Lucille’s Smokehouse BBQ
Many barbecue lovers (and pit masters) are purists who only embrace the flavors of a single region. Lucille’s Smokehouse BBQ embraces multiple styles from the Midwest, Southwest and Southeast United States, combining all of them to offer a big spread of barbecue meats and sauces.
True connoisseurs can indulge in Smoked Alabama Half Chicken, marinated in apple cider and slow-smoked, then topped with creamy, tangy Alabama white sauce. Or go with a mix of St. Louis pork rib tips and Texas-Style beef brisket. Add Southern sides like braised greens, creamy coleslaw, BBQ beans, and mac & cheese, and a hearty meal awaits. Southern hospitality extends to dessert with Lucille’s specialty: Kentucky Butter Cake drizzled with Kentucky bourbon sauce and a slice of candied bacon.
While great BBQ is often found in hidden hole-in-wall gems, Lucille’s features two high-profile locations in upscale neighborhoods (one in a casino resort). Barbecue snobs will still love the food and may even appreciate the rustic and welcoming décor. Sean McAlister, co-host of Vegas Revealed podcast and partner in Insightful Media, is one of the locals who recommends this place when you’re in the mood for something smoky.
