Lightly floured chicken livers in a buttered cast iron skillet and put some chopped onion and big dollop of butter, caramelize the bottom, turn and repeat.

Grandmother is 91 yo and ate that all her life, looks like 100 is possible. Grandfather hated it, he died at 90, go figure.

The Pappas brothers who own some of the very best restaurants in Texas and other States? Even their worst restaurants are better than anyone else's. It's hard to believe those conscientious Greeks would allow one of their properties to crash and burn...however, with the economy--and probably overload of businesses--it happens.
I left in 2003. Can't remember if I had liver and onions there that year, but last time I had them at Luby's I couldn't see any difference.
If/when I ever get back to Houston I'll make a point to try their liver and onions. If they've slipped in quality I'll cry in my onions. They were the best.

Is there anyone who eats at Luby's on this board from Houston I wonder? It would be great to get an opinion from someone who eats at a Houston Luby's. I'm really grasping here ' cause they did have the best liver and onions and I'd love to have them again.

Wahoo, I'm hoping it's just in your area Luby's has slipped...I want my liver and onions! Whaaaaaaa!

I am easily swayed, Orchidflower. If I ever get to Houston, I will try to get to Luby's for the liver and onions. I had friends from Houston staying with me recently and might visit them in the New Year. Well, actually, they live in Cypress which I understand is a suburb of Houston.

Regarding Luby's killing people: I met a 20 year employee of Luby's at a real estate course. She was a food preparer and server. She told me that it was a STRICT rule of Luby's that the food be out only 2 hours. I guess the help takes what they want, and then the rest goes to the Mission for the homeless.
I was in Houston at time of this "poisoning" and I don't remember hearing or reading anything about that. The nut crashing into the glass window at Luby's in Waco with his truck and shooting people, yes, but not any food poisoning that killed anyone or even hurt anyone?
However, I can say I never once got sick on anything at Luby's. Just great liver and onions.
