Greatest I’ve eaten in East Texas: Jucys Black & Bleu

I ate a ton of BBQ here and enjoyed great soul food but on my first stop at Jucys Hamburgers I came across my new favorite burger but if you don’t like smelly cheese then this is not for you.

As you all know very well here in the East Texas region, Jucys according to their website, has been voted “Best Burger in East Texas” for the past 30 years. In November 2015, Jucy’s was also named the # 1 burger in Texas by Texas Highways Magazine.

Now I don’t mind a place that shows their awards, but for the most part we all look at “burgers” the same way: if you had one, you had them all. And most of them go unnoticed, so I was a little apprehensive about going to Jucys’ but thought, “What the hell, a burger is a burger.” When I came across this bad boy, I changed my mind.

If you love blue cheese as much as I do, Jucy’s “Black & Bleu” burger will be your new favorite. It’s a 1/2 pound patty with spices, bacon, tomato, cucumber, onion, and mustard, and of course the piece of resistor (sorry, I failed French), crumbled blue cheese.

I’m not going to lie to you, I’ve eaten this burger at least 4-5 times in the past 3 weeks before writing this article. Not only did I enjoy it, my wife who is also a blue cheese fan is now addicted, but because she lives a few hours away and can’t have any like me, she has now forbidden me to go as far as Jucys, until She can get out of here and have one of her own.

But I just finished one.
