Ample parking, easy access, and plentiful seating. The restaurant has a blue's vibe to the décor and the design. I had the BBQ Chicken Sandwich. It was tasty, but unfortunately the chicken was rather small and lacking in taste. The cost to meal ratio was unbalanced.

Have tried many items on the menu and all were good. Portions are large so think under ordering, you will leave stuffed. Staff are very friendly and there is live music several nights a week. Location is good and parking is ample which is not always the case in Orange County.

I lost count as to how many times I had to ask for water. My husbands brisket was so over done it was chewy. My pulled pork was so dry I had to use so much sauce to make it edible. When we mentioned it to the server she said...oh sorry. The fastest part of the dinner was getting the... More

We stopped in here for dinner last night and Lucille's has found a new fan. I loved this place. Excellent food, excellent service and I enjoyed the decor. I've never been to a authentic down south bbq joint but this is what I would imagine one would be like. We'll definitely be back!!

I am a big fan on Lucille's Jambalaya and Gumbo. We usually start by splitting an order of Fried Green Tomatoes. The portions are large, so we often take some home (the leftovers travel well). We like the ambiance, but it is a packaged chain look. We have enjoyed the other Lucille's equally well. The food is good enough to... More

Very busy but our online reservation ensured we were seated quickly. Biscuits are incredible and a meal by them self. New York steak was tasty, but I wish they offered a smaller size (12 oz. is quite big) Jumbalaya was good and not overly spicy.

Still one of the best bbq places around. A bit pricey, but the bbq and sides are great. The sauce is the bomb, and the meats quite tender. Service is great even though they are always busy, and the wait is usually fast, even on weekends. No complaints at all.

This is one of the best BBQ places I've been to. The service is fantastic and seem like they enjoy working here. The food is always wonderful. It's busy and loud but worth it. I always get the baby back ribs. My daughter swears by the pulled pork sandwich. Nothing our family has gotten has been bad.
