What a pleasant meal. Lou La Bonte's is located along a frontage road of I-80 in Auburn, California. It's a cool roadside tavern and dining room. It looks like it's been there 50 years. It has brilliantly lit neon signs beckoning diners to stop in. The place is a near perfect museum of a fine dining out from the 1950's. The place is crazy cat cool and the bar was hopping on a Friday night late roadside dinner.
I was in a random mood and asked the waitress to give me her favorite entree that didn't have seafood. She recommended the Wild Mushroom Ravioli in Marsala Cream Sauce with chicken. It was amazing. I also had the French Onion soup which was very good. I think I will try this place again when in Auburn.
Came in with my daughter and best friend for his birthday. I was skeptical because the restaurant looked very old and outdated (it is almost 60 years old) but I was very surprised that the whole meal was so yummy, best food I have eaten in years, I even had bites off the others plates at the table. I will be back. I wish they had more revenue so the could give the place a face-lift, but in the mean time I will keep going back for the tasty food.
We came in here to grab a bite to eat. We had some finger foods and cocktails...food was good
We where celebrating and wanted to treat ourselves to a nice dinner. The ribs where great! They where very juicy and meaty. The service was Fantastic. Everyone there made sure we where well taken care of. I eat here often and will continue. No complaints here. Well worth checking it out. Thanks
I LOVE the Monte Cristo. They cut it in half and grill all 5 sides then cover it with powered sugar. I try to make it a point to catch lunch there if I am in the area.
Lou La Bonte's is an excellent place for a nice cool martini and a 8 oz cut of prime rib. The 8 oz. cut of prime rib (just the right size) is nicely priced for $14.95 and includes garlic mashed potatoes, sauteed vegtables, and, of course, creamed horseradish sauce. Just the thing for a hungry traveler who doesn't want anything fancy or exotic.
Two big screens showing sports, big steaks, tasty food. There's even a crime role-play event every Friday night, which we didn't get to see, though.
Was driving through the area early on a Saturday evening with my two young teenage nieces and remembered Lou Labonte's from many years ago when I lived in the area. the burgers we each had were incredible! The whiskey peppercorn sauce was addictive! The garlic mushroom burger was a hit, as well as the low carb for the niece watching her figure. Fries were also great, and the salad on the low carb plate was great. Overall, we were happy with our delicious burgers, and the girls enjoyed the somewhat retro atmosphere. We stayed and talked for a long time, but didn't feel rushed by the staff. It was a fun trip down memory lane, and I'm glad we stopped for dinner.
I've only been to Lou La Bonte's for banquet gatherings/party's in their banquet room catered by them, I've never eaten in their dining room, but I certainly would. The Prime rib was amazing simply said, seasoned pefectly and cooked just right (I prefer an end cut myself). Their chicken was also done well, the wild mushroom ravioli was nice. I also loved the potatoes, steamed vegetables, and the mixed green salad was perfectly dressed even though I thought at first sight it was going to be a little heavy it wasn't at all.
The food is the star here, and then environment is comfortable, the price is also right on the money.
