My first experience with Lou La Bonte's was for a mystery dinner theater. It was great fun for the interactive cast and patrons. What stood out was the quality of the food. This is not a theater that serves passable food. This is a quality restaurant that occasionally has fun things happening. The old standards of burgers, steaks, and prime rib maintain the Road House feel of the place. If driving Interstate 80 from the Bay area to Reno, look for Lou la Bonte's once you pass the north edge of Auburn. It is a great old road house perfect for a mid-journey stop.
OMG This has been a family fav. since I was about 10. We always stop on our way to and from reno!! The service is alwasy A++. This is the ONLY place I can find a Montecristo my fav. YUM YUM YUM..... Do stop and try!!!
My boyfriend and I stopped here on our way home to Sacramento after a day playing in the snow. It was totally unplanned -- Ikeda's a few doors down was closed.
It turned into a completely romantic dinner sitting right in front of the fire and the fact that we were wearing jeans and sweaters didn't seem to bother anyone. My boyfriend declared the sausage and Portabello mushroom pizza we shared one of the best he'd ever eaten and we ordered an apple pie and creme brule. They could have carmelized the top a little longer, but it was pretty fantastic. My BF's apple pie was delicious!
We had a wonderful time. The wait staff could be a little more welcoming for that extra touch, but they were nice enough. We plan on going back to sit by the fire again, next time to try a full out dinner.
This place has been around awhile and every time I eat there I have a great time. After a wonderful meal of steak and scampi we stayed and sang in the bar. We had a fun night. I will always make Lou La bonte's my stop on my way to Reno the food cannot be beaten and the people are all so very friendly Thanks Lou
Geared a little more towards the older crowd - full bar, good menue great prices on Prime Rib!
We had an appetizer, fried calamari and shrimp with butter, basil cream sauce. For dinner we had Prime Rib, with salad and blue cheese dressing, and Fettucine Alfredo with shrimp. For dessert we had flan. All cooked perfectly. Restaurant has a full bar, and a very nice, and clean atmosphere. They also serve dishes, like pizza that will appeal to the kids. A big plus is they're within walking distance to the hotel (next door).
Lou`s was here before I-80 replaced old highway 40 that leads to Lake Tahoe and beyond. The prime rib, steaks and ribs are the best! Bar snacks are awesome like Blue cheese fries, chicken wings and ribs. It`s easy to get on and off the freeway. I`ll be back!
Prime rib was the special for the night and it certainly was perfectly done. The asparagas was wrapped with bacon and cooked with onions and was very tasty. Great food, we go there whenever we're in the Auburn area.
We are here in Auburn on a tour of gold country - the restaurant next door to our motel was mobbed so we walked to the next restaurant down the street and were delighted with the delicious meal we had at Lou La Bonte's. The prime rib special - smaller portion 8 oz - was more than enough and the horse radish sauce was really perfect. Great veggies, salad and garlic mashed potatoes. Ater four days on the road this place really hit the spot. Cost much less than meals in Sacramento Old Town and the flavor and quality was far better. Staff were personable and professional and made our evening a delight.
One of the best meals I have had in a long time. My husband and I ate here on a Thursday night, The waitress and the buser were excellent. They were very curtious and came to the table several times to make sure we had all that we needed. The steak was cooked to perfection. The food is fresh and delish. The restaurant is clean with a cozy atmosphere.
