I'm impressed. – I was a bit skeptical when I walked into Lucille's, but my friend and I were wowwed by the experience. Great fried okra, baby back ribs, pulled pork, and collard greens. The chicken was super moist, even the white meat. The sauces were tasty. The only miss of the night was the vegetable medley. The apple pie a la mode was scrumptious as well. I will definitely go back!!!
Best Baby Back Ribs – Man, this place has the best Pork Baby Back Ribs I have ever had. They also have great biscuits served with an apple-butter. Yum! I had my birthday party here and all over my friends loved it! This is my favorite BBQ place and I recommend everyone try it! Expect a long wait though, especially on weekends and holidays. They also have live music on Fridays and Saturdays.
The Lucilles BBQ Experience – I usually TRY to stay very, very far away from commercial franchises, but every once in a while, out of suburban convenience, I'll try one out. This time, I didn't feel that I was being taken by some teenager who could care less about preparing my food, or that the atmosphere was taken right out of some old southern Hollywood movie set -down to the window screens, coat hangers attached to the booths, or the worn looking vintage signage. All of this combined with the food, equals an exceptional job with some well prepared ribs, really GOOD sauces (upwards of 4 to choose from - 3 main ones), nice proportions, and some decent sides dish's.
User review by nichols – There BBQ tastes like fast food chineses ribs. Way to sweet. Way to overpriced. Not worth time or money. worst bbq place ever.
Good BBQ – Not bad at all. Food is tasty and service is prompt.
Great Barbeque – Great barbeque! especially the chicken. great selection of sides.I recommend the greens.Just very busy but I guess lots of people love good barbeque.The servers were great.I thought the prices were a little high but the portions are large.
BBQ + Live Blues = Nirvana – Any time I can sit down and eat some damn good BBQ and listen to the blues......well it doesn't get any better for me. You can close your eyes point to something on the menu and leave with a big smile on your face. I am sure there is a better BBQ place but ask yourslef how many places have live blues and really good BBQ? Your answer will be the same as mine...Lucille's.
Nice place BUT – they seem to rush you through your dinner. It's like the second you're done with your plate, there is somebody there to take it away.
The food is very good. I usually get the ribs and chicken combo. Ribs are big and lean. Chicken is very moist and has a lot of flavor. Not a fan of their tri tip. Not that tender and lacks flavoer.
BEST BBQ Ribs. EVER! – I tried Lucille's on a friend's recommendation. Was cautious at first, but once I bit down on the juicy Babyback Ribs, I was in Heaven!!
Lucille's is hands down the BEST place to get BBQ Ribs that I've ever tried (and I've tried'em in Texas, Nevada, and many other states), but Lucille's ROCKS'em all! Try the Pork Chops as well, they are fabulous. Their FREE buttermilk biscuits with the dinner are AWESOME!
Wash the puppy down with some Dixie's Blackened Voodoo beer and it's all good. Highly recommended. May seem "commercial," but in fact it's good ol' fashioned home cooking! For the price you pay at Tony Roma's you can come here instead: 100 Times better!
Southerners Delight – In an old Southern style setting, scrumptious ribs served in a pleasing amount is just a taste of their varied selections offered. With a packed house, the wait is all worthwhile!!
