When we visited Atlanta for a concert last weekend, we had a chance to have lunch with friends at Lucky’s. I’ll tell you that after a warm afternoon baseball game, there was no better place in the northern ‘burbs to go! A family-friendly sports bar with an ample menu and great atmosphere, we loved our visit. Even mid-afternoon there was a 20-minute wait, but we managed to pass the time with a selection of local craft beers and a few tosses of cornhole bags on the back lawn. There’s also a large “party pavilion” outside, complete with large-screen TV, that seats as many as 60 people! You have the option of sitting in the restaurant or on the dog-friendly patio and we opted for the former.
Surrounded by dog pictures and plenty of TV’s, we perused the large menu. I was really impressed with the appetizer selection and ordered the fried pickles – my wife never turns them down! Crispy and hot, they’re served with ranch or blue cheese for dipping and are some of the best I’ve had! I’d have loved the fried pimento cheese bites and/or chili cheese tots, but I had a burger to get to. The table ordered a variety of burgers and wings so we could get a good taste of the most important stuff. The Memphis Blood Hound was cooked to order and topped with pickled red onion, cheddar cheese, bacon and sweet and spicy mango BBQ sauce. It was awesome in every way and left me with no regrets on my choice. The signature is the award-winning Georgia Dawg Pounder topped with a fried pimento cheese ball, red pepper jelly and mayo – whoa! While I would have loved fresh-cut fries, both of their regular and sweet potato fries were pretty good.
An order of wings came out plump, hot and crispy. They were smothered in medium sauce, but had a serious kick to them as you had a few! They were really good though and I would definitely get them again as an appetizer or meal again. The kids were thrilled with their burger and chicken fingers so you know it’s a place everyone can enjoy. I saw other sandwiches and salads come from the kitchen and everything looked fresh and delicious. Really, there’s a ton to try and we can’t wait to go back again!
