Amazing Burgers

This place is friendly, busy and has great food and service. Don't miss trying the Jiffy Burger - burger, pepper jack cheese, bacon, pickle, crunchy peanut butter, mayo. I know, sounds like a strange combo but it's delish! Also try the beer-battered green beans - incredible!

One thing I enjoy about the Twin Cities is they are the home of the Juicy Lucy. This is a burger with the cheese cooked into the middle. Blue Door makes the widest variety (a peanut butter burger that will amaze you) and the best tasting Juicy Lucy's in the cities.

If the story about the bartender hasn't been embellished, I'm glad I didn't deal with him. I wouldn't go back! Instead, we were helped by a friendly Maddie (Matty?) while we sat outside,enjoying a nice breeze. Bummer that one can't have wine or beer al fresco! Loved the food, including the deep-fried greenbeans and the fish tacos.

The Blue Door Pub is a great place for a intimate, yet fun atmosphere (get a booth and have fun with the wall chalkboard!), decent beer selection (though I'd prefer more than Surly and Summit for local IPA options), and a solid burger. We've been here twice now and like even more the second time. We tried the "jiffy" the... More

I have been going to the Blue Door for 3 years and have eaten at both locations in total over 30 times. Blue Door continues to distinguish itself from its competitors in a myriad of ways. 1st Example: Blue Door has a consistent and reliable Web presence. They use twitter and instagram in a responsible and informative manner. They will... More

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.

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
