Luby's is my favorite cafeteria style restuarnats. I really like to get the special half-portion meal. Get an entree and two vegetable sides. Goes pretty fast and makes it a good place for lunch.

Food still good, like the choices. Desserts are very tempting. Good memories from when I was a kid. Like their fish, salads and mac and cheese.

We go to Luby's for lunch once or twice a month. It has been traditionally very busy for lunch, with pretty long lines (that luckily move along quickly). This is the classic cafeteria-style dining. You grab a tray, and select your salads, entrees, sides, desserts, drinks, etc. The food always seems fresh and is tasty! Excellent varieties of everything. Mostly... More

This is where I go when I'm too tired and hungry to cook. The food is fresh and well prepared. Excellent selection of salads, sides, entrees and desserts. Nice, clean setting. Never disappointing.

Best of the local cafeterias. Very reasonably priced food. Elderly clientele dominates but many younger families also eat here. Excellent fish and cooked vegetables. Good place!

Every time I go to Texas, I make sure to have at least one meal at what has become my favorite cafeteria. Luby's is always clean; the food is exquisite; the service is tops (a waiter went to the next door restaurant to get a dipping sauce I requested!). You don't want to leave Texas without a meal at Luby's

This is an amazing chain of cafeterias. I cannot vouch for all of them, but the one in South Austin on Olfort street is simply excellent. They have a daily all you can eat buffet (which they serve) for less than $9 + drinks. For the two of us the total bill including tip came to about $25. The choices... More

The food was Lubys so very delicious. Weekday lunch specials are ENTREE sized and $3 ! Amazing. Houston and Katy locations do not do this. Monday is hamburger steaks, Tues liver and onions and Wed chicken fried steak. I had enough for two days both times I went. I tried the pan fried cabbage (YUM!) and cooked okra (pretty good)...

Clean surroundings with a relaxed atmosphere Luby's is a great place to try all kinds of food. I liked the canteen style with servers bringing the extra requirements. I hate it when you go to self serve and everyone has been messing with the food, it puts you off. There were plenty of salads and food for those wanting to... More
