If you're going to the all-you-can-eat Sunday southern brunch at Lillie's Q in Brea, you're going to need bring at least two of the following items: a huge appetite, stretchy pants, and a wheelbarrow to roll yourself out. Oh yeah, it's also a big plus if you love juicy, slow smoked, melt-in-your-mouth brisket.
During my initial visit to Lillie's Q, I was salivating at the thought of trying their brisket, which was not yet available. The prime brisket is now the crown jewel of the Sunday brunch offering. Listed at $33/lb on the menu, the brisket has all the makings of respectable Texas-style cow. The outside crust (bark) is heavy on the black pepper, and the peach smoke flavor is subtle yet aromatic.
The short order kitchen menu includes three different types of omelettes to go along with several chef specials. The chicken n' waffles and the Southern eggs benedict are highly recommended.
Brunch also includes mini versions from Lillie Q's dessert menu: banana pudding, cobbler, build-your-own peach shortcake, and even chocolate stout (yes, beer) brownies. There's even a chocolate fountain with assorted dippers. If your stretchy pants aren't already bursting at the seams at this point, you can wash it all down with endless champagne and mimosas.
