I love all Lucille's, but this time I had the tri tip sandwich and it was so good! The portions are huge, so there was plenty of leftovers. I had the mixed vegetables and they were seasoned for great taste. After dinner, I tried the bread pudding and it was very filling. I had to divided into 3, since there... More

Dinner was delicious. We tried both the baby back and the St Louis style ribs and both were excellent. Very tender, very juicy,and great flavor. We also enjoyed the fried chicken sandwich. The chicken was not over fried or dry. I bought a bottle of rib marinade on the way out of the restaurant. It was THAT good.

This was a first time here for my husband and myself. We went with 3 others for a birthday. The food was delicious. We had bbq ribs. The portions were big. We will definitely go here again. Everything that each person ordered looked delicious. It made a person want to try everything!

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
