I have been wanting to stop in to Good Dog for years, especially after seeing them on DDD. I work in center city, but usually stay closer to One Liberty for lunch and usually just get a sandwich. Went for lunch on a Friday with an old friend who was in town. The place was packed, upstairs and down. It's a narrow shotgun type of location that might be 20 feet wide and 100 feet long, bar on the left as you walk in with booths on the right.
Tap list was about 12 beers, well selected, but nothing I haven't seen before. Lagunitas IPA, Allagash, etc. Soup of the day was mushroom barley. Comes in one size, a huge cereal type bowl and it was quite delicious. Broth based, not cream. A bit greasy on top, but fine by me. Really good.
I then tried the signature burger with the pocket of blue cheese in the middle and a huge mound of fries on the side with chipotle dipping sauce. My 3 star rating is because the soup was a 5 but the burger and fries were a 1. The blue cheese wasn't very blue. No real tang or blue cheese flavor. Could have been American for all I could tell. Tasty bacon with it, but not enough to save it. It was a bacon burger. I can get that anywhere. The fries were a joke. Big pile of soggy, greasy, limp French fries with no flavor other than frying oil. The chipotle dipping sauce was mayonnaise and if there was something chipotle in there, you could have fooled me.
Not sure I will bother going back. There are lots of better choices in center city. Go ahead and try it, but don't expect it to blow you away.
