Lucy’s Eastside Diner: Awesome MilkShakes!

Back to Lucy’s Eastside Diner for late night eats with a few friends! I really like this place since the food is reasonably priced and you know it’s never closed since it’s 24 hours. The food isn’t the best thing you have ever eaten, but it’s good comfort food.

The interior doesn’t have too many seats, but when I come here, there are usually counter space left to sit.

Bottled Dad’s Old Fashioned Root Beer ($3.75) if you like root beer, you’ll love this.

Bottled Dad’s Old Fashioned Cream Soda ($3.75) M thought this was good but he still preferred the root beer over the cream soda.

20 Oz. Oreo Milk Shake ($5) is one of my favorite milk shakes from Lucy’s Eastside Diner. Yum!

20 Oz. Peanut Butter Milk Shake ($5) this is my second favorite flavour for a milkshake! I think they just mix peanut butter and ice cream together. It’s a bit fattening, but if you love peanut butter…get this!

Peppercorn Roast Beef Sandwich ($8.50) has roast beef, fried onions, peppercorn cream cheese, and lettuce on toasted sourdough bread.

The roast beef was quite dry and not very flavourful. Very poorly made sandwich and I was not impressed.

The Grant Marshall ($10.50) has double patties, bacon, onions, mushrooms, cheese, fried egg, and chili.

M ordered it because of the crazy amount of meat, but just said the taste was alright. This like is a pile of heart attack.

Meatloaf and Mac & Cheese ($9) has a hoagie bun filled with meatloaf and topped with mac & cheese.

Root Beer Pulled Pork Sandwich ($8) has slow roasted pork in root beer and rub served with coleslaw inside and fries outside.

The taste is quite subtle, so it can be a bit hard to taste the root beer. It also tasted decent, but nothing too amazing.

Winner Winner Fried Chicken Dinner ($9) has breaded fried chicken, mashed potatoes, steamed vegetables, and gravy. The fried chicken was so bland and needed some seasoning to the coating. Also, the coating was quite thick.

Overall, the food can be a hit or a miss, but one thing is for sure….the milkshakes are good. Some of the brunch items are pretty good too. With such a large menu, I’m sure you’ll find something that caters to your taste buds.

Words of Wisdom:

  • Limited seating, not good for large groups
  • Uncle Grants Eating Challenge
  • So-so Food
  • Amazing fries and hash browns….SUPER CRISPY!
  • My favorite: Milkshakes + Meatloaf and Mac & Cheese or pulled pork and Mac & Cheese
  • Open 24 hours

  • Hmm, I’ve not tried their milkshakes but they look great. And for only $5 seems like a great bargain too.

    I find their food quite average in taste (or lack thereof) and quality. It’s not bad, just not nearly like the (over-)hype they received upon opening. Having said that, with Bert’s demise up the street, Lucy’s will have to do to provide the role of a greasy diner in these parts, as Reno’s at Broadway/Main isn’t open late, and Slickity Jim’s is too far up the street. Good to have options, I guess.
