“Great Ribs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

I am not exaggerating when I classify the ribs here as "great." They are. What a treat. Lucille's clearly takes pride in preparing delicious ribs and chicken. The atmosphere is unpretentious.

“Returned and excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

We went to Lucilles years ago and found it very mediocre. 2 weeks ago we returned on a whim and found the place surprisingly excellent. It was lively with excellent ribs. We went on a Saturday night and there was a special...$9.95 for a 1/2 rack plus 2 sides. For one dollar more splurge on the split pea soup. Just like mama's..
I will be back.

“Yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

We took out Chicken and fries from Lucille's Bad To The Bone and it was delicious! Great charcoal flavor, tender and juicy. Take out it is a nice option especially during busy March Break when restaurants are packed. Located in the Regency Court plaza on Yamato at Jog. Great food, not expensive. We've had the ribs before and they were also great. This is a great choice for family dining.

“last take out for us!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

we eat at Lucille's 4 or 5 times a year.i noticed the quality of most things has been changing over the last few years.it wasn't fun or good eating there any more.
we started to order out from lucille's
because they deliver and,did that well & truthfully we missed some of the dishes!
we spend around $50 to $60 each order.
at first the food wasn't so bad,considering it was take out;whole rack of baby ribs ,broiled b,b,q chicken platter,salmon, chicken livers,sweet potatoes,corn, sweet pot. fries,etc.
then it started,the quality & the cooking began to get sketchy.the sweet potatoes were full of water.the chicken livers were hard as a rock,the ribs were dry,corn was mushy,etc.
i would try again,and hopefully again always thinking it was a "bad" night or some sort of thing.
i began to call the manager when i ordered to check our order, which seemed to do nothing to change anything for the better.things got worse,the orders,were always missing items bar-b-q sauce for ribs,
a side of something,muffins & other stuff which always dismayed us.
the final straw; last night.we ordered; baby back ribs,we got st louis ribs instead loaded with fat & no meat. we ordered chicken livers lightly cooked, they were severely over cooked,like rocks!our muffins were missing,the grilled salmon was raw,cold & not fresh,fried sweet potatoes were placed in with the rib box & were totally streamed & limp & covered with the rib sauce,the sweet potatoes was also in the rib box,and totally water logged.the extra b-b- q sauce was forgotten
i'm sure we left a few thing s out,it doesn't matter because we will never order from them again!

“Melt in your mouth ribs!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

four of us went for dinner to Lucille's Bad to the Bone BBQ restaurant on Yamato and Jog Rd.
I had the Platter II which consisted of 1/4 chicken and baby back ribs. This also came with 2 sides. I chose a side salad and steamed vegetables. The meat literally fell off the bones of the ribs and the chicken was very tasty and juicy. Everyone else enjoyed their meals which also included the pulled chicken and the pulled brisket.
the service was exceptionally good. We definitely recommend this for family and friends.
