We had an early dinner here last night and enjoyed it. The quaint old style of the building and neighborhood is attractive. I had the baked chicken with broccoli and a squash zucchini mix that was excellent! I don't typically recommend Luby's but this location was better.

An old standby. I've been eating at Lubys 50 years, all over the state. Consistently good, and fresh. Nice helpings, friendly staff. The early LuAnn platter is a real bargain. Homemade desserts. Just a good place to eat with a big selection of food.

I personally love their Mexican corn bread. Kids or grandkids... More

I stopped at the Luby’s in DeSoto, TX on N. Beckley Rd. on Saturday morning. The special was AYCE breakfast for $6.49 which is a good price. The food was standard for being on a steam table for who knows how long. You can get full and there was a good selection. Plenty to eat but not real fresh. The... More

This Luby's was located right across the street from where I was staying. Service was slow, but the employees were very apologetic. They ensured that even service was slow that your food was correct. My food was hot and delicious.

The food was not good. The prices seem to have gone up the last time I visited. Won't return. Not a good experience.
