Lucille's is our neighborhood "go to" place when we want a casual dinner or lunch out. The room has been renovated with freshly painted walls & new lighting..... much more inviting than before. I almost always order the Down & Dixie Chicken. It's grilled chicken on a bun with melted cheese, crispy onions on top & a side dish. There's lettuce & tomato on the plate so, ask for their ranch dressing which is very good. We often get their great ribs or salad with salmon on top. If you like spicy food, there's a wall of dozens of different hot sauces of varying intensity. Drinks are tremendous. When the weather is pleasant, there's a nice terrace outside. All the help is so friendly as well as very efficient & accommodating. They have a special lunch menu that's a real bargain. I's glad to have Lucille's so close to home.

I am not exaggerating when I classify the ribs here as "great." They are. What a treat. Lucille's clearly takes pride in preparing delicious ribs and chicken. The atmosphere is unpretentious.

We went to Lucilles years ago and found it very mediocre. 2 weeks ago we returned on a whim and found the place surprisingly excellent. It was lively with excellent ribs. We went on a Saturday night and there was a special...$9.95 for a 1/2 rack plus 2 sides. For one dollar more splurge on the split pea soup. Just like mama's..
I will be back.

We took out Chicken and fries from Lucille's Bad To The Bone and it was delicious! Great charcoal flavor, tender and juicy. Take out it is a nice option especially during busy March Break when restaurants are packed. Located in the Regency Court plaza on Yamato at Jog. Great food, not expensive. We've had the ribs before and they were also great. This is a great choice for family dining.

we eat at Lucille's 4 or 5 times a year.i noticed the quality of most things has been changing over the last few years.it wasn't fun or good eating there any more.
we started to order out from lucille's
because they deliver and,did that well & truthfully we missed some of the dishes!
we spend around $50 to $60 each order.
at first the food wasn't so bad,considering it was take out;whole rack of baby ribs ,broiled b,b,q chicken platter,salmon, chicken livers,sweet potatoes,corn, sweet pot. fries,etc.
then it started,the quality & the cooking began to get sketchy.the sweet potatoes were full of water.the chicken livers were hard as a rock,the ribs were dry,corn was mushy,etc.
i would try again,and hopefully again always thinking it was a "bad" night or some sort of thing.
i began to call the manager when i ordered to check our order, which seemed to do nothing to change anything for the better.things got worse,the orders,were always missing items bar-b-q sauce for ribs,
a side of something,muffins & other stuff which always dismayed us.
the final straw; last night.we ordered; baby back ribs,we got st louis ribs instead loaded with fat & no meat. we ordered chicken livers lightly cooked, they were severely over cooked,like rocks!our muffins were missing,the grilled salmon was raw,cold & not fresh,fried sweet potatoes were placed in with the rib box & were totally streamed & limp & covered with the rib sauce,the sweet potatoes was also in the rib box,and totally water logged.the extra b-b- q sauce was forgotten
i'm sure we left a few thing s out,it doesn't matter because we will never order from them again!
