After seeing Lucky’s Café on Diners, Drive-ins, & Dives this past week we headed off to check it out ourselves today since it’s close to our house. Lucky’s is special because they make everything from scratch; everything. Even the hot sauce, jams, salad dressings, and beads.
We took the Guy Fieri route and had the Mac in Cheese, Ruben, and Biscuits & Gravy; then decided to have desserts too – the Cherry Bomb Truffle, the vanilla Bean Cupcake, and the Chocolate Dipped Toasted Coconut Macaroons.. We left feeling well taken care of for an affordable 64$.
Lucky's uses only the freshest herbs and produce. In the summer months they even have a garden and grow a lot of their own. They even grow their own yeats for the homemade breads they use on their sandwiches. The one they are using now the waitress told me was eight years old. When we were leaving they were getting a deliver of fresh local produce.
My son and I pay attention to all this as he intends to go to culinary school after graduation and would someday like to open his own 5-star dive or diner.
