I can’t believe there’s a 3 year difference between the first time I stepped foot into Bulldog Barbecue and Bulldog Burger. I was aware that Bulldog Burger was right next door but not that they’re essentially the same restaurant, there is only one menu.
Enough of that talk, let’s get on to the food.
We have to start with the cornbread. They are definitely shaped differently from the last time. Goodbye cast iron skillet slice and hello corn bread cork shape. The duders were still served room temp and still good, no change here.
Holy f’in smokes. If you walk away from this post learning anything, it should be that having the Chili Cheese Fries topped with an Egg is a must. Once you start eating it you can’t stop. It’s not the fries that make this dish (which somehow stay crispy through all this). The Chili, Cheese and Egg combo is a good one. Muy bueno y muy rico.
Are you one of those people who attends parties and when you see that platter full of pigs in a blanket gets excited? Then maybe you should try this amped-up version with a side of delicious grain mustard.
It seems that when I hit up a Howie Kleinberg establishment I overdo it and this was no exception. Before I get into the burgers I should commend him for not overusing his space and having a nice flow that does not have other people’s tables right on top of yours. I’m not interested in how long it’s been since you last saw Aunt Martha.
So, we started with the “Not So Kosher” Burger: Crisp Kosher Salami as its focal point, with Coleslaw, Swiss Cheese, Deli Mustard, and a 1000 Island Dressing “Schmear.” It was my least favorite of the 3 burgers we had. It had the feeling of being a sandwich with a burger in it than the other way around. If you like Salami this might be your dude though.
Over the last few years, I’ve learned to tolerate pineapple and in some instances love it. This brings us to the Hawaii Five-O: with Crispy Ham, Roasted Pineapple, Pepper Jack Cheese and Kleinberg’s House-Made “Big Kahuna” Sauce. In this particular case, I love the pineapple flavor especially since it didn’t kill the flavor of the meat. And yes, that is the 2nd egg I have for those of you keeping tabs at home.
The third burger was the Luther Burger: Bacon-Cheeseburger served on a Donut “Bun.”. Since I’ve had a Luther Burger before it’s not a new thing for me but for my friend it was. This was hands down the Best Burger of the 3. It was cooked perfectly Medium as I asked and you know what else he did right? He glazed regular burger buns instead of actual donuts so they wouldn’t be too sweet. Good job man.
There are a good other 6 or 7 Burgers left on the menu to try but that’s for next time. When you come by here, don’t forget to try the Chili Cheese Fries topped with an Egg. And if you can’t finish them give me a ring, I’ll be right over. Save me some of your Luther too.
