I went to Lucy's today for the first time because I was in the neighborhood and needed to use their ATM machine. This is a great stop of breakfast, lunch or dinner at prices below $10.00. I purchase two chicken tacos, came with chips and salsa for $7.99. This is a perfect spot for a quick Mexican bite. Take your friends, kids, and family. Plus, they have a drive-thru. How great is that? Another plus, it's about 10 minutes from my Air BnB! Enjoy
