Best steaks for over, there main dishes go directly to the brain not to the stomach They bake an incredible New York Style cheese cake, which you will never find the same taste like There This moreover the trust in their material Lucille's food is the only trusted food for my children outside my home

Lucille's offers a nice menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The best thing available however is their burger selection! I especially like the Mushroom with swiss cheese option at the Maadi restaurant. A nice bit of Americana lunch option on a Friday afternoon.

I have never tasted Burgers better than those at Lucille's I've tried every recommended burger in Egypt, I tried the most popular burgers in USA but Lucille's are far the best I'd recommend burgers with Bacon or Mushroom they are the best Some of the appetizers tend to be a little oily so I'd recommend you try the potato skins...

THE best burgers I've ever tried. I regularly take the Western BBQ Bacon burger, and it's highly recommended. I've tried the Mushroom n Swiss and Flame Burger, both are exceptionally delicious. Some appetizers are great, some are quiet poor. Potato skins and fried mushrooms are great, quesadillas were not awful, but lack flavor. The waiters are friendly and professional and... More

I gotta say that I have tried many burger joints in different parts of the world and, by far, Lucille's has been a real gem! An awesome selection of burgers fill the menu and not one of them will disappoint you. I like the Rd 9 branch (the one being reviewed here) as it's more buzzing with young (and not... More

Customer since 1997... (some of the waiters have been there almost that long, which speaks volumes about how they must treat their staff! Ask them about what they were doing during the revolution...). Would have to say consistancy is their strongest point. Food is always good, flawless iced tea/desserts, huge portions and friendly service (the owner herself came by once... More

A favourite of Maadi residents, with flocks of Egyptians and Expats counting themselves among Lucille's regular customers list! The burgers are heavenly, being done just right, not under cooked or burnt and as juicy as they come, the buns are soft and the mushrooms plentiful! Its no wonder that time magazine ran an article "The World's Best Hamburger is in... More

This is the Lucille's on Naser St. in Maadi. Their original is on Rd. 9 in Maadi and was written up in Time Magazine as having the best hamburger in the world. But having almost put my whole staff out of commission three years ago with contaminated salads from Rd. 9, I took Lucille's off my list of food purveyors.... More
