  • *****

    The food is great

  • *****

    They have the best ice cream around they have flavor swirls that you can’t find anywhere else. It’s very fair priced. A locally owned business and has been for years the owner does good to give high school students their first jobs and teach them work ethics. Love this place!!!!

  • *****

    We stopped on our way home on vacation. We had the catfish and chocolate pie!! Both were delicious!! Sounds like we should try the strawberry shortcakes next time. It was the best meal we had on our vacation. We will return!!!

  • *****

    Good all American drive thru diner, but it's one of a kind, too. Type of place you envision working at when your in high school or college. Of course, their strawberry shortcake is the bomb! The menu is large and diverse and they have about anything for anyone. Its family friendly, right off the highway, and definately worth a few extra miles to avoid McDonald's and the like.

    Stopped by on a Sunday afternoon traveling home on vacation. We had the catfish & strawberry shortcakes!!! One of the best meals on our vacation!!! The service was awesome & quickness of getting the food was superb. I raved all the way to Little Rock about the shortcake...best I’ve ever eaten. Will tell everyone & definitely stop by when in the area again!!! Thanks so much Bull dog!!!????

    Worth the trip just for the Strawberry Shortcake. They also have great burgers, chilli dogs & catfish. They are always packed at lunch so you know the food is great. But that strawberry shortcake is a little slice of heaven. I'm telling you go for the Strawberry Shortcake. You will not regret it.

  • *****

    The go-to place for strawberry shortcake during the summer. Good food and traditional drive in setting. Worth the drive from Little Rock.

  • *****

    We stopped on Friday on our way to Little Red River. Food was yummy, strawberry shortcake was to die for!

  • *****

    Great food and a wide variety. The deserts are great and the peach or strawberry cobblers are on point. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The place is also very clean and right off the road. The service is quick and food good for the price.

  • *****

    The food is always delicious, but the cashier just looked miserable and wasn't overly friendly. I know everyone has bad days and am hoping that this was the case and she's back to smiling soon.

  • *****

    Good BBQ. Only place I know to get a peach shortcake. Great all around restaurant.

  • *****

    I Love Their Food, And Friendly Service. But, they have outgrown their small building.

  • *****

    My husband and I stopped in Sunday and split a fish plate and then split a half and half deluxe shortcake (strawberries and peaches!) and it was awesome! They were slammed, but the workers were nice and efficient. We stop almost every time we drive through Bald Knob.

  • *****

    Everything they have is delicious. I eat there all the time.

  • *****

    Always stop by the Bulldog if I'm in BN. Love their shrimp baskets. Reasonably priced food. One of a kind strawberry cheesecakes!!!!

  • *****

    We were on a road trip from Wisconsin headed to Dallas. We stopped at the Bulldog cause it appeared to be the only decent restaurant for miles and miles. We were pleasantly surprised. Food was great,fast, and friendly. And the strawberry shortcake really is amazing.

  • *****

    Traveling through and saw lots of cars at lunchtime. Always a good sign. Had the BBQ plate with beans and slaw and it was excellent. The Texas toast was the best. My husband had the BBQ chicken plate and said it was good. We topped it off with their strawberry shortcake. Yum!! Good service too.

  • *****

    Food is expected of a fast food restaurant. Service is friendly and fast. Desserts are better than the dinner options. Stop here after dinner for their awesome strawberry shortcake, or brownie bites sundae!!

  • *****

    One of the best 10 burgers in the State. And with the reasonable prices, great hometown attitude and great service, its a must stop.

  • *****

    Great food!

  • *****

    We were just passing through some friends told us we had to try your strawberry shortcake... it was amazing and the service was great !!!

  • *****

    Great local restaurant, serving good food and sweet treats fast. This has been a favorite family stop for many decades. We can't pass through the area without stopping regardless of the time of day. The milkshakes (they have a bunch of flavors) are our staple menu item!!

  • *****

    Food was good but nothing extra, a little pricy. Prompt service but not worth going out of your way for.

  • *****

    Everytime we travel in this area of Arkansas we stop at the Bulldog. Never ordered anything we didn't enjoy. The ice cream is great also.

  • *****

    Very good food and service.

  • *****

    Had a bbq pork sandwich with coleslaw on it, and I loved it! Had strawberry shortcake for dessert, which was good and an interesting twist on the classic. This place seems to be very popular with locals, so it was pretty crowded.

  • *****

    Best burger I have eaten around here. And the milkshakes are awesome too!!!!

  • *****

    Decent bbq sandwich and small onion rings.
    Only paid 7$! Great price. Will eat there again when passing thru.

  • *****

    Good good. Clean place. In and out quick

  • *****

    Local institution. Good burgers. Better strawberry shortcake.

  • *****

    Fast food style surprised us. Menu board behind cashiers. Taco salad was okay. BBQ pork meal was very good. Graduation weekend so very busy but line moved fast. Strawberry shortcake was superb and most people that walked by were partaking of the ice cream in one form or another. Seating is hard chairs or plastic booths but it is what it is. Restroom were marginal, but like I said, busy time.

