    The burger is a riff on the Juicy Lucy-style cheeseburger; that is, the cheese (Roquefort) is inside the patty. It's so good that Philadelphia restaurant critic Craig LaBan wrote a song about it.

    Cheesesteak empanadas are great! Good selection of beer. Good bartenders but can be a bit of a wait especially during HH. Will have to come back to try more of the menu.

    Great menu and reasonably priced - had a hard time deciding what to order. Went with the drunken hummus to start and it was delicious! And the burgers have blue cheese in them - yum! Chill atmosphere

    Don't miss the burger with cheese melted inside, and simple but superb grilled cheese. Both come with sweet potato fries. Solid beer list too - has something to offer for everyone.

    The smoking ban has cleared the smog from one of the city's most intriguing gastro-pubs, where a mixed crowd of bike messengers and barristers swig cans of PBR and indulge in comfort cuisine. Read more

    The meatloaf entree is better than a meatloaf entree should be. It's one of my favorite meals. Enjoy it with one of their many local drafts. They also have one of the best burgers around.

    The Good Dog is one of the best places to call home for drinking and eating. Get the cheesesteak empanadas and the Good Dog Burger is one of the city's best. Sweet potato fries rule, too. Read more

    It’s mostly a hipster gathering place these days, but the beers are still great, the menu is killer, and if you time it just right, you can have the entire third floor to yourself.

    Must visit. Pictures of dogs on walls. Plus: I'm from Montana, I know beef. Might not be the best beef but the Good Dog burger is one of the best I've ever had. Skip Tria Skip rouge. Go here Have fun

    Hands down on of my favorite bars in Philly. Solid tap list - they always seem to have Lagunitas on tap! Great bartenders. Great food. Can't ask for much more!

    The Good Dog Burger, stuffed with Roquefort Cheese, is easily in the top five burgers I've had in my life.

    $12.50 The Good Dog Burger is a classic. 1/2 of house ground sirloin stuffed with roquefort cheese and topped with caramelized onions served on a toasted brioche bun.

    Love this bar. Great craft selection and surprisingly good menu. Check for daily specials and snag a booth seat upstairs. Private bar on each floor.

    Get a beer on the second floor then head up to the third to hang out, play pool, and gaze at cute pictures of dogs

    This casual neighborhood bar has good vibes and good fries (get a half order-it's a mix of sweet potato and regular)

    Great little spot. Upscale pub grub and great beer! The photos of adorable dogs on the wall are a nice touch.

    Very tasty white chicken chili, big enough for an entree! Solid beer menu too, get one of the more exotic or local ones

    Try to sit near the back of the bar. Anything by the door will give you a fresh dose of second hand smoke from outside. Wuch

    A stop at Good Dog had Guy Fieri praising the truffled cheesesteak empanadas. Yes, you read that right.

    Good beer selection. Laid back atmosphere. I wouldn't order the flatbread pizza again it was small and a little over done. Burgers are the way to go here.

    The duck pot pie is fantastic and the beer was first rate. No wait when we went, around 7pm on a Thursday night.

    The truffled cheese steak empanadas are worth it. Make sure to head upstairs if the downstairs bar is full.

    You can't go wrong with the Good Dog burger. Stuffed with Roquefort cheese, it's a messy delight.

    As more and more craft beer is canned, Good Dog’s Wednesday deal of half off cans, becomes better and better.

    The Good Dog burger is phenomenal and the sweet potato fries make you clear your entire plate. Be prepared for a wait though, no matter what the day or time.

    I used to love this bar and go here all the time, unfortunately the staff has become rude, butting into conversations, and completely unhelpful toward beer selections and I will not be returning.
