Saturday night patrons at Lucille’s Diner in Mulhall may have enjoyed the last supper there unbeknownst to them. After more than a decade serving guests at Lucille’s, general manager Julie Larman announced on Facebook that Lucille’s closed effective immediately as of Sunday, October 21, 2018.
“Know that this was not an easy decision for me, but one that is best for my health and my family at this time,” Larman said. “I want to thank you for your continued support of our Lucille’s family.”
Lucille’s, named after Lucille Mulhall, was originally located in an 1893 bank building before it burned to the ground in 2009.
After being closed and put up for sale, the restaurant reopened in an old remodeled John Deere dealership building for several years before closing. On June 2, 2017 it reopened again.
A frequent stop for bikers, car enthusiasts and families across Payne and Logan counties, Lucille’s was widely known for its menu, which included catfish, chicken-fried steak and burgers in addition to live music on Friday nights.
Larman added that anyone interested in continuing the Lucille’s legacy can contact Don Harman, who owns Lucille’s, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
