We were staying right across the street, and this fine establishment caught our eye. This was one of the highlights of our New Orleans trip! The place is small & intimate. Lots of personality. Character for days. Unique, and funky. A very comfortable and enjoyable experience. We watched the Saints game on one of the many screens that they had... More

have been here many times at night when the place turns in to a night club, but we dined here for the first time a couple of days ago. The tacos were awesome! Try the fish Tacos and the shrimp tacos. Will definitely come back here for a more formal dinner soon.

We just happened upon Lucy's and decided to go in. Ordered wings and some other stuff - they were decent. But what really made this place for us was the service. Our waitress was very friendly and made us feel right at home. It was a great place to start off our Sunday. I'd recommend Lucy's.

This place was packed with very young folks....who were all very drunk and loud. If that's you're kind of thing you'll have a blast. Otherwise, you won't. Albeit it was super late and there a game going on in town.

Wanting to grab a quick lunch....we dropped in yesterday...for some light Tex Mex. As usual, the service was quick and Liz set us up at the bar. She recognized us from dining a few month ago! That was nice!!! The chicken quesadilla's were tasty....along with the chips and salsa....made for a not too filling lunch, plus their house margarita...hit the... More

There are not a lot of Mexican restaurants in NO, but Lucy's fits the bill. It's near the convention center so it is good for anyone staying near there or is looking for a place for lunch if they are there for the day. Great vibe, good service, and good food. Recommended for lunch or a casual dinner.

We loved how relaxed the atmosphere at Lucy's was, and the food was great. We had chips and salsa, my husband loved the fish and shrimp tacos, and I had the cloud nine veggie sandwich. I'm a vegetarian, so finding any place in New Orleans with an option for me makes me partial to visiting again. So cute if I... More

Really well prepared burgers and grilled fish sandwich, plus tacos and other stuff. Not your typical greasy bar food...worth a lunch visit, at very reasonable prices

Did not eat a meal at Lucy's but we stopped there numerous times for a beer or a cocktail during our long weekend in NOLA. The seats outside are great and when the weather is nice they are at a premium. Great drink specials and the bar seems to be packed each and every night, until super later. I enjoyed... More
