Love this Lucille's location. Nice staff, excellent food & drinks and convenient location as it is next to the promonade. Love the tri-tip, ribs,and brisket. Great appetizers, sides and desserts.

I was surprised by how much better this barbecue was vs. when I first visited. I will return- sooner rather than later!

Whenever we walk out of here it is a least $100 for a family of four. However we are all full and happy with our meal. Our family loves to come here for special occasions. Our favorite is the appetizer platter!

Brittany, our server, was wonderful. The pulled pork in the sandwiches was excellent. That's it for the positives. The remainder is why this is only a 3-star and not my usual 4+. We were here for a Saturday lunch. There was no lunch menu, nor a lunch section on the full menu. We weren't really in the mood for a... More

We ordered the pork rib tips marinated in our original BBQ sauce. It was delicious food. Two people in our party were glutten free and were able to eat off the menu with no problems. The service was very slow, and food was expensive. Nice atmosphere and in the heart of Temecula.

Was told about this place by my brother, so we decided to stop by one our way home from our weekend getaway at Palm Springs. The barbeque was really good and had a good selection of sauce. Will definitely eat here again.

We are soon to be moving to Temecula and discovered this place by accident. What a happy discovery as we enjoy good BBQ. They started out with complimentary biscuits and apple butter which was really good. We didn't want too much food so I ordered the baked potato stuffed with BBQ pork. There was sour cream on the side and... More

I am disappointed to write a review that is so negative for Lucille's Smokehouse. We expected great food for the price. Very little chicken in my wife's Chicken Salad even though she said it was fine. However, the Baby Back ribs were not fine. Even with sauce, the limited meat on these bones was dry and leathery. When the bones... More
