In the mood for an early dinner or late lunch? Great variety on lunch menu weekdays before 4:00 pm. Fried chicken with country gravy was yummy.

I ordered a full plate rib tips appetizer and they were so delicious and tender. They were even more delicious with Lucille’s spicy 🌶 barbecue sauce. I will order this dish each time I visit Lucille’s....it’s so good.
