“Expensive for bad food”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

The worst burger i have ever had and that includes jail food.. Do not waste you money here. The food was extra greasy with day old bread and the soda price is outrageous.

“Please come to Knoxville, TN!”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

I have lived in Knoxville, TN all my life, 65 years, and I grew up in the Blue Circle! I loved it so much. We have Krystal here now and it sucks. Is there any hope of Blue Circle ever coming back to Knoxville? The hamburger back in the day when I was growing up was ten cents! FF were 10 cents and so was a coke and there was a penny tax! Oh for the good ole days! But I'd gladly pay whatever just to have one here! Thanks, Betty Davis

“A landmark and local hangout .”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

The Circle as the locals call it, has been around since the early 50's and is famous for it's little round hamburgers At. lunch time you will find it packed with locals and first timers alike. You may drive up and dial in your order curbside or come in and order from a table or the old fashioned bar stools facing the grill. Smiles and laughter are served up along with great food ! Go where the locals go and visit The Circle !

“Very Disappointed”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

I live in Kentucky, but am from Bristol, Tn. I remember eating at Blue Circle many times. The burgers were always great. Until now....... I was visiting Bristol and made it a point to eat at Blue Circle. First, the sticker shock of 80 cents per circle burger seems a bit high to me. Second, the bread from the circle burgers stuck to the top of the wrapper, not just on one burger, but on all of them. The burgers did not taste freshly cooked. Which with the bread sticking to the wrapper, should have been a hint of how they would taste. We had to remove the top piece of bread to even take a bite. Stopped at Krystal on the other side of Bristol on the way home. Very disappointed.
