Thursday is Turkey Lunch Special Day

Thursday's Turkey and Tuesday's 1/2 Chicken Lunch specials are my favorite. I called in a "to go" order of Turkey (all dark meat request), Mashed Potatoes, Stuffing, Butternut Squash and Cranberry Sauce w/ gravy. Ready as promised in 15 minutes on 4/23. Everything was great; as usual... read more

There's a reason Lou Roc's often has a line out the door: they consistently serve fast, friendly, delicious diner/comfort food. The waitstaff is friendly and knows their stuff--it's the kind of place where friendly flirting and banter go back and forth among the servers and customers. Only tip: they don't have real maple syrup (few restaurants do), so BYO if... More

If you like a hearty breakfast cooked to order, then Lou Roc's Diner is the place to go. Classic New England style diner, very casual, with counter or table seating. You'd better come hungry because the portions are LARGE. The staff is quick with your order and the quality of food is excellent. For me, omelets are my favorite with... More

Lou's is an institution. The perfect place to nurse college hangovers or to take the entire family for enormous portions; cheap. Their homemade hash and raisin bread can only be described as heavenly. Great hometown feel and service.

Get there early- fills up quickly. Very popular place. Parking can be an issue. I've tried most of their breakfast items. Delicious! Waitresses are very attentive and always willing to give you more coffee.

Great breakfast sandwiches, hash browns are given plenty but a little greasy for my taste. Bring cash and enjoy the food

There is a reason why there is always a wait for a table at Lou Rocs! They are, Bar none, the best place in Central Massachusetts for breakfast. Service is excellent. Waitstaff is top notch. Food is well prepared and plentiful . If you leave unsatisfied, it is your own fault!

I am not in that area much but when I drove by I remembered friends saying it is a great place to eat. I was suprised at how big their menu was, it was really difficult to choose if I'd get breakfast or lunch food, then what. I opted for the special, roast turkey dinner, which was a huge portion...

The portion sizes were great! Pancakes were good and cooked long enough for it to not be gooey in the inside! Worth the wait but wouldn't say best of Worcester..
