Fish for breakfast??

I wasn't sure either, but the signature fish omelette was very good, served with a side of home fries! Fish, roasted tomato, spinach, and garlic I'll bet the chicken and waffles are good too. Restaurant is on the corner of Main and 31st Streets.

As a periodic visitor to KC, we have seen Lutfis a few times and decided to stop there for dinner one night. This is basically a soul food restaurant but its primary specialty seems to be fried catfish. They also have items such as chicken wings, meatloaf, and sides include items like red beans and rice, green beans, coleslaw, fries,... More

The Comfort Inn recommend Lufti's, along with Trip Advisor recommendations. Being almost empty at 6:30 pm was our first tip. Then, out of shrimp and with three of the six fountain dispenser with empty signs. We chose blackened catfish (no lemon available); macaroni and cheese..the food was edible, not not even good. Avoid this place.

My two boys and I really enjoyed the catfish, this is kinda a little hole in the wall nothing fancy but the food and the service make up for their shortcomings in decor. We will definitely return.

The parking was not marked, so we thought we were actually parking at an apartment complex. I was afraid to park for fear I may be towed. Once inside, the decor was tired and rundown and ther wasn't much of a selection on the menu.

have eaten at the 38 Main (spacious) and Raytown locations. both have great service...the comeback sandwich is properly named, because it makes you come back again and again...servedon ciabatta bread (a big plus!) with lettuce,onions , tomatoes, tarter sauce on the side-with a choice of one side (many to choose from) ...the sunshine cake is YUMMY especially if you love...
