Tucked away on the outskirts of Dallas is an old fashioned yet charming restaurant, “Lucy’s on the Square.”Located in Celina, Texas, this country cooking eatery serves the finest comfort food ranging from chicken fried steak to the strawberry sriracha salad. All the charm is topped off in an atmosphere that makes the locals and out-of-towners feel at home. The décor is vintage Texas-themed memorabilia within 100-year-old brick to transport the guests to an all-out southern cooking experience.
Celina is a small town with a population of 13,000, but that doesn’t deter Lucy’s on the Square from being popular. Due to its mouthwatering menu, Lucy’s will have guests coming back for seconds. Lucy’s serves the classics, such as fried green tomatoes, chopped steak, chicken fried steak, burgers, fried catfish, and a full breakfast and brunch menu for the early birds.
