Lucille’s Roadhouse is inspired by the original Lucille’s historic gas station not so far down the road near Hydro, Oklahoma, including the vintage gas pumps just outside the entrance.
The Route 66 themed restaurant is designed in the style of a 1950’s diner complete with brightly colored motifs, colored lighting, glass bricks and polished chrome. Aside from the great food on offer it makes for a brilliantly colorful photo opportunity. The food itself is as authentically “diner” as it gets – hamburgers, mashed potatoes, french fries, pork chops and steak!
It’s worth pointing out that Lucille’s Roadhouse also features a more upscale steakhouse in addition to the diner, serving delicious hand-cut Angus beef steaks.
As previously mentioned, this restaurant is inspired by the Lucille’s gas station a few miles down the road. This gas station was owned by Lucille Hamons and her husband Carl. Lucille achieved many accolades for her devotion to her business and the mother road, including being inducted in the the Route 66 Hall of Fame. Lucille passed away in 2000 following 59 years of devotion to her roadside business.
Lucille’s Roadhouse is a relative newcomer to the long history of Route 66 but pays great tribute to a Route 66 icon alongside great food and good service. Pay this restaurant a visit and show your support for a business that respects all the traditions of the mother road.
