Excellent food, but don't plan to use your Groupons here!

The food here is great--hands down. The rib "sandwich" is a pile of ribs on white bread--wow! However, they often offer Groupons and then refuse to honor them. I've had this happen twice--I bought the Groupons only to be told *at the door* that they were not accepting Groupons that day. So, in... read more

On the outside as well as the inside it does not look like much however the burger is freaking amazing! The menu is limited to burgers and ribs. Four types of burgers available. Chips and canned drinks also available (limited selection). I ordered the double burger hold the tomatoes and a Dt. Coke. The burger was juicy and flavorful. Well... More

The Blue Dot is in a neighborhood off the main routes; therefore it gets missed. Word of mouth makes it a must try place to seek out. A simple small blue building apparently run by just two men. One on the counter; one cooking. The man on the counter is amazing! He remembers orders and passes Them out with no... More

Only serve burgers, chips, and soda. The burger is cooked when you order, so no cold food. The best hot burger in town.

Great burger but the service is not friendly, not rude, just getting you in and out. Like another reviewer said your not special almost like the Soup Nazi on Seinfeld. This place has been around forever and has a loyal following so he doesn't need to be friendly just fast. Take it to go if you want ketchup or pickles... More

Visited for the first time in a long time and very little has changed. That's just what we were hoping for. What you get here is a simple burger (about six ounces, tomato, onion, mayo, mustard), juicy to the point of being slightly messy. The flavor is unbelievable. We suspect part of the magic is a very well seasoned hot... More

Love this place and it's the best burger I've had. There is only one person behind the counter, but don't worry, he goes fast and remembers your order perfectly. The hamburger comes with onions and tomatoes. I ask for no onions sometimes, but even if I don't they make the burger worth it. Comes in a brown paper bag, just... More

I typically steer away from burgers because I'm usually disappointed, always comparing burgers to my favorite place back home. But after hearing great reviews from locals while in Pensacola, I decided to give Blue Dot a try. OH EM GEE - So good! They don't offer fries which was a disappointment to my husband, but they do have chips. Small... More

Excellent food!!! Burgers, chips, and sodas. We had the burger with BBQ sauce on it. Unassuming exterior with a tiny parking lot. Cash only.
