The food is amazing!

My second visit to this unique restaurant and I was again, very impressed with the amazing quality of the meal. This place is VERY popular so reservations are advised. They really bring New Orleans to Fort Collins!

My husband, son and I were frequent visitors here - and always enjoyed both lunch and breakfast items. Let me tell you why you should go - there is always a line as anyone who eats here once craves it and it's worth the wait. It's a super quaint house, the staff are well trained but it's the ffffffooooooodddddd that... More

We went for brunch on Easter and it was wonderful. We had a bit of a wait but it was worth it. We started with the beignets which were incredible. They were big, hot and so good. I had a mimosa of fresh squeezed oj that was served with a mini bottle of sparkly so you could adjust the amount.... More

My son and I were lucky enough to drive by one late Tuesday morning and see that there were no people waiting outside so we got a seat immediately. The beignets were excellent, dusted with powdered sugar, fresh squeezed orange juice, homemade jams at the table. I ordered the farmers eggs and was a little disappointed. It was more like... More

We stopped in for lunch and ordered a mix of creative egg dishes and sandwiches. Everything was perfect. The eggs were cooked perfectly and the spices were well done: not too strong but effective. The red beans and rice actually had what I believe was chunks of pork in it and that was a nice surprise. The sausage po'boy could... More

You'll probably have to wait to get in - but stick it out, you'll be glad you did. The food is just awesome - the blackened salmon, the Farmer's eggs, the beignets, the grits, the french toast & syrup. Really good food. Friendly staff and the portions are so large we brought another meal home with us. Really happy we... More

We just moved to Fort Collins and had our first breakfast out at Luciles. We absolutely loved it! The girls that work there were very attentive (both Marissa the hostess and Sarah our waitress). Everything was wonderful from the cafe au lait, to the poached eggs, to the potatoes and even the grits! I cannot wait to visit again!

Lucille's is a New Orleans/Southern themed breakfast place. Having eaten here over the past 15 years I feel the experience has gone downhill. While still a fine place (with very good beignets) it is not as tasty as other choices in Fort Collins.

We started off our brunch with a half order of beignets. Great Bloody Mary garnished with olive, celery and a cocktail shrimp--a cocktail extravaganza. Do yourself a favor and take home a bottle of their ketchup...it's some of the best I've ever had.

I have lived in Fort Collins for the better part of my life and have most likely eaten at mosts of the restaurants. The Rio is generally known for the Margaritas. They are very good on hot afternoon, however the food is something less attractive. If you are in the mood for authentic Mexican food and not into Margaritas, look... More
