More lucys for burger fans

One of the classics in the stuffed-burger realm is coming to the east side. The 5-8 Club has announced that it's in talks to buy a new location for fans to get their gooey fix.

See Also:

The owners are considering a move into the former Chula Vista space on Robert Street, the Pioneer Press reports. Plans involve gutting the space and doing a total remodel to include a bar and patio. The owners of the 5-8 Club told to City Pages the deal is not yet final, and that they might try out a new restaurant concept in that space if they acquire it.

The original 5-8 Club resides in south Minneapolis. Purportedly once a speakeasy, it now serves a mess of massive hamburgers stuffed with molten cheese and piles of salty, crispy fries. Fans rabidly argue over who had the first and best Juicy Lucy in the Twin Cities, since both the 5-8 Club and Matt's Bar in south Minneapolis claim to have originated the Juicy Lucy. Either way, it's hard to argue that putting the cheese inside the burger wasn't a stroke of genius.

Aren't Minneapolis and St. Paul already infiltrated with lucy options?

There already is one in STP, on the boarder with Maplewood. The more the merrier?

I thought they had one already? Or is that Maplewood? Damn good anyway.

Nick, your crazy! We eat there all the time, and its always fantastic! Much better then Matt's! You must be friends with someone at Matt's. I've tried burgers everywhere, and theirs ranks right near the top, especially The Saucy Sally, if you feel like being messy.

This is in the city of West Saint Paul not Saint Paul.

Chula Vista locale is in West St. Paul, not the eastside.  We already got a 5-8 in Oakdale.

Matt's is in fact better, but thats not saying much, both suck compared to countless options in the metro.

I love them both actually. ;) Brussel sprouts are one of my fav veggies, and I do get "the craving" occasionally. If you like Velveeta in your burger and cardboard fries, then 5-8 is the place to be. :P That being said, I do appreciate being able to get pepper jack and bleu cheese in the burger, but nothing can compare to a Matt's jucy.

"St. Paul location" huh? And I suppose Pizza Luce expanding to Richfield constituted a new "Minneapolis location"?

If you like disgusting food or White Castle it is... Matt's is terrible!
