“best breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

i've lived in the area my entire life and some how had never been to Lou Roc's before. So mad for depriving myself of this gem for over 20 years!

definitely in the top breakfast spots in Worcester. I highly recommend the loaded home fries (absolutely smothered in cheese and bacon) as well as the grilled Italian toast. I had enough leftovers for a whole other meal :)

The Diner is cash only but the service is phenomenal

“The quintessential diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

Great food, huge portions, prompt service and a classic diner setting. What more could you ask for? Try the homemade hash and raisin toast.

“Truly average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

Had breakfast here mid-week, and it's obviously quite a popular spot. We didn't have to wait, but there was a line at a a few points during our meal. It's a diner that seems to have a lot of regulars, a large menu, and large portions (bordering on wasteful, in my opinion) for a reasonable price. Our omelets (bacon & cheese and meatball) were good, but nothing special, and the potatoes were in need of seasoning.

“Good food and BIG PORTIONS>”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

On ocassions when we come to worcester ,we like to stop at Lou Rocs. to start our day. Big portions are the rule here. This diner can be very busy at times. and because it s not huge you may have to wait for table or booth. They added on years ago but it still fills up. Its worth the wait. Great breakfast food and fast service. Happy to recommend.
