Simply delicious food

My wife and I went there for an anniversary lunch. We made a reservation and were seated fairly quickly. I had the ribs and tri-tip combo and my wife had the BBQ chicken. If you like a rustic, home-town atmosphere, Lucille's is a great place to have a meal. And the leftovers! I think we had... read more

If you love a good Bar B Que this is the place. Their pulled pork as well as their tri-tip which are both outstanding! It is always very busy and crowded. I recommend going at lunch.

We have experienced BBQ in the South, and Lucille's tops all of the BBQ restaurants. The portions are good-sized and the food is delicious--especially the pulled pork sandwich. Lucille's is our go to place for BBQ.

I love luicielles, the food is great and the atmosphere is for everyone. They have a bar area with live music, they have a patio area for lunch, they also have an area for the family. They have some of my favorite biscuits and they are complementary.

We decided to try out this Lucille's for lunch on our way back to Vegas from LA. I ordered the jambalaya for the first time and I really enjoyed it. I've always love jambalaya and some place prepared it better than others. I have to say Lucille's is one of the better ones. The rice is cooked properly, the sauce... More

My sister treated me to dinner for my birthday. She had a gift card, so that is why we decided to go there. Thank goodness we went early and had a reservation because after 5:00, it became extremely busy and if you don't have a reservation, the wait could be long. It is pretty noisy as well. I have always... More

Yes, Lucille's is a chain, and yes we have eaten at most of them. It happens to be a favorite. The food is always very good and consistent between restaurants which is great, because you can depend on getting a fabulous meal. We found the service on this visit to be okay, not great. On this particular visit we opted... More

Although the food is good service can be iffy. The first time we went was very decent. My wife had the ribs and I the salmon. Wait time was about 30 minutes to be seated and the prices were acceptable. The second visit was very different though. We waited almost 90 minutes to be seated and well over 30 minutes... More
