Bye bye Luby's

7 posts in this topic

Hey everyone!

Sorry to report but earlier this week both of the Luby's were closed in Shreveport/Bossier.

My wife were just in the one on Bert Kouns about 2 weeks ago.

Food and people were as good as i always remember it.

Sorry to see them go.

Oh no, now where will all the old people eat!? That's a joke...

I never eat at cafeterias, so I have no idea if it was good or not. Probably just another victim of our cruddy national economy.

Wasn't Lubys bought out by Picadilly a long time ago?

Picadilly can barely run their own company....buying out Lubys was a bad idea. This chain as well as every other cafeteria has been going down hill because of poor business and marketing decisions for at least a decade.

Not sure about Luby's, but I remember Morrison's, based in Mobile, was bought out by Baton Rouge based Piccadilly.

No Luby's in this region, I think they are out of Texas, but the Piccadilly's are holding their own.

Does Morrison's still exist? I remember eating at one in Bossier City a few times in the early 80s before it finally closed.

Rather than start a new thread I figured I'd just piggyback on this one with the negative news of the Wet Willies daiquiri bar closing its location in downtown's miserable failure, Red River District. It was a shame to see this happen, as I really enjoyed their daiquiris back when RRD was insanely busy on the weekends. To go from pulling in $100,000/month to only $10,000/month has to be tough for the owners, though I do admit I wish they'd open in the Boardwalk's entertainment district rather than close altogether. But perhaps they tried, and with them basically being an outdoor, open-air bar, the Boardwalk turned them down? Who knows.

RIP Wet Willie's! You WILL be missed by me...
