Excellent slow-cooked BBQ the way it should be done. Ample portions, and good atmosphere. A little noisy, but it is that kind of place and not a fancy, stuffy, overpriced one. Been here a few times, different days, different times, and though the Fri/Sat crews seem a little better than Sun-Thu, they are all very good. Busy nights and weekends,... More

The sauces are not what I expected but they were good. If you are prepared for a standard BBQ sauce though, it would be a disappointment. I like the different and unexpected flavor. The fried pickle had a very good batter and, they were sliced vertically. The flavor was pretty strong. My grandson (4) had the chicken noodle soup which... More

We found the food and service very good. This was our third visit. It is a bit more expensive than other bbq restaurants, but the food is well prepared.

Several business associates chose Lucille's for a dinner last week. While some chose a feast, others chose individual dinners. Drinks were quick to be served but we had a hard time getting our waitresses attention for appetizers. Later when our dinner order was taken, she seemed overwhelmed and skipped diners. Our dinners were served but delivered by others that had... More

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
