I haven't eaten at Blue Circle since the 1980's. So today I took a chance and headed in. I'm glad I did. I had two Circle Burger sliders and a side of tots. Everything was hot and fresh, but what took me back was the...More

Love this place. I am honestly in there twice a week most weeks. The staff, atmosphere, and most importantly the food is fantastic. My favorite is the loaded omelette. The food is cooked fresh to order and is consistent. Even when they are slammed they...More

I've been eating Blue Circle all my life and it's as good as ever. I like the little burgers, but is actually one of my favorite places for hot dogs. The staff is friendly and service is quick. Well worth the visit.

Husband grew up with Blue Circle and I have had their burgers. Tried here for breakfast and was pleasantly surprised. Most everything is a la carte but worth it. High recommendations for the omelet and pancakes-made from scratch.
