I went here for a birthday dinner, and the atmosphere is great. Your drinks are served in huge peach jugs and the plates are about as big as a watermelon. The ribs are delicious and slathered in their special BBQ sauce. Frugality is not on their list.

The food here is pretty delicious, but if you're looking for someplace healthy then this may not be the place for you. They have some of the best tasting ribs in the area at generally reasonable prices. The atmosphere is pretty chill, and families are welcomed, so it's not something that you have to get fancy dressed up for. Overall I like it.

I LOVE Lucille's BBQ (bb ribs are yummy!!)...I've never had a less than great meal here and always try to save room for dessert (especially the cobbler). The staff is very very nice & always very accomodating. It's a fun place to go with a group too-

Pros: Great BBQ - really big menu...

Cons: sometimes a bit of a wait (but well worth it)!

Seems to be to much high fat items for us.

I wish I would have checked the online Orange County Food Facility Inspection Violation Report before going.

the food was served cold after we waited 45 minutes. the waitress was rude and smelled like cigarettes. the meat was dry and over-cooked, it was too busy and i felt like i was rushed out the door before i was done eating the horrible food.

This location did not meet my expectations. I have been to other locations of the same chain and they were great. This one just did not have the same atmosphere nor did the food have the same taste as the others.

One of the best barbecue restaurants in the U.S.! Great service and the ambiance of the dining room takes you away from being in the O.C. If you like ribs this is the place. Beef ribs are incredible.

Our group from work really enjoys going to Lucille's for lunch. The food is very tasty. The service is also very good. I recommend calling in ahead of time and making reservations because it is always very full at lunch time.

This is a large BBQ restaurant with good food and exceptional service. My friends all seem to appreciate this restaurants selection and service. As a steak fan, they also prepare a great steak dinner and Ribs sooo good.

We had heard nothing but great things about Lucille's. When we had an opportunity to go there we found the place incredibly noisy, disorganized and the food very disappointing. I don't think I've ever had a drier pulled pork sandwich in my life. While the portions are good sized, it doesn't make up for the lack of authenticity in the food.

If you are wanting a good meal with a HUGE portion, Lucille's is for you. The BBQ is good, but the atmosphere and drinks make it a great place to come with friends. Arrive early or call ahead for reservations because it is always packed.

We have enjoyed some really fun dinners there with the service being excellent and the food really good. Everything we had was juicy and smothered with a very tasty sauce and they are kids friendly as well! The food is inexpensive and they have a well stocked bar.

3-7-08 Ordered Baby Back Ribs, Brisket & BBQ Sandwich.The toughest meat I've had in years. Not only could I not put a fork into the ribs to separate them, the steak knife had to saw through the ribs. Brisket was tough, just not as bad.Ribs were comped but as I told them, for a restaurants signature dish, see how bad you can screw up Baby Backs, they have no business claiming they know anything about cooking BBQ.
