We stopped her for lunch while traveling from Denver to Cheyenne on vacation. This is the best Cajun food that I have had outside of Louisiana. I worked for many years in the south and fell in love of Creole/Cajun cooking. Lucile's not only captures the tastes of New Orleans but also the southern hospitality that goes along with it.
I had the chicken jambalaya and it was outstanding. My wife ordered the chicken special of the day made with lemon and capers and it was even better than mine. We loved the beignets, the home made biscuits, the cornbread and the homemade strawberry rhubarb jam.
Our server was Daniel and he was extraordinary. He made sure we had everything we needed and brought a sample of the house orange spice tea and chicory coffee just so we would know if we wanted to buy some before we departed. We did not have room in our bags but got the website address so we could order them from home. He was so charming and friendly that we wanted to adopt him. He is really into cross fit training and environmental science which he told us all about. He made our lunch pass very quickly.
Everything was truly outstanding and we left feeling like we would stop here for breakfast or lunch any time we are in the area. I wish they would open a chain with a location in Southern California so we could eat there more often. It is no wonder that the local's adore this place and come in on a regular basis. The couple at the next table were originally from Louisiana and said that they dine at Lucile's at least 3 times a month.
As noted by other reviewers, the restaurant is a converted home with inside and outside seating. It is a bit small but feels like eating dinner with good friends all around you.
Loved everything about Lucile's.
