Authentic Mexican food that not only tastes great but is easy on the wallet. I've been eating the burritos here for the past six months and they have never let me down. They have made some of the best tasting burritos I've ever had. Try the al pastor burrito with marinated pork and pineapple slices. It won't disappoint. The sopes... More

Cute little storefront Mexican restaurant. Food is great and reasonable. Very good service. Bring your own wine or beer. I highly recommend Lucy's.

Lucy's is a small, family owned and operated Mexican/Peruvian restaurant where the food is as authentic as the owners! Your meal begins with homemade tortilla chips and two sauces - a roasted salsa and a jalapeno sauce, both delicious. We've had the sopes (spicy pork is my favorite - juicy and packed with flavor), tacos (try the tongue, it melts... More

Lucy's is a tiny Mexican restaurant with some Peruvian dishes. Lucy, herself, served us and she helped adjust a menu choice so I could avoid gluten. I am not generally a fan of Tilapia, however, the grilled version was so beautifully spiced I enjoyed every bite. The fillet was not dry yet had some yummy crunchy parts. Lucy's husband developed...

Chips and salsa with the fish ceviche was more than enough for 2 people. Filling and delicious. Go for the Peruvian selection. The place is family run. The area the place is located at is ok.

We found this restaurant on tripadvisor and decided to stop for lunch in between business meetings. Our only regret was not having more time to explore the menu! The decor is as authentic as the food and provides a warm and down to earth atmosphere. Our server was fabulous. We were lucky enough to have a Spanish speaker with us... More

Everything was delicious! We had sopes, empanadas (the beef was excellent), fish ceviche, chicken chilaquiles with the green sauce, and a chicken quesadilla. Very filling, good portions! Most things were pretty spicy but we like spice so we didn't mind.

first impression. unassuming place with minimal ambience. we visited the place on a weekday. there are only few tables. The order taker was very friendly. my children ordered strawberry shake. it was far better than the one you get in fast-food franchise. the service is little slow. I believe they make almost everything fresh. main course is flavorful and portions... More
