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

Recently went to this Luby's with a coupon I got for joining their club. The roasted chicken was moist, and the chicken fried steak was very generous along with being hand breaded. The meal was just excellent and for the right price, even without a coupon. Our waitstaff was friendly and took care of our every need.

I went here for lunch and the food was cold, the chopped steak was medium rare, and the sweet tea tasted stale. Need I say more? The meals I have eaten from this location have been disappointing. I'd rather eat at Cheddar's or Golden Corral for the cost of meals here. If the regional manager reads this, please help save... More

Stopped in around 2:00PM for lunch. Ordered liver and onions for my entrée, big mistake! There were no onions! My cousin, who also ordered the liver, and I waited at least 5 minutes for some onions that were just pan fried with no liver. Meanwhile our liver was on a plate waiting for the onions and getting cold. The employees... 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

Food okay and i like the concept... Its and old favorite for years but they need to change the old ambiance and theme. They need to give it a new look!

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

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

This is an older building but you couldn't tell it from their awesome food selection! Great food and the staff is always on the ball.
