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
I've never been a huge fan of crab cakes. I don't dislike them, I was just never that impressed by them. Since I had heard this place had the best crab cakes, I decided to give it a shot. Covid-19: you can order and pay over the phone which I appreciated. You have to go in to get your takeout, no curbside (not a huge deal). They are takeout only right now and there were quite a few people in line waiting to order. While I was inside, I found no employees wearing masks correctly. They were either around their chin, not covering their nose, or not wearing one at all. This really turned me off. I had to wait a couple of minutes for my food which wasn't a big deal at all, but they gave me cornbread for it which was really nice. We got a crab cake platter with mac and cheese and yams as well as crab fries. I was expecting to like the crab fries more, but to my surprise, I liked the crab cake more. It was better than any other crab cake I've had. It had so much crab and great flavor. The crab fries were also very good. I thought the fries would be ok on the 15 minute ride home, but they got soggy. I would eat them ASAP. We loved both of the sides. The yams were spiced with cinnamon and weren't overly sweet which I enjoyed. They have great food and great customer service. I wish they wore masks correctly though. I'll wait to come back until Covid-19 gets better.
Staff was pleasant & helpful. Placed order they bring it out to your car. I felt compassion for the young lady issuing the food to the cars. Maybe they should get the telephone # & have the people come back to pick him up. Lots of food on the plates & price is competitive to the other seafood restaurants in other areas.
10/10 recommend LuLus! The staff was amazing and the food lived up to the hype! We had the crab fries & the crab cake platter. Every single bite was delicious! We drove from Raleigh just to come. Well worth the drive!
The food here is amazing. We saw it at the red light and decided to stop. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The food was tasty, fresh and delivered quickly. The half and half was a little sweet but over all 5 stars. Oh and the portions are definitely two meals worth. We loved it.
Great potential. I believe my salmon couldve been cook a bit longer. Sauce on top of crab cake was amazing. Cabbage was slack. Drinks were good. The tropical was too sweet
