Lucille’s is famous for its commitment to both large portions and southern hospitality. For instance, the family meals made for groups of three to four people are enough for six guests and a meal of beef ribs or chicken may be too much for one person. This is a good place to eat out with your group of friends or family.

Among the house specialties that have been very appreciated by the guests are the St. Louise rib chops, the baby back ribs, and the back porch, which is half chicken and half barbecue.
