I need to start off by saying Lucille's holds a very special place in my heart. My baby was grown on Lucille's while in the womb. Every Sunday night during the summer of 2009, Brian dutifully trooped off to Henderson in search of Las Vegas' best BBQ. And he came back with mounds of food that I devoured from my place on the couch, usually while watching HBO's True Blood. It's really not surprising then that Scotty has this strange little Southern twang when he says certain words. I blame the sweet tea.
That being said, Lucille's a consistently good eat if you are looking for something off the Strip. Located in the heart of The District in Green Valley, it's a down-home, feel-good kinda place. The atmosphere is great (think large jelly jars for iced tea glasses) and it's incredibly kid friendly. That being said, the down sides are the prices are fairly steep, and the service can be inconsistent. On a Friday or Saturday night, you'll be battling the locals for a table that might take up to 45 minutes to get.
But if you're in the mood for some good, old-fashioned, fall-off-the-bone BBQ, definitely try Lucille's.
-- The Memphis pulled pork sandwich
-- The two-item combo with baby back ribs and brisket
and for the three and under crowd:
-- corn dogs with a side of sweet potatoes is always a big hit.
