Rude Manager

We go to Luby's often. I am amazed each time I see the tall manager chew out his staff in front of the customers. The food is ok for a cafeteria. They would do well to visit Cleburne's Cafeteria for awesome good cooking! Prices are high as everything except for the specials and LuAnn Platter... read more

Not all Luby's cafeterias are as good as the one on Mason Road in Katy Texas. The staff and cooks have been there a long time and the quality and service is consistently excellent. This is a great place for a home cooked meal.

have been going to various Luby's in all areas of Texas over the past 30 + years Today was not the typical visit to Luby's , both vegetable sides I ordered were cold. Nothing beats cold fried okra and cold fried cauliflower. The chopped sirloin steak which I have had numerous times was as string as spaghetti noodles, absolutely putrid.... More

We always love Luby's. It is clean, the employees are always nice, and the food is good for the price. Everyone can get just what they want quick, and at a good price. We highly recommend.

Really liked the drive thru jajaja after a long day at work, last thing I wanted was to go to any restaurant. I'm a big Luby´s fan...so I really was very happy. Love the green beans, spinach, broccoli...everything fresh...plus the drive thru lady is so nice, such a joyful person :)

Have talked to one manager by email and phone. No results, will go to Mason road. Problem, 6:30 at night, out of a lot of meats, chicken, etc. so you get your vegetables and have to wait 10 minutes so, of course your vegetables are cold. The kitchen hasn't learned to anticipate when to start cooking to refill line. Talked... More

When a quick meal is what you need, Luby’s Cafeteria is one of the better choices in the Katy, Texas area. Just grab a tray, select what you like, pay the cashier, and then sit down and eat. The large dining area has sufficient space to accommodate and you can be on your way in no time. Luby’s serves up... More

Average food but some can be quite good. Can be very busy during lunch. Tables and condiments can be dirty sometimes.

We went for the breakfast buffet. The food is all served hot and fresh. The server paid a lot of attention to our table, bringing us extra items as needed.

Average Luby's Cafeteria, not as good as some, better than some. Food and service OK, restaurant clean, people friendly. What one would expect from a cafeteria. Not cheap but reasonable price especially on their specials of the day.
