Blue Dot is a fun spot for locals and tourist's alike.

We recently spent a week in Pensacola Beach on vacation and thought Blue Dot would be fun to try, and we were right! It's a small unassuming place that you'd drive right past if you weren't looking for it. And as simple as the place is, the menu is even simpler. Hamburgers, no cheese, no pickles... read 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.

I finally went to Blue Dot. I'm so glad I did. It is not fancy. It was the best old fashioned hamburger I have ever had. There are no fancy gourmet hamburgers (I'm glad). The ordering experience was quite unusual. I will admit I was a bit intimidated at first but caught on pretty quickly. However, I don't think I... More

The adding BBQ to their name only applies to Saturdays when they have ribs. They are closed on Su/Mon while the other days you can only get a hamburger $5.50 or a double $7.00 and that is just for the burger. Chips $.50 or soda $.70 are extra. During lunch there is a line with many people waking out with... More

Blue that barbecue has been around forever and a day and that's what makes it so special. Established way back in the 30's and 40's Blue Dot has stayed in the same family for all this time. The Bar BQ is quite delicious but its the burgers that have really given Blue Dot its claim to fame in Pensacola. it's... More

Want a good burger? Get in line, order a burger, get some chips, a canned pop n get out of the way. This place means business when whipping out those burgers. Simply, good burgers!

Just a straight up no frills burger joint, serving up the most fantastic hand pattied burgers around. Dare I say the best I have ever had! Your burger comes the way they make it.... special orders do upset them so don`t bother. Burgers, chips, and canned soda.... cash only. I love Five Guys, and Whataburger, but Blue Dot is the...

You will either love this place or hate it. Personally I love the burgers (they don't have any thing else, except sometimes they have what they call a rib sandwich.) I love every thing about Blue Dot. This is not burger king and if you want it your way you will not like it. There are no fries. There are... More
