Sweet Lou's

Map & Directions 851 N.W. 85th St.
Seattle, WA 98117


Seattle Weekly's Description

First it was a Laundromat. Then it was the Sundown Tavern. Now this Greenwood fixture's been spiffed up and remodeled into Sweet Lou's, complete with a clever slogan - "Lou's Yourself" - and an entire wall devoted to its most famous namesakes (Gehrig, Rawls, Reed). The kitchen pumps out seriously scrumptious beef brisket and the slider portions are so generous that what's usually a snack of three White Castle clones can easily serve as dinner. Overall, Sweet Lou's is a warm and welcoming neighborhood spot, not least because of bartendress Susan Hailey, who's so nice she'd make your favorite aunt look like Mussolini.

    It's a sad day... Kids no longer allowed. 21+ only, as of yesterday. Love this place though. Amazing food, no matter what you get.
