Minneapolis is home to the battle of the Juicy Lucys (or Jucy Lucys!). The rivalry between Matt’s Bar the 5-8 Club for the best cheese-stuffed burger in town has been raging for decades, and is still in full swing. Locals each have their favorites, but we’ll let you be the judge. Beyond the two big boys, some other well-loved spots for a quality Lucy are The Nook and Blue Door Pub. If you're feeling adventurous, try The Jiffy at Blue Door—a Juicy Lucy with peanut butter and bacon. Don’t knock it until you try it!
