After a long hard day gambling out at San Manual Indian Bingo & Casino, my wife and I returned home and decided to celebrate our winnings (yes, we actually won for once) by going out to Lucille's Smokehouse BBQ in Brea. Although we've been to a couple of other Lucille's we had not been to this location even though it's... More

To start we had over 40 people with us and required some time-45min.- before our table with reservations were ready. In the meantime the staff was great in getting everyone comfortable while waiting with drinks. Once the table as ready and we were seated it was clear they were not prepared for the number of people we came with. Finally... More

Been there last Sunday. The restaurant is not crowded as any day because of the World Soccer Championship match. Service is exceptionally friendly and very professional. Food is great as usual.

Lucille's BBQ is very good, they have a variety of items on the menu from ribs, chicken, sandwiches and salads. The biscuits are to die for. This restaurant does get crowded but usually never a long wait. There is a bar that you could sit at also and tables. Some nights there is entertainment which is pretty good. Even though... More

Great pulled pork and tri tip on potato bun. You can dine on garlic mashed potatoes. Everything else on menu is very good. Try Best Chocolate Cake Ever.

My only regret about this place is that it's strictly a West Coast outfit so we won't be able to eat here again anytime soon. Excellent brisket, superb sweet potato fries, tasty biscuits and excellent service. Great place for bbq.

My title says it all. There is a Happy Hour menu with many choices...it's on their website. There were four of us...we walked out full and happy...the entire bill was only $39.00 which included one beer and one Gin & Tonic. The food is delicious and the portions are not skimpy. We might just go again tonight!

Nice and attentive service, our server was very friendly and patient cuz my boyfriend and I are pretty indecisive when choosing things from the menu. Her opinions really helped decide what we were going to get. Food was delicious, melt in your mouth meats. Plus they have four different types of bbq sauces on the table too, got to experiment...
