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.

Great Comfort Food Place

It was getting late for dinner and we were traveling. I wanted to visit a restaurant that I had heard of in Ft. Lauderdale and found it closed. Searched Trip Advisor for a place to grab a bite in Weston. Good Choice, there was a wait for sit down, so we went to their take out facility adjacent to... read more

Step back in time to the 1950's in this diner-like café. Reminiscent of Happy Days, you expect Fonzi to walk through the door. Try the home made chips with the home-made ketchup (just the right amount of seasoning). Lucille's is one of my favorite places when I'm visiting Weston.

The food was OK, nothing spectacular, the place was OK, the service was, OK, but the prices were way too expensive for what we received. We had been recommended and ended a bit disappointed. Just there.

Good food & service with a taste of what America used to be. Ambience & menu date back a few decades which is a nice change of pace in south Florida

Brought me back to the 1960s. The food was delicious and service was excellent. I had the Shepherds Pie and my wife had shrimp with blue cheese. Wow!

Was hoping this to be a bit higher end than just a typical diner - more like the A-1 in back in Maine that is borderline gourmet... but as it turns out - it is just another diner with just more typical diner food - atmosphere is 50's, it was clean but worn. The best thing was the pulled pork.... More

Went here because of the rating and it is our first time in the area so we aren't aware of many choices nearby. Friendly service, average diner atmosphere.
