Lucky Fox, on Division Street, closed last month to – as staff put it – ‘take a wee nap’ when the Government ordered eat-in food establishments to close to help enforce social distancing rules.

Now the American-inspired diner has returned, allowing customers to order and collect food as well as have meals sent to their homes via Deliveroo.

The restaurant launched on Division Street in 2014 and later expanded to a second site on Ecclesall Road, which has since closed.

Its food – in particular its intensely meaty chicken gravy – is considered so authentic that Americans living in Sheffield have been known to visit the place for their fried chicken fix.

A revised menu is being offered for the takeaway service. This includes the Williamsburger, a chicken sandwich served on a brioche bun with a fried egg and Swiss cheese, and ‘chick n’ waffles’, which comes with maple syrup and cinnamon butter. Vegetarian options include deep-fried halloumi and waffles.

“We’ve removed things that don’t travel well and split up some items so they will be delivered to you more efficiently,” Lucky Fox said.

“Please note Deliveroo prices will be slightly higher due to the commission charges. Ordering fries and gravy is now separate so you can add them yourself – saves everything getting soggy.”
