"World famous Juicy Lucy"
Yesterday we went to the 5-8 Club in south Minneapolis and everyone had a "juicy lucy" burger. The original is 8 ounces of ground beef with a large chunk of American cheese in the center. The burger was grilled medium well with a little crunch on the out side but it was still juicy and the cheese oozed out when you took a bite.
The 5-8 Club started as a speakeasy during prohibition and is still going strong. There is some question as to whether this is the original "juicy lucy" or if Matt's which is further north on Cedar Av serves the original.
Next time, we're off to Matt's!
