“Been There...Done That”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

Charming décor has retained elements of East Europe because of the potato pancakes, corn chowder, red cabbage, creamed spinach. apple strudel on the menu. These touches were a delightful escape from a typical American diner. When the potato pancakes were plopped on the table with tacit resignation and tiny plastic take-out cups of sour cream and apple sauce and later on the creamed spinach came heavy on corn starch and light on spinach we were disappointed. The restaurant seemed run on routine and outsourced supplies with the 'family' ingredient lost in time. Still, if you prefer soft vegetables and ample servings you might like it.

“Uncle Lui's Hungarian Restaurant”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

Ate here with friends. We eat here at least twice a year ( It's an hour from home). Very unassuming restaurant in an out of the way strip mall. Restaurant run by the owner & his family. Real home cooked food. Huge portions ( always take food home). Food is consistently very good. Very reasonably price & wait staff excellent.

“Don't miss this one!”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Great food, fast and efficient service, HUGE portions (expect to have takeout), and very reasonable prices! I had hunter sniezel which was done perfectly. Everything is homemade, from soups to deserts. I can't wait to return to this family run, neighborhood place. I suggest you make reservations because the restaurant is fairly small and people eat at a leisurely pace here. I rated the bar scene as excellent, not because of its bar, but because I did not want to downgrade the place in any way, it is that good.

“Great food, great bargain”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Uncle Lui's is an exceptionally fine restaurant. From the quality of the food to its fine preparation. every visit has been a pleasure. It is quite a trip for us to get there, but we make the trip a number of times a year, every year. I cannot imagine anyone being disappointed. In fact, everyone to whom we have recommended Uncle Lui's, has thanked us profusely for doing so.
