My mom and I drove to Rio Vista today and picked up her friend Joyce at the impressive Trilogy retirement village and drove into town for lunch. Joyce suggested Lucy’s Cafe. I had done some research on Yelp and it was on the top of my list also. We drove into town and pulled into a parking space right in front of the restaurant. It is an old-fashioned place with booths and tables. (If you want a view of the water then you should go to The Point Waterfront Restaurant).
Lucy’s fare is good solid food served promptly from a friendly waiter. The lunch menu has some Italian dishes with a good sampling of hot sandwiches. My Mom ordered the meatball sandwich with a salad. The salads arrived before the sandwiches and had tasty cherry tomatoes and beets over lettuce. My mom joked that she ate the pattern off the plate as there was only a pool of water and salad dressing within a few minutes. Joyce ordered the tuna melt sandwich and salad. At Joyce’s recommendation I got the cheeseburger with fries. All of our sandwiches arrived together and everyone was very happy with their choice. The cheeseburger was served on a roll instead of a bun and with lettuce, tomato, thousand island sauce and tasty onions. The plank fries can also be ordered with garlic.
My Mom was very pleased with the meatball sandwich. It had the right amount of sauce and the meatball was very tasty and is our recommendation. Prices are reasonable for breakfast and lunch. (I’d have to see how much food you get for your $17-25 to tell you whether the dinner menu is a good price.)
