I'd never been to Lucille's BBQ before, but was very impressed by the selection of lunch specials. I will definitely be back, and will recommend it to others.

Love the family feast for family gatherings and smaller orders when it is just the two of us. Nice atmosphere and yummy barbecue. Buy gift cards at Costco for extra savings!

Popular family and group eating establishment. Food portions are ok but the food offerings are mostly greasy fried food. The meat is not tender or the best smiley or bar b que dishes we have eaten. It is a very loud and informal place to eat.
