We discovered this little gem last month and have been back twice! They utilize local farmers so the menu changes often making every visit a fresh experience. But the real highlight is how they take favorite southern dishes and add an unexpected twist. Whether it is the voodoo pig bread, or cheesy grits, the Voodoo sauce, the bacon wrapped meatloaf,...

We had a group of 14 ages 15 to 83 and the event was very enjoyable. The only thing that did not hit the mark was the chicken and dumplings which was more like a soup.

Thank you for the feedback. Our version of Chicken and Dumplings is a unique concept with emphasis on the peppery broth as a source of much of the flavor. Many guests find it great for the colder wintery season. If you ever feel like a dish does not live up to your expectations, we would love to serve you something... More

We've all been there, you make a reservation for a specific time on the busiest night if the year and still wait for 30 additional minutes or more for your table. Not at Lucky 32.

Stumbled upon lucky 32 on New Year's Eve while browsing opentable for a last minute reservation, and thankfully I had not made plans earlier. The atmosphere, food, drinks, and service were perfect. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice meal, in a nice restaurant with plates that are not "plated". One thing I would like to... More

We have eaten here twice and have found the menu to be very creative. Being a ny'er was not expecting the quality of choices on the menu. Tap beer selections were very appealing as well

Thank you! Our draft beer selection is all local to North Carolina. The Triangle has become one of the most exciting places in the country in regards to it's craft beer scene and we try to take as best advantage of that as we can. See you again!

Lucky 32 has ventured too far into organic chef-Dome. It look me a long time to pick an entree I thought I would like. I chose a "pulled lamb " dish that just was too strange.

Susan, I am sorry you found our pulled lamb on Johnny cakes strange.

Kitty, Be sure to stop by in the next few weeks to try out our Mid-Winter Carnival menu! It is a guest and staff favorite alike. It features Braised Pork Shank, Big Easy Gumbo, Eggplant Creole, and Red beans and rice with Andoulle Sausage. Oysters are also prominent on this menu as well. Hope to see you soon! Greg Miller...
