Just to give you an idea of how good a sandwich shop this is, I'm starting a low carb diet tomorrow and this is where I went for my last carb laden meal. Love their chicken sandwiches. They flatten it so it completely covers the bun, which means chicken in every bite. Did I mention it is locally owned? A hidden gem. Go here instead of any of the sandwich chains. Trust me. You will not be disappointed.
Super delicious sandwich and great staff. I need gluten free food with no cross exposure. Staff was super careful with my food prep, including clean gloves and a separate prep area. I did not experience any ill effects after eating here. Will definitely return.
Stopped in for lunch on a cold, wet MN day. Great tunes, happy staff enjoying their work, and great overall hospitality. I was blown away by the food too. Thick but tender roast beef, subtle blue cheese, killer tomato, and just enough bun. Coming back to try the rest. They had a Banh MI special this time around. It was pretty good. Good amount of heat served "spicy" so fair warning to those who find ketchup daring.
I don’t know why we’ve never tried this place sooner! We’ve lived close for years, but I think we always assumed it was just another sandwich shop chain. WRONG! It’s family owned, and the people who work there are so sweet and genuine. They make homemade soups every morning like mushroom, tomato, potato, and beer cheese. The mushroom is AMAZING, and we’ve yet to try the beer cheese (but it comes highly recommended). The sandwiches are made right in front of you, and they cook the meat to order. We’ve really liked the Big Joe and Honeycrisp Melt with chicken. Can’t wait to go back and keep trying more!
I was informed by Google, the food is match 99% for you. My girlfriend and I decided to go. My girlfriend ordered the sawmill. It was very good. I ordered the mighty buffalo. It wasn't that bad. I got milkshake. It was good! We'd love to go there again to order different sandwich! :)
I recommend the gyro.
Amazing food! Great pricing! Friendly and helpful staff! Outdoor and indoor seating options! Speedy and awesome all around! Highly recommend!
Great sandwich place! Way better than Subway. Not a huge menu, but lots of ways to customize your sandwich. They have good GF bread too. A friendly staff and a cozy atmosphere make for a great lunch experience. Check it out! Btw, I've eaten here at least 5 times & haven't been disappointed yet.
Good sandwiches and shakes!!!
I've been coming here since they opened and have never been disappointed. I love the fact that it's locally owned and you can even get served by the owners themselves. I get the Big Joe every single time and it's always made fresh. Never change, Blue Ox!
Love this place! I always get delivery to my work. They deliver when they say they are going to & the food is always hot. My favorite is their Gyro which they don't advertise on their menu. Delicious!
From scratch soup and real roast beef sandwhich with au jus yum No arbys here no fake pressed meat
We were in Burnsville and decided to try this place. The line was almost out the door, but moved quickly. Our sandwiches were quality! We'll be bringing back our family and friends. :)
I was nextdoor to it ,at another shop . I did see a lot of people going in.
My first time visit to Blue Ox was a very nice experience. The staff was very friendly and made me feel they appreciated my business. They provided very personal service which makes me recommend this gem of a sandwich shop.
Absolutely wonderful local sandwich shop. Friendly staff, cozy atmosphere, wide variety of tasty sandwiches and then some. Try The Shore Lunch. Without a doubt the best walleye sandwich I've ever had.
Nice local place to stop in for lunch. Great service and great food. We had the Italian sandwich and the Sawmill and both were amazing! The Sawmill was my favorite, the bread and chicken were excellent. Tried the Tomatoe basil soup as well and that was also great. Also, had to try their shakes as well. Had the chocolate shake and it was excellent. Excellent stop and loved all the MN local photography around the restaurant. All the workers were helpful in their recommendations and they were all friendly and great to work with.
Nice little independent sandwich shop with a wide variety of sandwiches. Some of my favorites are the Honeycrisp Melt (vegetarian option), Rueben and the Paul’s Favorite (meatloaf sandwich). Good portion size for the price, friendly staff, and a nice clean cozy interior seating area. Their milkshakes are a little on the thin side, not a bad thing gust FYI.
