Lucky Duck is in a strip mall that is fairly new – there’s also a Mexican restaurant we’ll definitely be hitting up in the very near future! Inside it’s definitely a sports bar feel and very popular – we were there on a week night and it was packed.
They don’t have a full website – so here are some shots of their menu. There are some fun things to choose from – Taco Pizza, Deep Fried Oreos and lots of sandwiches that they put their own Ducky spin on.
I was fascinated by the Duckettes ($6) – homemade potato croquettes that are garlic mashed potatoes, bacon and chives – breadcrumbed and fried.
Inside tasty mashed potatoes! Overall the Duckettes were fine – maybe some cheese inside and a sour cream based sauce would have been a little better. I liked them but not sure I would get them again.
My friend Lou is very picky with what she eats and she wanted PLAIN fries – luckily that’s what they had for her. So she was happy about that.
She also got wings – again – plain. ($8.75 for 10) She liked them. While her wings were super simple – they have a lot of options – with dry rubs: ghostbuster, cajun, cowbell and ranch, with sauces: duckin’ hot, spicy garlic, hot, fancy, spicy garparm, medium, mild, quackin, barbecue and garlic parmesan.
I went for the Mac N’ Quackin ($8) which was their homemade Mac N’ Cheese with fried chicken bites and their Quackin Sauce.
Unfortunately I was REALLY disappointed here. I’m a mac n’ cheese connoisseur and this wasn’t great. There was really no sauce – it was just noodles barely held together by melted cheese. It was really dry.
Then the chicken – it was pounded so thin with such a thick breading – you really didn’t even taste the chicken. I took a close up photo to show it a little better. I picked all the chicken off and the barely ate the macaroni because it was so dry. I guess that’s one way to combat poor choices for my diet is to barely eat it!!! (This was before I actually started Weight Watchers.)
Why Should You Go? The wings looked good and I’m sure other things are good – the place was packed. I just didn’t care for the Mac & Cheese.
