Juicy LucyPhiladelphia, PA - The Juicy Lucy Cheeseburger is not just a cheeseburger; it's even better! If you have never tried one, it's time you did! Because it's filled with gooey cheese and grilled to perfection.

The Juicy Lucy "Burger"

The Juicy Lucy Burger was invented in a bar sometime in the 50s, and depending on who you talk to, that was either the 5-8 Club, where they serve the "Juicy Lucy," or Matt's Bar, where they make the "Jucy Lucy," and let customers know that "if it's spelled correctly, you're at the wrong place."

It got its name at a Minneapolis bar back in the 80s, when a patron bit into a burger and screamed, "That's a juicy Lucy!"

There are several variations of the Juicy Lucy Burger, from its cheese-stuffed interior to its meat-and-cheese exterior. These burgers are easy to make and can be enjoyed throughout the year.

The secret to creating a perfect Juicy Lucy Burger is in the technique. The proper ratio of beef to cheese is essential to a perfectly shaped burger. It is also vital to use cold ground beef, making it easier to shape.

The burger patties should be shaped into two equal-sized patties, then simply place your choice of cheese in the middle of the two patties. Then simply join the patties together and throw them on the grill. Put it on you're favorite hamburger roll and enjoy.
