After a couple of fails (yes, waiter at the Irish pub on the N. Central Expressway, I would be talking about you. 45 minutes to get a menu is unacceptable. Having to get up and get them myself is ridiculous. $7.95 for a glass of house red after all that waiting is robbery. Our second waiter was much better but did we have to have two? ) at finding a decent place to eat in Dallas we did what any smart person would do. We asked a local where a good place to have breakfast was. In the parking lot of the frou frou Starbucks. She looked at us a little strange at first but she got over it. We don't normally look like serial killers but we hadn't had our coffee yet.
She had 2 suggestions. The first, was if we wanted to eat hardy food. The second, was if we wanted to eat chi chi food. (her words).
Now, I like chi chi food as well as the next person but we wanted hardy for the drive back to Houston.
So hardy it was.
That took us to Lucky's.
I was totally charmed from the first moment we walked in the door. As MaryAnne texted me....Lucky's is Fab!
We were meet by the sweetest and smartest gentleman ever.
Gentleman: Welcome to Lucky's. Sir, I see you brought your daughter for breakfast.
JR: Hahaha (after a quelling look from me) yes I did.
Gentleman: How about you take that nice place by the window.
As you can see by my half eaten (sorry I was really hungry and forgot to take the picture before I started to chow down.) huevos rancheros. The food was hardy. JR had the migas. He loved it though he wasn't as thrilled with their refried beans. They were a little spicy for him. We didn't trade because the refried beans were not vegetarian but I had extra black beans that I was willing to share so he got filled up.
What can I say about the wait staff? Wonderful! Menu = check, water = check, coffee = YES and plenty of it!!!!, hot food = check.
All and all a great experience in a place that I felt at home in. How could I not? Look at all the paintings of dogs in the first picture.
If you are ever in Dallas stop into Lucky's. It is well worth it.
