Hi! It has been awhile! Summer is a busy time for everyone and its harder for Dad and I to get our schedules aligned as easy to have lunch on a regular basis. We have gone to a couple places in the last month and a half. This one was a Dad pick, The Blue Line.
The Blue Line is on Walnut, near the City Market. Don’t be fooled by the fact that it is a bar as the food there is great!
When we got there, we picked a seat near the window so we could do some people watching as we ate. The place is decorated in hockey gear and memorabilia as you would expect with it being a hockey bar and such.
As we are to do lately, we started with an appetizer. We went with the “Locker Shrooms”. If you are a fan of mushrooms, these are a MUST. If you are on the fence about mushrooms, these are a MUST. I am usually pretty ambivalent about mushrooms but these are a MUST HAVE. They are huge portobello mushrooms that are sliced into long potato wedge type slices then breaded and fried. They are served with a side of what they call “comeback sauce”. I also asked for some ranch because ranch is awesome with anything fried! These were perfect. I want to go back right now for some more of these.
For meals Dad and I both went with sandwiches. I went with the “Sabres Chicken Sammie” with a side of onion rings and Dad had the “Blues Bacon Turkey Club” with tater tots.
Both of us really enjoyed our sandwiches. There was an aioli on my sandwich that really pulled the whole thing together. Oh. The onion rings. They were huge and cooked perfectly. Soft and sweet and perfect. Mmmmmmmmm!!!
I have recommended this place to many people since we went there and want to take people there.
