Inside the 20-seat room (with nearly that many chairs outside), metal lunch pails line a freshly painted gray wall, seating is segregated into tightly spaced tables, and three stools form a minicounter. The music is '60s classics, the atmosphere is coffee-shop casual -- a nice little neighborhood spot. Food is American comfort, with most appetizers and salads under $10 and entrées under $20 (except weekend "white collar" specials). Start with pork and beans with a fried egg and sourdough toast, or a gutsy New Orleans-style dish of shrimp and grits with bacon and Worcestershire-based barbecue sauce. Another winning appetizer is tostones topped with vaca frita -- pulled frizzles of fried flank steak with orange mojo. Best of the main courses is often found within a trio of chalkboard specials: a rib item (short ribs, spare ribs, prime rib, etc.); a "parm" (chicken, veal, pork, etc); and a braised meat such as pot roast, brisket, or pork shoulder. A cheeseburger, cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon, a thermos of Panther Coffee, and desserts such as homemade berry cobbler make Blue Collar as American as, well, homemade berry cobbler.
