As the destination burger places proliferate, flavor and service are left at the door. I have been to the Blue Door Pub twice. The buns on the burgers are fresh and tasty. There I said something positive!! This pub has taken the "Juicy Lucy Lunacy" to a new level. Lets focus on overcooked blue cheese on a an overcooked burger.... More

This place is absolutely delicious. The twin cities favorite burger, but with bleu cheese. They also have a great selection of good beer. The restaurant is small, in a great way. Funky friendly staff who make good suggestions for things to try.

I came here for a takeout order for myself and a coworker. The place was packed on a Friday at lunch. The food was good. I ordered the fries with my classic Blucy. The tater tots looked better, so I think I will try that next time. The cheesy was so gooey and delicious.

There's always a wait for a reason. Plan on it! It's worth it. This is our favorite casual date spot. Great beer and awesome food. We both love the Jiffy Burger and cajun tots. The service is always friendly and prompt. (We like to go on a nicer day and go for a walk or grab a beer and relax... More

I went here with some girlfriends - when we meet, we only pick local, privately-owned places. We went to the location in St. Paul (there's a second one in Mpls). It was my first visit, so I was not familiar with some of the unique burger choices. I went for something a little more mainstream; my burger was great, and... More

My girlfriend was visiting from Scotland and I wanted to take her out for some local burgers and beer and I had heard good things about the Blue Door Pub. When we got there there were no seats but they said we could order at the bar so we ordered some beers and they asked for our id's. We're both... More

The Blue Door is only a couple block walk from my house, and I love having such a cool little pub nearby. That the burgers are great is an added bonus. The problem with Blue Door is that I hardly ever want to go because it's always so crowded and noisy in there. I met a colleague here for a... More

This place only has a few tables so go during off times or expect a long wait. Their burgers are huge and you can get them stuffed with just about any cheese you want. And add any toppings you want. Expect a food coma when you are done but worth splurging at least once.

After reading an article on Thrillist saying they were one of the top 21 spots to get wings in the U.S., we stopped at the Blue Door Pub on a Sunday at 4 p.m. The place is the size of a shoe box, so you will be super close to your neighbors and hear their every word, and they will... More
