AWESOME!! This might be my all time favorite restuarant.

Wow, this was our last dinner before heading back to New York. This place is awesome and we loved everything about it. Our waitress Kate was amazing and the entire experince was first class. This will be a place to remember.

Lucille's is nicer than a coffee shop but not a fancy restaurant. They have a great trip tip salad, fall of the bones ribs sauced or dry rubbed, amazing T-Bone steak big enough for two, fried green tomatoes, etc. The two negatives are there is often a wait of over 45 minutes any time after 5 and the service can...

Lucille's is one of the best places for ribs in the area. It also has a number of other barbeque entrees that are excellent. You won't be disappointed with Lucille's

Service was good. BBQ ribs were good. I'm a big sauce person and was satisfied with it. Live the watermelon slice served on the side. Must get the strawberry lemonade served in a mason jar. Get ready to leave nice and full. Can't wait to go back

Ok, so there's a barbecue place in Texas, or Kansas City, or Memhis, or some tiny town in Mississippi that's maybe named something like the "Pig Shack" or "Pork Out" where you've had the best barbecue that you've ever had, five circles. Is Lucille's five Tripadvisor circles? No. But remember that this is a chain. As a chain it's pretty... More

Never afraid to suggest Lucille's to friends. It's very difficult to find a restaurant that serves great food each and every time, but not Lucille's! I have never had a bad meal there yet and it is a favorite of my family, which includes a chef !! We were amazed at the size of the smoker and when you see... More

Lucille's Smokehouse BBQ had a great selection of entrees from sandwiches to ribs with delicious side dishes. The waiters were attentive and the atmosphere was casual and comfortable. We will definite visit this restaurant again the next time we're in Torrance.

We were told Lucille's was within walking distance of the Doubletree Hotel, however due to construction and an absence of sidewalks it was a hike. We were very hungry when we arrived. Our young server forgot to give us silverware and our food was being deliver to our table. Fortunately, the manager was on the ball and got us all... More

Great BBQ, love their sauces. A little pricey but good quality ribs. Often crowded. Good for the dating crowd.
