We saw this restaurant on diners, drive in & dives so we wanted to try it during our recent visit to Miami. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is very small & they have tables outside as well. Its not much in the way of looks but don’t let that fool you. We didn’t order any appetizers so we can’t comment on them. We ordered the big ragout & the corben. Boy oh boy were they good. The portions were large & definitely sharable. We ordered the bread pudding for dessert. It was ok, nothing special. Overall we would recommend eating at this restaurant.

We always have a great meal. The spicy oxtail was tender and...spicy. The ragout was tender and yummy. The wedge salad ingredients are exactly what you want: great blue cheese dressing and high quality bacon. Even the toast with the oxtail was perfect - from a local bakery. Skin on fries hard to find in Miami. Wish I had room for dessert.

Great food and excellent service
Kitchen a bit slow
Unfortunately the decor is non existent and very shabby.
Not saying it has to be white table cloth, but it could certainly stand a redo...

Blue Collar is a go-to for us. It's crowded, noisy, energetic, vibrant. The food isn't pretentious, just delicious. Even though it's fairly meat-oriented, you can take vegetarian there without worry because there are always so very many vegetables on the chalkboard. We had never had the jambalaya before, and it is amazing. I give the food five stars because it's great for what it is and doesn't try to be what it isn't (though every old comfort dish seems to have its own special iteration). Blue Collar is small, right on Biscayne Boulevard and very urban--but all that adds to the charm. Oh, and try the Cuban sandwich egg rolls.

Food is always amazing. Service is superb. Great teamwork and always lovely to see familiar faces. Would say that the restaurant is a slightly too big for 1 server. However, staff handles themselves with poise, grace and expediency. Consistent top-notch dining experience

Not sure if it was an off day for the restaurant but the burger was bland. $17 for a bland burger was a disappointment. Also the Jambalaya was just not quiet right. The ratio between ingredients was off. Too much sausage. Not sure if I would be back.

This is the second time I visit blue collar and I thoroughly enjoy the food. So yummy, tasty, and just a treat!! Our service is always nice, the only complaint is the size of the restaurant and how tight it is. It’s very hard to move around. Going to the bathroom is a mission.

Best burger in the area no doubt. The french fries were perfect. Large steak- cut fried, perfectly fried. The quality of the burger satisfied all the burger cravings in me for a good year. The staff were friendly and service was quick.

As always, food was superb! Never disappoints.
I had the hardest time deciding between the jambalaya and the pappardelle. They do both so well!
Conch fritters were crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. Great dipping sauce. Best I've ever had!
Nice wine list.
Service was prompt and efficient.
If there were just better parking. (but I'll never let that keep me away)
BTW, we drive down from Boca Raton to eat here. Yes, it's THAT good!
