Small town Americana at its finest. The Bulldog is THE place to go get a quick bite in Bald Knob and the STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE. It’s the bomb! I took my wife, daughter and her family for an early evening dinner and had a great time....Food was good and service was fast. Dessert was the best! Recommend this to everyone!More

A friend of my husband's suggested we eat at the Bulldog Restaurant since we were passing close by on our trip to Texas. We were glad we took his advice. Everyone was friendly and the place was very clean. We got our food quickly. The...hamburgers were great, but the strawberry shortcake was even better!More

We stopped here on a whim passing through this small town. You could tell from the packed parking lot it was going to be good. It’s a counter service menu with a large variety of traditional items like hamburgers, hot dogs, pulled pork sandwiches and...even taco salads. They also offer plates with 2 sides and the catfish seemed to be super popular. Homemade desserts looked amazing. Fried pies were almost irresistible but we had a long drive. So glad we stopped at this diner. Friendly, clean and amazing food.More

Wow! Driving the back way home across the state and saw the crowd . Had to try and it was so worth it . Be ready for a line and waiting for a seat but the food is great. The fish , fries and onion...rings are fantastic. The hush puppies are out of this world and the homemade shortcake desserts are off the charts ! Worth the drive and bring the family !More

Inexpensive food that is very quick. The main reason to stop here are the milkshakes and other desserts. The food itself is obviously frozen but for the price it’s hard to beat.

Stopped here two weeks in a row while passing through the area. Food was good. Strawberry shortcake was delicious! Can’t wait to stop in again in the future.

Stopped on our way to Judsonia. Ordered grilled chicken breast sandwich, small fries. Really good. So you can eat here even if you're dieting. I shared the small fries and they are actually small. A normal portion for once! We love the Bulldog.
