The dining switcheroo at Red Rock Resort from Mexican to barbecue is in full swing with new details revealed including a Southern-style porch and two magnolia trees to provide extra indoor shade.

The former Cabo Mexican Restaurant will become Lucille's Smokehouse Bar-B-Que this summer. Three dining areas will be created, plus a bar and an enclosed 34-seat section they are calling a porch. It will be a more casual setting that includes upholstered rattan and wicker seating. A total of 380 diners can fill out the barbecue joint.

The mismatched seating extends to each dining area, the metal and wood chairs are composed of variant designs, textures and colors. A mock outdoors feel extends to the waiting area that will add a rustic feathered bench for patient diners.

Two artificial magnolia trees with a broad canopy of leaves are being constructed and will be unmissable focal points.

The barbecue chain continues the design look of its 15 other locations by adding found objects such as lamps and wall art. A broad collection of lighting fixtures place emphasis on burnished antique looks with aged brass and rust metal coloring. Tin ceiling tiles provide further metallic focus. The seemingly random accents are often calculated and custom table cloths are constructed to evoke a vintage feel.

And in a welcome move, a take out window on the casino floor is being included in the project proposal, steps away from the 87-square-foot meat smoker room.

Red Rock's previously faltered in hosting a barbecue joint. Salt Lick BBQ closed in 2009 and was replaced by Yard House located adjacent to the forthcoming Lucille's. An opening is excepted this summer.
