I was in the mood for takeout BBQ, and it was a good thing, because the line to get into this place was loooong. They have an outside takeout window which is quick and easy. I ordered a platter that had three meats, chicken, hot links, and pork ribs. It was good, not great, I would put it definitely in... More

We just had dinner there tonight. The baby-back ribs are delicious...very tender and lots of flavor. The potato salad is the best I've ever had in a restaurant. It actually tastes a lot like my homemade potato salad. Everything was excellent! Our waitress was very nice and attentive.

Went to Lucille's for lunch, they had only been open maybe an hour & we were able to sit right away. Service was very friendly, but the food just isn't what it used to be when they first opened originally, I don't know how many years ago. Which is disappointing. I used to look forward to going here & now... More

We had been wanting to try this place because we heard from friends it was really good. After an almost 2 hour wait we got seated. The server was really nice and did a great job. I played it safe and got the chicken breast (it wasn't anything exciting and I wouldn't get it again) BUT with that said the... More

Always a consistent meal, excellently prepared BBQ, fast and friendly wait staff. Only complaint is the long waits to get a table or spot at bar, as a business traveler I'm not use to having a 45 minute wait for a seat to eat, especially when it's only me. Nonetheless, the food it we'll worth the wait and if you... More

***UNDERWHELMING AND OVERPRICED*** If I could give them no stars I would to lower their rating that much more since this was our first AND LAST visit. Let's start off with the greet time, can we say 15 minutes before anyone acknowledged our presence oh and that was after we were skipped apparently by the hostess which extended our wait... More

Excellent biscuits, savory hot links, delicious tri-tip and chicken smoked in the premises. The grilled corn in the cob is a must. I can't walk past this place without my mouth watering. If the wait was shorter and I had more money I'd be there all the time.

I enjoyed the BBQ chicken and also their gumbo is great. Prices are rather high. I would not recommend outdoor seating during the summer as it is too darned hot. Stay inside, enjoy the A/C.

To say the Lucile's is a great place to eat is an understatement. They have this dish called Peanut Slaw...oh man, unless you're allergic to peanuts, you absolutely have to try it. The Biscuits with Applebutter...oh man, I'm gettin' hungry. There are plenty of appetizers that you just have to try. Lucille's is so good, I just don't have the... More

Lucille's is one of our favorite BBQ places in the city of Rancho Cucamonga! it is conveniently located at our beautiful "downtown" mall where you can shop and have dinner all in one place, just walk down one of the streets and it is right there on the Main Street! Yum!
