Everyone has always said they have one of the best BBQ's in California. I must admit I like a good BBQ. Ordered the BBQ Chicken with 2 meats (Rip Tips & Burnt Ends). The biscuit with cinnamon butter is great. The portion size is too large in my opinion. The food was good not sure I would classify it as... More

Portions served here are HUGE!!! You will end up taking home some of your entrée, but the food is so tasty that you won't want to share any of it with Fido!!!. I usually end up trying some version of their ribs. The side dishes are so good, I often make the bad decision to eat the sides which are... More

The place tries to sell it self like it is a Southern BBQ joint, but it is like any other corporate restaurant. Food is OK, nothing to right home about. They try to stick to sanitized version of southern cooking. Service was fair, prices are too high for the quality of food.

Great BBQ ribs and tri-tip. The pulled pork is fantastic. Make sure you get the full order of okra. If you don't , you will reorder it.

We came here for lunch on a weekday. I ordered the baby back ribs like I used too. And to my dismay, the taste of the food was not what it used to be! It had a certain taste and smell. I was surprised and now I don't think we'll ever come back. For the price you pay you would... More

The menu at Lucille's Smokehouse BBQ is very expansive. However, for BBQ it is very pricey. There are many BBQ establishments in the Torrance area offering food as good as Lucille's at about a third of the prices. If you're shopping at the Del Amo Mall and looking for lunch or dinner, other than the prices, you will be satisfied... More

Food was acceptable but expensive considering the type of restuarant. Service was horrible & the order was not right. The server had an attitude when I told her my order was incorrect. I did not ask that she correct the order, I was just informing her of the error
