Andrew and Esther are inspired to sing and dance after a visit to The Bulldog Northeast.
INT – ANDREW’S HOUSE – EARLY EVENING
ANDREW, portly, curly haired man, sits on the bed flicking through websites on his iPhone looking for dining options.
“Esther. They…have…buffalo wings.”
ESTHER, buffalo sauce addict, pretty much constantly covered in sauce, enters room.
“Who? Who has wings, darling?”
ANDREW (now singing)
“Bulldog! Bulldog Northeast! Bulldog’s got wings!”
ESTHER and ANDREW start tap dancing, waving their arms, and singing, and eventually finding themselves transported to The Bulldog Northeast for wings.

Ok, wing lovers, sorry about that. We just got so caught up in the old-timey musical genre that I couldn’t help myself. That said, both of us were more romantic about The Bulldog Northeast‘s wings than we were about La La Land (I don’t want to get into that here, but seriously.)
Now, as South Minneapolis residents, we’re used to the Uptown Bulldog and – if you’ve winged there you know – their wings are great but they’re not buffalo wings. Dry rub, delicious, but just not buffalo.
CUT TO BULLDOG – NORTHEAST – HOPEFULLY MANY MORE TIMES
This place is bonkers delicious and their wings are no exception. The meat was juicy and fresh, the exteriors were crispy but not dry, and the buffalo flavor was large and in charge without losing the chicken’s natural charm. We were astounded that while there was almost no sauce left on the plate after eating, they were not dry or lacking in spicy buffalo flavor.
A chat with our server told us that Bulldog NE uses Texas Pete’s sauce and butter which, as it turns out, is a great approach. Combine that with bleu cheese that was perfectly tangy and creamy and an all around great experience, and you have some of our favorite wings so far!
|Meat Quality: 9/10|

|Notes: A+ Would Wing Again|
|Notes: These wings were fantastic! Usually I like a lot of sauce on my wings but these were perfect even though they weren’t dripping in Frank’s and butter.|
Price: $11 for 10 wings
