I was blown away by the level of service the girls provided. My wife and I were running behind schedule and I was concerned that our catering time would be impacted, but the girls assured me that they'd flex their schedule to accommodate our situation. The food was delicious, and Lucille's catering was a hit with all of our guests. Of course, my wife and I hardly ate that night because we were so busy, but the girls had prepared us each a to-go plate with all favorite food so that we could enjoy a nice quiet meal later that night. The girls were ready to wrap up and leave during our wedding toast, but they politely stood by until after the toasting was over to approach me about closing up and leaving, I really appreciated that. Overall, great food, great service, and a great time! Would definitely do it all over again!Sent on 01/05/2018

Lucille’s catered to my wedding on March 23rd at the national orange show sports center in San Bernardino, CA. Mind you that same day there was a rave and the traffic was bad. They arrived on time. Not only did they arrive on time but the wedding party along with me ( the bride) and my husband (the groom) got to the venue over an hour and a half late due to chaotic traffic. They went over the time they were supposed to pack up and leave. Instead they were so nice about it they still stayed and served all my guests with no complaints what so ever! I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for BBQ catering they were amazing. All my guests loved the food and were asking where there nearest restaurant is so they could eat it again in the near future. I would definitely do business with them again in the future.Sent on 04/11/2019

Outstanding Food & Service!
Lucille's catered our Wedding Celebration Party on March 23 with an on-site Grill Master and personal catering staff. Today is April 12, and people are STILL talking about how fabulous the food was! My husband, who is a huge foodie and BBQ fan, summed it up when he said, "You never expect everything to go perfectly or everything on the menu to be awesome, but IT WAS!" He said there was not one thing he could criticize, and I completely agree with him. We fed our guests the brisket burnt ends, chicken, ribs, Cajun shrimp, baked beans, garlic mashed potatoes, corn-on-the-cob, and seasoned vegetables. All of the above came with biscuits and apple butter, as well as sliced watermelon. Everything was delicious. Many of our guests went back for seconds, and some went back for thirds! Lucille's packaged up all the leftovers and we left them out for guests to take what they wanted home with them. We still had food leftover after that! To say Lucille's portions are generous is an understatement. They took care of us in every way - from the first time I contacted them until after the dinner service. I cannot thank Lucille's enough for making our special evening even more memorable. My husband and I will always keep Lucille's at the top of our list for future catering, as well as recommending them with the highest praise!Sent on 04/12/2019
