I just moved in down the street and couldn't wait to check out the Blue Door since I had heard great things. I was a little disappointed upon my first visit, but the second, third and fourth visit has flipped my opinion over to the positive!

First, the place. As has been said before, this place is small, crowded and stinky. But so was the Triple Rock before they opened the music stage area. Get on the list for a spot ASAP if you need a table. They only have beer/wine, no cocktails nor are you supposed to drink outside.

Second, the beer. This was my big let down when I first visited. They only have 12 taps ... 2 Surlys, 3 Summits, a Bell's etc. I was hoping for more. But, 4 visits and 10 Surly's later I think I can deal with the small-ish selection. Especially since pints are $2 during happy hour.

Third, the food. This is the Blue Door's big claim to fame. They serve, among other things, a wide variety of "stuffed" burgers (Lucy's to the rest of you). I thought they were great. Not quite the dive charm of Matt's, nor the airport noise of the 9-8-7 club ... whatever that place is called. I signed up for the Blucy Club thing where you get a t-shirt once you have every one of the Blucy Burgers. Haven't had a bad one yet, though the Luau was a bit messy.

Fourth, ummm did I mention this place is crowded as hell? Yes? Well be careful of this if you are in the habit of getting a table right away at Toxic Hell or TGI McFunsters. As I said, get your name in right away with the hostess, or whom-ever is seating people. Be patient and dream of your "Breakfast" ... you'll see what I mean when you get there.

Yep, I can get greater selection somewhere else, but since I can stumble 3 blocks to the Blue Door, y'all can find me there sucking down $2 Benders and Tots.
