Lunch at Lui's

Quick Bites.

Hi all

I decided to add an article in here about a new restaurant in Erie named Lui’s Wok and Grill. The reason I called this a quick bit is that I just stopped by for a to go lunch and not a full sit down with Barb so I don’t want it to be considered be a full review. From the taste that I got of the food at Liu’s the Erie area has to be very happy to have this gem that has re opened after being away a year.


As the name suggests Lui’s is an Asian restaurant but what is unusual especially for a smaller town is the caliber of the chef heading up the restaurant. Chef Lui is an award winning master chef with over 20 years of culinary experience and chef Lui has been the head chef of the Silver Palace in Boulder among others. He uses very fresh ingredients and if you are looking for something out of the ordinary chef Lui has some item’s called Lui Creations which chef Lui says will satisfy even the most discriminating of pallets. One thing I really appreciate is that the chef will adjust each dish depending on how tolerant the diner is of spicy food and he never uses Trans fat or msg!

The day I went I just had time to grab something to go and asked for a lunch order.


I had Szechuan Chicken fried rice and an egg roll. The total price for this huge lunch was $7.95! The meal had large chunks of chicken and unlike a lot of places I have been the chicken was not tough or dry and when I cut the chicken in half you could see how perfectly juicy and tender it was!


I also had to try the Egg drop soup. This turned out to be full of vegetables and had a great taste.

I do have to apologize to my coworkers for bringing this back to work with me as it did cause a bit of the prairie dog effect with people popping up over their cubicle’s when the wonderful smell hit them.

If you happen to be in the Erie area I recommend giving it a try they are located at 89 South Briggs Street and offer free delivery at 303-828-2282!

Thanks for stopping by and as always if you have any questions, comments, or if know a place we should try we would love to hear from you.



  1. Lui's Wok and Grill is a fabulous restaurant and, as a local Erie resident, I am thrilled that Lui has reopened right down the street. In addition to dining in, take out and delivery, Lui also offers catering. Our company chose Lui's for our Christmas party catering for 75 people. Everyone enjoyed the variety and quantity of food provided. Delivery and set-up were timely and professional and the best part was the price! If you're in the neighborhood, do yourself a favor and stop in. You certainly won't regret it. In fact, you will probably be back sooner than you think. Enjoy!

    However, you cannot believe everything you read as Lui does use MSG and the photo above is Mario, one of his cooks, and not Lui.

  3. The photo was just some I took when I was there getting my lunch so cant say whom is whom in any given photo and about the msg I cant say either as I dont have any reaction to msg so could not tell by taste but the menu does list everything as msg free
