Best Breakfast Place!

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.

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!
