lucky bun original

The Lucky Bun burger is grilled and served on a torta roll, seasoned with a house marinade and blend of Asian spices.

We have Lucky Buns and you can too!

They’re not just burgers, they’re Lucky Buns. Our selection of burgers is inspired by the flavors that are the standouts in American fusion cuisine. From our Asian inspired  Original Lucky Bun, to the southwestern New Mexico Lucky Bun, or the real Americana Happy Cow Lucky Bun, our signature is the bun…a full bodied torta that stands up to our addicting aiolis and sauces.

Tom and "Lucky Girl" Nancy.

When people see the logo they ask why it doesn’t look like me. My reply is that it isn’t me. It is representative of the genesis of the business, and of our family.


My daughter-in-law, Mary, is Vietnamese and Lao and we have a shared love of writing and cooking. A number of years ago she asked me to read a short story she was working on. In the story the central character is an Asian girl named Kat. She works for her single father at his restaurant, a Chinese restaurant/truck stop, which is famous for his hamburger. The restaurant is named Lucky’s and the short story is titled Lucky Girl.


As I read the recipe in the story I asked Mary if this is a recipe she uses. She said she just made it up but had never tried it. So we did, and after some tinkering with the ingredients and processes, and perfecting the presentation, the Lucky Bun was born and Lucky Girl Café was created.


So the girl in the logo is a symbol of our family and our flagship sandwich. It is the blending of cultures, like our two little grand-daughters…our lucky buns!
