Luby’s quick-lunch

Where have all the tea-ladies gone? And the giant condiment table with salsas and jalapenos and lemon wedges and pickled hot peppers and lots more? This serious change-over happened just yesterday, according to the person we asked. Now there are no rolling carts for ice water and tea. There are servers who must be asked for replenishments of various items. At each table was a card to be filled out about food and service. These were to be dropped into a basket on the way to the cashier. We peeked at the cards. We’re not the only ones who miss the tea-ladies. This was at the “downtown” Luby’s (Oltorf and the 35 east frontage), where we grabbed a late lunch starting at about two o’clock. It was still very busy at that time. At our table, the turnip greens, two kinds of cornbread, Spanish slaw, fried chicken, turkey and gravy, pies, and all other items were just exactly as they should be. When I enter the Luby’s memories contest to try to win that year’s worth of meals, my memory is going to include those tea-ladies. And I hope that soon they’re no longer a memory but return to reality.
