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.

I was born in the Midwest in what I call "Cow town USA." I come from a farming family who worked the land and raised the cattle for indistries like Lucille's. With that being said, Lucille's Smokehouse Barbecue delivers some of the VERY BEST beef ribs I have ever eaten here in California! *Please note...these are NOT to be categorized... More

It's "ok" for mall food. Not authentic tasting because they use way too much "liquid smoke". Overshadows and kills the taste of the meat.

I have eaten here several times and have also gotten family meals to go when we are having company. I have never had a bad meal here. My wife is not a big meat eater, so I don't get here as often as I would like. All the food is good, but I have found that the take out is... More

Went there twice. Each time it was busy, so I suggest reservations! Really varied menu with all sorts of included sides to choose from. I had chicken one time and ribs the other. Both excellent. Plus the have three sauces on the table to try. Excellent place, and really shocked it is part of a chain because it does not... More

So, the legendary biscuits were very much 'you have to try these'. And I did. And they're scones. And delicious. Food was excellent, the sweet potato fries were awesome. Loved the diner style feel and the staff were friendly. It's got a nice atmosphere and really well located in the mall.

I visited this restaurant for the first time with a friend on Wednesday. We chose this restaurant because I kept hearing that it was to die for and that it was the "best BBQ in Temecula." Now, that is a lot to live up to! Upon entering the restaurant, my dining companion made the comment "this place sure doesn't smell... More
