We had a late business meeting and decided to try The Bulldog NE. The burgers were great, but DO NOT FORGET THE TOTS! Their potatoe tots with Wasabi mayo is fantastic! We will most definitely go back on our next trip to Minneapolis.

If you are looking for burgers and bar food (think tater tots and inventive grilled sandwiches) this is the place. They grind their own meat on the premises for their very good burgers, and you are greeted at the door by a platter of always delicious looking huge cupcakes and homemade hohos. Good place for a burger with the kids... More

Fantastic burgers and fries!!! Just about anything you can imagine on your quality beef. Call ahead for reservations for parties over 2, not a lot of seating for big groups. Great service, fun bar and good tunes. Try the truffle tator tots!

We have been here multiple times for dinner. It's one of the few american restaurants having good option for vegetarians. We have loved the food each time we have been there. It's got a college atmosphere and ambience is good and lively. It's a perfect place to have a drink and grab a bite.

Showed up on a Saturday evening. Got carded at the door. It is a bar, after all. I had only one thing on my mind: hot dish. In fact, that's what I told my server, Lisa. She was really excited at the prospect of being a part of such a momentous moment for me. I asked her to suggest a... More

The Bulldog has great sandwich specials that pack an interesting flavor punch! The service is always prompt even when the bar is busy, and the food has never disappointed.

I stopped here on a Sunday afternoon for a late lunch with my family. We were seated right away and a waitress immediately greeted us even though it was pretty busy. The waitress was very attentive and friendly, the food ( 3 of us ordered the Steak Salad and 1 ordered the Club Sandwich) was excellent and prices were reasonable.... More

You could take the most diverse group of foodies here and everyone could find something to their liking on the menu. It's all freshly made and wonderful too. I'm not a tater tot fan but my friends all rave about them. We go here regularly and always enjoy it. Plan a little extra time, the service is good but relaxed... More
