Wicked Juicy Lucy, a business owned by Oral, is a new burger joint with an edge. Located at 120 Cunningham Drive near the Maple Street McDonald’s, Wicked Juicy Lucy dishes out stuffed burgers. Instead of having toppings like cheese, jalapenos, pork and chilli on top of the burger, these flavorful additions are inside it.
Opened for two months now, Wicked Juicy Lucy has a burger for every customer. For pork lovers, they have “The Pig.” It is stuffed with pork, cheddar cheese and sausage with bacon added on the top. “The Alarm Fire” is for anyone in the mood for something spicy. This one is stuffed with jalapenos, chili, red peppers and Queso cheese; salsa, taco sauce, corn and lettuce top it off.
If you are not interested in these two, they have other Juicy Lucy’s on the menu titled “Guido,” “Filthy French,” “Steakhouse Snob,” “Bistro Diva” and “I’m a Foodie” that will capture your attention.
You also have the option of creating your own Juicy Lucy. You can choose from up to three stuffers to go inside your burger. According to Oral, there are many options you can choose from.
“You can stuff your burger with onions (sautéed or caramelized), pulled pork, jalapenos, bacon, banana peppers and pepperoni,” said Oral. “You can select from 10 different types of cheese, which include Muenster, Gouda, provolone, mozzarella and Swiss.”
The most popular burger is “The Pig” and I could see why. When I decided to order it, I did not know what to expect; I was afraid I would not like it, but I was wrong. I ended up wanting another one when I finally finished. Even though I could barely taste the sausage, the pork and the cheddar cheese went well with the burger. The bacon also added a nice flavor and so did the barbeque sauce I smeared on my bun; it gave the burger a bit of spice. Of course I did not just have a burger; I wanted onion rings on the side. Hands down, they were the best I have tasted so far. Overall, I give my burger a 9.5 out of 10.
If “The Pig” is not enticing to you, nor are burgers in general, that is okay. They have other items on the menu. Customers have the option to order wings, melts or salads. They even have a breakfast menu with stuffed omelets, waffles, pancakes and a few other morning eats you are sure to love. However, Oral said that breakfast would not be available until “mid-February.” To hold you over, you should try their melts, particularly the one called “Elvis Was Here” It has bananas, peanut butter and bacon on it. They also have 20 different flavored wings as mentioned by Oral. He said they have grilled and fried wings with flavors like jerk, lemon pepper, and Sriracha. In other words, you are never out of options.
Michael Dahmer, owner of the West Georgia Village where Wicked Juicy Lucy is located, described these burgers as “the sickest burger in town.” I could not agree more and I hope to eat more Juicy Lucy’s. If you are itching to give them a try, their hours are 11a.m-9p.m. on Sunday-Thursday and 11a.m.-11p.m. on Friday-Saturday.
