When we lived in Southern California we would go to Lucille's in Torrance next to Del Amo Shopping Center. We moved out of state a few years ago and we really missed the great food. Well we recently moved back and we now live in Lake Forest. We found ourselves in Tustin a few days ago and we saw that there was a Lucille's there. We decided to treat ourselves. It was a Saturday night and therefore we had to wait about 45 minutes. They text you when you are ready to be seated. We sat outside and enjoyed the great weather.

Once we were seated we looked over the vast menu and waited for our meal. The food came quickly and was well worth the wait. It was exactly as we remembered it. Flavorful and delicious. Large portions and not badly priced for what you get. Great service and friendly staff. If you are looking for a BBQ place that will satisfy those cravings...head to your nearest Lucille's and have a great meal.

Enjoy a cold beer and good Barbeque. Smoked brisket was very moist and tasty. It is smoked on site. My server was very attentive and the food was ready very quickly. I had dinner in the bar at a high top table which was very comfortable.

I love BBQ and Lucille's lives up to its reputation as a great smokehouse. The service is great and the atmosphere at Tustin is awesome. Not too noisy but still lively. The tri-tip was a bit dry but the entrees and drinks were great. Highly recommended.

We've been to Lucille's in numerous cities, but, this one has their business down right! The ribs were perfect, the baked beans superb, the cornbread was like homemade & the coleslaw was just right for my taste!

Orange County, California is not exactly known as a haven for great barbeque restaurants. However, whenever we have a craving for some decent “Q,” Lucille’s is one of our first choices.

This is not your typical informal roadhouse-style joint – this is table service with silverware and cloth napkins. Also, you should be prepared to wait as Lucille’s can get pretty busy, with good reason. The ribs, brisket, pulled pork, chicken and sausage are all very tasty, and the portions are generous – we’ve never left here hungry or disappointed. Their complimentary biscuits are a special treat – they’re baked with a distinct hint of sugar and are oh-so-good!
