Road our bikes to Lucky's on a Sunday morning. We didn't have to wait to be seated. The restauarant is a step-up diner. Waitstaff were very friendly. Food was very average, might go back.

This is what a diner should always be like. Bustling yet efficient, the place hums with activity but they get it all done right. Servers are outstanding and obvious veterans of the restaurant. Lots of tough choices on the menu but all are delicious. The coffee comes regularly and without your needing to ask. Pre-meal biscuits are just fantastic. A... More

I ate here twice during my short trip to Dallas. I love the meatloaf at this restaurant. This is an old Dallas hang-out. Everything on the menu is good. Comfort food.

You've probably driven by it 100 times. Just above Lemmon on oak lawn, and on the corner, this is a great neighborhood place, at any meal, but worth stopping by if your driving in the area. Look to the side street to park. At breakfast, there are great , great fresh choices, and anywhere that serves applewood smoked bacon in... More

Good breakfast! But, you better hang-on tight to your husband! Our server was more than friendly - especially to my husband! He all but sat in his lap in our booth while chatting intently with him... We still laugh about our experience! Every time we're in Dallas, I can't help but ask my husband if he feels like "getting Lucky"!

LOVED the biscuits!! This place was great; I love that it is farm to table but still retains a classic diner-ish casual charm. An excellent place to eat some breakfast, read the news, and get a start to your day. I really enjoyed the pot roast hash and my partner equally enjoyed his enchiladas.

Get there early on Sunday, the place is busy! Quaint neighborhood feel with good portions and good food. We had the French toast, pot roast hash and eggs and breakfast tacos. Nice size portions, the French toast was amazing. I wish they would have said on the menu there were green peppers in the pot roast hash since I don't... More

Breakfast all day at Lucky's Local Farm to Table...my kinda place! My partner had pot roast hash topped with two eggs. Nice big chunks of pot roast and their fired potatoes plus cheese...really more like a stew. Very good. My omelet was well cooked and I was able to get Swiss cheese even though it wasn't on the menu.

Fantastic food.. service could have been better. Very crowded, but not a long wait (10 minutes). They offered coffee while you wait. The food quality and taste was very good. The order came out disjointed; items missing and reverses; we wanted everything on a cheeseburger except pickles, it came out with pickles and no tomatoes. Mimosas and Bloody Mary's were... More
