Lisp files may mean a lot of different things, so it is not enough for 
an authoritative answer without further qualifications.

They _may_ be files that can be read by XLisp-Stat or be a data format 
coming from another Lisp written program.

For the former you could have XLisp-Stat read the file and export in a 
more manageable format (plain text, csv and for some add ons [like 
VisTa] to Excel]), for the latter the only option would be to ask the 
developer of the program or for the structure of the file or for an 
export to another format R can read.