  • *****

    Love their food! We always stop her and eat after going to the wildlife management and taking pictures!

  • *****

    Me and my wife went here for the first time ever last week. Lets just stay the food is amazing and the staff is friendly can’t wait to come back ?

  • *****

    Very friendly staff. Food was fast and very good. Dining area is always clean and the food is always hot. World class Five star burgers!! Chicken was fantastic as well. Prices are reasonable service is always fast. Great in and out place. We always stop in for lunch during duck season. This place seems like a local famous place. Restrooms are always clean
    Great parking for trailers too. Very convenient location.

  • *****

    Big delicious salad with warm grilled chicken and a bargain pork bbq plate to boot. The lot was packed with cars but the service was quick and friendly. Nice clean bathrooms too.

  • *****

    Great food, reasonable prices! First time to eat there tonight and I will be back for strawberry shortcake!

  • *****

    I love that place. I've been going to the Bulldog for almost 50 years.

  • *****

    They have great malts, that is the reason I stop there. The food is pretty standard old fashion style burger joint. Not amazing, but good food.

  • *****

    Would have rated it a 5 star but every time my husband and I go in or go through the drive through the girls are never friendly. Went through about 5 mins ago and we came to the window, the girl opened it and stared at my husband and he said I need to place a Togo order and she stood there still not saying a word and so he said ok I need and proceeded to order and she told him the total and that was the whole interaction. Please teach your girl to atleast talk to the customer. Very rude in my opinion. Only complaint though. Love the fries!

  • *****

    Great food & service! Burgers are just like home made. The Cyclones are Amazing!! We always stop here on our way to Little Rock!

  • *****

    They have great malts, that is the reason I stop their. The food is pretty standard old fashion style burger joint. Not amazing, but good food.

  • *****

    We plan our trip around stopping at The Bulldog Restaurant any time we are going through Bald Knob! We all have our favorites. Wife gets the BLT, I get either a double cheeseburger or BBQ ( and sometimes both!). Bulldog never disappoints! Headed there right now!

  • *****

    Had the Enchilada Plate, it was very good, crispy salad and fluffy rice. Lemon Ice-Box Pie, Fresh Homemade Whipped Cream. Nice clean facilities, warm and cozy lil place to get a quick bite to eat.

  • *****

    The Bulldog is the Magnum Opus of Arkansas. It is easily the finest dining experience I have ever had the privilege of experiencing in my lifetime and you can bet your bottom dollar that I will be returning to partake once more in the glory that is this 8th Wonder of the World. As soon as you walk in the door, your olfactory senses are overwhelmed with the true scents and aromas of Arkansas. Ordering your food, may your delicacy, is as simple as walking up and telling them what you want and then waiting for it. The atmosphere of this national treasure is consumed by local individuals so friendly and welcoming, you would think that you've lived in Bald Knob your whole life. I would say, without hesitation, not to experience the majesty that is The Bulldog, is to limit your life experiences to those of mediocrity.

  • *****

    Really great burgers and such. The beef stew is not so great. Watery and no flavor. But the white beans and cornbread is great. Usually a bit of a wait, since they stay busy.

  • *****

    This was my 1st time coming to Bulldog. I will say I'm definitely going to return. The food is hot when served and one of the best burgers I've had. And the staff was absolutely great with my service dog. They welcomed him with no issues and did all they could to help. They even gave bowl for water for him. Will recommend Bulldog to anyone!!!

  • *****

    Down home, old time DAIRY BAR! Great food and great service (with a smile). We ran across this place by accident, and glad we did.

  • *****

    Pies are awesome! All food is very good. Great little place

  • *****

    Great food, clean, quick service and well priced ... Yummm

  • *****

    Great footlong chili dog and the best chocolate and coconut pies!

  • *****

    We love this restaurant. I live in Searcy but me n my grandbabies drive to eat at the Bulldog. Great food and a family atmosphere.

  • *****

    Had the burger and fries which were good. But the ice cream was my favorite!

  • *****

    I love it on everything!!we eat one a week! Happy ?

  • *****

    You just gotta stop .... At the Bull Dog .. For great food and great service.

  • *****

    Love this place!! Not only do they have great food but it has great service. I'm a picky fish eater so I am always hesitant to order it. I've always been pleased with the fish at this restaurant. If you are tired of "fast food" I'd definitely give this place a try. It's just like home cooked meals with the convenience of fast service!

