Lou’s Comfort Food & Cocktails


Flamin’ Hot

Buttermilk bathed chicken, lovingly rolled in batter then fried up crisp. Served naked or prepped to set your lips afire.  Enjoy everyday, but don’t miss our special on Tuesday nights!


Mighty Brunch

Warm, sugar-dusted beignets, melty omelets, savory benedicts, buttery pancakes, and fried chicken and waffles and all sorts of the wonderfulness that weekend mornings were meant for.


Wet Your Whistle

Eighteen taps pour the finest craft beers, house cocktails, and foamy toddy. From classic cocktails to kid creations, to wine and spirited happy hours (double happy hours, even!).


Brunch & Beer

Each month – for one weekend – a Colorado brewery joins us for a special, 3-course beer brunch for only $30/person.

Join us May 16th or 17th for brunch with Great Divide Brewing Co.

In the fifties, people pulled up to the window at Lou’s and ordered a big fat burger meant to be enjoyed in the comfort of a car. The Lou’s Food Bar of today clings to that notion of comfort food–but not so much in a car. We added games to make you linger, a hefty assortment of drinks, and a bunch of other darn good food and we say “Welcome!” Welcome to our happy, loud, family-centered, north-side eatery. Check out our long and inviting bar and its tasty offerings. Test your heat tolerance over flaming Nashville style fried chicken.

Lou’s is one of the Bonanno Concepts – part of Chef Frank Bonanno’s conspiracy to shower Denver with fabulous service, great comfort foods and delicious, thirst quenching cocktails.
