D’Lucas in Lakeland, FL

OMG...the food at D’Lucas is amazing...get your palate ready! This small, quaint, off the beacon road drive in is one you should not miss. The infusion of Cuban and Peruvian food is delicious! Owner, Chef Marcos Fernandez has mastered quality~Food like the Original rice bowl of jasmine rice, black beans and Vaca, caramelized onions, a hint of lime and garlic chips! ...And their classic Aji de Pollo a Peruvian dish of farm raised chicken blended in creamy Amarillo pepper béchamel sauce finished with manchego cheese...exquisito (very delicious)! Not to mention the shortbread pastelitos of guava and cream cheese, churros with decadent chocolate sauce and more! Ahh...come on Guy...you must come to Lakeland, Florida! D’Lucas, 1037 Dixieland Mall Lane, Lakeland, Florida 33803

    D’Lucas is my family’s new favorite spot. Their fusion of Peruvian and D’Lucas is my family’s new favorite spot. Their fusion of Peruvian and Cuban food gives me a little taste of what I loved to eat when I lived in Miami. And being part Peruvian, I know how hard finding anything Peruvian can be around here so D’Lucas really delivers in that craving department.

    D’Lucas is awesome and Chef Marcos is involved 24/7 in ensuring the place operates smoothly and every customer leaves full and pleased. He is very active on social media and is constantly interacting with his customers to introduce new items and to hear their feedback. He is always listening and you can tell by the smile in his face that Chef Marcos is truly pursuing his passion. His love for his craft 100% shows up on the menu. I can’t even pick my favorite dish there.... I could throw a dart at the menu and hit something I love every time. Guy, you deserve to try this place. I’ve watched you on TV for years and this is exactly your type of place. You’re gonna fist-bump the whole restaurant.

    D'Lucas is the best!!! Chef Marcos is awesome. He uses pork raised at our farm and fancy cheese to create a delicious Cuban sandwich. There are many takes on the Cuban, being it is the State sandwich of Florida. But his, the El Cubano, from D'Lucas, is not just another Cuban sandwich. It has Mt Citra pork (from our farm), Serrano ham, sour orange aioli, pickled green tomatoes, and fresh Cuban bread, made in-house, smothered with local honey and butter. It is a must try. Beware, it is addictive! Don't say I didn't warn you. We love Chef Marcos for his unwavering support of local farms and of course, his talent.

    Let me be the first to say...that D’Lucas is a great find! The food is full of flavor, authentic and a great value! After eating there several times I had to take my friend, then my husband...its a place that's comfortable, the staff is friendly & accommodation, but its the food that brings us back! Quickly going to the too of our list!
