Diner Reviews
  • "This place has the best Hungarian food that I have ever had the portions are HUUUUUGE! It's not the place for great ambiance but who cares when you get the food they serve! If your into authentic Hungarian food this is the place A complete dinner with desert and coffee for under $20 And I mean complete dinner!"

  • "The waiters were excellent. The ambiance was lovely. but the sauce on the Hunter Schnitzell was tasteless. The creamed spinach was all ' soupy' not enough Spinach. The soup was excellent. Deserts were fresh. and tasty. Next time, I will have to taste a different main dish with more flavor. It is worth giving it a second chance."

  • "This was our second time at this restaurant. It is one of the few places that still comes with a complete meal which includes dessert and coffee. The food is more than enough and the service is quite good."

  • "I grew up with a Polish Grandmom and so the smell of Uncle Lui's reminds of her house - the cabbage and smell of soup waft through the air. The portion sizes are immense and to me the food taste so homemade. The cabbage rolls that I had were better than any that my grandmom or I have ever made. If you like eastern european cuisine then this is the spot!"

  • "My wife and I were traveling and looking for good restaurants on our vacation. We found this gem. On the outside it did not look like much, but the food was incredible, portion size meant everyone left with a to go box and price was absolutely reasonable. If we are ever in the area again, we will certainly be visiting."

  • "This is our second visit to Uncle Lui's. It was a 45 minute drive for us, but so worth it - my husband and I love the food - reminds us of the wiener schnitzel we enjoyed in Salzburg. I had Veal Cordon Blue and my husband had the Wiener Schnitzel both were excellent and HUGE servings - enough we took leftovers home and had a second delicious dinner. They start by giving you complimentary potato pancakes and dessert is included in your meal price. Ambience not fancy - very diner like. The food is so worth it!!!!! Will be returning again before we head back north."

  • "The dark, strip-mall parking lot was a little scary at night, but that only added to the charm once you enter the restaurant. The decorations were kitschy (in a good way), and the atmosphere was very relaxed. The average age of the clientele was somewhere between 60-70 years old, which is to be expected from that neighborhood. The entrees were large and full of flavor. Unfortunately, the service was poor. The owner took our order promptly, but then we rarely had a server stop by to refill our drinks for the rest of the evening. The soups and salads came out quickly, but then it took forever for our entrees to be served. If it wasn't for that (over) 1 hour gap in the middle where we never saw a server, it would have been near perfect."

  • "We always enjoy eating at Uncle Lui's and again we were not disappointed - best chicken paprikash ever and the calves liver is excellent too! Too much food - portions are huge and dinner includes potato pancakes, salad or soup and dessert. The apple strudel is divine - made using phyllo dough. Our party of five enjoyed our meal immensely and we all had to go boxes when we left."

  • "Decent inexpensive food; more than ample portions. Tasty basic Eastern European--veal-goulash and schnitzel, spaetzle, chicken paprikash, potato pancakes, creamed spinach, red cabbage plus specials (trout, rabbit, duck, stuffed peppers). Food like grandma used to make. Come ready to eat. Take lots home. Wine list non existant. Serves a local neighborhood who are used to low price lots of food menus."

  • "Uncle Lui's is a family owned restaurant in a weird strip mall but the food is scrumptious - you get a lot for very little money. Entrees include salad and dessert.....the apple strudel is to die for. Chicken paprikash is outstanding and the calves liver is excellent also. We always enjoy Uncle Lui's."
