Lucille’s Smokehouse & BBQ New Brunch Menu

March 28, 2017

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI was recently invited to Lucille’s Smokehouse & BBQ at Del Amo to sample the new Brunch Menu.

Anyone familiar with my website already knows I’m a big fan of Lucille’s. I’ve dined there regularly since they opened for business and I always bring visiting family and friends in for a meal.

The substantial menu offers something for everyone, the portions are generous, the quality is consistent, the staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and it’s just a really fun place to eat.

While the menu occasionally features new or seasonal items, I couldn’t imagine the food getting any better. Boy, was I wrong. The brunch dishes I sampled were extraordinary and there is something for every taste profile.

South Bay Weekend Guide

March 23, 2017

Monday was the official first day of spring…. but have you noticed how many trees, shrubs and flowers that don’t normally blossom until April or May are already in bloom? Our local terrain is lush and green and bursting with color. It’s amazing how one saturating winter can completely transform the landscape. It’s not over yet, either – the forecast calls for a mostly cloudy weekend with a chance of showers on Saturday. So keep your raincoats, umbrellas and boots handy because there are a lot of fun events scheduled over the next few days that you don’t want to miss!
