Four of us came to town and the Jucy Lucy at Matt’s was on the cannot skip list. It was better than advertised. If there was a score above 5 it would get it. It’s a small neighborhood bar (dive by some standards) with a limited menu but one item was 95% of the orders while we were there. The Judy Lucy was so good we ordered a second batch to put in our over stuffed stomachs. We sat at the bar by the grill and the cook was very friendly talking about the food and other random topics we went into. We all would definitely came back again. I am glad they are very up front about cash only so we were sure to have some on us.

Matt's has been on the 'to eat' list for a while to help us settle the dispute between two Minneapolis bars as to which one has the best "Juicy Lucy" which is a hamburger with melted cheese in the center of the burger patty.

There were no dissenting votes at all from our group; which ate at the other location and is a previous TripAdvisor review. Hands down, bar none, no questions asked; this was THE BEST Juicy Lucy burger. Congrats Matt's on settling the dispute for our group!

This is a nothing fancy location serving up a FANTASTIC nothing fancy stuffed burger with good fries and cold beer. Americana and Minneapolis at it's BEST! we will be back for sure and certain!!

Matt’s is a dive bar but home to the famous Juicy Lucy. You must order but once it is served give it one minute to cool down before indulging as the cheese will burn you. The wait was 30 minutes as apparently it always is. We went at 3 pm on Saturday and was out before 4pm. The cheese and meat were amazing and the onions and pickles were great compliments. Lives up to the legend.

The Jucy Lucy is good, but that was expected. The fries are not very good. The atmosphere is dive bar, which is fine, but it is in a less then stellar neighborhood, there is no parking and you generally have to wait to get a seat, altho we did not. It has one thing going for it, for sure, but not much else.
