We were traveling through Greensboro and "lucky" enough to get lunch reservations at Lucky 32. I had asparagus soup, corn and artichoke fritters, the creamy grits, and kale with peas. Of course, I had strawberry shortcake for dessert. It was a real treat. Everything was fresh and delicious. Always, Lucky 32 is a treat and our Sunday lunch proved to... More

OK, so yet again, I found myself stuck in Cary with no plane back out to California Nirvana til 6:40pm. OMG, the thought of sitting int the Admiral's club eating prezels for 4 hours is just excruciatingly unthinkable. Voila! A quick Yahoo search, and within a third of a mile, I make a hard right into the parking lot at... More

I'm not a fan of the type of food they serve, but it is close to my company, so they always have luncheons there. Service has always been good. The one thing I always order has always been good. Nice ambiance in the restaurant. I've never been to the bar side. So, if southern nouveau cuisine is your thing, go... More

Not that we don't like Chinese food but we wanted southern food. When we looked this place up we were so happy to see it was a great place!!! We really enjoyed it and would go back the next time we visit that area.

Great food, great service. I had very good skillet fried chicken and collards. The batter and moistness and seasoning of the fried chicken was fabulous. The grease seemed stale so the taste of the cast iron did not come thru. My collards were well seasoned, very nice. New spot for us, will be back.

Great restaurant for unique southern cooked meals. Clean restaurant, safe Cary location, but definitely on the mid to higher end price wise. Doesn't matter if it's catfish, meatloaf, fried pickles (try the voodoo sauce!) or a pulled pork sandwich, you just can't go wrong here. Don't get me wrong, I haven't tried everything on their menu, but when I'm in... More

It's been several years since I've eaten here and was looking forward to going back. But this time, the good wasn't as good as before and the wait staff a bit rude and rushed. The fried green tomatoes were mediocre at best. All of the servings of the entrees were small and over priced. We were seated at a back... More

What a poor job we did of representing our restaurant and our mission to you during your visit. Our staff should be experienced as nothing other than friendly, attentive, and prompt. I'm so very disappointed that we were perceived as anything else. It would be my pleasure to speak more with you about your trip and make it up to... More

Lucky 32 has maintained a high standard of food and service since we first visited 8 years ago. I had a salad that was fresh and crunchy @ $11.00 The French Toast looked very tasty. And my husband's burger was perfect. We all shared a dessert the chocolate brownie a la mode. It was even better than the last time.... More

But filled with old people. By far the best restaurant we have found in Cary/Raleigh. Outstanding service and the prices are very reasonable for the food. Wine by the bottle is a great price here. I bring all business meetings here for dinner.

Three of us for a business dinner had a great meal. I highly recommend their stuffed olive martini. It is surveys with ice bits floating in the cocktail whick makes and keeps it very cold. Their steaks were awesome. Pretty decent wine list and a good bartender too.
