I went to the Luby's on the NW freeway at 2 pm on Christmas Eve.. The manager was soooooo nice, and helped me get a whole dinner for my... More

Great food, but the servers are not friendly. They act like we are bothering them. The waitress was great. Very helpful.

I go to Houston twice a year. Everytime I go visit Lubby's at least twice in the week before leaving. I love the cafeteria style because I can choose whatever and how much I want. I always vist the one on Greens Rd. It is near my hotel and my meeting places. It is always full for lunch. The food... More

Went there by myself after gym. My children don't like this restaurant. They said old and behind modern cuisine. But they improve a lot in selection. They add Asian cooking. The most important part is I can pick up the dishes I like.

Had lunch ( Luann Platter ), the food and service was good, restaurant was clean. The waitress was attentive and asked often if I needed a refill or anything . My only complaint I have about Luby's is the lack of consistent pricing, you go to one and you can get roast beef on a Luann but go to another... More

Never go here for breakfast. Worst breakfast ever. The pancakes were horrible. The eggs... just awful. Go to, and this is going to sound bad, IHOP or Dennys. Lunch is ok. Not into frozen food.

First visit here and they had a great variety, but some of the food looked a bit dry and old. The liver was a tad cold however the sides were pretty good. The staff and service was good and they were very friendly and helpful.

This is the Luby's we visit most often. Food is generally well-presented, at good warm-hot temperature, utensils & glasses clean, table service good. I say with an asterisk because overall I believe Luby's quality is much lower than it used to be. They don't have enough food line servers and all of the workers seem to be much more pressured...

Not sure why, but my eyes were always bigger then my appetite. Most dishes were ok, most of the time, but occasionally something was off, but a return was never an issue. A good place for any meals and often had specials at a great price. A no miss if your hungry
