Love this place.

BB King music playing in the background, the taste of good old fashioned down home barbecue. Don't worry about the calories, it will just spoil your appetite. Just sit back and enjoy the atmosphere, and the delicious food. I will definitely will go back!

Excellent food and you are not going to be disappointed with their BBQ Beef Ribs. Order the Lucille's Super Feast (Serves 10+) for a better deal.

Food was great. I went with my family and we all ordered something different and shared. The ribs were ok but the tri tip sandwitch GREAT! Its one of the cheaper items on the menu. Drinks were good and we had good service.

The food at Lucille's is always delicious. Great BBQ and BBQ sauces. A little pricey, but worth the costs.

The food was fairly inconsistent, with one of us getting a delicious brisket dinner and the other getting a fatty, undercooked burnt ends salad. The salad had more huge chucks of fat, then it had meat. It was just gross. Having said though, three others in our party had the brisket and the tri-tip and loved them both. Our waitress... More

If my first born gets to pick a nice dinner for a special occasion we all know we are going to Lucilles. Favorite items: fried green tomatoes, all the BBQ sauces, ice tea, portobello sandwich, banana pudding, mmmm the whole menu. Don't forget the free bread.

Good food and service as always. Tried fried pickles, good, be careful not to burn your mouth. We had the Texas style bbq brisket and the tri-tip, with sweet potato fries, corn on the cob, coleslaw, and cheese grits. All was delicious.

Ten of us visited to celebrate a birthday. We had a reservation for 5 pm, and were seated immediately. We had a lot of presents and brought in our own birthday cake. Michael, our server, was terrific! It was perfectly okay that we used a small table to put all the presents on. My husband and I shared one of... More

[This review is for 2013 as a whole because i cannot remember the exact dates I went] Lucille's Barbecue is absolutely delicious! Their biscuits are some of the best ever! The bbq is yummy and sweet. I highly recommend this restaurant! Get extra bread if you can because it is phenomenal.
