Stopped by on the Saturday before Pats game and wanted to get a little breakfast in me before the game. This isn't the place for " a little" food. The portions were huge, the price was right and the waitstaff were great!! The breakfast was excellent , definitely worth a try. Just be prepared to wait a few minutes on... More

A family of four ate here for under $50 including tip...and we walked away with a lot of take-out as well. Although it was not on the menu, one of us was able to get fish and chips just by asking. The buffalo chicken wrap was very good, and the 9 oz. Texas burger was very good. Good value and... More

First time diners! Terrific value, big servings, BEST pastrami Reuben I have ever eaten...and if you are a FAN of onion rings, you really gotta go here! Home made hash was good on a a muffin with poached egg and hollandaise sauce. The staff is terrific, bubbly and fun! A cheerful diner. Plan on a packed house but the ladies... More

Visiting family in Worcester. They took us to their favorite place for breakfast, Lou Roc's Diner. Couldn't believe there was a line for seating on a Monday morning at 10:30! That's how popular this place is. It's the opposite of fancy. Really informal, kind of funky. Full of all kinds of people, which was great. Our breakfast of eggs, bacon,... More

Lou Rocks is a dinner where there is a good mix of locals and people who travel a distance to experience it. I decided to stop there for breakfast around noon today, Saturday, with my wife on the way to Gardner to do some occasional chair shopping. When we arrived the parking lot was full which was concerning. I did... More

This is a true "All American" diner. The food is great, the prices are good, the staff are terrific (the waitresses are entertaining and "full of personality") and you'll see that they have a lot of regulars. My favorites are Jodi and Dawn and sitting at the counter to watch the show. Regular specials daily (Thursday's roasted turkey is my... More

We ate breakfast at Lou Roc's and loved it! The back part of the diner is a classic with counter seating and several booths. An add on to the front has small tables. Most of the folks eating there were locals (the waitresses knew all their names...even though we were not locals, our waitress called us "honey"). Food was really... More

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!
