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.

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.

On Sunday, February 25, the City of Paducah declared a State of Emergency and began installing 14 out of the 23 floodgates along the Ohio River. The rest of the gates will be installed on March 2-3.
VIDEO: Early Sunday morning I was able to get some photos of the riverfront before the crews started working on the floodgates.
By midday Downtown was bustling as people gathered from all over to watch this enormous city-wide operation go like clockwork. Local 6 News was on site getting the facts while others held up cellphones to get personal footage of this historic event.
