Description: Lucille's American Cafe is a 1940s- style upscale diner that captures the "luncheonette" feel of that era's most popular eateries, but seasons it with a dash of 21st-Century finesse. It is conceived as a comfortable neighborhood respite from the home kitchen. Homemade food, served in a stylish but casual atmosphere, with large portions and value pricing make it particularly attractive to families with children as well as couples and singles. Take-out and delivery service, as well as catering, are available and just a phone call away.Old-fashioned oscillating fans are hung on the walls over the dining room. Liberal use of dark wood, ceramic tile, chrome, leatherette, fabric, mirrors, bullet- shaped hanging light fixtures and wall sconces contribute to the feeling of authenticity. The predominant colors are seafoam green, black, taupe and ivory, selected for a 1940s palette. They complement the interior design and are lively, but easy on the eyes.Seating is provided in booths or free standing tables. The chairs are framed in chrome, like those found in a typical family kitchen in the 1940s, and finished in black leatherette. The booths are upholstered in a combination of seafoam green and black. Also offered are patio tables that overlook a vast lake, the perfect atmosphere on a brisk day.Owners Paul & Beth Nunez believe that high quality food and friendly service will keep guests coming to Lucille's. The philosophy is simple: Do everything possible to exceed guests' expectations in food, service and atmosphere. Lucille's wants guests to feel good enough about their dining experience that they would tell others of their experience.

You can always count on Lucille's being consistent. Always a great crowd at lunch which speaks to the quality of the food and friendly service. Summer specials good particularly the Greek gyro.

“Good value, excellent service.”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

My wife and I eat here at least once per week.
The menu is varied and all meals are consistently good. Excellent management, excellent service, clean with an old time diner atmosphere.
Would recommend this restaurant without any negatives. Try the homemade meatloaf!!

“Good Meal”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Had dinner iwth a friend here. It has an upscale diner decor. They are expanding the dining room. We had the chicken pot pie which was very hot. Hate when food is cold! The chicken was fresh and tender. It was very good. We also enjoyed the homemade chips and their tangy ketchup. I'd return the next time I'm in the area.

“Enjoyed it”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Met a friend staying in Weston at Lucille's. My first visit, but I love a good diner.

As other Yelpers have said, if you check in they offer free chips and homemade ketchup. The chips are good and the ketchup is sweet. I like mustard on chips better, but a small amount of the ketchup tasted good.

My meal was the California Melt sandwich with fries. It was large and good. Fries were warm and good. Friend had the buffalo chicken sandwich which he enjoyed.

We split the warm brownie sundae and we liked it as well.

Service was very friendly and attentive.

As Lucille's is at least a half hour from my house, I doubt I will become a regular, but if you live or around Weston, you should give it a try.

“A new favorite!”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

We visited Lucille's for the first time tonight for dinner based on a friend's recommendation. Well, it was my kind of place! A very nice setting with a tasteful 50's vibe. The tables, decor etc. there is also out door seating overlooking a small lake...very nice. The food was very good. I had the meatloaf and it was certainly delicious! It was traditional style with mashed potatoes and nice thick brown mushroom gravy. Served with a side of a veggie mix. My wife enjoyed the buffalo chicken salad. A nice big bowl of mixed greens, tomatoes, scallions with a ranch dressing and chunks of bleu cheese mixed in. The Buffalo chicken were small chunks of different sizes. I sampled it and thought that it very good. Well the bread pudding for dessert is absolutely outstanding! Served hot surround by bourbon sauce and topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! That and a cup of excellent hot coffee finished a most pleasant meal! Our server, Brooke, was as good as they get. She was the best! She was fast, attentive informative and helpful! And very friendly too! Our first impression was a good one, so we'll be going back again. No doubt about it! Give it a try like we did I would think that mostly everyone would like Lucille's!
