You might love them for their Cowboy Melt, or the Black and Blue burger, or just plain ole cheeseburgers that don't taste plain at all.  Now Jucy's Hamburgers is adding new things to that comfort-food-menu-of-greatness like veggie burgers and chicken sandwiches, and they've got plans to open up more restaurants across East Texas.  Yum!

There are 5 Jucy’s Hamburgers in East Texas right now, including Longview, Marshall, and Tyler. They've got their sites set on other locations too, as part of a plan to franchise and bring the burgers and chicken fried steak plates to other good people around East Texas who need their day made with meat.

Texas Highways reviewed the Longview location recently at McCann and US80, and noticed that even though it's a chain, it still passes as a hole-in-the-wall with a laid back and unpretentious vibe.  That's Texas!  Cool as a cucumber.  Or a piece of lettuce on top of a burger in this case.

The menu varies a little with the Jucy's locations, so I guess we've got to try them all.  And cheer them on as they open up more East Texas locations, in the next couple of years.  They've been cranking out the burgers since 1980, and they're not afraid to change with the times with things like online ordering, delivery with the Waitr App and the Coca-Cola Freestyle machine that lets you touch a computer touch screen and pick from a hundred soft drink combinations.  But ultimately, it's all about the burgers.

The owners told Texas Highways that they'll take the expansion slowly, and stick close to home at first.  Think we'll see Jucy's in Louisiana or Oklahoma soon?  We'll keep you updated.  Until then, we'll enjoy keeping those fried green tomatoes, burgers, and Frito salads all to ourselves.
