I think it closed a couple of weeks ago. The one off 290, east of 35, is the only one left that I know of.

Could be wrong, but I believe the one on Slaughter near S 1st is still around.

East Anderson and Slaughter if this is current.   Pretty sure it is.

We took our kids to Luby’s for the first time ever earlier this week. They fucking loved being able to go through the line and pick out their own food. They were hating (along with my wife) beforehand but I think I converted them. My oldest didn’t even want to try the chess pie until I made her. Wife said she wished they served wine. Our entire meal was 26 fucking dollars lol.

How is that possible. Luby’s is great but it ain’t cheap. Did y’all split one plate, one slice of pie and get 4 drinks? That would probably be over $26.

Evidently Wednesdays are kids eat free. We had no idea until we paid the check. One dessert, water for drinks.

Good to know. Will have to try that one on slaughter. Been meaning to

Also good to know that I should avoid Luby’s on Wednesdays.  We have a little Italian place that does kids free on Thursdays, and I would rather pay double someplace else than deal with the absolute shitshow that is kids eat free night.  It draws out the worst parents, and the kids behave accordingly.

The boy got braces today and needs to eat soft food for a day or so, he wanted Luby’s max and cheese. Didn’t feel like driving there so I found the recipe online.
Pretty damn spot on.

I'm impressed that you had shredded American cheese on hand, unless you just didn't want to drive to Luby's and HEB was open.

Did you use powdered milk?

That is what the Luby's recipe calls for.

The local small town paper had a front page story that our Luby's is finally closing down within the next 30 days.  It didn't make the cut on the list awhile back of the ones that were bought out so I figured this was coming but it still sucks.

Found myself on Midway Rd in Dallas so I thought I'd give it a shot. Haven't been to this location in years and wow let me tell ya, I think Luby's really is on its final leg. This particular location used to be pretty upscale and bright on the inside. Not anymore. Very dark dining area with almost no lighting minus the afternoon sun. They replaced the golden walls with a dark blue and brown theme. It didn't feel like the Luby's I grew up with.

Food was still good.
