    Potentially my favorite pub in Minnesota. Their burgers, though not traditional, are flipping unreal. The beer list makes me happy too.

    Their "Jiffy" rules the land. The fried chicken caesar was good as well. The onion rings were ok, not as crispy to my liking. The tots yum!

    It's a controversial choice for Juicy Lucys (not Matt's or the 5-8?), but the Blue Door Pub has got a damn good Blucy. Whatever they've got as the special blucy is always worth a try.
