1:30am? After hours place in SA? Lulu's. We caught them before the bar rush so it wasn't too crowded. As we paid - it began to fill up w/ singing and laughter.
Jeannie waited on us. It was the best service I've ever received there.
Onion rigs, cinnamon roll and avocado burger later - we headed home.
I'm from SA and had never heard of LuLu's until Man vs. Food. We tried to go during the Alamo Bowl and it was way too crowded, so we just bought a cin roll to go. Delicious!! Finally tried again last weekend and it was GREAT!! Worth the wait and we will be back many, many more times. I wouldn't listen to the bad reviews. Try the place for yourself. Our service from Emily was great and the food was AWESOME! Did I mention the price yet? VERY REASONABLE! The Chicken Fried Steak . . . OMG . . . You have to go and try it for yourself.
My wife and I saw this place on Man v Food and were excited about going to a nationally recognized cafe right in our hometown! We were a little put off as soon as we walked in because the place stunk! It smelled like old, nasty, urinal cakes. My chicken fried steak was good and my wife enjoyed her chicken fried chicken as well. The portions were huge and the sides were OK. Overall, the food was OK but not the best I've ever had and in our opinion did not live up to the hype. The service was painfully slow. It took 65 minutes to get our food and once we were done eating, it took another 33 minutes for the lady to clear the plates and bring our check (I have no idea where she disappeared to). All the while the smell of old urinal cakes wafted through the air. The place is not in a nice part of town either and the building has seen better days (plus it smelled). The giant cinnamon roll that we were looking forward to was a bit of a disappointment. Yes, it was big and heavy but it was also hard and dry. My wife and I walked away disappointed and felt like we had been bamboozled by the Man v Food show.
lulus is a Great place to eat.nice atmosphere,I always go eat lunch on weekends.met a nice gentleman,Albert an employee,asked me if i had tried the chicken fried steak,well i did and i loved it! Most of all,restroom and tables were very clean.i will definetly will always will keep comin back!
We stopped by in lulu's for the first time after seeing it on mans vs food. I tried the huge cinnomen bun and also the chicken fried chicken. I think the wait staff was great! The service was pretty quick for it being a full house. The food was hot an fresh. I think our waitress was Catalina, over all it was good southern cooking.
