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.
