The Ultimate Big Breakfast

There is a reason why this place always wins Worcester magazine's Best Breakfast award. You have never had home fries this good, or omelettes this good, or creative waffles this good.

best breakfast in town, clean, pleasant and too much to eat and the wait staff is fantastic. I have eaten there many times and each time is better than the last.

great diner food, but even funnier wait staff. be prepared to wait if you are going on busy hours (weekend breakfast, week day lunch) but it's worth the wait. the specials are the way to go at Lou Roc's - can't miss food with great prices.

Food is delicious with HUGE portions. The homemade hash is the best. Have never had a bad meal. Always a wait for breakfast on the weekends but well worth the wait.

We got to the diner on Sunday morning @ 9 & there was a line. Most of the people on the line or arriving, knew the system but enough didn't. We went in to leave our name but you can't leave your name. Instead you just stand in line in the order you arrive. It doesn't seem to be a... More

You haven't had breakfast until you've had one at Lou Roc's Diner. A fun & friendly place. Sometimes there's a line waiting to get in but it usually moves along pretty quickly. Lunch is also served & is as hearty & memorable as their famous breakfast dishes.

Went here on a Saturday morning around 10 and it was absolutely packed, which I thought would be a good indication of the food quality. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. The portions are rather small when compared to other Worcester area diners and the prices are a tad higher. The food was just okay, nothing too special but it was not... More

Lou Roc's diner is a busy place on a Sunday morning. There is often a waiting line snaking both inside and out. You might have to wait a half hour, if you choose to go at prime time on Saturday or Sunday morning (9-11), but you won't be sorry. The line moves relatively quickly because staff knows how to move... More

Nobody ever leaves here hungry! They offer specials from Monday through Friday, and I have never been able to finish either breakfast or lunch. Most people leave with

I LOOOVE this place! Whenever we visit my husband's family in MA, I make sure we make a stop here for breakfast at least one of the days we are there. I can't believe how much food you get for so little! I love the cinnamon bread, hash browns, omelets, EVERYTHING!! I wish we had diners in Chicago like this!!!
