Luella’s Southern Kitchen – Southern hospitality

Luella’s a no-frills counter service restaurant is located in the heart of Lincoln Square serving up comfort food for the whole family to love.  Named after the chef’s grandmother, all their food is prepared with the love and care you come to expect from southern hospitality.

Fried chicken is a good idea any time so whether you’re there for weekend brunch and order up the fried chicken and waffles or get their traditional fried chicken dinner with a side of collared greens, you absolutely cannot go wrong with their crispy, fried and mouthwateringly juicy chicken.  They do it right!

Luella’s award-winning mac’n’cheese is probably one of the best sides you can get here, and an absolute must in my opinion. Their cheesy creamy shells served in a piping hot cast-iron skillet is hands down some of the best cheesy noodles I have ever eaten.

This is BYOB, so order at the counter, bring along your own beer or wine to enjoy some southern classics at this casual hidden gem.
