“Great BBQ for those pining for some ole fashioned southern smoke stlyed barbeque!”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

we, frequent Lucille's a lot, we've have never had and issue with food or service. The smoked ribs and meats have always come out tender and juicy, the portions are large that I never can finish anything, we normally go during lunch and a handful of times at @ dinner. I'd recommend it for a casual lunch or dinner w/ friends and/or family

“Worst Service”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

I decide to take my family here the evening before mother’s day and was extremely surprised at the poor service that my family and I received. We called before arriving at the restaurant to make reservations. Upon arriving at the restaurant, we were told that we still had to wait 15 minutes for a table; the same amount of time as a walk in. We also overheard the staff state that there was a family that did not want to be seated in the bar because it was too loud. They were seated at a new table in 5 minutes. After complaining, we were seated in 7 minutes but we were seated in the bar area directly next to some unruly patrons in the bar. It did not take long for us to realize that this was the same table that the customers seated there before us complained about. Someone also had the "bright idea" of slapping a reserved sign on the table. Not only was there a minor with us, we had an 8 month old baby us. We decided to leave.

“Not the greatest..”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

Over priced, very slow service, somewhat unfriendly. I went alone, maybe thats why I was ignored for so so long, and when I finally got the attention of a wait staff, they were sharp and unfriendly. The food was very avarage, so I considered it overpriced. I would not go back, there are too many good places in Temecula

Bad service, burnt food, and excuses from the management made my last trip to Lucille's my last trip to Lucille's. My visit was so bad that I left my leftovers behind and even contacted the corporate office. I never got a response which makes me think the business doesn't care about its customers.
