awesome!! we went on saturday before labor day and was seated right away. waitress was very attentive. we had the chicken fried steak. hubby had it with queso and i had gravy. son just had a grilled cheese! it was all good! they had tons of the giant cinnamon rolls, the guy filled up the cart three times while we were there, so they were not running out. great place!!!
saw man vs food we were in the area and had to try it. we had a small wait. place was packed, sat at the counter, service was alittle slow but worth the wait. our waitress jennifer was friendly and the atmosphere was great. ordered the short stack and we shared between the three of us. of course we had to try out the rolls so we took 3 home. one for the house and one for our coworkers. the guys i work with all had a piece some even had thirds and fourths, now they want me to get them some more. if your in the area try it out, just be warned it is a busy place and the wait will be worth it.
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.
I was a little sceptical to come to a place I didn't know much about, especially after reading some of the reviews... I am VERY picky... as well as my 13 yr old daughter... BUT my bf wanted to try it bc of the cinnamon rolls. WELL.. after eating our meals, which were amazing...I got a bacon cheese burger with avocado, and onion rings.. my daughter got the lunch special, chicken fried chicken 2 sides (FOR ONLY $6.99) and my bf got the chicke fried steak with queso on top... OMG there was enough food left over for days!!! I stuffed myself silly ( we all did!!!) this place was amazing... service = great! time to get food = fast.. food= omg, amazing!!! We didnt get to try the cinnamon rolls but i am going to order one online! lol... that i how happy I am that i didnt listen to the reviews... this place is def a place ill always go back to!!!:)
Have a late night craving? Head over to LuLu's where the cooks will serve up something delicious. I love the Chicken Fried Steaks. Sometimes the waitstaff will not give speedy or attentive service but the food is worth the wait in the classic dineresque eatery!
Just chill out, what did you expect when you first saw the place from the outside? if you look at the neighborhood and when you walk inside, it is what it is...San Antonio is an old town a lot of restaurants are the same, it's open 24/7 and a local spot just to grub and eat at a cheap price plain and simple!
I and two of my cousins were just there over Fiesta San Antonio weekend food was great, portions were plentiful and the servers just down to earth and just real people,
I am sure most of the visits from people are from people who follow man vs. food or another food program and look at those hosts?
They are just regular people like us just find a great but cheap place to pig or grub out that's it!
Right on ladies we were the three guys from California that you were talking to...remember...the one you scared the crap out of when you barked at the others for slacking lol!
Had an awesome time ..Great Food, Great Company what else can you ask for!! See ya next year when we return for Fiesta!
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 ve been here 2 times and both times I was impressed with the food. I got the Little Mike s, which is the chicken fried chicken topped with their queso; it was so yummy! Their mashed potatoes are very good as well!
The service is really what makes me want to go back. We had a server named Alan. He was exceptional! He was on top of everything and did it all with a smile and more importantly, he was very professional!
Love this place and will definitely go back. It is the all time comfort food of San Antonio.
