Do you have a food-related question for me? Let me know and I'll do my best to answer it for you.

First topic: Awesome Restaurants!

One of my favorite places to eat in downtown Frederick is just a further down Market St.. You'll want to give Lucky Corner, on the corner of Market & 7th a try. This inexpensive, clean, well-run restaurant features food from Vietnam -- delicious! The Summer Rolls are a must (2 per order), as is any dish with crispy noodles or their rockin' peanut sauce. Dinner is cheap cheap cheap, with most entrees coming in under $10. You can't beat that with a stick, unless maybe that stick has their tasty chicken satay (4 skewers to an order)! My husband and I have fed 6 adults on $55 bucks and still had leftovers for lunch the next day. It generally takes about 20-30 minutes to pick up food for takeout, and be sure to check your order before you leave the store. It's not incomprehensible that a dish may have been left out of the bag by accident.

Lucky Corner does have eat-in and pick-up for phone orders, but no delivery is available. Beer is available in-house only, but no wine yet.
