Lucky's Burger & Brew will open its second location, this one in Town Brookhaven. Lucky's will open in the former Slack's Hoagie Shack, and plans to open "in the first quarter of the year."
Slack's at TOWN Brookhaven aimed to be higher end than its other, northeast locations, and after opening in 2010, failed to consistently attract business and closed in early 2012. Slack's closure was the first at the lifestyle center, but others including Stir Crazy and The Cup have since closed, each having been replaced by Here to Serve concepts: Smash and Shucks, respectively.
Ernie Geyer, Lucky's owner, of both the restaurant and the golden retriever for which the restaurant is named, opened the original Lucky's in 2010 on Alpharetta Street in Roswell.
If the Brookhaven location is anything like the Roswell spot, expect a retro look with portraits of Lucky. Lucky's is a casual, approachable burger joint, seemingly perfect for the growing number of young families in the area. Like Roswell, Lucky's will have a patio for outdoor dining, though I'm unsure if Brookhaven will allow for dogs on the patio, as are allowed in Roswell.
With all the food options in TOWN Brookhaven, burgers were amazingly enough not readily available other than at There or Smash. North Palm Beach-based BurgerFi was slated to open in the corner space opposite Smash but never started buildout, and eventually bailed on the project.
Do you think Lucky's will do well in Brookhaven? Who do you think is the weakest, least appealing restaurant in TOWN Brookhaven? What is the best restaurant in TOWN Brookhaven?
