The Jucy Lucy named one of TIME Magazine's 17 most influential burgers
The influential Jucy Lucy at Matt's Bar
Yesterday, TIME Magazine put out a list of what it considers to be the top 17 most influential burgers of all time and the Jucy Lucy, a Minneapolis-perfected phenomenon, comes in at number 10. The people at TIME interviewed "burger historians and experts" to compose the list of the burgers they believe have had the biggest impact on "the burger industry."
The influential Juicy Lucy from the 5/8 Club
Of course, the two restaurants that the TIME Magazine article refers to are Matt's Bar and the 5/8 Club, both located on Cedar Ave in South Minneapolis. The feud is something of local legend, but the listing refers to a 2008 article in the Minnesota Daily that brought the dueling restaurants into the national spotlight. The burger battle took to the national arena again on an episode of Travel Channel's Food Wars.
