"Some of the dishes (e.g. soup, strudel, veal) were excellent; others so-so.
Owner was extremely friendly and helpful"

"Been trying to get a reservation for this place for weeks, finally struck it rich and it was worth the wait. Just wish they didn't have those oil cloth table coverings.
The food was amazing starting with the corn chowder soup. There were so many delectable sounding entrees we had trouble choosing and will be back to try them all. The side dishes were to die for and for desert we had the apple strudel that was the best this side of Hungary.

"Appetizer ( potato pancake & corn chowder) and desserts were exceptional thereby posing a challenge to the entrée. I had the Hunter's Schnitzel and it was good but too much. Difficult to use utensils as food hung over the edge of the plate. Between meat and one side dish did not see need for red cabbage and creamed spinach."

"We came to this european style restaurant prepared with good appetite and left stuffed to the gills from great food and service and armed with enough leftovers for another meal the next day. Food was tasty and plentiful, freshly prepared, served in an old world friendly, unpretentious manner. Definitely on our must do list next time we are in the area. Worth the trip. Only two things to remember, to bring excellent appetite and the restaurant is closed Mondays and Tuesdays."

"You need to have an appetite to eat at Uncle Lui's although to go packages are the norm.
Great potato pancakes to start...hearty soups.....and huge portions from lamb shank to wiener schnitzel...we had the baked potato with the family style spinach and cabbage. We didn't need the bread selection and the apple strudel was a to go must have. All in all, an early evening with a hearty meal....not for every week, but once in awhile when one is famished.

"This restaurant has been around for years and in a small strip by Lowe's. This place is small, with old furniture and decor, but the plates of food are abundant! Each plate will feed a minimum of two people, but they don't allow sharing. Keep in mind, this restaurant serves German/Hungarian food, so don't expect their Chicken Francese or Chicken Cacciatore to be like the Italian version. It WILL be different! Their Wiener Schnitzel is huge and delicious!! They start you off with bread rolls and big potato latkes, served with applesauce and sour cream. With your main entree, you receive a soup or salad. When they serve the entree, they also provide a bowl of creamed spinach and red cabbage, which they put in the middle of the table to share. Each meal ends with a dessert and coffee. The apple streudel is very good! The dishes range anywhere from.$17+, but they do offer an "Early Bird" menu, which costs slightly less (approx.$13), but the portions are smaller (not sure by how much). They have a menu, but at the door, there are quite a few daily specials posted on a chef's chalkboard. The staff is pleasant and although they don't allow sharing, they allowed my 10 yr. old son to share my plate, since they do not have a kids' menu. Prepared to take home leftovers!"
