Editorial Review – Bay Area diner chain keeps the spirit of the 50s alive with rock-and-roll memorabilia and value-priced, all-American breakfasts, burgers and desserts.
Great service – Delicious french toast, eggs, and bacon. Waitress brought my boyfriend the wrong type of hamburger, took it back and knocked half the price off our bill! It's a fun place and I'd definitely eat here again.
Great Late Night Diner Fare – For what it is, Lori's is pretty good. I don't think it's fabulous, but I think the other reviews are being a bit overly harsh. My wife and I ate here late after a show on a Friday night and really had a good time. I had a late night breakfast (pancakes, biscuits & gravy, eggs). The service was great, the atmosphere was excellent and the crowd was very interesting. The food was good (pancakes were spot on!) but not great (biscuits & gravy left a little to be desired). It's a nice meal if you're in the neighborhood and looking for a greasy spoon.
Horrible Overpriced Food – Stopped in to the Sutter street location as we were roaming the streets wondering what to eat. I had the French Dip Sandwich and my fiancee had the cadillac burger. The Beef in the French Dip sandwich was rubbery and the burger was overcooked, not that that would improve the taste. The only thing good about the meal were the Garlic fries and the cheese fries we ordered with our meals. If you like Horrible, overpriced food, then I would highly recommend you come here to get ripped off.
overpriced sandwich – My friends and I went to Lori's while waiting for a show at Shelton Theater across the street. The 50's decor was cute and what my friends ordered looked OK. I made the mistake of ordering the half soup half sandwich and was so disappointed I had to write this review.
The soup came out of a can (if not, whoever cooked it from scratch should've used a can instead) and the sandwich had one slice of turkey, a quarter leaf of lettuce and modest slice of tomato. The bread was nothing remarkable and I had to ask for mayo. And I was charged almost $8. What a rip-off! Compared w/ other dishes I saw going by, this was more like an eighth of an sandwich.
The waitperson was polite, but had given me a blank menu.
