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.
