“Great BBQ”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Great Memphis BBQ with Memphis blues decor. (Lucille is Bb King's guitar. Generous portions. Three of us shared the lunch special of ribs, tri tip and 1/4 chicken. We just added a salad and an extra side and were all full. The biscuits and apple butter were fabulous! For you purists, it was actually apple butter mixed with butter. The service was good, and they packed up fresh biscuits for us to take home (instead of the leftover biscuits on our table). Our only problem was getting our check in a timely manner (a large party came in as we were preparing to leave).

“Real slow cooked and smoked barbecue”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Some restaurants claim to produce barbecue but Lucille's delivers the real thing. It is part of a chain and the decor is on the cutesy side. But that is part of the show. The smoker is in the middle of the restaurant and our server pointed that out as soon as we were seated. No artificial smoke on their meat.

The baby back ribs and pulled pork were great. There were four of us and we were able to sample nearly all the sides. The cheesy grits were tasty but the garlic potatoes were better. The peanut cole slaw is also worth ordering again.

There was a long wait for a table. We were told nearly 1 1/2 hours but we were seated in less than an hour. We went shopping while waiting for a table and the others in our group called when the table was ready.

The service was not great as the restaurant was hopping with large fathers day and graduation groups. Sometimes it was hard to even locate our server as she was tending to the larger groups.

Note to management, please bring on more wait staff when large groups can be anticipated. It really is unfair to the staff who are busting their buns to do a great job.

“All Consistently good food!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Lucille's is one of our favorite places to eat. We have an abundance of good restaurants in the LA area & rank Lucille's up as one of the best. I love their Mixed Greens and Sweet Potatoes. I can't forget those great biscuits as well. Always great service, especially "Kalille"

“Best BBQ”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

We ordered full rack! And it was very delicious. We will come back for sure. :)

The waiting time was okay. My kids love the menu. The shoestring fries was good.
