Can't agree on what to eat?

Dual restaurant concept Luby's/Fuddruckers to open Thursday in Webster.

I thought I would offer this friendly restaurant reminder after talking to Webster officials, who are worried that nearby construction work might block signage and keep people from knowing that the 12,000-square-foot Luby’s/Fuddruckers at Baybrook Shopping Center is opening today (Aug. 14).

Look for a 10:30 a.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony and grand-opening festivities at the eatery on the east side of Interstate 45 between Bay Area Boulevard and Medical Center Boulevard in Webster.

Houston-based Luby’s acquired Fuddruckers in 2010.

The company in 2011 experimented with the combo concept at an existing Houston location, but built the first side-by-side eateries last year in Pearland.

I’ve dined at both restaurants separately over the years, but never have checked out the combo concept.

Some readers in the past have suggested that combining the two restaurants at one spot helps when you’re out with friends and family and no one can agree on what they want.

Do you plan to give it a try?

20-30 years ago, Luby's was one of my favorites. Then it seemed like their prices skyrocketed and their quality diminished. Most regular patrons in my circle felt the same. So I quit going, and haven't been back. I was told a change in ownership had caused the decline.

Anyone out there still going to Luby's? Is it good? I'd enjoy some cafeteria food if it were good and reasonable. Opinions on Luby's?

I stopped at one last year. Food was good but the price was sky high.

The last Luby's I ate at was in College Station, and the food was as lousy as the mess that Cracker Barrel serves and calls food. The prices were on par with a full service restaurant, and the place looked like it had just been cleaned...a couple months earlier.
It closed this past April.
The last time I ate at the one in Conroe it was great, if a bit high.
Go figure...

The Luby's on 61st was once a regular stop for my family, at least once every 2 weeks. We will be happy to see a return, if it fits the usual Luby's model.

Just like the long-gone Wyatt's, Luby's could be relied upon for an easy and quality meal quickly, for those whose day was too full to spend time cooking and cleaning or a lengthy visit to a regular restaurant. I suppose this service is now fulfilled (for those who do not care what kind of dung they ingest) by the infamous "fast-food drive thru's" that plague our communities Coast-to-Coast and infect the world beyond.

Does this mean I can get a Luann Platter of Fudfries?? Luby's has passed it's heyday and rebranding probably won't help. Overpriced and under-seasoned.

Tried New Luby's and the food was salty, Never been to Fuddruckers in years due to high price for low quality burger.
