We decided to dine at Lucilles after hearing some great things about it. The menu has some nice choices. The server was very attentive but the food was not great. I tried the ribs with the sweet potato fries and cole slaw. The ribs were okay. Not some of the best I have had. The sweet potato fries tasted good... More

As always, my fiancée and I enjoyed our meal at Lucille's. However, this was our first visit to this location and I found that it was not quite as good as the one in Tustin that we usually make it to. The pieces of meat I got at this location were very fatty, which was disappointing. However, all in all... More

Since I live in Temecula and often go here, I have felt remiss in that I have not reviewed the restaurant. First it is located near the theaters in the Temecula Promenade Mall. The mall is usually busy, so parking can be challenging. Choose to park in the covered garages and walk to the restaurant. It is a little bit... More

Lucille' s is some of the best BBQ I have ever had. My husband and I share a full rack of Baby Back Ribs and it is a great buy and plenty for both of us as the ribs are very meaty. Their sides are fantastic. The only thing missing on the menu is a baked sweet potato. They will... More

Not sure why anyone would rate this less than 4 stars. We had appetizers and sandwiches and they were outstanding. The homemade biscuits with apple butter are simply awesome. I wouldn't know that it was a chain unless others mentioned it in their reviews.

Perhaps I'm not a BBQ expert but I don't see what's so special about this place. We went here based on the glowing reviews but it failed to knock my socks off. My wife said her lunch was nice but nothing special. I had the three-meat slider plate. I ordered chicken, brisket, and pork; none of them seemed very flavorful... More

I try not to go to chains but have heard good things about Lucille's so decided to check it out. I was not disappointed. The restaurant was pretty crowded so we sat in the bar. The service was outstanding! The bartender was fast, friendly and very helpful. The cocktail I had was good and the house beers were decent. I... More

I am not a big fan of Country Western Music but that could be overlooked because of the good food and service. Be sure to try out the deep fried corn and the Margaritas!

We were visiting the area and craving BBQ. So someone recommended this place. Great ribs, BBQ chicken, and great selection of beer. A bit pricey for BBQ, but all in all, a great choice if you're looking for BBQ. Would certainly return.

I can't believe we walked passed this place so many times on our way to the movies at the Promenade. The food is incredible! Service impeccable (Temecula restaurants, specifically, Bailey's in Old Town, should learn from Lucilles about customer service).
