Usually when we try a restaurant that's been overhyped it's a letdown but that wasn't the case with Lou Roc's . We were nearby on a weekday and decided to give it a try - lucky us, we were seated immediately. I love that they even offer a choice of canned or homemade hash! Our breakfast was terrific and it's... More

As others have noted,it's cramped.They could be twice as big.Outstanding value and huge portions.Waitress was very friendly and never let our coffee get cold.You might wait for your food for a bit but if it wasn't so good,nobody else would be there!

Established diner that I finally visited on Monday mid-morning. Very busy with limited seating. I had a 3 egg Veggie omelet w/ homefries. The omelet was over stuffed with veggies & cheese. The helping of homefries was huge. Portions being eaten by other patrons were huge as well. Highly recommend for people that looking for quantity eating without the frills.... More

Although I live 17 miles away, I still eat at Lou-Roc's at least 6 days a week, and usually 7. All the breakfast meals there are great, of course, but also try the lunches! All the seafood meals on Fridays are the best around, the clam chowder is second to none, including the fancy seafood places. I have a huge... More

We eat here once or twice a month. Sometimes there is a bit of a wait to get in but it is worth it. The food is always amazing, especially the Thursday turkey dinner special and Friday fish & chips. Their breakfast is ridiculously good and you will never leave hungry. Try the honey bunches of oats french toast -... More

If you don't like huge portions and great food stay away for Lou Roc's. The morning waitresses are fantastic! You are made to feel right at home. Try the raisin toast and homemade hash.

I have lived in the area for a while but just recently discovered Lou Roc's Diner. So glad I did! The portions are huge! It's the only breakfast place I have been where we had to get to-go containers (we had been warned by some regulars while we were in line). The hash is unbelievable and so is the cinnamon... More

Country breakfast. Huge omelets. All fresh ingredients. No one leaves hungry. Heaping plates. An all-star diner since I was a boy!

i've lived in the area my entire life and some how had never been to Lou Roc's before. So mad for depriving myself of this gem for over 20 years! definitely in the top breakfast spots in Worcester. I highly recommend the loaded home fries (absolutely smothered in cheese and bacon) as well as the grilled Italian toast. I had... More