  • *****

    Great little hole in the wall place in a tiny little town in Arkansas. They are known for their strawberry shortcake and while it's tasty, it's not my favorite thing on the menu.
    Upon entering the restaurant you go straight to the counter to order. The line was really long however, it moved very quickly. It was a little too fast paced for me, I didn't feel as though I had time to ask questions and felt like I was being rushed by the cashier. I understand she was trying to move through the line hurriedly but I do feel as though if a patron has a question, it should be answered in a courteous manner.
    I ordered the BBQ chicken plate and my hubs ordered the burger and fries. The rest of our group got burgers and BBQ sandwiches. The price is incredibly reasonable and our food was brought to our table not too long after we had been seated.
    Each of us enjoyed our meals however the BBQ pork sandwich was incredibly messy and more slaw than meat. The fries and onion rings were delicious! I kept seeing the chicken strips and while I didn't get to taste them, they looked great! The Texas toast that came with my meal was probably the best I've had. There was so much butter and the bread melted in your mouth.
    For dessert we got the famous strawberry shortcake and a brownie sundae. Both were pretty good but nothing outstanding. I would personally like to eat the 'real' food over the dessert and that's not normal for me. They also serve ice cream, milk shakes, and various homemade pies.
    It's a great little place to stop if you're anywhere in the area.

  • *****

    Varity on their menu. Burgers are great. Love the fries. Homemade pies by the slice. Ice cream and shakes. Named after the local high school's mascot.

  • *****

    Passing through and stopped. It was very good. Service was quick and business was very clean.

  • *****

    Awesome once again! Today was chicken and dumplings and talk about mouth-watering, great tasting! Great customer service! Affordable Pricing makes this a great choice!

  • *****

    I have eaten here several times over the years and it is always a great place to stop in or get food on the go while you were on a trip. They have great specials such as today there is homemade beef stew and warm apple pecan cake or you can get a standard such as a barbecue sandwich or a hamburger. They also have great desserts such as strawberry shortcake, if it is in season,or I always get a butter scotch shake.

  • *****

    Good food for a local spot. Like thier bbq plates n burgers. Their strawberry shortcake is to die for!!!! Plus they have the best fries in town! Yes im a chubby kid who loves fried food!

  • *****

    Good BBQ sandwich, fries, onion rings, and we loved the strawberry shortcake. Fries were nice and hot, softer in the middle and crispy on the outside. Quite yummy. Onion rings were also hot, and were juicy in the center and crispy on the outside.
    We were there at 5:00 pm on a Friday and it was hopping with customers, mostly locals it seemed. Friendly, family atmosphere, kind of furnished like a Diary Queen with food orders taken at the counter. Good was delivered to the table. A real local favorite!

  • *****

    yum Good food!

  • *****

    Good Food...
    They have the best strawberry short cake around, when is season. Their food is really good and cook to order. Fresh and Hot! They have some really good desserts too!!

  • *****

    yum
    Good food!

  • *****

    Great place for a burger or sub on your way from Memphis to Heber Springs and Greers Ferry Lake. They make many different kinds of milk shakes, too.

  • *****

    Clean. Good food. Inexpensive. Catfish on Sunday is great. Daily lunch specials. Order at counter, food delivered to table. In season, specialty is strawberry shortcake.

  • *****

    Great food (get the pulled pork plate) and get the Strawberry Shortcake. You will not be disappointed.

  • *****

    What a great find! This place was a recommendation and am I glad I listened. It's right off the highway. It's sort of like a Dairy Queen but better. You walk ins and order at the counter, they give you a number and a waitress brings you food to your table. I had a 1/2 pound burger which is a double. It came exactly the way I asked for and was very good. I also had a bowl of their chili. The chili was VERY meaty, o beans and rather mild. No danger of heartburn, no beans either. I thought it was pretty good but could have used a little more kick in my opinion. I also had fries, onion rings and tator tots. The fries were especially good as they had a light batter coating. My companion had the BBQ chicken sandwich and fries. The chicken was chopped. It looked pretty good although she said it could have used more sauce. Companion ordered a dipped cone and she seemed to think it was very good. If I find myself in Bald Knob, I'm going back. The place was spotless. They also had an extensive dessert menu. You'll like it!

  • *****

    Ice cream, short cakes, daily specials and malts/shakes are awesome.

  • *****

    Best banana shake in the world! A
    I always get these when I drive to Heber Springs! Can't wait to go back and get another one!

  • *****

    A great slice of Americana - this reminds me of a mid 50's era diner - the food is burgers, fries, and a delicious milkshake that is so good the New Madrid fault starts shaking when you indulge in this perfectly created milkshake.

    My favorite is the pizza burger... I've been going to this place forever and highly recommend it for all Memphians on their way to Heber Springs

  • *****

    I love this place. I had the BBQ chicken with onion rings. They were both delicious and some of the best I have ever had. I will be back...and often!

  • *****

    Great food! The chicken fingers, BBQ pork, hamburgers, and French fries are great. I get their BBQ sauce and use it for everything. Probably my favorite BBQ sauce I've ever had. My wife loves the strawberry shortcake and their milkshakes are awesome. Definitely recommend trying this place if you are in the area.

  • *****

    Fried catfish plate with strawberry shortcake for desert.... Nough said!! Only wish I lived closer!

  • *****

    I have had their cheeseburgers, pulled pork and chicken and dumplings. It was all amazing. Just really good food, with a very friendly wait staff

  • *****

    This is such a good find! It's a little diner with affordable food that tastes great! It's got famous strawberry shortcake too ;)
