Made a point to visit Lulu's after seeing a report on television regarding the 3 pound cinnamon rolls. This is an old diner and very small. Very run down inside and outside and in desperate need of deep cleaning every which way you look. The...More

My husband and I came here to try the giant cinnamon roll but after seeing them in person we decided it would be better to bring the whole family if that's what we were getting. The food we got instead was absolutely delicious. This place...More
