Ah, the inimitable Jucy Lucy (yes, Matt's spells it without the "i"). While the battle rages between Matt’s Bar and the nearby 5-8 Club over who originally invented this brilliant burger variation, the one at Matt’s Bar is a superior specimen. Legend has it that shortly after the restaurant opened in 1954 a hungry customer came in and asked for two burger patties with a slice of cheese in the middle. He took a bite, proclaimed it to be "one juicy Lucy!," and a legend was born. Only fresh-ground beef goes into each hand-formed burger, and the first bite yields a river of molten, gooey cheese. These burgers are much more difficult to make than it may appear, and the one at Matt’s Bar is absolute perfection. -Dan Myers

Amazing food slightly hidden away in the neighborhood. I wandered around after a party and found myself there, suddenly, with a delicious burger in front of me.
On Man v Food, Adam Richman stops in for Matt's Bar's version of the Jucy Lucy (a cheeseburger with the cheese inside the burger, instead of on top).
Juicy Lucy will burn you if you’re not careful. This burger is made up of two patties crimped together with a slice of cheese in the middle. Fear the Cheese!
Try the Juicy Lucy (after) and spot it on Foodspotting!
Get the Jucy Lucy and a cold beer. Pay with straight cash, homie.
Get the Juicy Lucy but wait a few minutes before eating it. That cheese will get you everytime.
Bring cash, an extra hour and a shirt you don't mind getting dirty. You'll need all three for the first time.
Remember they don't take credit/debit cards. Cash or check only!
Jucy Lucy and a Grain Belt.
jucy lucy & fries. need i say more?
Home of the Original Juicy Lucy, don't order anything else!
make sure this is your order: jucy lucy, basket of fries, premium
Don't pick "Stairway to Heaven" on the jukebox, it DOESN'T PLAY. :-(
Other places may say they have the best Juicy Lucy, but non compare to Matt's. It can be hard to find a seat when it's busy. Pair the Lucy with fries and a beer.
Juicy Lucy...need I say more?
Home of the "Juicy Lucy" cheese in the middle hamburger: warning: wait a minute until the cheese cools before you bite in or you will burn your mouth big time!
Jucy Lucy and a Premium, need I say more?
The best Juicy Lucy and the best quirky atmosphere for out of town guests who want a Juicy Lucy. Bring your own ice.
