Juicy Lucy

I’ve always driven by the 5-8 club but never visited. Then when my sister went with a friend and told me they had blue cheese filled hamburgers and I knew I had to go. My life depended on it…

According to the restaurant officials (aka, the online menu) the 5-8 club used to be a speakeasy back in the prohibitions days during the 1920s. Once prohibition was lifted the 5-8 continued to serve booze in it’s legal form and added a food menu to the mix. It soon became widely known for its famous burgers and beer selection. Today, over 75 years later, the 5-8 is still around serving their famous burgers old-school style.

While it made have been a wide selection back in the days of prohibition, the 5-8 serves primarily domestics (not that there’s anything wrong with that), a small array of wine (but who drinks wine with burgers anyways!?), and Mike’s Hard Lemonade (if you enjoy a stomach ache in a bottle).

There’s plenty of parking and lots of seating, but it’s a popular place. The hightop tables can fit 4, but they are fairly small. If you go on the weekend during lunch you’ll probably have to wait.

Our order consisted of Onion Straws ($5.25)
Can someone say giant basket of fried onions? Good, lots, onion breath for weeks. Thin sliced onions, hand breaded and deep fried. Not your typical fried onion. You must share these or suffer the consequences of eating a large basket of onions all by your lonesome. If you don’t like onions beware. You could probably skip the fries if you get these. I’m going with the Extreme Jojos next time. And of course The Juicy Lucy ($4.95) This is what I was waiting for. A half pound burger stuffed with your choice of American, Bleu, Pepper, or Swiss cheese. I thought the burger was awesome (even though now I’ve had Five Guys which is probably a close number one for me at this point). I would definitely go back to the 5-8 for another stuffed burger. I didn’t order any sides because the onion things kicked my ass and the burger finished the job.

Reason for the 4 and not the 5? I guess I liked the food, minus the onion fries, but I would most likely opt for take-out next time. The dining area was hard to maneuver.

5 8 Club

Everything I've eaten here has been very good. Not the easiest place to get to as it is more or less in a residential area. People often drice by on the freeway and never figure out how to get to the place. Has a very loyal customer…

Great Juicy Lucy's!

The 5-8 Club is a great place for a Juicy Lucy! A Juicy Lucy is two hamburger pattys joined together with melted cheese inside! And they are fabulous at the 5-8 Club! It is a casual resturant where you feel comfortable showing up in jeans…

5 8 Club is Home of Juicy Lucy

This place was featured on the Travel Channel as the "home of the Juicy Lucy" burger. Although I didn't have that burger, it's a down-home joint with fun food. We ate outside on a warm night and except for the noise of the planes taking…
