We visited this place the day after Thanksgiving and we're surprised to see it a bit crowded. It is clean with an extensive menu list. The portions we ordered were generous and the price reasonable. A definite must visit again!

My family loves their salad ( Lulus salad ) ! Has cabbage, peppers,corn, tomatoes all cupped. Delicious cilantro dressing. Food is on expensive side, but that's how everything is in west Menlo park. You can call and order ahead of time for pickup.

Lulu's is fast and very good food for such quick turnover. They have Negro Modelo beer, a major attraction!! I especially like the salads, fish tacos and light burrito. Highly recommended. It costs $15-20/person.

I've frequented Lulu's since they opened, and at first they were a great addition to the local easy food scene (plus they're within walking distance from my house!) I've been there dozens of times over the years and always liked their service and good, if not overly special, food. Unfortunately my last few visits have been terrible! The counter attendant...

You will be surprised that no table service is offered. This chain is far better than Chipolte Grill. Their offerings can be taken to go or eaten both inside and outside of the self-service restaurant. The sauces are very fine... just help yourself.

A pretty good taqueria, with a nice menu. You order at the counter, and there's seats both inside and out. A few beers, but no liquor. Very informal, pretty good food, friendly service.

This is a convenient place to meet for lunch if in the neighborhood but nothing to go out of the way for. Cannot compete with the place in SF's Mission district for example. But if in Menlo Park, this is perfectly fine. The strip mall terrace is not gorgeous but perfectly fine. All in all okay

I've been here 3 or 4 times before, but this review is primarily focused on my visit today. I should start off by saying that this area is home to MANY excellent taquerias, the most mediocre of which might be the best burrito in New England or Florida. So our standards are high. Lulu's is clean and friendly-looking. They have... More

Great Food very reasonably priced! Everyone gets to eat what they want. I understand why it is so popular! We went back 3 or 4 times!
