“Great Hole in the Wall Burgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

If this place is still open and you have a chance you need to visit for one of their famous burgers. Original grill in operation for over 50 years serving their famous thin burgers with thin sliced onions smashed into the patties and grilled to perfection!!

This place is famous with the locals and will be full if you visit during regular lunch hours. Arrive early to get a seat in one of the 60's style booths or at the counter with swivel seats.

“Locals call it "Luke Bros"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

This must be the place of the "original slider" cheese burger. But the burgers are great. The resturant is not fancy...just burgers, fries, and sodas. It is not open for dinner. It has strong "lunch crowd".

“Awsome burgers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

Great if you like a greasy, old fashion burger! Not a whole lot of choices and no beer, but a great greasy oniony burger.

“Great Burgers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

I have loved eating at Lucas Brothers for many years. They grill their burgers along with the onions and it give them a unique flavor. The prices for the burgers are very reasonable...however, I feel like they overcharge for french fries. Almost $4 for a large order! Too much! I can overlook the cleanliness (or lack of cleanliness) of the restaurant but it is difficult for me to pay that much for french fries.
