    I moved to Dickson 18 months ago and just now made it to Lugos. I had no idea what I was missing. Having lived in South Florida (Miami and Fort Lauderdale) for over 22 years I got spoiled on good food, service and ambiance. Well, Lugo's has it all plus some. I would put it up against any of those fine establishments. Lugo's food was great and the service was incredible. Thank you for a great dinner. Bravo Lugos!

    My husband and I made reservations for our 28th anniversary. I guess that we should have been more specific about the occasion. We arrived on time and were seated right away. However we were seated next to a party of 8 that was very loud - talking and laughing. We waited it out and they left soon, but still the noise from the bar was too loud for us to enjoy a quiet evening. The food and service were wonderful as usual, but things were a bit rowdy on a Sat. night at 6:00.

Everything on the menu, and I've experienced it all, is well prepared and presented. Do not leave without experiencing the plantain chips.

    We live in Dickson and always complain about the lack of quality restaurants in the area. We didn't know about Lugo's until someone at work mentioned it and told us how good it was. We went for lunch on a Saturday. They didn'd offer some of the main entrees that are offered on the dinner menu, but they still have a decent lunch menu. We had the pork wontons for an appetizer. They were so good, cooked to perfection. For my main course, I had the meatballs and pasta. It was also very good. My wife had the pork sliders and she was very satisfied with those as well. The service was excellent, the waiter was frienldly and very knowledgeable of all items on the menu. we willl be back again.

    Dined on 2/14/2014
    This place has excelent food. They do not cary a large number of options but you should be able to find something you want. But then there is the quality. The menu items seem simple enough from the titles but the quality and flavor is top notch. When in Dickson, this is a good date night out dinner place. The service is not fast so don't go in thinking you will be in and out but the food is good and the portions will ensure that you don't leave hungry. As with most places that have high end food, don't expect chain resturant prices. A couple should expect to pay less than $100, unless you drink a lot of expensive wine, but don't be surprised at a $50 tab.

    This restaurant is a gem tucked into downtown Dickson. We have been going here since they opened in 2009. Everything we've tried has been tasty and well prepared. We love the plantain chips and the roasted beet salad and usually order them every time. This time we had the chicken cordon blue and shrimp and grits and would definitely order them again. The waitstaff are friendly and courteous. It is really nice to go to a restaurant and see many of the same waitstaff year after year.

    On the plus side, we ordered the calamari and mussels to start, and they were delicious. The grits dish was excellent. Other dishes and desserts were fine. Our server was able to suggest good wines to compliment our meals. We have visited Lugo's many times,this time was not up to the standard. Although we had a reservation, they seemed disorganized about where to seat us. The server had to be reminded to bring our drinks,and failed to check/refill water and coffee.. Also, the noise level seemed higher than usual. Two in our party of four ordered steaks, and we have now found the weak link in Lugo's menu. They were not trimmed well, so there seemed to be a lot of fat-to-meat on the plate; flavor was unremarkable.

    A special little jewel in Dickson. We have never been disappointed at lunch or dinner. The chicken, shrimp, and Andouille with grits is a favorite of ours; but there are no misses on the menu, only hits! Recommend a reservation for weekends. The staff is friendly, the place is clean (yes, bathrooms too!); I only wish they were open more than Wed-Sat.

    Run, do not walk to Lugo's. Amazing food and great service. The Chef and his wife are the owners, and they personally oversee every detail. The chef's food is creative and each bite is more delicious than the last. Every item on each plate was perfectly prepared. Both our meals were outstanding - one was the fish special of the day (grouper), and the other dish was a standard one (chicken/shrimp/andouie sausage with cheese grits) from the menu. We also had the special appetizer: fried green tomatoes with homemade pimento cheese. I could have eaten my weight in that alone. We finished the evening with two desserts - both of which were excellent. The entire meal - without liquor - was about $100 - and I considered it a bargain.

    We drive an hour from Clarksville to get to go to Lugos! It is my number one choice of a place to eat a nice dinner. We were in Dickson over a year ago to see a movie that was not showing in Clarksville. After, we went to some of the shops downtown and when we asked for a great place to eat we were pointed ot Lugos. I'm SO glad. EVERYTHING is great!!
