Buldogi's is, number one, a damn good dog but not just any dog. The menu includes almost ten classic style dogs and a half dozen Koren fusion-style dogs all made with 100% pure premium beef dogs, chef-prepared gourmet toppings and fresh buns.
The dog barking for your dining attention up top is the Banh Mi Dog: pork belly, banh mi slaw, fresh herb, and sriracha mayo. We aren't sure what half those ingredients are but anyone that likes an adventurous wiener with a mouthful of flavor is going to enjoy this or any others on the menu ranging from sweet to spicy. Or, super spicy in the case of the special Dragon Dog.
All gourmet dogs are $4.95-$5.95 and cooked to order. The restaurant's white board lists non-menu items such as the Dragon Dog, fried pickles and similarly fashioned fusion-style burgers. We suggest sticking to dogs over burgers but adding a (huge) side of Euro Special Fries (pork belly bacon, fresh herb, cheddar cheese, garlic mayo and, of course, fries for $4.75). Top those fries with a fried egg for .95 cents -- you drove all that way so why not?
Yelpers have left 4.5 stars and more than 200 pictures so don't just take our word for it. Buldogi's is open Monday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays to 10 p.m., and Sundays noon to 6 p.m. Call 702.570.7560 for more info.
Rather swing by when convenient, would it be crazy to suggest stopping at Red Rock Canyon because you were already in the area for a dog? We'd like to think not. A second Buldogi's is open inside MVP Sports Lounge at 6120 West Tropicana Avenue, or about ten minutes from Mandalay Bay, but our reviews are based on the Summerlin locale.
Update: the MVP Sports location has since closed.
