The quality of the food not like it was back in the 80's.

As a teenager in the late 80's , the food at Luby's was awesome. Did know that there was one off of South Cooper. The food is okay, but not the quality that I remember. The chicken fried stake, it had more breading than stake, and it was very salty. Some of the veggies have been under the... read more

Luby's used to be a great family cafeteria to order meat and vegetables. Not anymore. The food tastes bland and the heat lamps that are used to keep the food warm don't. The vegetables look wilted and the meats are lukewarm. Luby's has increased their prices over the years, (the Luann is now $8.59), and have done little in the... More

This Luby's is not worth the money. The first thing I noticed when I walked in was there were no pricing menus, other than the salad choices. When I inquired about what exactly a "meal" consisted of, the lady gave me two options, neither of which were clear. Then, once I looked at the receipt, I found we were charged... More

My husband ordered the the liver and onionS and along it came a BIG LONG BLACK HAIR!!! we informed our non-English speaking waitress about... More

We used to be frequent diners at their former location further north on Cooper St. Since they moved this was my first visit and it was sorely disappointing. A large sign greeted us with an apology that remodeling is being done. We were there right after the lunch hour on a weekday and saw not one construction worker or any... More

Let's see, just about everything I could of think of went wrong. I ordered for a large group ahead of time. I ended up with the wrong order, had no choice but to take what I had as people were waiting for it and on my way back to the business driving really slowly, the gravy still managed to spill...

I ate at this Luby's last week and the food was an overall 7 but the service was a 3. As I waited in the buffet line, I had to wait several minutes to be served. There were atleast 6 ladies behind the buffet line, but none felt the need to serve me or my family. I could of used... More

We've eaten at several different Luby's Cafeterias throughout the United States for the past two decades. They have always been consistent with the quality of their food, affordable prices and their friendly and personable staff and this one was no exception. We were surprised and delighted to discover that the checkout lady remembered my brother when he used to live... More
