“Lucille's”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is a really great place to go when you can't have home-cooked BBQ. It has a good selection on the menu.

“Good BBQ and fixings”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

Had tri tip and chciken combo. I think the chicken was a bit undercooked but was smother in sause which is good. Still the texture of the meat told me it was not fully cooked. The tri tip was of course well done. Service was average. Some items appear to be a bit pricy.

“Excellent Barbecue and Southern-Style Food”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Good food, big portions.
I have frequented this restaurant since the day it opened and, while it has changed a bit, it still maintains a level of quality. Bottom line, this is a meat-lovers restaurant. Lucille's has a huge Smoker, where they constantly slow-smoke their meats, which provides them with an aromatic hickory flavor.

I can personally recommend the Tri-Tip, the chicken, the Ribs (beef & pork), and their thick-sliced Pork Chops. They also have their own barbecue sauces from tangy to spucy. My wife really likes their Peanut Coleslaw for a side dish. For appetizers, try the Fried Green Tomatoes or the Fried Pickles. Good stuff!

One thing is for sure, you won't go away hungry.
