The tri-tip sandwich at Lucille's is one of my favorites! Definitely recommend it. :) The biscuits are also really good.

They gave us free biscuits with some kind of butter, maybe maple. My daughter LOVED the watermelon iced tea. I ordered 3 beef ribs. They were huge! They were tender and had lots of meat on them.

This is a really great place to go when you can't have home-cooked BBQ. It has a good selection on the menu.

Had tri tip and chciken combo. I think the chicken was a bit undercooked but was smother in sause which is good. Still the texture of the meat told me it was not fully cooked. The tri tip was of course well done. Service was average. Some items appear to be a bit pricy.

Bottom line, this is a meat-lovers restaurant. Lucille's has a huge Smoker, where they constantly slow-smoke their meats, which provides them with an aromatic hickory flavor. I can personally recommend the Tri-Tip,... More

Way too disorganized. The right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. Average wait for food to go...50min to an hr. Sit in, 1:30.
