The Jucy Lucy = Our Philly Cheesesteak

Tim at Champion of the Sun has kicked off a Jucy Lucy tour with a great write-up explaining what Jucy Lucys are all about along with a summary of his first stop at Matt’s:

Tim’s Jucy Lucy Tour! Stop One: Matt’s Bar

Lucies are our Philly cheesesteak, our Chicago style hot dog, our Cincinatti chili, our Brooklyn style folded pizza slices. For those of you that don’t know, a (traditional) Jucy Lucy is a burger that has American cheese cooked into the middle. However, one of the cool things about it is that, unlike those other local food traditions, the Twin Cities foster a spirit of experimentation with the Lucy. Different places offer very different takes, and that’s what I’m going to explore.

Good luck on your journey, Tim. We’re looking forward to your reports.

  1. Thanks for the mention, when I decided to turn my random visit to Matt’s into a full fledged tour this was one of the first sites I consulted. I look forward to using it as a valuable resource in the months ahead.
