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

This is more of a neighborhood chain restaurant where you meet up with your friends, to get a bite to eat, drink, and watch the game.

After waiting for over 20 minutes after arriving at our reserved time (yes we had reservations), we were seated but no waiter appeared for another 10 minutes. Finally once the orders were taken and food delivered, we enjoyed what arguably could be the best BBQ in the South Bay.

So this is going to be short and not so sweet. Not big on BBQ. It has to be a warm summer day with a breeze for me to crave some smoked meat drenched in sauce. Lucille's was just ok. Took a while to get us seated. We had a party of 7 and they sat us in the back... More
