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

Lucille's was facing queues for tables for breakfast on the last Saturday before Ramadan. Nevertheless, the food remained delicious and service slick, including unlimited coffee refills. Particularly recommend the biscuit and gravy, which is hearty and tasty, and like a British dumpling in white sauce, to which you can add eggs and/or meat or sausage patties. Fresh juices also good... More

If you're looking for a typical--and tasty--American breakfast with large portions and huge glasses of juice, this is your place. Comfortable and inviting, and punctuated every now and then by the train rumbling by. Prices and service were good. Parking is scarce, but that's Cairo for you. Not the best place for quiet conversation.

We went to the restaurant as we heard a lot about it but actually it wasn't as we expected, The place is small and the space between tables is small too, the service is good and the burger is good too but not excellent as we thought, it's good but definitely not the best burger in Egypt.
