Bryan has clearly lost his mind. Lucky’s is amazing and not expensive. Everyone can see the prices online, no need to comment. People just want to hear about the food, which is delicious Bryan. I go regularly, sparkling clean, great service and most importantly, exceptional deli fare.

Lived out here 6 years and have never been able to find a good/Jewish Deli, but luckily we landed on Lucky's today and couldn't be happier! Great Tuna Melt, Coleslaw, and most importantly Matzah Ball Soup, we will most definitely be back!💯🤝

Wonderful matzo ball soup! Wonderful pastrami on a grilled everything bagel with mustard! The egg salad and pimento cheese in the deli case looked awesome! I ate the delish oatmeal cookie on the way home. 😄

Great lunch spot! Came in for lunch with my husband and son. I got a Turkey sandwich with matzah ball soup and hubby got the tuna melt with the matzah ball soup and we were both throughly impressed. The icing on the cake was everyone's smiling faces! We will definitely be back and you should go too!

Pleasant atmosphere and friendly service. I was anxiously anticipating my nice juicy red rare roast beef sandwich on pumpernickel and a bowl of garlicky dill pickles but -- alas and alack -- roast beef was just ok ... No pumpernickel bread ... No seeded rye ... No knish ...one bland dill pickle. Not the most memorable Jewish Deli I've visited!

Out of this world Reubens. Order the 50/50 for half pastrami, half corned beef. Great staff and service too.

Good, classic deli. They run a different special every day, so check their Facebook page before heading in.

Consistently good food and service. Go a bit early if you prefer to avoid a crowd.

Delightful place. The best pastrami I have had in a long time. Moist, flavorful, melt in your mouth pastrami. Their pickles are sour and amazing. Knowledgeable staff. FYI, i went to Katz deli in NYC a month ago and this pastrami Is better.

Hot dog was cold so i cant judge that well--- not the delis fault at all, delivery, but for it being cold it was pretty good, great bun. Italian was good, im an expert on hoagies and this one was pretty solid. Very finely chopped lettuce Good bread. Very unique they use a spicy mayo vs peppers which is pretty cool. Id get it again but 20$ is a lil steep for a footlong sub. The rueben was not good at all. The bread was decent but the rest is bad. My pastrami was thin cut but it was not well made. Very dry, not fatty Really dissatisfying pastrami, actually some of the worst ive rver had and the rest of the reuben was not great either. There is no good pastrami here

My husband and I absolutely LOVE Lucky’s. The food is always on point and they seriously have the nicest freaking staff. You don’t expect much from counter service, but they always go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and make sure you have everything you need. We recently moved away from Durham and make it a point to visit anytime we’re back in town. Always great!

That salmon sandwich was awesome! The cheesecake with a sour cream top was one of the best slices I've had out in a long time. My first time in today, definitely a great spot and I look forward to going back.

The line that reaches out the door should tell you a little something. If that doesn't clue you in... grab a Reuben and side of the potatoe salad, you wont be disappointed. I'll be going back to try that great looking meatball sandwich!

Good food. Probably the best Reuben sandwich I've had in Durham so far. Wish they had combo deals for chips and drinks but most delis don't so that's ok.

An authentic deli in a restored historical building. Staff was nice, atmosphere was awesome, & food was so delicious. This is not your typical sandwich shop, it's much more than that.

Best pastrami sandwich ever... Well it's a damn fine one anyway. Best I've seen in the Triangle. Matzo ball soup is stellar as well.

The matzo ball soup is the only thing I want when I'm sick. It's awesome and totally worth it.
