Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que Restaurant Review: This Southern California chain started in Long Beach and has grown into a small group of restaurants serving up hickory wood-smoked barbecue, Southern specialties, house-made desserts and live blues on the weekends. The décor is Southern kitsch, with old license plates, vintage signage, wood booths and long tables. The menu is vast, with American favorites, entrée salads, pastas, sandwiches and, of course, lots of barbecue, which is mostly prepared using traditional Memphis-style methods. Lucille's also provides take-home family dinners, which can feed big groups, with items like ribs, tri tip and roast chicken.
