A word from Bulldog Barbecue
Located on Biscayne Boulevard in North Miami, Bulldog Barbecue is a no frills barbecue joint boasting treats so tasty your glands will salivate, all cooked up by our celebrity chef/owner Howie "Bulldog" Kleinberg. Acquired during his stint on Top Chef Miami where his bold – to put it nicely – attitude earned him the nickname, the Bulldog namesake stuck, and our restaurant concept was born. Our star Bulldog fell hard for barbecue after spending summers in North Carolina as a pup. He now enhances the down-to-earth fare with a few of the hautey tautey cooking techniques and ingredients he picked up cooking alongside some the nation's best chefs. After the Top Chef competition, Howie set his mind to pursue his culinary dream. In February 2009, just under two years later, we opened our doors and have been smokin' ever since.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Bulldog BBQ is a solid option in an otherwise fair-to-poor 'cue scene in southeastern Florida. Good job at working in modern techniques and trends into the fare, which gives it a sense of authenticity, homemade-ness and quality. A little disappointed that we didn't try the pulled pork. Out of 5: Ribs: 4 Chicken: 4.25 Brisket: 3 - no discernible smoke ring; properly cut; lacked flavor and authenticity; looked like it had been smoked, chilled and reheated Lemonade: 5 Mac & Cheese: 4 - good; more cheesiness - portion size with the 3&2 for 2 was tiny. Burnt-end beans: 4 - can't complain... didn't see any burnt ends though. Coleslaw: 3 Cornbread: 4 They need a wider variety of sauces. Especially something hot that isn't Sriracha..."

  • "We love the pulled pork and brisket. Their crispy pigs in a blanket are dairy free and my daughter loves them."

  • "Atmosphere and service was great - however ribs were totally overcooked and were very tough - probaley had been sitting in the bain marie after cooking -sauce that came with the ribs was very good. My father in law thought he was going to lose his false teeth! It is a pity as he is from Germany and specifically picked the Restaurant for the ribs which were anything but falling off the bone. There was a great selection of draft beer and our waitress was smart, switched on and personable. There was also a bus boy from Jamaica who was also very entertaining."

  • "I discovered this resto on open table and it's definitely worth a try. Everything we ordered was tasty and good (hamburger, brisket, veggie burger etc...). It's a very casual place which is great for kids and large groups. It doesn't have much ambiance but we weren't going for that so it didn't make a difference. Service was good - the waiter went out of his way to make sure everyone was happy. I recommend it and would return!"

  • "After driving 19 hours from NJ , we checked into our hotel , rested a bit then started thinking about dinner. Last time we were in the area we picked up food from bulldog based on the fact it was Top Chef affiliated. Chef Howie didn't disappoint then or now. Loved the creamy Mac and cheese and the pulled pork , both on my sampler platter. BBQ chicken pieces not as large as I expected, but still tasty and moist. S'mores pie for dessert was too sweet for one person in one sitting so I took half home. Looking forward to returning the next time we are in the north Miami area."
