The popular limited-time-only Chicken Shack menu returned to Lucille’s menu this summer and it was more popular than ever.

The Tustin, CA, Lucille’s will also host a special Day of Giving event from 11am – 1pm that will feature the Lucille’s on Wheels food truck, live music, a spin-to-win game with prizes, and an Instagram station with a gift card giveaway. The Tustin Lucille’s is located at 2550 Park Avenue.
