Lucy's on the Square
Nothing says "deep in the heart of Texas" quite like Lucy's on the Square. The eatery resides in a more than 100-year-old brick building in Celina, Texas, about an hour away from the hectic bustle of Dallas. Inside, Texas-themed knickknacks abound: diners can spot everything from a longhorn skull to a wagon wheel to a cowboy hat to an acoustic guitar.
It's an atmosphere that seems untouched by time, until you look closer and realize that waitresses efficiently take orders on iPads, flat-screen TVs line the brick walls, and the menu includes trendy drinks like smoothies and mojitos. Still, the cooks remain dedicated to making down-home country recipes from scratch. They fill bellies with chicken-fried steak, fried catfish, texas toast sandwiches, and several types of pie.
