The music's not live, it's just part of the experience. Good food, good décor. Parking can be a challenge, so allow time for that. Best for lunch, dinner time can be crowded. Still, this is a good place to eat with an experience you can't get many other places.

Me my wife and couple of friends went to Lucille's Smokehouse BBQ for dinner. The location was great and the seating nothing but the same. We choose to sit in the outdoor terrace but later on we found out that its not the best choice as the heaters are right above you and will make you so hot. I ordered... More

Oh my word! The best brisket ever! And chicken. And ribs. And pulled pork. ( I never eat pork but decided to try a taste -wow amazing). Brisket was my fav. Also had never had grits as a side....yummers! Everything we ate was delicious! Can you tell it was a party with a buffet? Everyone loved this meal.

They have a tremendous amount of goodies on there menu and it isn't hard picking one trust me in that. Out back bbq style everything. The waitresses are kind and it's right next door to Delamo mall with is 1 or the biggest Malls in America. You will be back if you check this location out. A+++

Best smokehouse in town. I love to sit inside, in the "bar room". The porch area is not so nice, I prefer the atmosphere in the main area. Try house beer. Good and cheaper..:-) Great wings, burger, nicely styled restaurant. Right at del amo mall next to Barnes and Nobles..

I always find satisfaction in every bite. I make it a tradition to order the bbq special that brings, pork, beef, chicken and sausages. We get a few sides and I always leave with a few bottles of their special bbq sauce. You must visit they have the bbq figured out.

The brisket was dry and overcooked, sides were just average. Baked potato luke warm at best. Maybe this is what passes for BBQ in California but I wasn't impressed at all.

I had been here a few years previously and was not disappointed with the food here this time. A pleasant surprise was the restaurant had been fully upgraded - a huge improvement. Staff and service was average
