Taking One For The Team--The $10 Juicy Lucy Burger

Chandavkl | Jan 9, 2013 11:45 AM

When it comes to burgers, my tastes are simple, and In-n-Out once in a while is good enough for me. But since I work 3 days a week at Fig & 7th, I decided to put on my suit and head downstairs to Juicy Lucy. I probably would have opted for the salmon burger or turkey burger, but since I was representing the board on grand opening day I went with their signature cheese on the inside Juicy Lucy. The burger turned out OK, but was exceedingly messy since the inner cheese melted more than outer cheese would. They seem to use the world's tallest bun, though it was soft and flattened out during the eating process. Also I had to wait 20 minutes for my hamburger because my first burger exploded when they stuck the skewer in and they had to start all over from scratch. I also figured out what makes this a $10 burger. It's the six people standing behind the counter, which makes sense at a place like Chipotle where your meal is being put together in stages, but not at a burger place. I'll take four In-n-Outs over one Juicy Lucy any day, though I suspect they'll do OK with the downtown crowd.
