“Traditional In the Best Sense New England Diner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Always Crowded but well worth it. Generous portions, traditional offerings with a few twists. Prices reasonable and a favorite with the locals. Beware, the lines are ALWAYS there but more fairly fast. If you are in the mood for a good, hearty, diner breakfast, this is the place to go.

“A Hungry Man's Diner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

The parking lot was full and the waiting room was wall to wall people. We arrived at 10:30 on a Presidents Day morning and were not seated until 11:15AM. Seems like everyone else had the same idea. But, once inside a very nice waitress seated us and handed out the menu. It was a standard Diner breakfast, eggs, waffles, pancakes, and omelets in almost any variety one could think of. The atmosphere was that of an old 50's stainless steel diner, but no one was the to enjoy the scenery. All were there to eat. The portions size were huge and the food was delicious. My omelette overhung both sides of the plate. There was enough leftover to take home to use for dinner that night. Overall Lou Roc's is a great place for breakfast and lunch; that is, if you want to fight the crowd. Highly recommend.

Best breakfast in town. Great service. Been around a long time and there is a reason for that. Huge portions quality & good food. You can't go wrong eating here. Well worth any wait you may have. If you like hash they make the best. No negative s from me.

“Hidden gem....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

I was planning to visit Lou Roc Diner for a few weeks, and I finally did today,
it looks like a very clean place, with very friendly staff. The portions are very large, so go HUNGRY, the food is great, the coffee fresh and strong, I'll definitely go back....

“You know the food is good when you can't find a parking space”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

Order anything for breakfast here and you will not be disappointed. Sit at the counter, whatever's available. Lou Roc's is an institution and well deserved. Try eggs, cheese and bacon home fries, and their famous raisin toast. Service is always great.
