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.
While they may have been of one the 50 things you must do when visiting Texas , according to Southern Living Magazine at one time, It was probably the most disappointing visit to a restuarant in my life time. The waitress was not very attentive even though the restuarant was not very busy. We waited for our food longer then needed and it arrived lukewarm. On several occasions we flagged our waitress down, for not only a refill on our drinks, but our bill, as well. Along with this, the establishment is in the dire need of a thorough cleaning. Much to my wife s resistance we ordered the 3lb Cinnamon Roll. Ater arriving home I warmed the roll as instructed, it was the probably the worst cinnamon roll I have ever eaten. I suggest instead that you buy a loaf of bread and sprinkle powered sugar on top of it. Most likely that would taste better. Finally, if you need to use the restroom, make sure you do before you eat, you may never be the same.
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!!!:)
Stopped by on a Saturday at the recommendation of some friends. It was not what we expected. The place is very unorgainzed and not very clean. We placed our orders which the waitress who took down the order from memory. We requested that the gravy be served on the side and were told that the mashed potatoes would be about 15 minutes. Well about 20-25 minutes later our plates were served with the gravy splattered all over the food. I had ordered the liver and onions and they try to cover the liver with plenty of gavey and raw onion what a disappointment! The mashed potates were boiled potatoes with the skin still on and just big chunks. One of our party ordered the chicken fried steak which was also served with the gravey all over it after also requesting it be put on the side. We also ordered one of their famous cinammon rolls which was just a piece of large dry bread with an over abundant amout of thick sugar frosting which was as heavy and dry. Would never recommend this place in its current condition. The staff though were very nice.
My boyfriend and I stopped by here after a night on the town (approx. 1:30 am). We sat at the bar and placed our orders to go. I ordered the hamburger steak and he got the chicken fried steaks (yeah, plural). The service was great. Very friendly people. We also ordered extra white and brown gravy and they were happy to oblige. We got our food within five minutes of ordering it and took it back to our hotel which was just around the block. We were pleasantly surprised with the amount of food we got for the price. The hamburger steak was kind of small, but the sauteed mushrooms and onions made up for the difference and completely filled me up. I didn't even get around to the roll which was the size of a small loaf of bread. The chicken fried steak was also excellent. I had a few bites and it was cooked to perfection. We ordered the mashed potatoes and fried okra as sides and they were both wonderful.
This is NOT a three star restaurant on the Michelin system, however it IS a five star diner when it comes to dives. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, expedient and very patient with our questions about the menu.
We didn't see this restaurant on a TV show so we had no preconceived notions about what to expect, and we were VERY happy with both the service and the food (perhaps it was just our timing).
If you expect a luxury restaurant, you're going to be sorely disappointed, however if you go in expecting a typical diner, you're in for a real treat!
i have always seen the restraunt off the freeway but never stopped, i finaly stopped in to have lunch and dessert, i had the club sandwich and my husband had the chicken fried chicken, we were pleasantly surprised with the food, everything was great and cooked to perfection, ALBERT did an awesome job with our food, thanks so much, we will definitely be regulars now, yumm, yumm
Of course I had to stop by Lulu's after Man vs Food. Goal was the cinnamon roll but decided to have lunch while there. Chicken fried steak, mashed potatos & okra were excellent! BUT was very disappointed with the cinnamon roll-was bland & did not soften up even after heating up. It was basically the dinner roll that was served with my meal only with glaze and a little cinnamon here & there. Wished I would have asked if the cinnamon roll was made out of the same dough as the dinner roll, coulda kept my $8. Overall the service & meal were great just disappointed with the cinnamon roll..
Ive lived in san antonio all my life, and like 1 week ago ,was my frist time eating at lulu's cafe,!
First i like to say the chicken fried steak and the mashpotatoes are the best ,there soo goood!The cinnamon rolls are to die for, there huge,but soo goood! Second i would like to say your staff was very welcoming,
Everybody was so nice, and worked well with eachother, But there was one worker who stood out from them all, he always came and checked on us to make sure everything was okay,he maid my first time experience even better his name was albert,he was so polite,and very hard working!Well keep up the good work, i will be eating at lulu's more often now,and ill be sure to recommend yaull,thanks
lulu's burgers is actually really good. you should try the avocado burger with cheese. Bobbie gave me the best service i hav had in a long time. (even though she was running around like crazy) she made sure i was taken care of.
