Best choice in North Idaho for gluten free food! They are 100% gluten free because they don't cook or bake anything with gluten. Most of the food that I have tried is just as good as anything "normal" that does contain gluten. The owner puts her heart and soul into her food, and it definitely shows. Next time you're in Sandpoint, whether it for Lake Pend Oreille or Schweitzer, you HAVE to give this place a try!

Reviews:
We were visiting from Los Angeles (have friends in Spirit Lake), and found Lou's through reviews. Our experience was outstanding. Great waitresses that were very attentive, and the food was all great. We had onion rings and calimari for appetizers (top notch) and then burgers and sandwiches (recommend Salmon BLT!) and soup (tomato basil was very good). Everybody got exactly what they asked for, drinks were refilled regularly and everybody left very full. Good stuff!
Great people, awesome food and spectacular drinks!
My friend and I were driving through Ponderay from a ski trip and decided to stay at the Holiday Inn Express next to Sweet Lou's. Instead of venturing into Sandpoint we decided to walk next door for dinner and what a pleasant surprise! Elizabeth our server was delightful, helpful and delivered our meal with a warm smile :) I was torn about what to order so she recommended the chicken fried steak and even let me taste the horseradish mashed potatoes, which afterwards I happily ordered. I must tell you that was the BEST chicken fried steak with country gravy I've ever had and I'm from Texas!!! It wasn't your typical deep fried salisbury steak, it was a real top sirloin pounded tender, lightly breaded, seasoned and fried to perfection. It practically melted in my mouth. I dreamt of that meal last night, and am now waiting for Sweet Lou's to open for lunch we can go there again before we hit the road! My friend ordered a thick ribeye steak cooked to a juicy medium rare, with spicy slaw and clam chowder. The seasoning complimented the meat so well, adding steak sauce would have been an insult! I would whole heartedly recommend Sweet Lou's to anyone that has the good fortune to come through Ponderay. What a hidden jewel.. Thanks again Elizabeth!!!

I was here in January but forgot to comment. It's late August and we ate here last night. I enjoy this place. People are friendly. The place is clean. Service prompt and attentive. Food is good. Prices reasonable. My taco, tamale, enchilada, rice, and whole beans was basic but I have no complaints. Alcohol is what adds to the bill. Still, it's a popular place.
This place had some great food. This is the first Mexican restaurant to give refried beans and salsa with your chips, and by the way the beans are really good! It's been a long time since I've had shredded chicken that had flavor to it. It was a treat to find this little piece of Mexico in northern Idaho. We will definitely come back again when we are in the area.
Tonight was our first visit there,snd everything was amazing!!! We were greeted right when we came in, and seated right away. The resteraunt was clean, and the atmosphere was great! We were a party of 7,and our waitress got all our orders correct and never wrote down a thing! The food was amazing and very authentic!! It came out quickly, and everyone loved their meals and desserts!!! We will definitely be back the next time we visit Sandpoint from Spokane!! #ChileColorado #CarneAsada #ChickenTequitos #Beans&Rice #SteakFajitas #ChimiChanga #DeepFriedIceCream #Flan #Sopapillas #BESTREFRIEDBEANSEVER #Yumminess

Wow, if I had read the previous reviews I would have missed out on a REALYY great chinese dinner with my family. We ordered take out for 4 adults. It was ready in 15minutes as stated, piping hot and the woman who helped us was kind and gracious. When we got home we had an extra guest, no worries. The portion size of everything was more than the 5 of us could eat. Egg foo Young was excellent. (My husbands fav and he raved) My Kung Poa shrimp was spicy perfect and the ample veggies were done crisp,but not overdone. I also got my favorite hot and sour soup and the variety of mushrooms and balance of veggies again, wonderful. Shrimp fried rice, loaded with shrimp. Everyone raved about the food. I have eaten ALOT OF Chinese in San Fran, NYC, LA, Seattle and this was just as good as it gets. And the prices were reasonable. I would highly recommend this restaurant to any one looking for authentic chinese food served fresh, hot and in a timely manner. This is a gem in Sandpoint. I think if people are polite and kind persons they get better service . Way too often tourists in our town are rude as can be, i suspect others got what they deserved and should probably go back to california and leave the gems to us. I will be back again and again and hope to see the locals there who enjoy a good meal from very nice owners.
Advertises no MSG, sadly at this place that would have been the only good thing here. Almond chicken was batter like chicken with some burnt almonds on too. Pork Chow Mein consists of noodles, starchy gravy, and 4 1/16 inch strips of pork meat. Horrible experience. Never go back.
Our experience at this restaurant this past Saturday reminds me of two important truths - 1) we are blessed (spoiled, even) to live in the SF Bay Area where there is a plethora of incredible Chinese restaurants; and, 2) I should never go to a restaurant out of town without checking Yelp first. I too had the same experience as the other commenters here. You would think with a nice Chinese family running the place the food would be better. This was BY FAR the WORST Chinese food we have ever had in our entire lives. We ordered three chicken dishes (sorry, my family was a bit one-tracked at this seating). The Lemon Chicken was chicken pieces coated in a batter and deep fried, then covered in this orange looking sauce (I thought lemon sauce was yellow)??? It was way too salty and the lemon flavoring did not strike one as lemon! There wasn't even lemons used as a garnish to indicate what it might be. Next, the Sweet & Sour Chicken - eeks, the same chicken as the previous item, but this time coated in a brown sauce. Brown Sweet & Sour sauce? Seriously? It didn't quite resemble in appearance or the taste of S&S at all. (BTW, this was the second restaurant in the upper Idaho area that served this horrid excuse for a S&S sauce). By the way, that's all there was to it - deep fried battered chicken pieces, brown S&S sauce, and that's it! No vegetables at all (carrots, peppers, onions, etc). The final dish broke the straw. We ordered Almond Chicken. Guess what it was? Same deep fried battered pieces of chicken, but this time coated in ... ready for it? ... Coated in chicken gravy! YES! Chicken Gravy!! Where were the almonds? Well, there was some type of shredded (almost granulated) almonds tossed in with flour and something else to give it some base. No veggies! No nothing - just chicken, gravy, and some shredded almond-like topping. Please, northern Idaho residents and visitors - DEMAND better Chinese food from those restaurateurs in your midst. They come from a strong Chinese heritage. They are holding out on you! Yes, I know, bok choy and chinese cabbage are not indigenous crops in Idaho, but these restaurant owners can easily go down to Super 1 or Safeway and get some American equivalent veggies to incorporate in their dishes. My family and I were giggling out of the restaurant to the car (yes, we were discreet) knowing that we had just experienced the worst dining experience (let alone Chinese cuisine experience) of our lives. We enjoyed the warm chocolate chip cookies back at the hotel at least! :-)
