Lucille's Smokehouse Bar-B-Que Launches a Restaurant Within a RestaurantFried chicken is as essential to Southern cooking as smoked meats, and no restaurant knows that better than Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que. Now Lucille’s has created the Chicken Shack, a restaurant within a restaurant, focusing on craveable buttermilk fried and smoked chicken specialties, premium sides and a special dessert. Guests can see and order the new Chicken Shack secret menu by using their smartphone to scan a QR code at the table or the welcome poster at any of the company’s 22 restaurants throughout California, and in Las Vegas and Tempe, Arizona.

“Comfort foods like fried chicken and barbecue are especially satisfying during this challenging time, and our new Chicken Shack menu delivers that comfort feeling with flavor and fun in our secret menu,” said Joan Hansen, director of marketing at Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que.
