I went here after reading reviews for the chicken fried steak. And the chicken fried steak did not disappoint I would not order the breakfast one ever again because I hate the deep fried hash browns but hey some might like them. The chicken fried steak was yummy and big enough I didn't need the hash browns anyway. The gravy... More

My wife and I had heard about the big cinnamon roll at Lulu's and decided we would give it a try. To say it was BIG is an understatement! You don't expect something that big to taste good but I was proven wrong! The inside was warm and soft while the outside was done without being dry and nasty! There... More

everything is big and delish. MUST get the 3 pound cinnamon roll it can feed an army and soooo good. We went on a Sunday got there at 10:45 and the wait was about 45 min BUT so worth it. They stopped serving breakfast at 11:00.

Outside of the novelty cinnamon roll, the food is pretty good. Their chicken fried steak smothered in queso is huge and a definite must. Their service can be a bit slow during peak hours, so plan on spending some time here.

We came to Lulu's to try the cinnamon roll "as big as your head" but found out they also do a pretty awesome chicken fried steak. The place was crowded and it took a long time to get our food but the staff was nice and the chicken fried steak was tasty. The cinnamon roll is a fun way to... More

My wife was so excited about going here on our vacation. Something about a huge cinnamon roll. Well, we didn't make it far past the door. We went in one morning (one person in the whole restaurant) hoping to get a famous cinnamon roll. When we opened the door, the smell was unbearable. Completely filthy. Like rotten trash and vomit...

Was there for brunch with my wheelchair bound brother and sister. Have never been treated with such disrespect! My brother wanted their famous 3-pound cinnamon roll. The waitress rolled her eyes when we asked for water. The restaurant wasn't all that clean. The waitress Ester is the only staff in the restaurant that even acknowledged we where their and she...

Onion Rings were awesome. Cinnamon Roll was great. Diner not that clean. Waitress waited on us quickly and we took our order to go. I also had mushrooms and the breading was perfect. No skimming in the size either, they were big. Next time I will get the large chicken fried steak

JUST WOW! We had to wait an hour to get into to there, but it was well worth it. Everything you might have heard about this cinnamon bun is true. It tastes sooo good and if you think you can eat one by yourself, well lets just say, it was fun trying! LOL. We did also eat other tfood as... More

We came here for the massive 3-pound cinnamon roll. It is just as huge as you would imagine and its pretty freakin' cheap at around 10 dollars. Now all that aside, the cinnamon roll was just OK. It gets pretty dried out on the edges, which makes sense since thats probably the only way they can bake it through. It's... More
