Lula’s Louisiana Cookhouse was voted Michigan’s Best Fried Chicken in 2016 by M-LIVE; one taste and you’ll know why. Lula’s owner and executive chef John Beilfuss grew up on the creole classics his mother created in her kitchen like jambalaya and gumbo.  He’s put his twist on these classics and many more to create a Louisiana-style menu unlike any other in mid-Michigan.  The cozy atmosphere and the best wait-staff in town set the mood for an unforgettable dining experience.
