Matt' Bar, home of the original Jucy Lucy, is phenomenal. It is better than the Juicy Lucy at the just as famous 5-8 Club. It is fair to compare the burgers of the two establishments, but after that they are completely different. 5-8 turned into a mini chain restaurant with 3 locations and offers an extensive menu with a closed kitchen. Matt's Bar on the other hand is a classic dimly lit dive bar that has the griddle right behind the bar and the menu hung on the wall. The burger was Delicious. It came on a fresh bun, with diced grilled onions and crisp pickles. The patties was cooked perfectly and had a great crust seared on it from the flat top. The American cheese was plentiful and steamed while it oozed out of the center of the burger.
When looking for a Jucy Lucy in Minneapolis, head to Matt's.
