Luculle's is a family owned chain that just does it right. I search for rib houses as I travel from state to state and it is hard to find good ribs that match those of Memphis , Kansas City or Texas. Lucille's is giving them a run for thier money. To be fair I always order my ribs naked (... More

We had a hankerin' for some fried chicken and Lucille's was in view. We went in and had the Mardi Gras Fried Chicken. Wow was this good! It came with garlic mashed potatoes and veggies. I could only finish half so I had the other half for lunch the next day and it was just as good. I will order... More

I grew up eating southern food so it's nice to be able to take my family to a place that has similar food that I grew up on ( Go Roll Tide)! They have good okra, nice greens, ribs, (ribs, ribs and did I say ribs! : ), and chicken. Lunch service was busy the day we dined with a... More

We are always satisfied with the experience at Lucilles, here and other locations. We like the happy hour in the bar, good app and drink specials, and good music. Fund place and the service is good. Not quite like being in the South, but pretty good for S.Cal fare!

The food here is just not very good. We ordered fried green tomatoes - they were nice thick slices, crispy on the outside, but absolutely tasteless! A little salt would go a long way. I had a salmon salad which was basically a bed of mixed greens, out of a bag, with one or two olives added. The salmon portion... More

Ordered trip tip salad. Wasn't wild about the dressing, very sweet. Wasn't fond of the sweet biscuits either. Would have liked plain biscuits. I think I'll stick with BBQ next time.

First time here. I had the Texas style brisket and was very impressed. The waiter was very great. He kept the dinner rolls coming and checked in on us periodically to make sure everything was good to go. The only negative is that the meal was a bit pricey in my eyes, but that kind of comes with the territory... More

In the area for 2 weeks so we are checking out restaurants we don't have in Kansas. Lucille's was a fun and delicious choice. We had a chip and Queso appetizer. Was worried it might be too spicy. Our servers thought we would like it but would bring something else if we weren't happy with it. They were right! It... More
