Get a good BBQ fix.

Friendly staff. It took a little while for our waitress to stop by end take our order, but once she got going she was great. Food was delicious. I highly recommend the jambalaya. Fun atmosphere too!

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

My wife and I dined on a Thursday night and we got there early, 5:30 PM. We had to wait about 15 minutes, It appeared not all the servers were there yet. We started with Barq's Rootbeer which comes in a huge mason jar. My wife ordered the Pulled Pork Sandwich and I had the St Louis Ribs, half an... More

The food was good. The atmosphere was nice. I enjoyed the barbeque platter with 3 choices of meats. There is also a variety of sides to choose from such as garlic mash potatoes and mac n cheese. The food is filling so we did not have room for dessert but they do have a variety to choose from. I also... More

We were in the area for a wedding, and were encouraged to stop here for dinner. We really enjoyed it. The fried pickles were tasty, and the BBQ platters were yummy. The area is very nice too, it is in a mall that has live bands playing. A very relaxing atmosphere... We enjoyed it. Service was great too.

I had lunch with a friend a couple of days ago. The restaurant had a wonderful smoky aroma as we walked in, but it went downhill from there. It was a late lunch, so the restaurant was not busy, but the service was slow. I figure if a BBQ joint can do brisket, then they may be the real deal.... More

Stopped by Lucille's for dinner, and enjoyed some good BBQ. Not the best we've ever had, but good. Our server, Derrance, was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu, and made some recommendations when we asked. The baby-back ribs and the brisket were both delicious, and there are plentiful sides to choose from. Dinners come with biscuits and cinnamon butter--yum. Drinks... More
