1 Tyler Luby's to close

Posted by Ellen Krafve - bio | email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Luby's lovers, listen up. Twenty-five Luby's restaurants across the state have closed their doors. And, the Luby's on Rice Road in Tyler is one of them. The restaurants' operators say they are shutting down under-performing stores. We checked, and the Bergfield location in Tyler will remain open. Loyal customers say it is sad news and will be a bit of an inconvenience.

"We've eaten here ever since it's been here - I guess 30-40 years," said one Luby goer. "...we've raised four kids here and they ate here until they married and left."

For the next year, the company says they will closely monitor five to 10 additional stores that may also have to close.
