A friend who lives in Moberly recommended this small local restaurant. As we are prone to gravitate to small local eateries this sounded like a place worth trying. We were not disappointed. It was evident that this was a gathering place for locals. Some would classify it as a dive bar by appearance. Lula's holds maybe fifty people max. When... More

Got there at 430 p.m. on a Thursday before they got busy. They serve Coke products in a bottle so there are no free refills. They have a limited menu but what they have is very good. They also have a bar with a good selection of alcohol and beer to choose from. I had the half rack of ribs... More

Great place to have dinner and drinks. Very casual place with unique atmosphere. You may wonder how it meets code enforcement but I assume they eat there too. Food is great and service can also be great if you get Becky as your waitress but it's a roll of the dice on the others. I prefer the steak or Cajun... More

Best food in town! Burgers and fries are fantastic. Have never had a bad meal. Great family friendly "hometown local bar"!

This is a very good place to eat. Has a very simple menu of hamburger, steaks, shrimp,and pork chops. You get large portions of food. Be prepared to wait.....it's worth it. Enjoy it with a beer and good company.

We made sure that we got there before the 4pm & folks were already hanging out waiting for them to open. We both had the ribeye special. My wife had the soup of the day (bowl not a small cup), & a huge bake potato. I had a salad & fries. The steaks (come with toasted bread) were done perfect... More

The best steak in a 100 mile radius. Thick, juicy, seasoned well, and cooked to a perfect med-rare. Steak sauce would be an insult. Sides are huge, and the cocktails are great. Service is always good, concidering how packed they always are. Definitely worth the wait for a table. Don't pass up this place.

If your hungry, and want large portions of great entrees, Lula's is a stop worth making. The pork chops are the very best.

One particular server was very rude when I asked how long the wait was (usually an hour wait because it is a tiny hole in the wall joint), but she yelled at me when I questioned the hour wait because I wanted to ensure I heard her. So we left... I had eaten there previously and had good service though.... More

Crowded and loud, just the way a neighborhood place should be. Some of the best servers I have ever encountered. The shrimp is a good as you find anywhere. The rib eye steak is marinated and a little on the thin side for me. Often have non marinated t- bones that are excellent. Add the huge baked potato or the... More
