Prolific Texas restaurateurs could save Luby’s, Fuddruckers restaurants
SAN ANTONIO – The Texas restaurateurs behind Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen and Pappasito’s Cantina could swoop in and save Luby’s, which earlier this month announced it would liquidate and dissolve the company.

Both are owners of Houston-based Pappas Partners, L.P. and Pappas Restaurants Inc., which do not own Luby’s. That restaurant empire does own Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen, Pappasito’s Cantina, Pappas Bros. Steakhouse, Pappas Burger, Pappas Seafood House and Pappas Bar-B-Q.
