Lulu's Maryland Style Chicken & Seafood
This spot in Wesley Heights self-proclaims itself as the "best and only Maryland-style crab cake, chicken and seafood in Charlotte," judging by the scores of highly-rated testimonials and glowing reviews, they may be right. Order the crab cake platter and don't forget the mac 'n cheese and cornbread.
Cuisine Type: Seafood
Such a great experience! The manager, Kenya was very helpful and sweet. She provided my brother and I with an over the top experience for what was supposed to be a casual take-out order! There should be a tip portion when using card, they deserved to be tipped and not everyone (including myself) regularly Carries cash. To top it off, the food was AMAZING! Being from Maryland, places like the Crafty Crab are not gonna cut it for forever lol. Definitely recommend this place!
I traveled to Charlotte with my father and daughter and needed something to eat for the night. Lulu's fit the bill! We were met with hospitality and great energy. The food was fresh and cook to order. Kenya was the bomb and made it totally worth the wait!!! We would definitely come back again!!!
Absolutely delicious! Everything was so well seasoned. Definitely pricy (but we also got crab cake & shrimp platters) but SO worth the splurge! Being from Baltimore myself, I was SUPER impressed with the crab cakes! Wasn't busy when we went (around 3 pm on a Friday) so I cant comment on slow service like everyone else has. Matter of fact, the gentleman running the counter/register was SO friendly and even checked our food with us before we left. Only issue about this place is the parking.. but who cares when the food is so good!
I gave a four star due to the wait time being over an hour the two occasions Ive been there for dinner takeout. Its more then likely due to the influx of people that are ordering at the same time. Ive had the crab cake and fried shrimp rice platter with mac and cheese. Ive also tried their wings and the shrimp/lump crab platter with collards. Everything is always really good, I can do without the sweet collards but thats just me. I can honestly say this is a favorite spot in Charlotte and they are black-owned. You definitely need to try them out. Update: 12/12/21 Came in today and service was just terrible. The woman taking orders wasnt friendly and seemed very irritated as my husband asked her questions about the menu. Other people had similar complaints as they left. I want to support my people but with that kind of service makes you question whether you want to. I hope this establishment can make the corrections necessary.
When I say this food was amazing ! I completely enjoyed every part of my meal even the drinks ! I did not leave the parking spot because the old bay honey wings were too good ! I cant wait to come back to NC to get some more ! Service was great and they were patient while I was ordering since it was my first time. Also gave me great suggestions since the original meal I wanted wasnt available at the time. If you havent tried it please go try and Im a very picky eater. It was so good I forgot to take a picture of it. Will see me again soon !
