When the boyfriend wanted BBQ, sadly this was the only place I could think of because it was up the street and convenient.
If you're looking for BBQ, look no further than the "platter" section. Everything else is pasta, sandwiches, salads, and appetizers. Granted, all the meat that goes into those items is barbecued but the platter is your best bet. It also looked appetizing and I lost my boyfriend for a few minutes while he devoured his plate clean and I looked at my sad pasta mess. What I loved about that dish was the smoked chicken. It had a great flavor; the sauce however was soupy. They also have a variety of sauces that will suit any of your spice needs.
I think the appeal of Lucille's is that it looks like a smokehouse and has an indoor smoker. The staff will gladly give you a tour of the place and explain how it works. Service is friendly and they employ a team concept. Anyone can be your waiter or server. You don't have to rely on the first person who took your order. At the end of your meal, you get hot towels to wipe off the BBQ mess.
In conclusion, stick to what they're known for - the BBQ. I'll remember that for next time.
