If you’re after a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, consider looking beyond Luby’s, since most of the restaurant’s outlets don’t even serve breakfast. The few that go out of their way to serve the early morning meal only do so during weekends, making it virtually useless.
However, it’s hard to argue against the excellence of the lunch items at the restaurant, and that happens to be its redeeming quality. With options ranging from grilled chicken breast to delicious seafood like the blackened tilapia, driving miles to get to the nearest outlet doesn’t sound outrageous.
Since Luby’s popularity is not on the level of alternatives like McDonald’s and Burger King yet, it’s hard to get someone to direct you to the nearest outlet. To combat that, Luby’s official website has a guide meant to take you to the nearest outlet quickly.
In this article, I’ll show you how to use the store locator on Luby’s official website. If that doesn’t work, you’ll also learn how to use Google Maps in finding nearby restaurants. Without further ado, let’s dive into this article.
How to Find Luby’s Restaurant Near Me
As hinted in the introduction, Luby’s has enough outlets to make them relatively accessible in the United States. Just like Luby’s has the entirety of its menu on the internet, it also has all the different Luby’s locations in an index that you can access using the store locator feature.
In case you didn’t know already, the store locator is a function on the website that lets you find the restaurant’s official outlets without leaving the website. Besides the store’s address, the store locator also shows you the operating hours, since it differs ever so slightly across locations.
Besides that, you can also get an official phone number tailored to each Luby’s outlet. If you need to confirm anything about Luby’s outlet you’re visiting, you can use this phone number to contact customer service. Depending on what Luby’s you’re calling, you may also use the call to order function.
With that said, here are the steps required to find a Luby’s restaurant near you in a matter of minutes.
Using the Luby’s store locator feature
As explained earlier, Luby’s website has a store locator feature that lets you access the index of all the outlets of the restaurants in the United States. As long as you’re in the country, you should be able to access the website, and then, the store locator.
Also, you don’t need a desktop computer or a laptop, as there are no maps to deal with. Instead, the store locator is only a list of the active Luby’s restaurants in alphabetical order. The list is not very lengthy, as there are only about 75 active outlets, with all of them being primarily based in Texas.
With that said, here are the steps required to use Luby’s store locator to find the nearest outlet with a phone or computer.
- Visit Luby’s official website on your favorite browser
While the restaurant is only available in Texas, you can access the website from any part of the United States. You also don’t need any fancy computers to visit, since the website is properly optimized for both desktop computers and mobile phones.
The easiest way to visit Luby’s official website is by opening lubys.com on your favorite browser. Alternatively, you can search Luby’s on any search engine and hope that the first result that comes up is the restaurant. Whichever of the above options comes more naturally to you is fine.
- Select the Locations option from the menu at the top
On the website, there are many options at the top row that lets you jump to different sections of the website. For example, you can explore the possibility of working in the restaurant using the Careers option and the Menu option shows you all the food items that Luby’s offers.
However, you won’t be needing all of those at the moment, as we only need to see the locations. To do that, find and click on the Locations option and you should be on Luby’s official store locator in no time.
- Find the nearest Luby’s restaurant
If you’ve ever visited the locations page for any American restaurant, you’ll instantly notice that something is amiss about Luby’s store locator. Instead of having the usual empty look that characterizes a store locator, you’ll see a list of addresses that represent individual outlets of Luby’s.
For a restaurant with only 75 branches, that could work, but you can’t say the same for McDonald’s with over 30,000. Even if it works this way at the moment, any massive scale in the company would require Luby’s to rethink the look of its store locator, but that isn’t what this section is about.
To find the nearest restaurant, scroll through the options and try to choose the one nearest to you. If you need a map, you can use the View on Map command at the top of the list to bring up a map. Then, you can determine the nearest Luby’s more accurately on the map.
An easier way to arrive at the same result would be to use Google Maps. You won’t only see the address that way, but you’ll also see the operating hours and a relevant phone number.

The uniformity of Luby’s dinner is excellent since I’ve always supported the idea that customers should be able to choose whatever they want to eat at any time of the day. However, it’s crucial to note that most of the options that the restaurant offers are only great for lunch and nothing else.
If you’re fine with that, this article is a handy guide on finding the best Luby’s outlets in the United States. You can choose to use the official store locator on the lubys.com website. Alternatively, you can also use the maps app on your phone for navigation instructions to simplify the process.
