    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.

    Def loved the window spot upstairs! Interesting ppl everywhere (not to mention the strip club across the street/down the alley!) GREAT beers. The Mac n cheese and meatloaf are to DIE FOR! will be back

    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.

    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 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

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

    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.

    $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.

    Everyone talks about the burgers but good god try the wings. Best I've had in Philly. (But I guess that is not saying much but still...good shit)
  • James W.
    The burgers are obviously phenomenal. Beyond that, I recommend dialing up some mashed potatoes (ask for the chicken jus to throw on top).

    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

    Great vibe. Perfect surly big heart bartender. Patrons yelling at the flyers game. Sharing great brunch spots. Great spot. My kinda place

    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.

    Food was a bit cold when we received it so that may have affected the taste. The fried pickles were bland not much flavor. The empanadas were awkward, the sauce was not tasty. Shrimp was okay.
