Lucky's Lands a "Doggone" Good Location in Emory Village

Burger joint coming to Emory Village

Roswell's Lucky's Burger & Brew is opening a new location in Emory Village. Lucky's plans to open later this summer in the former Starbucks Coffee on North Decatur Road. Lucky's ownership will soon begin renovations on the roughly 2,000 square foot space with plans to be open late this summer.  

Starbucks closure is believed to have resulted from their Barnes & Noble location on Emory's campus being so close as well as the chain's plans to open a new location, with a drive thru, at nearby Suburban Plaza

The original Lucky's opened in 2010 in Roswell on Alpharetta Street.  Owners Ernie & Diane Geyer named the restaurant after their golden retriever, "Lucky."  A second Lucky's opened last year in the former Slack's near LA Fitness at TOWN Brookhaven.

Lucky's serves a menu of assorted burgers, salads, wings and other non-beef sandwiches.  

Amazingly, even with seemingly endless burger joints in town, Emory Village has been without a burger-centric restaurant since the closure of Wonderful World Burger Burger & Fry in 2012

In addition to Lucky's, a number of new restaurants are relatively new to Emory Village including Doc Chey's Dragon Bowl (fka Doc Chey's Noodle House), Slice & Pint, Ink & Elm and most recently, Ali's Cookies.

Wow, hard to believe a Starbucks would actually close. However, the Lucky’s does seem like a good fit for that location.

Definitely miss that Emory Village Starbucks! The baristas at the Barnes and Noble one consistently have a bad attitude and are rude to customers. Plus, they don't make drinks as well. :( But, good to see something move in that empty space!

They had better work on their food before rapid over expansion. Their Town Brookhaven resto is not good after three visits.

Starbucks struggled with parking as well which is still a large problem over there when you are not just catering to students. The neighborhood people have no where to park and when school is out (December, June, July etc) it is DEAD around there. And this should surely be the nail in Burgerfi's coffin over at Emory Point.

Burgerfi is better than Lucky's, IMO. I've had Lucky's at TB and while the service was nice I wasn't wowed by the food. I will say that I do like that they offer a smaller burger and fries option for those that want their fix but don't want a massive undertaking.

Burgerfi can't hold a candle to Lucky's. Theyhave great service at the Brookhaven location and much more value for the money spent. If it weren't so inconvenient (I live in Midtown) I'd go much more often.

I like the bison burger or the grass fed burger at There Gastro Pub which is a couple doors down.

I may try Lucky's again in the future but my first visit to their Roswell location left me unimpressed with their bland food.
