“Very Busy”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Full house on Sunday morning. Very good about turning around the tables but lots of staff and customers traveling up and down aisle added to the noise. Always consistant breakfast food - speedy and dependable, but not so good if ordering an early lunch. I think they focus on the breakfast side. My salad was "okay", missing 2 key ingredients and mostly just lettuce. Corrected after bringing it to the attention of the staff. Nothing I would go out of my way to order again.

“Great food and service-fast. Always.”
Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

We have been eating here for at least the past 12 years. The food is great and the service is always very fast. There have been times that the food has been in front of me within two minutes of ordering.

“Great Food - Inexpensive - Generous Portions”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

What a great value! My family (mom, husband and friends) have visited Lucas Coney Island on Grand River a few times in the past several weeks. Consistently we've had EXCELLENT service, great food and fair prices. What an overlooked gem this place is. The coney dogs are .99 cents EVERY DAY - if you're in the mood for a great, freshly made coney on a soft bun - for the ridiculously low price of a buck. Can't go wrong there. If not, try the roast beef sandwich - huge portion, mountain of mashed potatoes and a side of veggies for a reasonable price. Also the fish sandwich was a batter dipped, deep fried 2 portion serving of fish on a huge bun - with a side of onion rings - substituted for the fries (even though it said on th menu, so substitutions - the waitress was happy to swap out the fries for an order of really tasty, hot, huge onion rings.

My mom doesn't eat a lot at a sitting, and the waitress was more than happy to bring boxes, bowls, etc. for the remainder of the order 'to-go'.

I have yet to try something on the menu that I don't like. My husband, however, ordered the turkey club and thought that the bacon wasn't freshly made - it seemed cold to him - but he didn't send the sandwich back. In fact, took the remainder home and had it the next day - so it must have been 'ok'.

They have very reasonable prices - shrimp dinner is $7.99 - possibly the most expensive thing on the menu.

Right now the biggest challenge for Lucas is the parking situation. A new gym opened up next door and the customers are consuming the entire parking lot - however, there is a huge parking lot BEHIND THE BUILDING - and you can park closer to the back door than to the front - so just drive around behind the building and enter thru the back.

We're going to make this place a 'regular' on our list of casual eating spots.
