It is one of the best restaurants in Cairo. Place is small, but very cozy. Breakfast is stunning and they have the best burgers in the world, as per TIME magazine :)

The truly best diner in town. And my favorite breakfast place. It's the BEST pancake, waffle and French toast place in the country. And they serve it all day long! :)

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!

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. :)
