Google added a new feature today that allows creators of custom Google maps to open them up to additional collaborators.
This can be done through invitations, or opened wide. I’ve chosen the latter.
If you know of a Jucy Lucy location that’s not on the map, go ahead and add it. You’ll need a Google account to do so.
In case you haven’t noticed, there are two variations of the spelling of Jucy Lucy. With and without an “I” in Jucy.
Jucy Lucy Restaurants uses the “i-less” version, as that appears to be the original spelling, and it’s what Matt’s Bar uses. However, we realize that not everyone agrees, so we own and redirect juicylucyrestaurants.com to this domain.
Here’s another perspective:
We took a look at what versions of the Lucy term was most popular among people arriving at this site. The above table shows that “Juicy Lucy” with the “i” drove more traffic to this site than the “i-less” version. However, the average visitor using the “i-less” term visited 50% more pages and stayed 3 times longer.
This makes sense, since true Lucy aficionados are more likely to be in tune with the “i-less” spelling.

Jucy Lucy Restaurants is turning things up another notch with yet another exciting feature: a printable map of JucyLucyRetaurants locations.
We recommend keeping a copy in your glove compartment so you can check off the locations as you visit them. If you’re really hardcore, consider laminating it so you can reuse it. See, you can go green and love the Lucy’s.
The above PDF version will go out of date over time, but you can get a fresh version here at any time.
It’s like this: Kirk emailed me and asked if there was a site with a map of Jucy Lucy locations.
I said, “No, but that’s a great idea.”
And just recently, Google added a new feature to the Maps that makes it both easy to create a custom map AND to embed it into a web site.
Thus, the Jucy Lucy Restaurant Map was born.
Thanks to Kirk from AllFourSeasons for inspiring this site.
