Me and wifey tried the one off huebner and Floyd curl. It was awful. Bean were COLD! They had some hard pancakes and "fake" tortillas. Depending on what your dad likes the migas were good

my wife went to Luby's for dinner and hated it. I am to scared to go. I think it is going to be just like Golden Corral, which I hate.

Golden Corral or what my daughter calls Hicksville Cafe is probably better.

Golden Corral would be a lot better if they didnt feel that everything needed 400 tons of salt.

Luby's has gone downhill. The one on north end of downtown and the one in medical center are a little better, but I hardly ever go. I don't like Golden Corral much either.

Luby's used to have a roast turkey, roast beef and ham for carving. The ones near me ditched that for a bunch of gooey entrees. The pan grilled tilipia is passable. They do hose you for the ice tea!

I also don't need a waiter or waitress to come give me a straw or butter. The reason to have a cafeteria is to avoid tipping folks. No more iced tea lady - you have to wait till a kid wanders over.

How the mighty have fallen. Of course, management problems killed them and themselves, sadly.

Golden Coral - pictures of nice steaks and you get some old shoe looking thing. The ribs were hysterical - looked like dismembered vampire left in the sun - by that I mean a pile of goo with random bones. Looked like the ribs were parboiled to destruction, is my guess.

relatives we were visiting in AZ wanted to treat us to a nice dinner out...at Luby's. Of course, dinner was at 4 in the afternoon and my mom and I were easily the youngest people in the restaurant by at least 30 years. Workers were equivalant to the Seinfeld soup Nazi, barking at us and pushing us through that horrendous human assembly line. Needless to say I only remember laughing hysterically all through dinner at my first and last Luby's experience...can't recall the food at all.

Luby's is now a joke. They have turned their backs on their most loyal clientele; the senior citizens. The food is mediocre, outrageously expensive, and they expect you to tip their help IN A CAFETERIA!!!!!

I miss the days of Wyatt's, Mammys, Picadilly, and Luby's when they had good food at reasonable prices. I used to hit Luby's at least twice a month. The last time I went about two years ago with my grandson, our bill was over $20, and they expected a tip for filling the tinny icrd tea glasses. NEVER AGAIN.
