Always great BBQ!

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.

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
