Worst brisket we ever had, chewy, tasteless and fatty. However, sides including baked potato, cole slaw and biscuits were good. Overall disappointing compared to other BBQ places in OC like Blakes's or Hambone's.

The burnt ends salad is really the most amazing and delicious and beautiful salad I have ever ordered anywhere. And I order salads everywhere.

My family has eaten at Lucille's maybe 5 times since it opened at the District. The atmosphere is fun, food yummy, I'm not exaggerating every single time I've been there some problem has occurred with my food order. The first time we ate there they brought out our diners before our salads. The last time we ate there they brought... More

Food was excellent and abundant. Hubby and I shared the buttermilk fried chicken breasts, delicious, moist, fried to perfection. Something on the menu for everyone. Offered... More

BBQ as it should be done. Moist tender chicken, great ribs tasty sides. All with that Smokey flavor you're looking for. Fun, lively atmosphere. Bring your wallet, good BBQ is not cheap.

We had the opportunity to visit Lucille's recently for lunch and as usual were quite pleased! They have a tremendous variety of menu choices. The BBQ is one of the better we've enjoyed. Special mention on their biscuit bread with honey butter! Love that! Macaroni and cheese side dish also pretty flavorful and large ribs are always great! Good dinner... More

My fiance and I came here for a special dinner in February. We were very impressed with the wings; they melted right off the bone! For the main course we ordered the BBQ baby back ribs with garlic mashed potatoes and BBQ beans. We loved everything and thought the portions were appropriate for sharing. The server and hostess were both... More

This was my second week in a row for a family function here. My beans were not cook done enough for my liking and this time there were few peanuts in the salad. However, the kids seem to love it. The food is less fat than "Famous Dave's" and just more fun for young adults .

Beef ribs, Bbq chicken and sausages were delicious...they were savory and so tender. The corn was buttery. The homemade biscuits was so yummy. The mashed potatoes was good but a bit dense. Overall it was a great feast :-)
