As someone who has been to the best burger joints Atlanta has to offer the Vortex and Flip I have longed for a neighborhood place that provides good quality without the drive. We have been talking about trying Lucky’s for some time but have not had the opportunity. Well Saturday night was a perfect time to give it a shot. We were meeting another couple for dinner and wanted a nice affordable dinner in Roswell. Upon arriving we were told the wait would be 45 minutes which was a little long but we were still waiting for the other couple so we agreed. The wait was actually only about 15 minutes which is reasonable in Roswell. The menu has many delicious looking combination burgers also chicken wings and salads.
For our first visit to Lucky’s we all opted for the basic burger. The girls got the $7 special which is a 4 oz. burger fries and a drink. We both got the Pure Breed which is the basic burger. I got mine with Cheddar. My fiancé got the parmesan fries and I upgraded for the sweet potato fries. Our friends got the onion rings. The burgers are massive and come on a challah bun. The burgers were perfectly cooked and a nice blend of lean and fat. It was juicy just like a burger should be. My sweet potato fries were honestly the best I have had and came with blue cheese dressing for dipping. The dressing was a good consistency with chunks of cheese and made me want to try their wings on a future visit. My fiancés parmesan fries were nothing special as they just had grated parmesan on them. She ended up eating half of my sweet potato fries. The onion rings had a dipping sauce with them as well. We were all satisfied with our meal and more satisfied with the check. A nice touch was the owner or manager coming out and asking how our meal was. This makes me feel appreciated as a customer.
In conclusion I will make this place one of my regular spots to eat they have a nice beer selection and a menu that deserves to be tried. Next time I will try for the Chihuahua burger which has green chili, guacamole, pepper jack cheese and chipotle mayonnaise. It looked like spicy perfection.
