Not saying they are THE best in the cities, but I can't decide! I love the latin kisses and the frenchie burger. Place is small and cosy, but very friendly staff.

You just can't beat The Blue Door Pub for stuffed burgers. We chose the original location in St. Paul because it's so quirky, but it's also small and that makes parking tough and a lineup inevitable. However we only had to wait about 15 minutes for seats at the tiny bar. We opted for fairly classic choices -- the Juicy... More

We got there just when there was a spare table but 10 minutes later there was a queue 5 deep. You can see why - the burgers are amazing, the wings are lovely and the beer choice is fantastic. Get a burger with blue cheese - yum!

Get there early or off-peak if you don't want to wait for a table. This is a friendly comfortable neighborhood pub serving delicious burgers and sides. Typical of the Twin Cities (yay) there is a nice selection of local craft beers available. The side orders are large, so be careful to not over-order...your burger may be enough! Friendly service.

We were visiting our daughter at college and made a point of eating at the Blue Door Pub after seeing the high ranking it had on TA. We were not disappointed. We arrived mid-afternoon, so there wasn't a wait. There were happy hour specials--bonus!! Our server was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Our group tried the breakfast blucy, horsekick...

Worth the short drive from downtown Minneapolis. Great atmosphere, great beer. Are at the bar and had an amazing burger made with short rib meat. Asked bartender to order what he would eat. Not even sure id it's on the menu but was worth twice the price. Go and enjoy I will be back for sure.

Guy F and DDD are the reason I visited the Blue Door, and I'm glad I did. Obviously popular, they were packed inside. The day was nice, so I sat outside (only drawback is you can't order booze, but that's not a deal killer for me). I started off with the Latin Kisses, which are jalapenos that they slice in... More

Blue Door is a small burger restaurant. The burgers are "stuffed" with the extras you add. Fries/tator tots are extra but it was a great value.

Yum, yum, yum! Great burgers and fries, tiny place and lots of character. So good that I told my boyfriend that if I'm not at home, I'll be here! : )
