Dallas Observer's Description

The large, '50s-style diner serves great sandwiches, salads and veggie tacos, but the real draws here are the crispy outside, juicy inside chicken-fried steak and chicken-fried chicken and hot cornbread. Fresh, steamed vegetables are served on the side and vary by day, but staples and favorites are always available, including the potatoes mashed with skins intact, then smothered in cream gravy. The service is friendly and quick-thinking even when the late-night and Sunday breakfast diners crowd the tables and pack the booths.

  • Oh Hey Dallas on 03/27/12

    The "garden of eatin" omelet is Delish!

  • Stephen W. on 07/24/10

    Lucky's chicken fried chicken waffle is one of the best kept secrets in all of Dallas. Get it fully loaded (butter, syrup, gravy, etc). Seriously! You will not be disappointed.

  • Jonathan S. on 04/17/10

    The breakfast food is amazing. If you happen to be a smidge hungover, their Bloody Mary will snap you back into shape! Plus, the staff is so super nice and always make you feel welcome!

  • Robert Dwight C. on 11/05/11

    Eggs, bacon and coffee are as good as the staff is friendly!

    Must try breakfast here. I hear the biscuits & gravy are fab.
