Description: Uncle Lui’s offers family-style dining that crisscrosses Europe. German and Hungarian dishes like goulash and schnitzel are on the menu, as are items like roast duck, chowders and homemade apple strudel. The friendly service adds to the appeal, as do the wallet-friendly prices.

Uncle Lui's is amazing!!! Everyone needs to try this neighborhood gem! This is a very casual european style diner. The portion sizes are enough to feed 3 people - talk about bang for your buck!!
The lamb chops and lamb shank are my favorite! They always have a great soup of the day and the escargot appetizer is amazing and different then any I'd had before!
This is a must try!

After you are seated, they bring out complimentary potato pancakes & bread. The food is homemade. Service is quick and servers are pleasant. I watched as customers left. Not one person, (while I was there) went out without a "doggie bag". Portions are huge.

Dining at Lui's brought back memories of my Hungarian grandmother. Not quite up to her level of cooking but good all the same. Had the Chicken Paprikash and my wife had the Veal Goulash each with spaetzle (nukele (sp)). Creamed spinach was disappointing. Very large portions, very friendly service and we were not jammed in. Restaurant was a little run down but clean and had the feel of old NY or a small European village restaurant with not quite the same ambiance. Patrons walking out freely commented how good the place was and were each carrying doggie bags as a testimony to the large portions. Definitely an older crowd but not noisy. Go back in time and revive some good wholesome memories.

Typical Hungarian restaurant. You think you're gonna get great food, but are disappointed in the end. Although dessert will put a smile back on your face.

Located in a run-down shopping plaza what Uncle Lui's lacks in atmosphere they certainly make up in quantity and quality of food at extremely reasonable prices. The place is a bit crowded, but I have been in more upscale resturants that have been more crowded than Uncle Lui's. This is a family run business and service is very good. If the prior reviewers glass remained unfilled, it's because he didn't request a refill. There are only 3 people serving and they do hustle. I found all you need to do is ask and it will be done. The old saying "try it, you'll like it" certainly applies here.
