    Lucky 32 never disappoints. The wait staff and managers are always so friendly and the food is always consistently delicious. I love how they switch out a few items based on the season so as to provide a variety in the menu. We have been eating here for many years and week after week we still return. Thank you for offering a great restaurant in Cary!

    Still our favorite restaurant in Cary, even if the service was a bit “off” this visit. Long wait between app and main course, one incorrect side dish, and tiny bread plate compared to tables around us. Still, it IS Lucky 32.

    We were celebrating my daughter and son in law’s first wedding anniversary. We found the cocktails to be spot on delicious and were the fried okra. The fried green tomatoes were good but did not benefit from the pile of bacon on them. My trout was delicious and my guests enjoyed the e spicy chicken sandwich and sautéed veggies. I would suggest the web site not ask if you are celebrating a special occasion if they do not provide a special treat though. That was a bit disappointing.
