We were exploring the area while visiting my daughter in college near by and saw this place. It wasn't bad and the service was good but the ribs we ordered were mostly fat. Good sauces though.

The staff are slightly loud but friendly and attentive - to an extent. We were 2 males sitting at a corner table. The place was busy with quite a few family groups eating. They started setting up a table for 8 (or was it 10) right next to us. A group arrived - mostly children - who proceeded to cry,... More

& the sugar coated biscuits you get first. I ordered the original pulled pork sandwich with sweet potato fries and side salad plus corn chowder. Washed it down with mason jar size iced tea. Will recommend

The staff was very friendly and prompt, the setting was very homey and the food was awesome, we loved everything we ordered the tri tip, the ribs, the chicken, the pulled pork, the gumbo and the jambalaya was all awesome. We would definitely recommend this place to all our friends and family members that go to visit anaheim.

We've been hanging onto to a $50 gift card since Christmas, so finally we decided to go on a rainy cold Sunday night. We made reservations for 630pm, luckily we did because the place was busy. We ordered fried green tomatoes, chicken salad, corn bread, 3 meat BBQ combo plate, and banana cream wafers for dessert. Prepare to share your... More

I'm from a BBQ state - Texas! This was pitiful! Rib tips, brisket ends, and half chicken. All dry and no smoke flavor. Baked mac n cheese - nasty! The good - you can mask the back yard dad BBQ with BBQ sauce. Sweet potato fries and beer.

One can usually tell how good a place is based the crowds gathered. This place was packed at 9pm on a Thursday night; lured by the smell of BBQ, I ventured inside. I ordered the Front Porch and was not disappointed!! Tender, juicy side of chicken, choice of ribs ( I went with St. Louis), and two sausages ( I... More

My family and I have enjoyed Lucille's bar-b-que for many years! Glad to have a location in West Covina. It's always crowded because it's always good. We enjoyed Lucille's bar-b-que, in their restaurant, takeout and catering for a special event and it was always delicious!

Thank Ejone