The Buffalo Chicken sandwich is incredible. Cooked to order it is fresh and fried perfectly. Also an option to get grilled chicken instead. The meatloaf sandwich is homemade and the perfect comfort food. Love all the options for toppings as well. Everything I've had here is great, definitely worth the stop.
This place is consistently awesome. High quality with friendly service. Have never had anything bad here.
The food is good. It’s a nice variety of options. The high rating is much deserved due to their customer service. Despite being very busy during the lunch hour, every employee was very friendly and attentive!
Great Sandwich shop. The staff is always super friendly.
Their chicken sandwiches are excellent. All are made when you order and not before. It's a great little place.
Great Sandwiches and awesome variety! This place was fast with great service!
Very very nice sandwich (sammich) shop in Burnsville. The creations all utilize very fine ingredients in each step of the process. The staff are all very nice, helpful, and knowledgeable. The chicken sandwiches are particularly impressive! Definitely worthwhile stopping here as opposed to one of the national chains!
Wed. June 12th 6pm-ish: recieved awesome service and even more awesome sandwiches.
Best sandwiches in town. Fresh. Low price. Great people. Clean. Everything you could ask for in a joint
First time at Blue Ox. Had lunch with my brother and son. Sandwiches were delicious and the shake was yummy! Definitely hit the spot!
Awesome food !!! Friendly upbeat staff on lunch hour. Good gyros!!!
Absolutely one of my favorite eateries! I stop here every time I'm in Burnsville. They offer unique and deliscious seasonal options as well as the classic favorites. The milk shakes are very good.
Great sandwiches and super friendly staff make this place a great stop every time.
I always order delivery due to working locally but the staff at Blue Ox Sandwich are by far the friendliest, most efficient staff anywhere! The food always arrives within minutes piping hot and fresh by a smiling person. They need higher star counts at Blue Ox! (:
A small sandwich shop with a little better variety than the standard chains. I had the meatloaf sandwich on a roll. The sandwich had a good flavor and came with chips and a drink for a reasonable price. Service was very friendly and prompt. Overall a good experience and worth checking out.
First time here and the food, service and atmosphere were all very good. Would definitely return.
Great place for a French dip, updated my score to 5 stars from 4!
The staff is so friendly and the sandwiches are deeeelish!
Awesome locally owned sandwich shop. Friendly, fast service where almost everything is made in house. All of their staff is exceptional. You can tell this place cares and wants you to come back. It’s the definition of what a locally owned store should be!! After another poor experience at the Jersey Mike’s on Cliff I will be making the slightly longer drive to Blue Ox from here on out, where I know I’ll get a great sandwich at an affordable price. Even if I have to drive a little further.
Great buffalo chicken sandwich!
Want a great sandwich that isn't the same thing you get at the chain places? Blue Ox is your jam then! Delicious, unique sandwiches and friendly staff.
Very good subs. Smaller portions than Subway but better quality sandwiches. Shakes aren't bad either.
The Chicken & Waffle Sandwich was next level and the cherry milk shake was delicious.
Great food! So glad I stopped to try this place on my way through Minneapolis. Staff was polite and very helpful. Giving suggestions on what went well w the amazing sandwich. Soup was delicious! Little bummed I didn't get to try the shakes as they were out of ice cream. So guess I'll just have to go back, dang!
Yummy sandwiches and excellent Beer Cheese Soup. Great staff!
Best buffalo chicken sandwich around. Hands down.
This is a mom and pop shop with amazing customer service and delicious food. The Rueben sub was fantastic! Highly recommend based on cost, atmosphere and food! A++
It was amazing!
Amazing sandwiches! Seriously the best sandwich shop out there. The chicken is fried to order and perfectly crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. If you're craving an amazing chicken sandwich there is no comparison. Big Joe/ Mighty Buffalo are two of my favorites, but the walleye sandwich and meatloaf are delicious too.
