Yummy BBQ

My son knew someone with this organization so we took the trek over for dinner. We waited 45 minutes for a table. They were very popular. We found out why! YUMMY! Expensive, but YUMMY!

Beef brisket and BBQ ribs were excellent. Creamy coleslaw was good. Atmosphere was good and staff was friendly. I liked the original sauce.

My expectations were far exceeded by Lucille's. The friend dill pickles and BBQ chips were great starters. The highlights were the Tritip BBQ, sliders (3 with your choice of pork, brisket and/or chicken), and the Louisiana Pasta. Portions were more than generous, so we had great leftovers the following day. The biscuits and butter were delicious too. Margaritas were well-crafted... More

We are not BBQ experts traveling across the USA sampling BBQ, we're Canadian and eat BBQ when in the Southern half of the USA on vacations. We found this restaurant to be a delightful find - the service was very friendly and attentive and catered really nicely to our 2 kids (ages 7 & 8). The food was really good,... More

I dined here with my husband and son. We've sampled the best barbecue from Memphis to Texas and everywhere in between. This was at the very bottom of our list. To begin, all the staff was very nice, courteous, and attentive. That's where the positives end. The food just isn't good. Simple as that. And it's wayyyyyy overpriced. My theory... More

The appetizers are great and half orders are available, so you can have a variety of items. The fried pickles and okra are very good and have yummy dipping sauces. The BBQ is wonderful - both the brisket and pulled pork. They have good sauces for the meat as well. The burnt ends appetizer is a favorite. The biscuits and... More

We stopped in for a late happy hour (after 8pm) in the bar. It was really reasonablely priced and great for a late dinner. We had three appetizers and three drinks for less than $30! Service was great as was the food!

Best Baby Back Ribs this side of the Mississippi. The corn on the cob is wonderful also. Have driven long distances to enjoy their food
