    The servers work hard, so you will endear yourselves if you are quick and organized with your order. 3 Jucy Lucys w/ grilled onions. Large order of friends. 3 Grain Belts. Done. Cash only. Pay at bar.

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

    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.

    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.

    The chicken sandwich is good but the reason to go is the Juicy Lucy. Be ready, it's cash (or check) only.

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

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

    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.

    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!

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

    Jucy Lucy, Jucy Lucy. That, a basket of fries, and a pitcher to split. That's what I call bliss.

    You HAVE to get a Jucy Lucy (or 2). The fries are thin and crispy and delicious. A large order can feed three people. Pop is sold by can. Great food, great prices.

    Love 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 :-)

    Be prepared to wait in line if you go for lunch or diner time. No plastic accepted at all. ATM on premise. Fear the Cheese.

    Jucy Lucys are south Minneapolis's contribution to world cuisine, made by crimping two beef patties together around a hunk of cheese and grilling until the cheese inside reaches molten temperatures. Read more
