Comfort food is a valuable cuisine, especially during times of discomfort. Experience Southern comfort food with today’s Groupon. For $10, you get $20 worth of home-cooked fare and drinks at Luc’s Bistro in Poway, which is much closer to San Diego than Alabama.

Luc’s Bistro offers simple, lovingly prepared comfort foods with a Parisian flair, combining the owners’ Alabama upbringings with the French concept of a small bistro serving slow-cooked cuisine. Fresh ingredients and Southern hospitality dominate the bistro menu like a strong child competing against a weaker child in a ditch-digging contest.

For a comfort-laden dinner, Luc's features chicken and dumplings ($9.95) served with peas and carrots. Nothing makes the brain inside a belly think warm thoughts like Luc’s baked mac ‘n’ cheese ($9.95), a melty delight of mozzarella, parmesan, bleu cheese, and peppered bacon served with a mixed baby green salad. The tender beef short ribs ($17.50) cooked in a red-wine reduction usually cause drooling envy in all surrounding tables, passing pedestrians, and pilots of low-flying airplanes. Luc’s also offers an ever-growing list of wines and local and international beers. Most wines go for $5 to $7 a glass or $20 to $40 a bottle.

For lunch, the bistro adds a selection of wraps and sandwiches, like the satisfying, classic Angus burger ($9) or the never-dry, roasted-chicken panino ($8.50), with swiss cheese, roasted bell pepper, roasted tomato, and chipotle mayo. Upgrade to the delectable fries with truffle oil and parmesan ($3.50) and order a glass of sweet iced tea ($2) to wash it all down the right way.


Riviera lists Luc's Bistro under Best of the 'Burbs, and Zagat recommends it:

  • The sort of home cookin’ the proprietor ate as a child in Alabama (chicken ’n’ dumplings, BBQ shrimp with grits) shares menu space with Eclectic comfort choices like pasta carbonara at this strip-center eatery in the commercial heart of Poway; casually clad families are especially drawn to the homey space, not least of all for the moderate prices (which are downright low at lunch). – Zagat

Yelpers give Luc's Bistro a four solid stars, and 89% of Urbanspooners like it:

  • Comfort food with sophistication. – whitesquarecanvas, Urbanspoon
  • The short ribs are tender and beefy, the chicken dishes are never dry, the mac 'n cheese is rich and comforting, and the fish is always crispy on the outside and so moist on the inside. – Leanne, Urbanspoon
  • You can't go wrong just trowing [sic] a dart at the Luc's menu and ordering whatever it hits. – Brian G., Yelp

Luc's Bistro

The concept of the South in evidence at Luc's Bistro is expansive, including not just down-home American comfort foods but historical influences from French, Creole, and Cajun cuisines. In an airy room that's a little fancier than the location tucked away off busy Poway Road might suggest, servers deliver plates accented with spicy touches such as paprika mayo or peppered bacon. Breakfast bites include Cafe du Monde beignets and eggs benedict with ham and homemade hollandaise. For a lighter lunchtime offering, diners might try the crab-cake sandwich or simply suck the helium out of a balloon. Dinner entrees range from Atlantic salmon to old Southern standbys such as country-fried steak and shrimp and grits.
