One of the Top 5 Tavern Style Burgers in Mpls/St Paul Magazine.
Tavern Style burgers - Tavern-style burgers weigh in at a third- to a half-pound, incorporate a generous fat-to-lean ratio (“greasy” seems harsh), and taste best when cooked on a seasoned flat-top griddle. These need to hit certain criteria of quality but don’t benefit from flights of fancy or too much locavore earnestness... Our five favorites:
5. The Bulldog Lowertown
...half-pounders here, served on our favorite bun (potato flour) in town... beefy, nicely seasoned, and delectably charry... We love the Dog’s thin fries and killer cheese curds as well. And they offer a beer or 90.

The third and latest in the popular Bulldog chain, following south and northeast Minneapolis locations, this 'Dog is the nicest yet, with big, roomy booths, a large center bar, and views of lovely Mears Park across the street.

New nightspots pouring specialty drinks to tap emerging niche markets
..Matt Lokowich's decision to specialize in custom beers has been such a hit that next week he's opening a third branch of his Bulldog bar and restaurant in St. Paul's Lowertown with more than 100 kinds of suds.
When he opened his first restaurant in Uptown 5 1/2 years ago, Lokowich knew he wanted to stand out from the everyday beer and burger joint. So he brought in Belgian, German and English craft beers that are made in small batches.
"There are a lot of unique beers we carry that most people wouldn't be able to get their hands on," said Lokowich. "I think the beer lovers have always been around but they end up going to bars and having the same things over and over."
