Lucky’s Drive-In

Drive-In | Hamburgers
One of the best

Lucky’s Drive In, located off of Pacific Avenue in Tacoma Washington, is a diamond in the rough. The tiny red and white striped shack serves classic American burgers, shakes, hot dogs, and tator tots. The small menu has allowed Lucky’s to become expert at what it cooks. The burgers are served on classic or sourdough buns with onions, pickles, mustard, and Lucky’s special sauce – an almost chipotle flavored dressing that is unique and delicious. Tator tots are the side here, and the chili tots are wonderful, smothered in hearty house made chili and loaded with cheese. The result: a gooey, slightly spicy mess that definitely requires a fork – yum. The milkshake menu is extensive and my Oreo milkshake was creamy and satisfying.

Order at the window, pick up at another, and scarf your meal down either on red and white picnic tables or in your car. The service is fast and friendly, and the food is scrumptious – I will definitely eat here again.
