Fun old fashioned place centered on high school mascot. Soda fountain stools, booths, tables, and back room with tables. Tasty burgers. Plenty of sides. Brought to the table by effervescent staff. Kids of all ages will enjoy the visit.

This is a great local, casual burger place. Terrific burgers with many different toppings available. They also have a few decent, fresh salads on menu and shakes are good too!

They have a few things I really like there, some of it is just too much though. A pretty expensive place to eat lunch but not too bad if you go once in a while.

50's decor; great food, large portions. Menu on wall, written in chalk as you walk in-cool! Right in downtown Wauconda on Main Steet; great walk after your great meal at Bulldogs!

Bulldogs is a great place to go...great food and friendly environment! The menu continues to grow with awesome burgers and a variety of sandwiches and starters. I HIGHLY recommend Bulldogs! You can even watch TV in the back room.

Cost too much for an average burger taste! Retro look is very fun but seating is tight. Limited parking close by.

Just order the ramen soup. You won't be sorry. Or the fries. Or the Scarlett Johansen burger. Or the fries covered in BBQ and pork.

A fifties style diner, whose name is, after the high school's mascot, has more sandwiches than you can imagine! They all have very whimsical names and I have not had one that I haven't liked to date! There is a line out the door at...More
