A Texas institution that traces back to 1947 in San Antonio, Luby’s is renowned for its homestyle cafeteria-style comfort food. For many of us, this writer included, Luby’s is a nostalgic establishments that’s provided pleasant memories of trays fully loaded with rolls, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, and whatever else fit. While Luby’s cafeterias in Houston are still going strong, the Texas franchise has rolled a string of pop-ups in Texas to appeal to a wider audience.
This past Friday, Luby’s unveiled their latest pop-up shop at the Enrique Moreno County Courthouse in El Paso accompanied by a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
As a part of the company’s new growth plan, Luby’s has launched a series of pop-ups at Lonestar College, as well as Central Brazoria County Business Park in Angleton.
El Paso County Judge Ricardo Samaniego was the man behind the ribbon at the El Paso courthouse.
“They waited for the right moment. And this was just exceptional. The timing was just incredible,” Samaniego told Chron. “We’re excited about Luby’s being here at the courthouse. Great partner in preservation of history, but also for serving a company.”
There are presently 11 Luby’s operating in Houston. Luby’s hours vary by location and day of the week.
