5-8 Club

5-8 Club

Opened in 1928 as a speakeasy during prohibition, the 5-8 Club claims to be the “home of the Juicy Lucy: accept no imitations!”. The original 5-8 Club Juicy Lucy is a 1/2 lb burger stuffed with American cheese. They also offer a few variations on the famed burger, such as the Saucy Sally (1/2 lb burger, stuffed with special sauce and topped with cheese). Unlike their Juicy Lucy competitor down the street, Matt’s, you also have a choice of cheese with which to stuff inside your Juicy Lucy, such as Pepper Jack or Cheddar. You can also add other “stuffings” such as pineapple. Aside from Juicy Lucy’s, the 5-8 Club offers other sandwich choices, specialty burgers, BBQ ribs, chicken and fish, along with onion rings, fries and fried cheese curds. A visit to both Matt’s Bar and the 5-8 Club is a must for any visitor who wants to experience the “Juicy Lucy” challenge for themselves!
