Due to a close family illness/death right before a Thanksgiving holiday several yrs. ago, I called Luby's to order a complete holiday dinner, cooked & ready to serve for our families since the families did not feel like cooking. Odering the Thanksgiving dinner over the phone, picking the dinner up & serving the dinner was so easy compared to days/weeks of cooking for the holidays. The Christmas holidays came around that year so quick, I did the same procedure. I have done this for five (5) years now, twice per year and have never had any thing except good service when ordering, attentive attention when picking up the complete holiday meal and the comments I receive from our holiday guests re: the delicious food is well worth a few extra dollars (or even comparable to what I spent on preparing/cooking all the food as done in the years before Luby's). The turkey/homemade dressing are moist, tender & flavorful, along with the homemade giblet gravy, oh & the cranberry sauce. The two pies which came with the holiday feast were large & homemade. Luby's actually allows me to switch out pies when ordering, since the family does not like pumpkin/pecan pies. Of course you can order extras, as I do, of all the food, rolls, or whatever else the family enjoys. Just thought I would mention this in case other families ever need/want this service.
Pros: Good food. Dine in - no clean up. Choose amount & what food you eat.
Cons: Cafeteria food, as I had known it, is getting pricey, I think.
