Had dinner there. Huge portion of brisket with cheesy grits ( bit to spicy for me, but good) and sweet potato fries. Brisket comes with no sauce, but there are three sauces on the table for you to choose from. Good, efficient service.

As a Kansas City native I'm picky about barbecue; I seldom find anything that reminds me of home. Lucille's is pretty darn close and a lot cheaper than a plane ticket. The burnt ends, while not hickory smoked, are pretty darn good. The flavor of...More
