It's a nice place in the middle of street 9, one of the old streets and most known with Cousy couches and ambience , a friendly staff, a wide variety of American menu items as well as Tex-mex .. you have to try the colossus burger if you have the appetite for it, the con-carn chili as well, the breakfast...

Was touring through Cairo and went there for lunch on the recommendation of a friend. We had the Chicken Fried Steak and Tacos. It isn't the chicken fried steak you will get at a road house in the southern U.S., but it was pretty good. Mashed potatoes and Gravy were excellent along with the veggies. Service wasn't outstanding, but the... More

It's known that Lucille's have good burgers, however I tried their steak and it really ruined my day. The meat quality is very low even though the price is expensive. It's not juicy, and it has alot of mushroom sauce over it to cover the bad taste of the meat. Lesson learned NEVER ORDER STEAK FROM HERE!

If you are craving pancakes, eggs and bacon, biscuits and sausages or a nice chicken stake Lucilles is your place. Menu is similar to IHOP or any other dinner in the US. I always go there for brunch but on weekends the place is packed with around 45 mins waiting, if you're free go on a weekday it will be... More

Ignore everything on the menu except the burgers and the onion rings. Definitely the best burgers in Egypt. If you're in Maadi, make sure you go for a burger.

They always continue to serve the best pancake, waffles, and French toast the way it should be. They are the best diner and they have a good team. Lucille's is the place if you're an American and you really miss home. :)

Today, we went there for brunch as we wanted to have some good pancakes. When we received the Maple syrup, it was too light and tastes like cheap corn syrup or just water and sugar!! When we told the waiter, he said that this is their famous "homemade maple syrup"!! Well, as maple syrup is natural, we wasn't sure what... More
