Food was just great. I had nachos for meal and took a lot home. Jalapeño aioli was superb. Friend had burger and not a crumb left. Very busy with takeout, but staff was very nice even at that.

Stopped at Luke’s for dinner. Gentlemen at hotel said they had a good burger, thats what we were looking for. The place is decorated great. Loved the painting on the wall!! Food was great. Crab cakes and Cajun chicken pasta, both choices were great. Super...friendly staff! Definitely recommend!More

Not the most friendliest restaurant in Abingdon. Tables were dirty. Really good decorated walls. I had the strawberry, bacon salad. I didn't feel as if I got my money worth. Had to ask for refills on drink. I might try it again, I do understand...it's hard to work during these trying times. Every place deserves a second chance.More

I followed the review recommendations and tried the shrimp tacos with homemade chips. It did not disappoint! The shrimp had spicy heat and were cooked to perfection. The taco shell was also homemade, and the sauce complimented all the deliciousness without being overwhelming. Two tacos...were filling with the chips, but the combination of flavors made me wish I ordered three. So good! I appreciated the curbside service during the global pandemic, and the service was excellent!More

The shrimp tacos are amazing! My husband got the Megan salad and it was really good. Our waitress was super nice. Great place!

Luke's is a little unassuming as you drive into their small parking lot, but the food and the service was great. It has a funky, eclectic feel with a small dining room to the left as you enter. I had a Kentucky Hot Brown for...the 1st time in 40 years and it was terrific and the homemade chips were fantastic. My wife liked her blackened chicken salad and the sweet tea was just right. They were playing Christmas music but had no Christmas decorations up, unfortunately. Our waitress was very good and we would certainly return to Luke's if in town again.More

We were impressed with Luke’s! I had the shrimp tacos and my husband had the Luke Burger. We both enjoyed our meal and liked their homemade chips. I would recommend and eat here again. Very affordable and casual!

We had lunch at Luke’s and highly recommend it. I had a cheeseburger and my husband had the shrimp po’boy. Both were very good. The sweet potato waffle fries were the best I’ve ever had. Emma was our server, and she was excellent.
