Love Lucilles and their food. Have never gotten sick here, but it’s important to do your homework before you go on what you can and can’t eat. They don’t make GF to order but have a list of items that are already gluten free, so cross contamination may be high.

They had a separate GF menu, although the staff were not knowledgeable about Celiac and cross contamination. The first plate they gave me wasn’t washed properly and had old food on the underside which made me very very nervous. The waitress even claimed that “she didn’t think” the dressing provided on the GF menu was in fact GF. She was not sure which salad dressings were GF so I became even more nervous. I did not feel safe eating here. I ended up just getting a baked potato and had to eat dinner when I got home. Unfortunately not a good experience.

Ordered take out from here and explained I have celiac disease and will get sick with anything that has gluten in it, they said they understood. THERE WAS ONE LONELY MACARONI NOODLE IN MY STEAMED VEGETABLES! You kidding me? I feel like that was done on purpose.

A little pricey depending on what you get. I got pulled pork, mashed potatoes and the baked beans. It was all very good. My father-in-law had a non-gluten free meal and thought it was really good too.

Lucille's is great and their gluten free menu is very extensive. However, I've eaten there twice now (I thought I was sick from something else containing gluten the first time) and I've been very sick both times. I didn't want to be negative but I can't really trust this restaurant especially when I specify that I cannot eat gluten and end up getting sick anyway.

The gluten free menu is large and quite complete. All the sauces are gluten free and they have extra bottles of it on your table so you can add as much as you want. I had the Baby Back Ribs with a baked potato and coleslaw. It tasted great. No reaction at all. I have been here many times

I am a more sensitive celiac and they were very accommodating. Waiter was happy to check if the salad dressing were gluten free.

Very underwhelmed here. The food was boring and tasteless, and the waitress knew nothing about gluten free options (the person who seated us recommended the “veggie burger” or “salmon” - no clue what gluten free meant). Only good thing was that I didn’t get sick.

DO NOT GO HERE 🤢

The servers are uneducated and cross contamination is an issue regardless of what they tell you. I’ve tried to give them the benefit of the doubt, but they’re batting 1000 at getting me sick. They have an on-line gluten free menu, but the staff doesn’t even know about it and I was laughed at when I asked for a GF menu. I’ve ordered from the GF menu and explained extra precautions but it is useless. Stay safe and go elsewhere

GLUTENED!!! Was reassured by the server and the manager that my food was gf, but a couple of bites into the bbq beans I started feeling bad, and discovered that there was macaroni inside. The manager was a dismissive ahole. Comped my meal, but said “sometimes that happens with items that are right next to the mac-n-cheese in the kitchen.” I have eaten here before without incident, but will NEVER be back. I don’t trust this restaurant or the management. Sadly, it’s just NOT SAFE!
