With today’s gluttonous Groupon, gorge on eats that Mpls. St. Paul magazine named Best Juicy Lucy in Minneapolis in August, 2009. For $7, you’ll get $15 worth of hearty burgers, crispy fries, and ambitious eats at The 5-8 Club, an 80-year-old institution with three redeemable locations and a fourth location found only in the dreams of children.
The Juicy Lucy ($5.50), a half-pound burger stuffed with American cheese, is the eatery’s signature selection. Non-dairy fans can opt for the Saucy Sally ($5.75), sister to the famed Lucy, and stuffed with The 5-8 Club’s secret sauce. Vegetarians can enjoy a vegetable-based patty for $.50 extra. Other options include rib-sticking sandwiches, such as grilled cheese and Reubens, along with fried fish, steak, and rib dinners.
The 5-8 Club has been serving up substantial fare and friendly service since its speakeasy origins in the late 1920s. The restaurant’s flavorful history and stomach-satisfying dishes help to dismiss any guilt associated with greasy fare. Get this Groupon to sample a local treat, nosh on grill-season staples all year long, or amuse your elderly relatives with a piece of epicurean history.
