Matt's Jucy Lucy MSP (Yes spelled correctly)

Mel Carne | Nov 20, 2006 09:56 PM

After 28 years since my last jucy lucy, I finally found myself back in Matt's neighborhood, (my wife-to-be used to live in the neighborhood and we would stop there quite frequently for a buger) and since it was lunch time, decided to try it again. (Do a search on this website for jucy lucy, and read the 2004 review for a great piece of writing - you will love it.) The bar serves beer and wine - no booze. The Jucy Lucy is now $4.50, fries not included. I ordered a burger and a glass of the house red (which comes in a water glass - they don't serve much wine). The barmaid popped the wax paper wrapped burger in front of me, and asked if I knew how to treat the burger. Yes - I used to eat them over 28 years ago, and you unwrap them, let them cool a bit, and bite around the edges so you don't burn the hell out of your mouth when the cheese starts to flow. She introduced me to the old guy (I'm 60), sitting next to me "...he probaby cooked your last Jucy Lucy - he's Matt". Is the burger good? Yes. Is it the best burger I ever had? No. Worth the trip. Have fun.
