Softball players, families with toddlers and lone diners have been coming to Luke’s for more than 13 years. Hulking burgers, mozzarella sticks and cheese steaks live up to their rib-sticking promise, fending off the effects of a few too many Amstels at the bar. Attempts at fancier fare are best avoided. Desserts, such as New York–style cheesecake and bourbon-laced bread pudding, satisfy a sugar craving but not an overly discriminating palate.
