I have had this at the 5-8 Club, Matt’s, Blue Door, and a couple others.

My opinion is that you cannot go wrong. If you are insistent upon visiting the site of the original (where no doubt the creator is long dead and gone), head to all the contenders. If you do that, though, at least delve into the variations, all of which I find delicious.

Dammit. Now I am hungry.

I grew up a few block from Matt’s and have had many, many Lucys. I recommend carefully nibbling off the top of the burger and dipping fries into the molten cheese.
