Brittany, our server, was wonderful. The pulled pork in the sandwiches was excellent. That's it for the positives. The remainder is why this is only a 3-star and not my usual 4+. We were here for a Saturday lunch. There was no lunch menu, nor a lunch section on the full menu. We weren't really in the mood for a... More

We ordered the pork rib tips marinated in our original BBQ sauce. It was delicious food. Two people in our party were glutten free and were able to eat off the menu with no problems. The service was very slow, and food was expensive. Nice atmosphere and in the heart of Temecula.

Was told about this place by my brother, so we decided to stop by one our way home from our weekend getaway at Palm Springs. The barbeque was really good and had a good selection of sauce. Will definitely eat here again.

We are soon to be moving to Temecula and discovered this place by accident. What a happy discovery as we enjoy good BBQ. They started out with complimentary biscuits and apple butter which was really good. We didn't want too much food so I ordered the baked potato stuffed with BBQ pork. There was sour cream on the side and... More

I am disappointed to write a review that is so negative for Lucille's Smokehouse. We expected great food for the price. Very little chicken in my wife's Chicken Salad even though she said it was fine. However, the Baby Back ribs were not fine. Even with sauce, the limited meat on these bones was dry and leathery. When the bones... More

We had a hundred dollar gift certificate for Lucille’s and we took our dear friends to eat with us. I am not health conscience even though I should be. My friends are and they recommended we share a plate as the portions would be filling. Each couple then shared a plate. We shared the full rack of ribs and our... More

The personnel here are very friendly and go out of their way to assist. The food was hot upon arrival and large proportions. Seems to be a bit expensive thou.

Been there several times and had the Cajun Blacken Chicken sandwich and New Orleans style chicken. I would highly recommend them both. You will also not leave hungry unless as they give you plenty of food

My husband read great reviews for this restaurant and we went even though I had reservations about the fact that it's a chain and in a shopping center. We were originally seated in the bar area to the right of the hostess stand but it was freezing there so we asked and were moved to the larger part of the... More

We come here for my husband's birthday and we enjoyed so much everything. Got free appetizer as birthday gift. Staff that served us was pretty much helpful. The price is right.
