Went here with our 2 kids and had a great experience. I had the pulled pork sandwich and house BBQ chips and it was hands down one of the best I've ever had.

At first we were seated at two tables accross from one antoher which was fine! It was on us that we came in that late in the game with that many people. They... More

Four of us had dinner at Blue Tractor. Very cool setting, right next door to a large parking deck so was convenient. The others had BBQ and really enjoyed it, I had the pizza which was just ok although I read it was great.

We've visited here many times for lunch and have had great sandwiches and soup. They also have a delicious macaroni and cheese served with different choices of meats and it's soo good! It's a popular place in the summer and street parking is more limited now but there is a parking garage right behind them.

Yummy yummy. I customized my burger to my taste. No one complained. Mac and cheese was fabulous, like homemade! And the fries, perfect complement. Way to full for dessert. Fair prices, worth it for sure!!!

Their sauce has a little kick to it, but all of the food was delicious. The fries had a sweet taste to them. Great atmosphere and menu selections. Family friendly and just a little wait on a Friday night. They even gave my husband a birthday dessert - ice cream sandwich - with delicious homemade cookies!

Had dinner at the Blue Tractor with some friends. The atmosphere is great. Rustic, laid back, and comfortable. Great selection of food, mostly meat and meat.
