love bacon. Both kids said that was probably the best thing we ordered. The sandwich was loaded up with plenty of bacon, and just the right amount of lettuce and tomato, to complement each other well. The bacon was nice, thick, and crispy. The perfect sandwich for lunch or dinner.

If you are ever in Sulphur Springs and Lou’s is open, be sure to stop by and order any of the great items on her menu. We do not feel like you will be disappointed at all by her offerings, portion sizes or taste.Thanks, Lou, for the great food.
