We decided to try Taco Lucia after reading the reviews. Boy, they were right! Everything was delicious, and the raspberry black bean dip is not to be missed! We literally locked the platter clean. We also had the tacos. We tried 4 different kinds and I cannot pick a favorite. They were all incredible. We also had the Nancy (my... More

We went here on a recommendation. It is a neat little place with very limited seating. We had about a 30 minute wait. The menu is limited but the food is quite good. Not your standard mexican fare though. It really is not authentic but it is not tex mex either.

We stopped in about 6pm on a Friday evening in July. There were several groups of college-aged students in the restaurant and it was busy but we got a booth right away. The chipotle raspberry and black bean dip is excellent and so were the tacos. I had the Slayer (spicy) and the Black & Blue (with BACON!) and they... More

Went to lunch with a friend. We wanted to find a local place and this one had some good reviews. After squeezing past the people seated indoors on our way to the patio we received prompt service. The menu was small but everything sounded super yummy. We split the appetizer nachos and then each ordered a taco. The Nachos were... More

The individual a la carte tacos are so good. They are not some run of the mill crunchy thing you get at some generic tex mez place. I'm not a huge eater so two were plenty for me but i could see people eating like 4 or 5. The cold margaritas were refreshing on a hot day. Oh the habanero... More

For of us and kids went to Taco Lucia for a mid afternoon lunch/supper. The tacos (all 7 or 8 varieties) were met with high reviews, the favorite being the El Mexicano. But it was the Chipotle Raspberry Black Bean Dip. Wow! Just wow! I can't believe those flavors would meld so well. The beans look like chocolate chips sprinkled... More

I had the slayer, let me start out by saying hot, but amazing flavor!!!! My husband and friends had the calli burrito and they absolutely loved it. Beside the side dish of beans and potatoes, (friends opinion, it tasted like a cigarette and the potatoes seemed like weeks old) not my words because I didn't get a chance to try.... More

How delicious! The best tacos ever! And the raspberry black bean dip is to die for! Definitely one to come back to! Tried the black and blue taco and buffalo chicken taco! The flavored burst in my mouth! Yum!
