Matt left a comment to tell us he has noticed the Mainstreet Bar in Hopkins was missing from our recent additions:
I’ve been seeing all these updates for newly found Jucy Lucys… Why no love for Mainstreet Bar & Grill in Hopkins? They’ve had one for a few years now.
Matt, you didn’t mention if you’ve tried the Mainstreet Lucy. It looks like a pretty standard style. How was it?
Zach Slovin wrote to tell us about the Ugly Mug Minneapolis:
Just found your site and saw on the map you don’t have The Ugly Mug listed as a Lucy location. They have 2 lucys on the menu, one I believe with jalepeno and bacon on the inside as well as extra cheese on top.
More jalapenos! They actually have three Lucys on the menu and they all sound pretty tasty. Ready to devote an entire weekend to Ugly Mug?
Jake Whiting points us to the Jalapeno Juicy Lucy at the Gold Nugget Tavern & Grille in Minnetonka. He has a pretty high opinion of what they’re doing out there:
My wife and I go here fort-nightly, and most recently I had the Jalapeño Juicy Lucy. I would give it a 3 out of 4 thumbs up, with the 4th thumb pointing parallel to the horizon. I’d dock it the maximum thumbs possible for being a tad on the dry side. Proportions, architecture, internal temperature, and flavor were ALL there though.
This restaurant is worth the trek down Excelsior for the meal. It’s good food. And no, I have no affiliation with the restaurant!
Adding jalapenos seems deadly. And delicious. Seems like it’s worth the drive.
Tony Perkins alerts us to a Lucy on the menu at Lord Fletcher’s out in Spring Park:
Got another new place for you… Lord Fletcher’s in Spring Lake. It seems out of place there, but it’s on the menu for $11. I didn’t try it but I hope to in the future.
This Lucy comes with gouda, which is a pretty interesting choice. Tony, did you try it yet?
Bill McGarry from McGarry’s Pub in Maple Plain wants you to try their Irish version of the Juicy Lucy:
McGarry’s Jucy Lucy
8 oz fresh ground lamb burger stuffed with drunken goat cheese topped with red wine portabelle mushrooms.
That sounds pretty amazing and could get me out to Maple Plain. If you give a taste test, come back and share your review.
We learned Lucky’s 13 Pub opened a new location, thanks to a comment left by Tim W.
A second location is about to open on Feb. 1st at the old Bloomington Bennegins location.
The price of the Lulu seems to have gone up to $10.99 since we last posted about Lucky’s. If you’ve been to either location, let us know how you feel about the Lulu.
Shelley recently visited Turtle’s Bar and Grill in Shakopee, MN and had this to say:
I was just at Turtles in Shakopee and tried their Juicy Lucy – they were great! Definitely as good as Matt’s.
We may have to test the accuracy of this claim.
Check out this shirt from Seed Promotions. It does a nice job capturing the molten goodness from that first bite.
