    Wedding catering

    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.

    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!

    Amazing Wedding Dinner for our 200 Guests

    This is our 2nd time using Lucilles BBQ for our kids' weddings. Amazing Service, Great food and lots of it, wonderful to work with. Truly, it could not have been better!! Our power went out for a short while during our reception, without missing a beat the caterores used their cell phone flashlights to light up the buffet table so our guests could see every thing.
    Very highly recommended!
    Thank you, Sherrie DeVries

    My son's wedding.

    They catered my son's small yet elegant wedding given only a weeks notice. They delivered on time, it was kept hot and tasted delicious, just like barbeque is suppose to be. They set up the food in an appitizing manner and made sure that we did not need anything else. It was so relaxing for me, the grooms mother. I would do it again in a heart beat. Thank you so much!

    I Loved our experience with Lucille’s!

    We are so happy to have chosen Lucille’s to cater our wedding. I feel bad that I’m unable to recall the girl’s name, but she was beyond AMAZING! She was not only so kind and professional, she was extremely patient. We had several children at our wedding and she was just awesome to the little ones. We would definitely love to have Lucille’s cater our events in the future! I’m sorry it took me so many months to write this review. Thank you!

    San Diego Wedding

    The process with Lucille’s was so easy and painless! They responded quickly and promptly. They made sure all my questions and concerns were covered.
    All of my guests raved about the food, they even bring to go boxes for the leftovers!
    Their service was terrific, I have no complaints whatsoever.

    I have nothing but positive things to say about Lucille's catering. They exceeded my expectations. We used them for our wedding dinner.

    Their buffet was beautifully done and the food was excellent. They match the linens with your colors and theme which I really loved. The service was impeccable and throughout the entire planning process their team was responsive, accommodating and very friendly.

    The only thing I would change is maybe the quantity of food I ordered. We had 82 people and I ordered enough for each person plus vendor sandwich meals which mostly went to waste because they did not eat them. We had soooo much food left over and not a lot of people wanted to take food home or eat it the next day. :(

    That was not really anything on Lucille's but this is literally the only negative thing I encountered. My suggestion would be to ask Lucille's to better explain the quantity of each item on a buffet and really scale down depending on your occasion.

    Overall, we where extremely pleased with Lucille's as our full service wedding buffet dinner for our back yard rustic BBQ reception. We would use them again for any party in the future and recommend them to anyone. A+

    If I could give a better rating I would! Catering was excellent! They arrived on time, were completely professional & so kind! We are absolutely in love with their services & cannot wait for our next event so we can cater from them again! The food? ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! Evenly cooked, everything tasted exactly the same even when reheated! I have no complains at all! Best catering decision we’ve ever made!

    I am so happy Lucilles catered my wedding! They were very quick to respond, and very accommodating to my requests. The food was absolutely delicious, and I received many compliments from guests with how good everything tasted. Plus, it was surprisingly affordable for how much food we ordered! I would highly recommend to anyone that Lucilles should cater their event! You won't be disappointed, I guarantee!

    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!

    This was for a retirement. The service was professional in all areas. The catering folks setup the food - lots of delicious food. From my first phone call and the assistance I received when I had questions - to the ease of payment - confirmation of order, etc.. Perfect, friendly service in every way. The take home boxes were an added plus along with the suckers. The food - fabulous!!

    We absolutely loved Lucille's! The service was excellent, the setup was on time and the portions were way more than expected. The price was reasonable and we were very impressed with the service. I am resigning as the HR manager at the Pomona Target location but I have left communication with the next HR Manager to be sure to give you guys a call again next year to set up catering before Thanksgiving. Really nice job guys!
