Best burger in town

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.

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

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, just hamburgers! Very tasty... More
