Lucile's seems to be a local favorite -- it always has a full house starting very early in the morning even on weekdays. We stopped by for lunch at 1:00 pm and had a 15 minute wait - not a problem because we used the time to check out the menu. We decided to benchmark the Shrimp Po' Boy sandwich... More

Excellent Creole food cooked fresh in a nice setting. Homemade jams compliment the fresh biscuits very well. Space is limited, tables and people are set in close proximity. Ask for the patio if possible. Friendly, positive staff.

The best breakfast joint EVER (at which I've dined). Great for a weekday breakfast, because it's not so packed and not a long wait. On the weekend, plan to wait more than an hour for even a table of two. I assure you, it's worth it. The food is amazing and comes in second only to the grade-a service. Don't... More

I just want any visitors to Northern Colorado know that you CANNOT miss at this place. Be aware that the closer to opening you go, the easier to get a seat. Seating is limited and being first in line counts.

Lucille's is a great breakfast spor. Very unique breakfast specialties. Large biscuits served with most with house made jams. Has a definite creole flair. Love the food and the different dishes you can get there.

On a Tuesday morning, waited 30 minutes after being advised 15-25 minutes. Given a table "for 5" that wasn't large enough for 4. - 5th person was in the aisle and actually touching patron at other table. With that kind of wait, they could have waited 2 more minutes and placed us outside. One water glass per person plus 2... More

We stumbled across Lucile's as we saw the crowds waiting out front. With that amount of eager clientele we decided to give it a try. Boy are we happy we did! Amazing creole themed food. The sausage and grits were wonderful! The service was great! I just ate too much to have the beignets - so we have an excuse... More

This location and the one in Denver are always great. Service is always friendly and efficient. Do a nice job with authentic cajun style foods. Red beans and rice filled me up. Good flavor and just enough spice in the sausage. Love their iced tea. It tastes like it is sweetened, but it isn't. It is a neat trick the... More

We arrived at Lucille's about 10:30 on a weekday and it was really buzzing. Luckily we got a table for the three of us plus two kids and a waitress came by about 10 minutes later. I noticed that lunch had a selection of Po-Boy sandwiches and it caught my attention. Decided I'd like to give one a try. As... More

Lucile's is an awesome place to eat breakfast. There was a bit of a wait for a table, but that was to be expected as it was a summer weekend. The wait allowed us to enjoy a beautiful summer morning sipping on a delicious Bloody Mary. While waiting to order our Bloody Marys we saw a friend from our home... More
