  • CNTravelerMatt’s Bar is a must-visit, and claims to be the birthplace of the iconic Jucy Lucy, an intentionally misspelled cheese-stuffed burger.

    55555 by CNTraveler

    55555 by Kate Y.

  • Letty CMatt's delicious Juicy Lucys and generous baskets of hot fries are quickly served to and enjoyed by ALL... Even his ADD patrons, who just might hit submit prior to proof-reading their last post.

    55555 by Letty C

  • Letty CHabds down the best Juicy-Lucy in town, only to be rivaled by it's super, generous, skinny, crunchy and flavorful fries!

    55555 by Letty C

  • Albert L.Order yourself a juicy Lucy. You can't go wrong. A half order of fries is more than plenty for a couple people. Also, this place is cash only too so plan ahead.

    55555 by Albert L.

  • Chris A.The Juicy Lucy was overrated and we were hearded like cattle. Absolutely no customer service. The burger was charcoal black and the cheese was cheap. Go to The Nook for a real Juicy Lucy.

    33333 by Chris A.

    55555 by Steve K

  • Melissa R.Juicy Lucy, duh.

    55555 by Melissa R.

  • drew t.The chicken sandwich is good but the reason to go is the Juicy Lucy. Be ready, it's cash (or check) only.

    55555 by drew t.

  • David H.Cash only. Jucy Lucy was delicious. Pickles are included inside the burger, though. Not a fun surprise.

    55555 by David H.

  • Gordon W.Very average burgers and the fries are pre-processed junk.

    33333 by Gordon W.

  • Cole K.Come to me, beautiful molten cheese center. Make sure to wait a minute before chowing on your Jucy Lucy (or just cut it in half) and order a refreshing Grain Belt Premium while you wait.

    55555 by Cole K.

  • Ansell T.The Juicy Lucy was wonderful, I'd pass on other things though.

    55555 by Ansell T.

  • Brent M.The best Jucy Lucy in the city

    55555 by Brent M.

  • Jeiran H.Got lucky, didn't have to wait too long and sat at the counter. You can see all the grease- kind of an awesome view, especially knowing you're about to eat the burgers!

    33333 by Jeiran H.

  • John ArchilaJucy Lucy, duh. Order two Jucy's and a half order fries; perfect for dates.

    55555 by John Archila

    55555 by Thomas Brasseur

  • Seth T.Have to do the famous Jucy Lucy... not a better burger in Minnesota!!!

    55555 by Seth T.

  • Erik R.The Juicy Lucy is everything you've been told, delicious and the cheese will burn a hole through your tongue if you're not careful. Yet even for a dive bar, the service was lacking big time!

    55555 by Erik R.

  • Brian DEverything is great! The burgers obviously are great, but the fries are also good too. Plus the overall vibe of the place is awesome!

    55555 by Brian D

  • Juan L.Jucy Lucy is awesome

    55555 by Juan L.

  • Ben SchaeferYou have to try the Juicy Lucy, and I would recommend coming in on a non peak hour unless you want to wait in line.

    55555 by Ben Schaefer

  • Chris J.If you're hanging with friends, get a table near the back. Relax and wait for your Juicy Lucy to cool off.

    55555 by Chris J.

  • Ellen S.There are few things on the menu, so you know they make them well. The Lucy Lucy gets all the hype (deservedly so), but the fries are spectacular!

    55555 by Ellen S.

    55555 by Stephen K.

  • Lori NehringLove the Juicy Lucy! Let it sit a bit before digging in or you'll burn your mouth for sure. Ask for a bowl of pickles too. Yum!! The waitress works very hard and is great, treat her well :-)

    55555 by Lori Nehring

    55555 by Colin S

    33333 by Nick A.

  • Nick A.Out-of-towners: Don't let someone convince you that the 5-8 Club has the better one-of-a-kind burger...it's clear there is only one true "Jucy Lucy" at Matt's!
