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.

good home cooking

Large menu with all the usual suspects...pork chops, meatloaf, many salads, burgers and mac...all well priced with good portions from what I could see on the tables in a relatively full restaurant. WE had the pork chops and they were cooked just right, with a bit of charring but juicy. We shared... read more

The food was your old time local favorites, meat loaf, fried chicken and good coffee. we preferred the indoor seating, because of the weather that day, but the outdoor is terrific during nice weather.

This is a nice place to go if you want a good Americana dinner style meal. The food is good, prices are reasonable and the people working there do a good job at making you welcome. I do recommend this place.

Lucille's Original Crispy Chicken Salad was really great. My husband thought the Steakhouse Salad was wonderful. We are looking forward to a return visit. They were very busy and it appeared people other than normal wait staff were assisting. We were not in a hurry so had no problems but others were expressing concerns about the wait.

Lucille's diner decor is homey and welcoming. We had the skirt steak and the shepherd's pie, both of which are excellent, and the portions were so large that both of us had leftovers to take home. The complimentary to go muffins we got with our check were a nice suprise. If you want dessert, try a milkshake. Our smiling server... More

This is an iconic restaurant in Weston, Florida. We have eaten here many, many times, the food is consistently good and the service is always great. My personal favorite dish is the Marinated Skirt Steak with sweet potatoes and broccoli, this is just great flavor! The milk shake is also highly recommended as well as the salads. Every time I...

The food is always great, the service is always great and i love the simplicity of the retro feel its sets. The portions are plentiful and the selections are quite impressive. There are comfort food and healthy options. I particularly love the macadamia nut chicken, mashed potatoes and the homemade blueberry pie is the best ever!!

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.