Yummiest sandwiches around. Friendly staff that knows the menu for recommendations. Unique and better than other sandwich shops. And they have shakes too!
I'm not sub person, but my husband requested we come here as his choice while we were in the cities. As someone who doesn't care for sandwich joints, let me tell you this one is outstanding!! The bread is amazing and the shakes are to die for. We will definitely be back next time we're in the cities! We actually went back for our last lunch before heading home. We had to, it was too good. :)
Food is good but the portions are are inconsistent. But typically the proportions have not been enough.
Pretty darn good crispy chicken sandwich... freshly breaded and fried. It's too bad they don't have french fries... and I was disappointed that the caramelized onions were done ahead of time and warmed up. I get that it's kinda fast food, but if they didn't use shortcuts like that, I think it'd only help their restaurant be even better.
Always delicious fresh bread, homemade sauces and high quality meats. I like how they have unique topping recommendations for each sandwich. I don't drive through Burnsville without stopping.
Great sandwiches, bread is soft and a little crunchy on the outside. Friendly service and really good malts!
Can't say enough awesome things about here! The staff was amazing and very fast. Recomend it to those who want the BEST sandwich shop!
Good sandwiches but a little pricey.
Really good sandwiches friendly staff good food all around
Great sandwich shop that has plenty of options and home made soup.
Great sandwiches and the people that work there are very helpful. Fresh ingredients, great bread and toasted!
I am honestly obsessed with their mighty buffalo sandwiches. I dont go into my work often but when i do, i have to order atleast 4.(i live over an hour away) I have indeed tried their other food also, and i havnt had anything i dont like. However.... The mighty buffalo is my favorate. How can i get a free supply of mighty buffalos for life? -lynk
This place is a great place to eat lunch. A family-run business that has great food and customer service. Their buffalo chicken sandwich is huge and is second to none in the Twin Cities.
Amazing sandwiches, the reuben is my favorite!
Great shakes and malts ....
The staff are welcoming. The gyro was tasty. My husband and I both enjoyed the vanilla milkshake very much, it was delicious! Really like the Minnesota touch in the restaurant also. Would recommend!
I like this place a lot. The sandwiches are very good. The fried chicken buffalo Sammy is killer. I like how they will actually fry it up to order. No one wants old or frozen chicken. Yuck! I also like their malt shakes. They go great with a sandwich. Their soup sounds good, too. I have to make a.point to try it.
Sandwich was really good.... Service was fast.... Not a bad sandwich shop give them a try
Best sandwich shop in the Twin Cities. Never had a bad sandwich and they even give you a free sandwich the week of your birthday if you are part of their rewards program! Staff is always upbeat, and very helpful!
Great Service, great food
I've only been once but it was super good. I got the rueben and it was better than any other fast food sandwich I've ever had.
Food was great we had a meeting with old friends stayed probably close to 2 hours
Been here a few times always good. Family owned staff very helpful. Wish there were more of them around.
Love this place! There hasn't been a sub or salad that I haven't loved! Plus the service is awesome and everyone has been very friendly every time we have eaten there!!!
Fantastic local sandwich shop. It's got good food at great prices. Definitely give it a shot if you are looking for a quick bite!
Stopped in and had the Spring Thing chicken sandwich. Very tasty and not overly huge, just the right size! The peppadew cream cheese is a nice touch. The staff were friendly and smiley. I'll definitely be back!
Honest to God the best place in the city, if not state. Seriously. The fried chicken sandwiches are HUGE and delicious (I had the buffalo, very good). The meatloaf sandwich is awesome with the lettuce and tomato on it, the chili is good with just enough bite, the Oreo shake is to die for, and the taco salad served with chili as the meat is genius and so good on a hot day. They deliver to my work (a nursing home) and we always group order because we all think this place is the best, and fast/great prices. So glad I was turned on to this place!
The food alone deserves more than 5 stars! But the customer service is just as great. I have never had a bad experience with this place. I called close to the end of their business delivery time and they were nice enough to still deliver to me in a timely manner. You guys rock! Thanks for being so awesome.
