My teen daughter and I always dine here when it's just the two of us. The menu is always changing and focuses on updated regional cuisine that is locally sourced. The food is always delicious, fresh, and innovative. The service is top notch. A very nice restaurant that is also family-friendly. We especially love the pimento cheese appetizer.

The last time we were in the area, we ate at Lucky 32. I knew I wanted another opportunity. We were there today, and I was not disappointed. I had the cucumber-avocado soup which was perfect on a hot day. Next I had the summer vegetable bow ties. The vegetables were amazing. If we hadn't been on the road, I... More

Well, it's been a good 10 years since we've dined here, but, lo and behold, there it still stands, surrounded by new buildings, subdivisions and retail plazas, so we stopped in for lunch/brunch. Service was excellent, almost outstanding. Food was as good as ever, with a few standards like burgers and dinner salads. Dining room is very comfortable, price was... More

Menu changes as the Farmers Market changes. Food is fresh and prepared well. The service is great and the decor is modern but comfortable.

Our seasonal menu changes every 6 weeks or so and focuses on local fresh produce from North Carolina. This current menu shows off delicious local peaches and heirloom tomatoes. The Local Peach Hand Pie with sorghum syrup and housemade vanilla ice cream is brand new and a must try! Greg Miller Service Manager Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen More

My husband and I had lunch here today, it was amazing! I loved the menu, which offers something for everyone. At the same time has a menu unique to any other establishment. We started with the Voodoo Pig's Bread......delicious! Just the right amount of heat, hot enough to satisfy the heat lovers, but not so hot to deter the milder... More

We always sell it in our restaurant in Cary and Greensboro, but we are also offering it in many local grocery stores. Come see us again when you visit North Carolina!

In mid-July, I traveled to Cary, NC, to reunite with my old college roommates. We chose the comfortable outdoor patio at Lucky 32 for our long awaited visit together. This was my first visit to Cary and Lucky 32 and loved it! The restaurant itself is tastefully decorated with a modern flair and comfortable ambience. Meanwhile, the spacious outdoor patio... More

I've been here many times and have never been disappointed. The bread they serve is delicious. My favorite items on the regular menu are the black bean cakes and the voodoo pork on the johnny cakes.

Ate there late. 8:30ish. Had the tomato heirloom with goat cheese. Not a bad flavor but the tomatoes were not all that ripe. Overpriced at 9 bucks. Had the deviled eggs and ham-a $3.00 side dish. Nothing special. Also tried the voodoo pig bread and it was way too spicy. Of course how "hot" or spicy you like food is... More
