“Lobster Taco”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Ordered the lobster taco (about $14) with cilantro sauce. It was good but not spectacular. The service was excellent and the decor of the restaurant was outstanding.

We got a seat by the window and watched the foot traffic go by. Food was good as was the service and price was reasonable.

“Great Margaritas”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

Found our way to Lula for after dinner drinks. Fun decorations ... great waitress and excellent margaritas. Drinks were strong, but not overpowering ... loved the Cadillac and jalapeno choices.

“Lively, loud, place. ”
Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

Food was good, reasonably priced. Margarita prices high for a small glass and not very good. Salsa a tad spicy but tasty. Chips served hot. Can't beat that. Nice place.
