Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Offers Good Fortune and Good Eats with Chinese Cuisine at Mr. Lucky’s Café

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Offers Good Fortune and Good Eats with Chinese Cuisine at Mr. Lucky’s Café

Mr. Lucky’s Café inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino just got luckier and is inviting patrons to indulge in savory Chinese selections, available now.

Mr. Lucky’s is the one stop shop for authentic Chinese dishes, available from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., seven days a week. For the superstitious, authentic dishes include: spring rolls ($6.99) – according to ancient Chinese culture beliefs, spring rolls resemble the shape of gold bars and therefore symbolize wealth; lettuce wraps ($9.99) – the Cantonese word for lettuce sounds similar to “rising fortune” and in China, the dish is often served with other foods that are known to bring luck; and dishes such as lo mein ($12.99), chow mein ($12.99) and chow fun ($13.99) – noodles are a representation of long life.

For the indecisive or those who enjoy trying a little bit of everything, Mr. Lucky’s offers the appetizer combination ($17.99), which includes char siu pork, spare ribs, won tons, spring rolls and crispy green beans. Traditional favorites include: beef with broccoli ($12.99), crispy honey and walnut shrimp ($14.99), crispy general’s chicken ($12.99) and Buddha’s feast ($10.99).

Mr. Lucky’s invites hotel guests, neighboring business professionals and late-risers to savor in its Chinese lunch specials, starting at $9.99 and available from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., seven days a week. Guests choose from a variety of entrees such as sweet and sour chicken, kung pao beef and chicken lo mein. To complement each meal, lunch specials include a cup of egg drop soup or hot and sour soup, a spring roll, fried or steamed rice and of course, a fortune cookie.

As the name signifies, Mr. Lucky’s 24/7 is open ‘round the clock and offers a traditional style eatery with a family-friendly atmosphere. The standard diner fare – burgers, sandwiches, and breakfast items such as French toast – is first-rate, as are the pizzas. Mr. Lucky’s not-so secret specials include: the Gambler’s Special (a 6-ounce flat iron steak, three jumbo shrimp, garlic mashed potatoes and a side salad, all for a lucky $7.77) available 24 hours a day, seven days a week; and the All You Can Eat Prime Rib Special for only $9.99, available from 4 p.m. to 4 a.m. Guests may enjoy New York Steak & Eggs for $4.99* and the Burger Basket Special for $3.99* both available from midnight to 8 a.m. After the meal, indulge in the Hot Apple Pie with sizzling caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream. Inexpensive as most venues placed in the ‘diner’ category, Mr. Lucky’s ups the ante with its cool, energized rock ‘n’ roll aura with décor to match: rock memorabilia, a large Jim Morrison mural, animal-print seating, vintage motel signage and wood floors. Since 2003, Mr. Lucky’s has been recognized as one of the city’s “Best Late Night Snack” according to the Las Vegas Weekly Reader’s Choice Poll, named one of “America’s Best 24-Hour Hot Spots” by Travel + Leisure and recently was named “Best Coffee Shop” in Las Vegas Review-Journal’s “Best Of” Awards 2011. *Rockstar Players Card required for discount.
