A Sure Bet for Award-Winning Southern BBQ: Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que to Open at Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas

Lucille’s Second Location in Las Vegas to Open on August 19


LAS VEGAS, Nev. (Aug. 13, 2013) – Building on the resounding success of its first Las Vegas-area restaurant at The District at Green Valley Ranch in Henderson, Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que will open a second restaurant in the city of Las Vegas at Red Rock Resort on August 19. This location brings the number of Lucille’s’ restaurants to 18 throughout California, Arizona and Nevada.

Lucille’s serves award-winning, savory, Southern-style food and is known for its signature slow-smoked barbeque, flavorful appetizers, soups, salads, burgers, sides, and desserts, served with a large helping of down-home, friendly service, plus entertaining Live Blues in its Flying Pig lounges.  The restaurant will be located within Red Rock Resort off restaurant row facing Charleston Boulevard. Hours of operation are 11am to midnight Sunday through Thursday, and from 11am to 1am on Friday and Saturday.

“We so appreciate the warm welcome we’ve received at our Henderson Lucille’s and look forward to bringing our authentic Southern food and hospitality to Red Rock Resort,” said Craig Hofman, president, Hofman Hospitality Group. “While Las Vegas offers a tremendous amount of dining options, we believe that we’ll find even more fans in the area, who love our low and slow cooking approach centered around our genuine Southern Pride smoker, plus our wide variety of regional Southern menu items.”

Lucille’s founder, Craig Hofman, opened the first restaurant in Long Beach, Calif., in 1999 but not before a two-year journey through the South to find the best BBQ. At the center of all of his restaurants is a Southern Pride smoker where Grade A prime rib brisket, ribs and more are smoked low and slow to perfection with a variety of authentic sauces from different regions around the South.

Driven by the philosophy of “Serving the best Bar-B-Que with the finest Southern hospitality,” Lucille’s has won many awards and honors, including dozens of local “Best of” awards in each of its markets.

“We are thrilled to welcome Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que to our dining line-up,” said Mark Tricano, vice president and general manager, Red Rock Resort. “We are big fans of Lucille’s menu and since we announced joining forces, our guests have been eagerly awaiting its arrival.”
