This place was great. The atmosphere was laid back and there was plenty of beers to choose from. They offer some shall I say different or not expected menu choices. The combinations work. The food is fantastic and if your looking for a little something unexpected then this is the place to go. Burgers are great.

On a mission to try more burgers in the Twin Cities. The burger ordered was the Lafrieda. The burger was simple and delicious. Always love a place that serves tater tots. Good local beer selections. Atmosphere is a typical bar, lots of viewing screens for sports watchers.

Was suggested for a different change of pace. It's your typical bar scene but it was a great crowd of young,old and so seemed that everyone fit in. The menu had a nice variety of food choices. I had the French dip and it was good with the perfect amount of spice and the sauce was really good. Have to... More

My dining mate and I were a little put off by the fact that they went out of their way to ask us how we wanted our meat cooked - but then they failed to cook our hamburgers the way we ordered them. I ordered medium and it came drippy pink all the way through, my friend ordered medium rare... More

Tried this restaurant at the recommendation of local friends. Loved it! The atmosphere was casual but just right. The food was wonderful! Tried a couple of great appetizers including truffle tots, wonton and sliders. Had the corned beef sandwich with braised brussel sprouts. Others in the group had a burger and chicken and waffles. Everything was great! Combine that with... More

What fantastic service and great hearty food! The tater tot menu is amazing! I had the tater tot casserole, a play on the traditional, but it had melt in your mouth shredded beef and caramelized Brussels sprouts. I will definitely return.

I just learned that you can order the sliders in vegetarian form. The different variations of black bean burger sliders were so fun! A perfect compliment to the burgers is the french fries with wasabi sauce and is worth the trip alone. YUM!

My boyfriend and I went to The Bulldog NE because I really wanted to eat authentic hot dish in Minnesota. They had a pretty decent menu overall (drinks, entrees, and dessert). We started with an Iron Horse root beer and a milkshake, both of which seemed a tad overpriced, but were good. The hot dish was excellent. It came with... More

Went with friends for lunch on a Friday. The menu offered a huge selection of appealing options. We each tried a different burger and they were all excellent! The seasoned fries (with either wasabi or truffle aioli mayo) were delicious. They also have a great selection of beers. The place got busier over the time we were there and our... More

I have family that lives north of Minneapolis. I have yet to make a trip to the area without going to the Bulldog. I have even gone twice in one trip. It is that good, really. I have never had a burger or sandwich I didn't instantly fall in love with. I have seen two people order "healthier" options and... More