Love Blue Ox! The food is delicious, seating is comfortable, and the staff is very helpful and friendly!
Great food and fast, friendly service!
Love this place. Friendly staff and good food!
I see there is a lot of people that love this place. Maybe i had a bad experience but this was my first time coming here. 1 The first thing, the person that was puting on meats and handling the bread did not have gloves on. 2 they told me double meat was one dollar but when i got the recipe it was 2.50. 3 when i got sandwich #2, it was not good-There was no flavor in the meat it self, it was like simple sandwich meat from walmart and the bread was breaking up in my hands, it did not stay together at all. Maybe i should try this place again, but i would rather go to a different place that i know would not let me down and use better quality of breads and meats. For a cheaper price i paid there.
I really liked the sandwich and salad I’ve had when I’ve been to blue ox. Their food is very understated, yet delicious. The salad was super fresh and tasty. Staff was very nice and accommodating to all requests. Sandwich was messy but delicious. Crowd inside trends older.
Great service fresh food and homemade shakes
I had the "sawmill". This is the best chicken sandwich I've had. The only downside to this place is that there aren't more locations. I would eat two meals a day here if I didn't have to drive 30 minutes. (To the owners: please set up shop in Roseville :) Thanks!)
Great place, great staff and great sandwiches. The French dip is fantastic. If you get a sandwich follow up with one of their awesome raspberry milk shakes.
Go to sandwiches: Sawmill, mighty Buffalo, and Paul's favorite. Oh and you can't go wrong with a gyro. Their shakes/malts are great too. Raspberry banana malt!
Amazing service and food
Love this place! Great people and even better sandwiches and malts. A must try.
Great service and some of the best, most unique sandwiches around.
I think they do a great job, they are patient when you can't make up your mind, and they are very friendly! They need to have somewhere to leave tips!!
Great food. A bit pricey
Was a good sandwich. And made quickly. Will be back.
Lots of sandwich options including gluten free (gluten free bun was amazing!). Staff can provide suggestions for sandwich toppings based off what you order. Also have soup, salads and small dessert options.
I've been a couple times and enjoyed each time I went
The #1 the Italian sub is a joke. I've had better Sub sandos from a vending machine. That sandwich needs to be blown up totally pathetic interpretation of a classic italIta sub.
Good sandwiches and soups in a convenient location. Made a quick pit stop before going to a movie, plan on doing that again!
Made to order sandwiches at reasonable prices. So much better than chain fast food.
Great place. Everything is delicious. Staff is very friendly too.
Great food and atmosphere!
It's a bit pricey for a sandwich but probably some of the best sandwiches around. Workers are very friendly so it is always a pleasure to dine there.
Great little sandwich shop with an out of the way location. The selection is good and satisfying with smaller than average portions. Definitely worth a look!
Great food, charming atmosphere. Wonderful people. Love this cute little shop. Love the malts too!!
Really good food and very reasonably priced! I had their hot roast beef plate (known as a roast beef commercial in my area) and it was delicious! Mashed potatoes, roast beef on bread, covered with gravy! Very good!
My favorite sandwich shop. I have been going here since they opened. Comfy atmosphere, convenient location and the owner is awesome.
Blue ox is always fantastic. I have been coming almost weekly for a couple months, and I am wowed every time. The quality is amazing, the price is reasonable, and the customer service is refreshing. The mighty buffalo is definitely a go-to. Beer cheese soup is the best around
This place is a solid 5 star. Every time I go, it’s amazing. Also, every time I bring someone new and ask them they say they’d give it 5 stars.
Super nice staff and tasty sandwiches. Had the jerk chicken and loved it!
Sure good and very reasonably priced if you just get the sandwich
Great food, excellent service, clean and friendly. Highly recommend.
wonderful sandwich great employees. not enough options
Love their sandwiches!
Very. Good. Sandwiches. Period
Excellent alternative to Jimmy John's and subway. I love that they have a sub based around apples and cheese! Super yummy tuna melt sub.
