First time... And there will be more! The fries green tomatoes were thinly sliced, delicately fried and delicious with the voodoo sauce! The pulled pork with johnny cakes was the perfect blend of spicy and sweet and the shrimp and grits was well seasoned. Can't wait for the return trip to try the rest of the menu!

So good, I ordered another entrée and took it back home with me to Virginia. Travelled to NC for visit to LDS Temple. Ate here for a late lunch. Had the grits, pulled pork and gizzards. The food is excellent, absolutely delicious. The waiter was great too. Will be coming back.

Had a vendor take us to dinner and we definitely were not impressed. I ordered the Kentucky ribeye which wasn't very tender and that's hard when it's a ribeye. Green beans were regular ol steamed beans and the deviled eggs were just ok. Not worth $28 but average at best. Vendor ordered salt and pepper ribeye medium well. Let me... More

We stopped for a late lunch after an exhausting day of shopping. Our server was outstanding and he treated us like long lost friends. The grilled salmon and the pulled pork entries were excellent and our desserts were yummy. We definitely plan to return to this com convenient venue.

We eat at Lucky 32 at least monthly, either after attending church nearby Sunday, or when shopping in Cary on Saturday. Both are busy times but the service is still excellent and we are not rushed. Lucky 32's food is simply amazing. Ingredients are as locally sourced as possible and it shows in their taste. The seasonal menus show amazing... More

Went here for a business dinner set up by a large local business. Arrived and let the hostess know we were there. She proceeded to ask for the number in our party, which should have been known. She would not seat us until the shuttle had brought all of us to the restaurant and we had a final head count.... More

Oh boy...it sounds like we made several big mistakes during your visit that are out of character for our restaurant and our promises we make to our guests. If folks leave our restaurant feeling anything other than full, happy, and appreciated, we've not accomplished what we set out to do. My email address is gmiller@qwrh.com. If you are inclined to...

We go to Lucky 32 all the time and I have a number of go-to dishes I love there. I really like their salads and chicken crepes. The kids menus are healthy and quality. I love the circle tables for large groups so everyone can talk. It's a local favorite.

What we like about Lucky 32 is its changing menu. There are some constants but the more interesting fare is the seasonal fare. This is one of our "go to" spots.
