What's the fuss about? – So I finally go here after hearing stories from different co-workers. My manager and I split a Pastrami sandwich and an order of Zuccinni. Yes the order of zucchini was very extra extra large and tasty, the pastrami was extremely greasy and fatty. The sandwich was so greasy it made the paper holding it fall apart while I was eating it. I am jewish and I know how pastrami should look and taste and this wasn't good.
After all the blabla? about this restaurant ?Lucky Boys, I decided to stop for breakfast, lunch and diner and what a bust? had I known the individual doing the rating were mostly street people, the working class, Joe six-parks, blue-color types, I would not have eaten at this facility ?
To be fair to the restaurant I went to the facility two dozen times, at different time periods (early morning, afternoon and evenings). The story was the same each and every time.
Tasteless insipid, served in super huge burrito, or tasteless frostbite burgers, the clerks are rude, they look unclean- and the so call cooks out back look as if they just crossed the border from Mexico - simply stated the food was tasteless, very poor quality and extremely fattening - the ground meat look and taste similar to the discounted meat sold at Giant super-market.
Modestly acknowledged: the food, taste, service were below standard ? mediocre at best and at each and every time.
Insanely large Brkfst Burritos -Tasteeey! – OK- I'm not one to just hop on and write a review, and the guy that wrote the other reviews has issues! ( his Mom Beat him for Krayst sakes, wow! . But this place dishes out an amazing bkfast dont be shocked the bkfast burrito is 5$, cause it is a dos manos style burrito ( i guess about 4-5 eggs in there) i get 1 / and chopp it threeways at the office, stick it in the micro for 20 seconds..bkfst for 3 days, no joke! ( oh yea...KNOW what you want at the counter or they get ticked off - Fugger! )
In and Out on steroids – The thing about Lucky Boy is that it's a L.A. legend! The breakfast burritos, as everyone has mentioned, are like MONSTERS you've gotta love. All that meat and cheese and egg really grow on you, really, and make it mildly impossible to pay attention to ANYTHING a professor is saying in class...but it's GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD though.
Just go there – i go there on average about 3 times a week. for 6.93, you get the breakfast of champions, a breakfast burrito and a cherry coke. this always makes me feel better in the morning. also the hours are great, so if your board or hungry late at night, lucky boy is there to feed you... legendary
oh man, i almost pooped how good this was – Listen to me, fellow americans! lucky boy is freaking awesome. lets cut the ca-rap, shall we? you get the breakfast burrito. its freaking a monster. a freaking monster. i mean, literally, it came to life, and attacked me. the burrito is egg, cheese, your choice of bacon, bacon, or bacon (f the haters, its about bacon) and hash browns. HASH BROWNS. not this potato ca-rap, but hash browns. the kind mother used to make me when she stopped beating me. this burrito is huge, but i still buy an order of small chili cheese fries? why you ask? well f you, seriously. asking me stupid questions. CHILI CHEESE FRIES MAN! what do you not understand? the chili? the cheese? the man? tha man will get you, dang. and they put a whole pound of bacon in there. somewhere in oklahoma is a pig sitting there thinking "man, i want to be in that burrito" but you realize he's talking about having s e-x with the burrito. do you really want pig junk in your burrito? no thank you senator! their coke there is great too. or is it pepsi? either way, i have a burrito, chili, and cold stuff. and let me tell you, i spill on myself all the time. so if you like spilling, and you like bacon and eggs, make your way to lucky boy. you won't be disappointed. unless you go to trade joes, which is accross the street, and some hippies try and sell you some all natural ca-rap. i'm all natural honey! i don't need no added preservatives peanuts to tell me how to be! ah do what i want!
best breakfast burrito anywhere – i go there simply for the breakfast burrito. it's big, its loaded, and it's a great value like me on a saturday night. tops breakfast burrito is a joke in camparison. they give you some kinda green hot sauce on the side. if you don't like spicy, don't use it (it is very spicy).
Totally awesome, down to earth place – I wish I could make it back to Lucky Boy more often than I do -- man, these burgers are good. If you're a fan of that drive-in taste -- your cheeseburger tastes like it's picked up all the really good stuff from the grill -- and a huge container of french fries, you'll love Lucky Boy. It's kind of like a more authentic, neighborhoody, one-of-a-kind In-n-Out, if you will. Plus you can get pastrami burritos or whatever else strikes your fancy.
Hat's off to the tuna melt!! – Lucky Boy's is an excellent fast food place. All the dishes I have sampled, are delicious. I expecially love the Tuna Melts! This place is open late nights, which is good if you are hungry and need a quick snack. I highly reccomend eating here.
Must Have FOOD! – Some really good food. The breakfast burrito is a definate must have. The pastrami burgers are also highly recommended, along with the fried zucchini (the small is plenty to share with people). Portions are generous and the price is right. Have to go and give this place a try.
