Great place! - Edit

Hubby and I stopped here while in town for a few days and we were so impressed! We wish we lived closer b/c this place is awesome.

They have vegan appetizers and vegan burgers and we loved everything we ordered! The seitan nuggets were my fav.

Great, cool environment, knowledgable and nice staff and lots of vegan beer!

Pros: Lots of vegan optionsq, Cool environment, Friendly, helpful staff

vegan paradise - Edit

There are vegan options for almost everything, including the Reuben, gyro, burgers...even vegan cheeses and mayo. The seitan nuggets & fried cauliflower are to die for -- perfectly seasoned and cooked. If I lived closer than 4 hrs away, I'd live here.

Pros: vegan dressings, cheeses, condiments, tons of options, cooked to perfection

Cons: too many IPA beers

Yummy Vegan Bar Food - Edit

Our go to is Seitan Nuggets breaded and tossed in buffalo with extra buffalo and vegan ranch on the side. Cauliflower Bites tossed in buffalo is s new favorite too!

Meatless Reuben on swirled eye with vegan cheese and 1000 island. This is amazing, especially with the traditional sauerkraut!

Plus, lots of craft beer on tap and food for your omnivore friends. Service is always great!

I would give it 5 stars if I could...

Could not trust the kitchen - Edit

I ordered the vegan breakfast tacos but received eggs and not sure what else. They offered to remake my order but I just didn't trust the kitchen so I chose not to eat anything. The server was apologetic but I was too freaked out to eat anything there.

Dayton Go To - Edit

Lucky's is definitely at Dayton go to. They have plenty of vegan and vegetarian options, but it's also an easy place to bring non veg friends/family to. Their seitan nuggets, as an appetizer, is super good and all of the other main dishes that I've tried have also been awesome.

On top of their great selection of alcoholic drinks, on Saturday's and Sunday's they also have a bloody mary bar!

Pros: Vegan Friendly, seitan

Vegan junk food heaven - Edit

We will drive an hour just to have dinner at Lucky's. We've tried almost everything but our go to are the buffalo seitan nuggets (with a side of vegan ranch) followed by the vegan Reuben without 'meat' extra vegan thousand island and the yummy crispy fries. The beer and wine selection are great too. Oh gosh almost forgot the vegan chilli is a must!!

Pros: Large selection of vegan food, Friendly staff that understand what vegan means

Love to Visit - Edit

This is the only restaurant in Dayton that I insist on going to whenever We are in town. When we visit my in-laws, this place is a must! My husband loves the chili, my daughter loves the hot dogs and I love it all. The seitan nuggets are great- it is not something I find anywhere else or would make at home.
I wish it was a stand alone restaurant and not a bar. I feel so weird having my kid in there. We only go for lunch so it isn't loud though and they are kid friendly.
If you are reading this and wondering whether to try Lucky's... Do it! You'll be glad you did.

Pros: They have a separate Veg grill , Homemade seitan, Lists of food for your money

Cons: Looks dark rand seedy, The Veg options cost more than meat

Good stuff, mostly soy/wheat meat - Edit

Tried this place out late Monday evening. Glad to see so many vegan options on one menu! We had the seitan wings which were great (BBQ sauce is totally vegan with no honey!) and the vegan reuben with veggie turkey (tofurkey) along with daiya cheese. The sandwich was so-so; tofurky was so tough it would kind of fall out of the sandwich when I ate it. Fries were good. The other people in my party had good food, though.

Overall this place is rad and I would return. They really do try with vegan options and in a town like Dayton, that means something.

This place caters to vegans! - Edit

I love this place so much I dream about it, especially the vegan quesadillas with soyrizo. Also good are the vegan hot dogs (and buns) loaded with chili and cheese (daiya). I adore the sweet potato fries and the salads and soups are great too. They even have vegan ranch dressing! Other items include peanut butter cookies, fried pickles, fake ham & cheese (yves), a soyburger, and a chickpea burger. I'm not one for yves products much, but the burgers are made there and are good. Not very tall, but very good.

Their beer is also amazing. They have craft brews and locals like Hudie. The tvs are a little jarring at first but you can phase them out after a minute. I've always found the staff to be courteous and genuine, but sometimes I find regular sour cream on the side of my quesadilla. As of now, they don't carry that. It hasn't happened lately, so maybe it's just an opening *duh* moment.

It's a bit tiny but it rarely fills up. I think it's pretty affordable.

Pros: vegan and vegetarian, beer, their own parking lot

Cons: tiny, can be noisy sometimes, oregon district has festivals sometimes

decent vegan food - Edit

I have eaten there twice and found that the vegan items are plentiful but can be hit or miss. Friends had the vegan ham and cheese and it was the same as you would make it at home--too basic and not exciting at all. I had the vegan hot dog with vegan tequila chili and daiya. It was loaded with good stuff and very tasty. I got two huge loaded dogs and a plate of delicious sweet potato fries for $8! They also had vegan peanut butter cookies that rocked. Husband had vegan burger and thought it was good--little charred from grill but he liked that. They have a huge and interesting beer menu as well and pinball machines! We plan to go again next time we are in the Oregon District.

Pros: several vegan options, sweet potato fries rock, vast beer selection

Cons: some vegan items need work, loud bar scene
