PADUCAH, KY – Just Hamburgers serves the biggest-bang-for-your-buck burgers in Kentucky located on Jackson Street in the City of Paducah.
There were cars lined up all the way to the street for the drive thru at the time, so we decided to park and go inside. I have read so many good things about this place online I had to see it for myself and document this trip for others to see.
This week's special is The Black Hole Sun!It's a double burger topped with provolone cheese, an onion ring, bacon,…
I ordered the Weekly Hamburger Special which was called The Black Hole Sun! It was a huge double burger with provolone cheese topped with an onion ring, smothered in sweet & spicy bbq sauce with some jalapenos and bacon added as well. The burger was the best I have ever had and It came with fries and a large pop for only $5.99.
The service provided by the staff had a personal touch to boot, something you don’t see very often – if at all. Customers were actually greeted by their first names as they walked inside.
Owner Robert and Jennifer Waller are at the helm of this old-style eatery that carries an impeccable rating of 4.8 on Google and an even more impressive 4.9 on its Facebook page.
What makes Just Hamburgers far exceed other hamburger joints? They greet their customers by name making them feel like they belong. They serve high end burgers at a price that’s literally unbeatable. Also worth mentioning is the owner and staff are the coolest guys ever.
I will definitely be back to get another weekly special at this little Gem very soon. Please try this locally-owned eatery and take part in keeping small businesses alive and well in the Paducah area.
Mon – Sat: 10:30am – 7:00pm
PADUCAH, KY – The 54th Annual Lighted Dogwood Trail 2018 has a new theme this year called ‘Light up, company is coming!’
This was our first time going through the Lighted Dogwood Trail and it was really beautiful. There were signs posted on stop signs throughout the route that helped guide us through the wonderful neighborhoods of Paducah.
The Dogwood Trail started back in 1964 that consisted of just two blocks on Sycamore Street. Today the trail spans 11 miles from downtown Paducah to the suburbs in the west.
The Dogwood Tree is associated with Easter due to its cross-like flowers as well. Read more on the history at paducahky.gov/dogwood-trail
