Was feeling for some BBQ and found a Lucilles in the area. As I haven't had any decent baby back ribs for a few month and from my experience at their Victoria Gardens store I opted for the baby back and I was not disappointed

This restaurant is usually crowded and hence try to book a table to avoid delay. I prefer seating inside to get the smell to enjoy my bar-b-que better. The biscuits they serve with apple butter is great and kids prefer to carry them home. But if eaten fresh, it tests better. We enjoyed prawns and chicken. The service is very... More

we've been there at least 20X It is generally good but last several times our salads brought out with our dinners and several times not together. Very friendly staff.Love the music on Saturdays but many times it is way too loud for such a small room. We generally been going at least 2x a month but lately not as much.... More

Our business team has an annual department meeting and each year we pick out a different dinner location - this year was Lucille's. We had reservations for 19, which can be a challenge for the cook and wait staff but this team pulled it off without issue. Our wait staff made sure drinks were taken care of, took our orders...

Worst brisket we ever had, chewy, tasteless and fatty. However, sides including baked potato, cole slaw and biscuits were good. Overall disappointing compared to other BBQ places in OC like Blakes's or Hambone's.

My family has eaten at Lucille's maybe 5 times since it opened at the District. The atmosphere is fun, food yummy, I'm not exaggerating every single time I've been there some problem has occurred with my food order. The first time we ate there they brought out our diners before our salads. The last time we ate there they brought... More
