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

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

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.
