Description: 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 local restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Lucille's is our restaurant of choice whenever we can't figure out what we want for dinner. The service is always great and food is very good. They have blue plate specials such as meatloaf and chicken pot pie as well as a multitude of sandwiches, salads and other entrees. They even make their own ketchup (ask for it) and potato chips! We have been going to Lucille's since we moved to Weston in 2001 and often bring out-of-town guests there - it never disappoints.

“Lunch”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

The food was terrible. I would not eat there again. Blt - bacon was like leather. Could not even cut it with a knife. Toast was cold. No mayo.

Great for a casual business lunch and sitting on the patio is really nice. Very friendly staff. We had a surprise lunch for my mom here.

“Good food - good service”

Meet here with friends who live in Weston every time we come south for January. The pies are really good - especially the peach and the blueberry pies.
