Oh Blue Dog, I love you. I know you're just a burger joint, but I still do. The burgers are on the thin side for my taste (I tend to prefer a little thicker patty where you can taste more of the beefiness), but you can't take an entire establishment by one small item alone. As it is a "Beer Tavern," the main thing you could judge them on is their beer -- and their selection is fantastic. It's constantly rotating and always interesting. On the burger front, I really do love The Squealer (a burger with BBQ!) and the Chi Chi (oh, sweet mercy, breakfast on a bun!). Oh, and their fries? Seriously, now I'm dreaming about their fries. I challenge you not to eat them all. Yes, they are that amazing. Go, now, for the good of the city!

Edit: While my assessment below stands... Please note that my reason for not liking the Blue Dog Tavern is because it's too damn successful. Seriously. There's really nothing that they can do about the issues I have with the place, short of knocking down the building and replacing it, which there's no room for on the lot. I'm sure it's the perfect place to stop and avoid some traffic on your evening commute on either the 101 or 405. The beer selection is awesome, and the food was quite good. For me, too many people and too loud. :/ I live a half a block away, and while they have some great beers, the place is too loud to even hear anyone 2 feet away from you without yelling. The service is abysmal because there are too many patrons most of the time as well. They do a lot of business even with these problems, so they must be doing something right. I've tried it a few times since it would be such a convenient place for me to go hang out, but it's not worth it... Unless you can manage to get one of a very few tables outside.

This is an awesome place to relax, have a great burger and fries and best of all, enjoy some really great beers. The staff has always been friendly, attentive, funny and can help the beer novices with their selection. We have been fans for years and will be for years to come. We love you, Blue Dog!!

The food here is great, the burgers are awesome and the beer is plentiful. The garlic fries are perfect; I usually kill an entire plate of them by myself. The staff is super friendly and attentive. The place is pretty small for the amount of traffic they get, but if you can head there on a weekday night and have a little luck it’s not bad at all.

The Blue Dog is a really awesome beer tavern with a terrific menu! Lots of delicious creative gourmet burgers and other healthier choices like salad and sandwiches and most of all a really great extensive craft beer selection. They have very thoughtful choices and great special events most every week. The atmosphere is also very cool...very friendly staff, great music, beautiful outdoor patio seating, and fun pictures of the customers' dogs all over the walls. A really fun and delicious beer tavern!
