Maybe I just don't like hamburgers - Bulldog NE [MSP]

Well I have been on a mini-quest for good hamburgers lately. With all the hype surrounding the new places in and around the MPS area, I have been craving a good burger. My Smash Burger experience was just awful, and I have lost all respect for City Pages after they rated Smash #1. I live close to Bulldog NE and decided that I would try that out. The actual dining area left much to be desired, especially the evening I chose. The gale force winds that were whipping through the bar carried a ton of dandelion cotton crap that I had to avoid eating as it landed on my food. The smell of cigarette smoke coming in from the patios also infused my every-other bite. I ordered the Junk Burger and it was ok. I didn't jump and scream about its tastiness, and I didn't spit it out. It was "decent." The fries were the star of the plate, they were awesome! My wife ordered the Caesar salad and I tasted that after she stated it had no flavor at all. She was right; the overwhelming flavor was . . . lettuce. It was a plate full of oily lettuce. Did I mention we started with hot pretzels with the horseradish mustard? I think they nuked a couple of super pretzels, they were very un-inspired. In conclusion, I might go back to try some of their other food, and definitely for the fries. I just haven't had that knock out burger yet. I will keep trying.
