This restaurant is near La Quinta. Stopped by for a late lunch after flying into town. An unexpected find that turned into a wonderful meal! My husband had the pulled pork with Johnny cakes and I had the puled Lamb also with johnny cakes. We also had buttermilk fried green tomatoes with bacon and voodoo sauce. Great service. Very nice...

Lucky 32 has become one of our favorite restaurants in the Raleigh area. They have the best "southern home cooked" meals. Everything is delicious! Their menu changes quarterly and we have never disappointed. Love this place!

My husband and I reserved a table here earlier in the week as we were coming from out of town for a concert at Booth (which is only about 10 mins away). I was expecting a bit more formal and a bit less hustle and noise but it was a Sat. Night and they were full. We were glad we... More

I had always thought this was a Chinese restaurant when my son chose it for his birthday dinner this year. Our rule is the birthday person chooses the meal for their celebration, no arguments allowed. Well we were surprised. It was a new southern cooking experience. My husband and I shared barbecue lamb on Johnny cakes and fried green tomatoes.... More

Nancy, I am thrilled that you and your family had a great time for such an important occasion like a birthday. It discourages me that you had heard bad things about our service, since it is such a point of pride for us, and I hope that we are able to prove those warnings wrong during all of your upcoming...

Ate here with some friends last night for the first time in several years. I had forgotten how much I enjoy the varied menu and seasonal (and locally sourced) selections. We had no problem getting a table, service was good, and the food was pretty good overall, though a bit mixed. The Meatloaf was outstanding (great flavor, crispy edge), the... More

My wife and I arrived late last Monday evening for dinner and walked over from the La Quinta behind them. I travel this area frequently but this was my first stop here. What a great find. Started with a New Bern Wedge Salad and thought about blue cheese instead of the house made Thousand Island. That would have been a... More

As I local I can sure recommend Lucky 32! We eat at this restaurant several times per month. They have a new menu/theme (along with permanent favorites!) every 6-8 weeks and it varies enough that the food is always fresh, fun, and southern. And I appreciate that they use food that is local, fresh, and in-season! The wait staff always... More

I was in Cary with a buddy and while waiting for them I decided I would give this place a try. I was seated after I had to get the hostesses attention (she was busy looking at her nails). My server came by a few minutes later and gave me a menu. I looked at it for about 10 minutes... More

Robert, It sounds like we miss-fired from start to finish during your visit. We train our staff to be prompt and attentive to all of our guests and we definitely missed the mark. I would love to speak with you more about your experience and hopefully we can repair our mistakes. My email address is gmiller@qwrh.com. I hope to hear... More
