    I live right down the street from Lucille's in Rocklin, CA. I always get the sampler platter to get the best of all worlds. Everything from the complimentary sugared biscuits with chilled apple-butter, drinks served in preserve jars, down to the bucket of after dinner Tootsie Roll pops on your way out; Lucilles really does the bbq experience nicely...thems is eatin!

    I ate at Lucilles I'm Roseville a few weeks ago for my birthday and would recommend.

    Wife and the kids wanted to take me out for dinner after a movie and said pick a place. I chose Lucile's which made my wife nervous since I never want to go out for something that I think I can cook better myself at home.

    I had the beef ribs and burnt ends and I was pretty impressed with the burn ends. They were tender juicy not over cooked and only had a slight hint of sauce (I hate sauce on anything, even ribs) they were good and I would order again.

    Beef ribs...OMG cooked to perfection, dry rubbed, no sauce and not huge gobs of fat. Their beef ribs are delicious! Three huge ones too.

    Sides were good too. Mac & cheese, baked beans and green beans. All good!

    More food than I could eat and I'm a big ol' Hoss. Enough to feed me the next evening too. Price wasn't bad considering the portions. I would go back and would recommend

    Update: Went back to Lucilleís this weekend. Was really looking forward to their Beef ribs. Wife was too. While they were cooked really well they were sauced. Not just a little but a lot. Really disappointed. Neither the wife or I really like suace on anything let alone beef ribs. Asked the waiter (who was the same we had back in August) why the change. He had no idea and said that as far as he knew everything gets sauced. Too bad considering they have 3 sauce choices on the table. We were disappointed.

    This time I got the rib tips instead of the burnt ends. Figured I try something different. Yeah, should not have done that. Rib tips were chewy, dry and covered in what else but a pile of suace. I actually should have know better on this choice, but the 3, 4 dollar 14 oz House IPAs before ordering might have influenced that desision.

    Sides were fine. Same as last time. Mac and cheese very good and the beans were pleasant as well. Green beans were not on the menu this time. Sad...

    I did try a bite of my wifeís half chicken. This was very good. Had a nice smoke flavor and a bit of a smoke ring. Moist and the skin wasnít rubbery.

    If I come back again Iíll likey skip the beef ribs and get the half chicken and try something else like the ribs or pulled pork. Before I would give the joint a 4 out of 5 stars. After this visit a 3.
