Good & Plenty

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!!!

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. I missed hanging out at the counter and talking w/ Jody but I... 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.