I'm always impressed with their sandwiches. Definitely recommend! They care and do a great job. The sandwich I ate today was the best I've ever had... a true value! Thanks Blue Ox
Surprisingly my first time here but definitely looking forward to my next visit! Had the Big Joe and left feeling satisfied but not stuffed, which is a good thing;). Everyone was super friendly and efficient without making you feel rushed. Don't let the lines intimidate you!
We stopped here for lunch on our way to Iowa. It was super easy to hop off I-35 and the food was fast and delicious! We got a French Dip, Big Joe sandwich, and two bowls of soup. Everything was good, but our favorites were the Big Joe and the tomato basil soup! The staff was very friendly and efficient. We were so happy to find this place and will definitely be back!!
The best sandwich spot in the Twin Cities hands
The mighty buffalo is my all time favorite sandwich, from anywhere. If it crosses my mind, my mouth waters until I get it.
Yum! Love this little gem!
The food is amazing. I did a doordash from blue ox without ever having tried their food so I was a little worried but I was so happy with what I got. I ordered the ruben, gyro and chili (i'm indecisive) and all three of the things I ordered were really good. I would definitely order from this place again. Definitely better than any other sandwich place around here.
Blue Ox has the best sandwiches around! I've been there three times, got something different each time. They've all been amazing! The staff is competent, quick and nice. Can't go wrong with Blue Ox, I'd give them seven stars if I could!
Excellent! Went with a group of four and we each split our sandwiches so we could try some different ones. The Reuben on rye was my favorite. We also had a french dip that was excellent and a grilled chicken with cream cheese spread and cucumbers that was messy but delicious and the Meat Axe, not my favorite but my brother, who is a butcher and meat enthusiast, enjoyed it. Their malts were pretty tasty as well. Service was fast and friendly. Will definitely be back.
Might Buffalo and The Sorry Babe are the 2 best burgers I ever tasted! Great service and you get your food quickly!
Local eatery with interesting sandwiches. I had the piled high hot salami without cole slaw and it was packed with flavor. Prices are good
A locally owned shop with a better variety than the chain sub restuarants, for example, a meatloaf sub. I was impressed at how the food was made fresh. When I ordered the walleye sandwich, they took out a fish filet, breaded it, and fried it to order. Very friendly staff.
Tried their special, a Texas BBQ Brisket sandwich, which was quite good. Honestly, I've had worse BBQ brisket sandwiches from dedicated BBQ restaurants in Texas, so this was especially impressive. I'd love to see this become a regular menu item.
The sandwiches are great here! I recommend the mighty buffalo.
Definitely the best sandwich place in the twin cities area! Amazing staff, atmosphere, and food. More than worth the price, still raving about my meal here.
The Blue Ox is the Babe of sandwiches in Burnsville. Some might argue that it is a fast food restaurant and I am inclined to disagree slightly due to the higher quality of food served here. My personal favorite is the walleye sandwich. Give them a shot you won’t be disappointed.
Good mom and pop sandwich place. The staff is always so pleasant. Great shakes. My only complaint is they need a couple more vegetarian options.
Great service and great staff. Food is really good and fixed perfectly.
I was hungry and wanting something light for lunch, so I googled restaurants in the area. Blue Ox had great ratings online, so I stopped by for lunch. I am so ecstatic that I found this awesome restaurant! It’s clean and quaint with a lovely menu on the wall. I am a picky eater but after reading the entire menu, I can honestly say I would try anything on the menu. I was greeted with a smile, and the gentleman who started my sandwich for me gave great recommendations for toppings and ways the sandwich tastes best. This is very affordable, and the quality of food is outstanding! I was served a toasted sandwich within a few minutes and it was the most delicious sandwich I have ever had. Ingredients were fresh and just amazingly paired together. I love the drink and chip options, and there are two indoor eating areas and even a patio area. This meal was just amazing, and I am already planning my next trip back. This is family owned and you can tell everyone who works there functions happily and kindly as a team. The kindness is contagious and the food is just so good, you have to try it!!! So I thought since I found Blue Ox on google, I would give them MY first ever google review.
