We heard about this place for years but never made it there. Big mistake. The menu is simple: burgers and ribs. You can get it dressed, with barbecue sauce or without, but no cheese. There are chips, no fries. Normally that would upset me, but the burger is so incredibly perfect, I didn't even care. The small building is certainly... More

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 summary: should you eat here? YES! Should... 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.
