Here we go, my final blog of 2013! I hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year! My goal was to blog at least once a month in 2013 and I accomplished that goal. I’m going to continue that in 2014 and hopefully add another goal to that list.
I tried to visit the Blue Line Grille a few weeks back when I went to see Jeff Dunham at Consol but there was a 2 hour wait. So I lucky enough to try again this past weekend when I went to the Three Rivers Classic. As I looked over the menu there are a bunch of things I want to try. I decided to try a few of the big items first. For the first period I went with the Montreal Poutine Frites, which are a BLG Signature Item, and are fries with fresh Canadian cheese curds with house made pan gravy. These were fantastic! I’ve been wanting to try Poutine for a while now and these were worth the wait. The fries were fresh cut but also crispy, that was a nice surprise for fresh cut fries and the cheese and gravy didn’t make them soggy. These will be ordered every time I visit BLG from now on!
The second period I got an order of the Boneless Pens Wings with Peruvian Chimichurri sauce. Our server gave this sauce recommendation and I was a big fan! The boneless wings were crispy and a surprise was the blue cheese dressing on the side. I don’t think I’ve ever had better blue cheese. So far BLG is 2 for 2!
The third period was the main event, I ordered “The Old Two-Niner” Burger and comes with pepper jack cheese, wild mushrooms and franks red hot. Since I already had fries as an appetizer I decided to try the buffalo slaw. I’m not a big coleslaw fan, but when I was told this had hot sauce and blue cheese so I figured I’d try it. I wasn’t crazy about the buffalo slaw, the hot sauce and blue cheese didn’t do enough for me. Plus the whole sidedish was overpowered by onion. The burger itself was good, I could’ve used some more hot sauce on the burger or possibly some of that blue cheese I was a fan of earlier. Now I know for my next trip.
I was a big fan of Blue Line Grille and really can’t wait for a return trip. I need to check out the website to see if they have a wing night because my friends would really like to check out the wings here for our monthly wing night.
