Jucy Additions: Wildfire Restaurants

Cariann reminded me that the Wildfire restaurant chain offers a Juicy Lucy. I was under the impression that this was only an occasional lunch special, so was leaning away from including it on the site, but verified that it is indeed a menu staple at this point.

All Wildfire locations (Eden Prairie, Atlanta, and a bunch in Chicago) have been added to the map. Thanks Cariann.

Tempers Flare over Jucy Lucy’s at MNSpeak

A simple mention of this site has set off a flame war on MNSpeak.com.

Leigha Horton played the role of nay-sayer with this comment:

Am I the only one in the Twin Cities who really really wanted to like the Juicy Lucys, but was always disappointed? Cheese makes EVERYTHING better – yet, when it comes out as runny molten grease (instead of the desired thickened cheesy goo) inside a hunk of meat, I’m just not impressed.

Wham! There you have it: controversy. And then it was ON!

From there, things degraded into territorial battles over which restaurant makes the best Jucy Lucy.

Teucer tried to save it with this comment:

Apparently, cheese-filled burgers is a hot-button issue and tempers are flaring. People, please! It’s just lunch.

However, it was too far gone.

One could say that “the cheese was out of the burger” by that point.

Two Jucy Additions: NE Palace and Shamrocks

Thanks to Tuck and Kirk for contributing their Jucy Lucy knowledge by bringing the NE Palace and Shamrocks to my attention.

Both have been added to the map.

Gin & Phonics has some great tips on how to order a perfect Jucy Lucy at the NE Palace.

And Shamrocks has a MySpace page you can friend if you’re into that sort of thing.
