We decided to try out Blue Circle since we wanted something inexpensive and my girlfriend had never had a slider type sandwich before. It seemed like a cross between an old fashioned diner and a White Castle. The employees were nice but I think white...More

Blue Circle is a Bristol landmark. It has indoor seating (limited) but our favorite is to pull into the outdoor spots and order and have the food delivered to the car. I don't like the mini burgers (reminiscent of White Castle) but the larger ones...More
