Blue Dot barbecue in Pensacola has been voted one of the best burgers year in and year out, and it is definitely worth the trip. But there are some things you need to know! First off, blue dot burgers only come one way unless you don't want some of the toppings. They come with the grilled bun, diced onions and tomatoes, and salt and pepper, blue dot burgers do not come with pickles or cheese and it is hilarious to see a newbie trying to order a cheeseburger. My advice to you is definitely getting with sauce! The sauce is the homemade barbecue sauce that they put on the ribs and if you do not get your burger with sauce you will regret it the rest of your life! Trust me you want your burger with sauce. Now there is a trick to ordering at blue dot. If you walk in and the gentleman behind the counter is taking orders you're in luck, you'll be able to place your order then. But, if on the other hand he is walking back into the kitchen, Or he is already in the kitchen you have missed that round of ordering and you must wait until all of the orders have been cooked before you can place your order! Yes, it is worth the wait. They do not have french fries they only have chips they do not have a drink fountain they only have canned drinks. It certainly is a very unique place to go and has been around as long as I can remember. The burgers are absolutely delicious and dripping, literally dripping with flavor. I usually get two blue dots all the way add sauce barbecue chips and a Diet Coke. So there you have it friends the secrets to ordering at the dot. Do try to blend in, remember no pickles or cheese and no french fries or onion rings. I would suggest getting there right as they open, around 1130 or after 130. The lunch crowd is tremendous! Oh by the way the ribs are good too.

Great place to get a good burger. Don't judge by the outside. Not a lot of place to sit but good burger. No menu's up but some laying on the counter. Basically they have hamburgers and chips and drinks. Ribs on 2nd. and 4th Saturday.

Real beef, soft bun, good stuff. Stop by for lunch only, cause that's when they are open. The make the food, you eat it. Swart deal.

Not known for advertising...just look for the blue building. Order a burger (you get what you get!) but you won't be disappointed. Not much room to dine but carry-out is the norm.
