What You'll Get
The Great Wall of China was constructed to keep roving packs of ancient pandas from absconding with the local cuisine. Succeed where the bears failed with today's deal: for $10, you get $25 worth of Chinese cuisine and drinks at House of Lu in the historic district of Marietta Square. This is the Original House of Lu, owned by the Lu family and established nearly 15 years ago (not to be confused with the House of Loo, which is a facility containing only restrooms). Your Groupon is good toward cuisine and drinks for takeout or dine-in during lunch or dinner.
Every dish of Lu on the House of Lu's menu of Lu comes from a family recipe perfected over decades and steeped in praise. Lunch features a moderately priced ($5.75¬–$8) cast of classics all served with egg-fried or steamed rice and a vegetable egg roll. Favorites include the sesame chicken, Mongolian beef, and the spicy Hunan chicken. Starting at 3 p.m., the dinner dragon uncoils from its raindrop until it fills the menu with the lengthy list of authentic dishes scrawled across its underbelly. Dinner dishes are mainly centered around beef, poultry, pork, vegetables, and seafood with a plethora of options falling under each category. Net an order of best-selling coconut shrimp ($15.95), peck at the fan-favorite sesame chicken ($10.50), or fulfill a veggie fix with an order of General Tso's tofu ($9.50) and chase it with a dessert of sesame balls ($0.25 each). There's also a kids' menu for grotesque, half-formed adults and finicky feasters.
With an atmosphere that's as easy on the eyes as its food is on the stomach, diners at House of Lu are known to feel an overwhelming sense of eating at their own home when dining in—and of eating at the Lu's home when ordering carryout. Today's Groupon lets you experience whichever sensation you prefer.
