What happened to the Luby's sign on Westheimer? Here's what we know

The crew at Luby's is maintaining a sense of humor after their sign was destroyed.

HOUSTON — The demise of Luby's has been greatly exaggerated.

Users on Reddit pointed out that the marquee at the Luby's on Westheimer near Beltway 8 is taking a hit in stride with funny messages on both sides of its sign.

"Battered & broken but still open," reads the side with the most damage. On the other side? "You should see the other guy."

The location's general manager, Mike Fodderetti, said a driver went off the roadway and slammed into the marquee on an early Sunday morning a couple of weeks ago. 

He said that after the initial anger at the sign being destroyed, they decided to have a sense of humor about it.

"At first you get upset about the whole deal," Fodderetti said. "Then you have an ugly sign, so we decided to have a little fun with it."

Foderetti said the sign's in the process of getting fixed, but that in the meantime, the customers love it!

"It's been a big hit so far," Fodderetti said. "People stop by, take pictures, ask questions about it...it's been a good move so far. Make a little lemonade out of a lemon, right?"
