Best Burger Joint, Hands Down!

Don't miss this one. Guy Fieri often misses, but this one knocks it out of the park. Located in a residential neighborhood with 3-4 "antique" stores (somebody's junk is somebody's antique). Place was packed. It is actually what appears to be an old house and there is not a ton of seating nor parking. Their lot has maybe 8 spots... More

Our entire party loved the different burgers we ordered. This restaurant has a relaxing neighborhood bar ambiance. The spam bites were a big disappointment. Literally almost no spam. Just cream cheese and tasteless as well. Cheese curds were wonderful.

Ate here on a whim when in the area. So glad we did! The burgers we had were all excellent as were the fried cheese curds! Was plenty of food for the heartiest appetites and the stuffed burgers were amazing as was all the food. Also the staff there were excellent!!! We left full and satisfied and wishing we had... More

We have visited the Blue Door numerous times. Had been bragging the place up since my sister moved back from Long Island. Always, ALWAYs had excellent service and food. Then again things can change. Service was so so. Waited 10 minutes to get my ice tea after ordering it then the waitress said she would be right back with the... More

Nice neighborhood sports bar with mostly hamburger menu and craft beers. Their "bluey" burger (with bleu cheese) was yummy! The beer was interesting.. Service was good. A little noisy for my taste but that can be expected in this kind of establishment.

When visiting new places we like to try the local places. The Blue Door Pub did not disappoint. If you are looking for health food this place is not for you. We started with the Cheese Curds. The batter was light and light and perfect. However, the stars of the show are the burgers and if you want a great... More

My sister recommended this restaurant for a quick lunch. I ate here with my son I had the horsekick burger was great and the cajun fries were a nice change of pace from regular fries. The service was very good and prompt, the only complaint would be that the table had crumbs from the previous guests.

I was not very impressed with this burger. It was my first ever Jucy Lucy (I got the Bacon Blucy since I hate american cheese) and it was rather disappointing. It was a very lumpy and uneven burger-the cook clearly didn't care at all. It didn't even fill my entire burger bun. It could have just been a bad day... More

Wow! What a burger! I wasn't sure what to expect with this place. I had heard they had great burgers, but... It's a small restaurant, crowded, not much to look at but Holy Cow, great burgers! Very unique. I had the Blucy Lucy. A hamburger stuffed with blue cheese and garlic. It was easily one of the best burgers I... More