It was amazing and the cherry shake yummy.
Amazing sandwiches across the board. They also have soup every day and shakes if you're looking for dessert. Plenty of seating indoors and out. You can't go wrong eating here.
Everything here is to notch. Try the Shore Lunch. It is an exceptional walleye sandwich. The capers really take it to the top. Unfortunately... I now find myself comparing ALL other walleye sandwiches to this one. None are as good.
Some sandwiches are better than others, but the variety is good, prices are fair, and staff is friendly.
Blue Ox has always had good food, but only recently seem to have livened up with some warm hearted workers. I noticed the difference right away and found out that the other guy who wasn’t super friendly (turned out to be the previous owner) was now gone. I think he just got burned out or something which is too bad but the new owners are lively and always ready with a smile with their superb customer service.
The food was fine and servers were a great help, but the menu is unusual and quite limited. They serve meatloaf sandwiches and grilled chicken with chips. They offer milk shakes but mine tasted like milk with crushed up Oreos. It was slightly disappointing.
Incredible sandwiches and service!!!!
The best sandwiches south of the metro! Try the Shore Lunch walleye sandwich; you won't regret it. :-)
Great food, friendly staff and cannot wait to go back!
Great sandwiches and service! Very friendly people!
Great sandwiches Quick and friendly staff
Not bad for a local store. Sandwiches are $8 if you add a drink and side soup it will be $15. Honestly nothing really special. It is just buns, meat and basic vegetables like tomato and lettuce. For that basic quality i say it is pretty overpriced. Just go to Subway unless you support local stores. I took off a star because tables were dirty.
I frequented this sandwich shop a few years ago a few times a week. and always had a good sandwich and the older man with glasses who ran the place was nice and was a good lunch spot when I used to go there a lot. I remember. I stopped by again during the recent snowstorm in April, and being in Burnsville for some appointments and I had wanted a sandwich and remembered BO. I thought the usual sandwich I used to get would be good, ordered it again, but it tasted of lower quality and did not taste the same, and was smaller than what I had before. The bread was soft, fell apart easy, soggy and tasted old, even though it went through the oven, was not toasted very good, did not stay hot long. It seemed like less meat on my sandwich, and should I have asked for a different sandwich,, but I got a important call I needed to attend to and had to leave and did not have time yo address my concern.The employees were nice though and they had Blue Ox hats, so it seemed more marketed and branded now. However; foodwise for me, it seemed more like sub shops that are everywhere and less like the place I used to enjoy..It was not worth the price I paid and for the size, I can go elsewhere and get a sandwich I desire...Thank you
I love sandwiches. And I love smaller, family owned businesses that take the time to make sure their ingredients are fresh. Oh, and I like that you can walk in, order a sandwich, and not walk out smelling like Subway. They make great food, quickly, and with a great attitude.
Gyro sauce needs garlic!
I had a soup and a full sandwich. The sandwich was very good and so was the soup. The cost was appropriate for sandwich and soup. The service was also fast and polite. My only problem was I was still kind of hungry afterwards. So I would say go for the taste not if you are very hungry. As a bonus they have shakes maybe malts too.
The last time I was here (2010) i had an amazing sandwich. This time it was average.
Great food, a little slow and spendy but really liked the food!
Loved the Gyro!!! Will definitely be back!
Delicious sandwiches - especially the fresh-baked bread
Love this place, lots of good sandwich options prepared quickly
Great place to eat food and staff are great
first time eating there. staff was friendly and made good recommendation. the mighty one was good. good value for food
Everything here is AMAZING. Awesome place. Sawmill sandwich is a favorite of mine.
Awesome place to grab food! Was pleasantly surprised as it was a spur of the moment decision to stop in and grab lunch. I highly recommend this place.
Stopped on our way to the movies tonight with the kids. Crazy good sandwiches. Awesome little shop!
