Both the Chinese and American foods are very good and CHEAP. Try the green chile cheeseburger - there is a reason Lucky Boy is on the New Mexico Cheeseburger Trail. The Chinese food is typical American style, but always done fresh in front of your eyes, so it is always good. It may not be possible to spend $20 for... More

If you like fancy places Lucky Boy is not for you. If you like indy dives that can throw down a decent burger AND good cheap Chinese, this is your spot. Two of us ate lunch w/ drinks, tax and tip for under $15. Food was served fast and screaming hot. My double meat Burger had two generous hand-pressed patties... More

Get the Egg Foo Yung...it will be the best you've ever had. They also make great steamed dumpling bread with bbq meat inside called a bow (bow-za). Quick service.

Cheap, quick and neighborhood. We love our Lucky Boy and can feed 1 adult and 2 kids for less than $10. Green Chile cheeseburgers are delicious.

I've been going to Lucky Boy for about 20 years now, and it hasn't changed. Being there is kind of like being in someone's not-so-recently-remodeled kitchen. The menu is short and simple, and is (literally) a mixture of Chinese and American. Where else in the world could you get an egg foo yung burger, or mixed vegetables in your chow... More

Great food. The wontons are a must try and are the best in town. They aren't just fried dough, but are filled with an ample amount of seasoned meat. Their Sweet & Sour dishes are another of my favorites. The sweet & sour sauce is more of an orange sauce and the sauce is soaked into the chicken or pork... More
