We have walked by this little shop many times, today we finally walked in. There is a small seating area or a great place to grab and go. We had the "dog" special and the other special of the day, fiddle heads. Both delicious. There is a nice small selection of sandwich and dogs, or create your own. Great for lunch or a quick bite

We tried Blue Rooster after hearing the good reviews about their mac & cheese. Unfortunately it was bland. The cheese was very mild and there was no seasoning. We left most of it untouched. Our next dish was the tot-tines which were the best thing we had. The gravy was good but the tater tots got a bit soggy. We also tried a hot dog with sauerkraut which was very mediocre. It is cute and small inside and has bar seating with about 10 seats. This place had great potential...not sure if I'll be back.

The fried Brussel sprouts with sweet chili are crisp, tangy and no fry taste. Excellent flavor. The Caroline pork sandwich is made with the best biscuit we have ever eaten. We will return again.

We were looking for a late lunch in the Old Port, on a Saturday, which isn't as easy as it sounds even in this foodie town. A lot of the restaurants here that serve a nice lunch, only do so on weekdays and then open for dinner only on Sat. There are tons of brew pub type places with the wings and fries, but there just had to be a really good bite out there and boy did we find it.
At The Blue Rooster, it's order at the counter and seating is several stools facing the wall or a couple of benches that are turned to the only window and of course takeout.
We ordered Caroline's Pulled Pork sandwich, served on a huge homemade biscuit. Nicely seasoned tender pork, chopped slaw and sour dill pickle slices made for the best sandwich I have had in a long time. About 6 sandwiches were on the board along with several hot dog combinations. Seems each menu item has been perfectly crafted to give a spark to the taste buds. All I can say is "umami"!

A friend and myself were traveling up the coast of Maine around Labor Day 2013. A friend had mentioned Blue Rooster so I thought we would add it to our itinerary. We were not disappointed.
We had eaten breakfast in Portsmouth, NH and weren't really hungry so thought we would have a snack. We ordered one lobster roll, tater tots and fried Brussel's sprouts to share. The lobster roll was wonderful, the tater tots were too, but the sprouts were absolutely incredible. Don't miss this gem, you won't be sorry.
