According to most restaurant critics, the perfect barbecue is served on a plate, which rests on a table with legs. Try some barbecue the way it was meant to be served with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of barbecue and drinks at Bulldog Barbecue in North Miami. This Groupon is not valid with other offers or for specials.
Spiced up by the saucy skills of chef Howie “Bulldog” Kleinberg, who was on Top Chef Miami, Bulldog Barbecue's menu features no-frills, North Carolina–style barbecue. Hearty options—such as the popular beef brisket ($18), shrimp and grits ($18), and baby back ribs ($15–$23), all of which come with Carolina slaw, cornbread, and your choice of side—satisfy stomachs with unmatched sass. Non-carnivores can focus on the selection of fresh salads or a smoked portobello burger with caramelized onions and balsamic mayo ($9). Unlike most restaurants 500 miles beneath the earth's surface, Bulldog Barbecue provides drink items, allowing guests to fight off dehydration with made-to-order lemonade ($2); a root-beer float ($4); or a choice of red wines, white wines, or bubblies.
Belly up to a table lined with butcher paper and outfitted with a wall-mounted paper-towel dispenser for an order of smokehouse wings ($10), which features the niblets that helped Bulldog Barbecue come away with the Best Chicken Wings title from Miami New Times. Or hug the stainless-steel bar where customers flock to throw back ice-cream sodas ($4).
Bulldog Barbecue won Best Barbecue from NBC 6's Golden Local poll, Best Chicken Wings in 2010 from the Miami New Times.

Yelpers give Bulldog a 3.5-star average and more than 100 Urbanspooners give it a 70% recommendation rate:
- [The wings are] deep-rubbed with Bulldog's secret house spice mix, slowly smoked for an hour and 15 minutes until fully cooked, cooled, deep-fried, and bathed in a luxuriously piquant beurre blanc sauce. – Miami New Times
- …this hot spot sets out to prove that bikinis and barbecue are not mutually exclusive. – Andrew Knowlton, Bon Appétit
- This is a lively place with chef watching the kitchen and food comes out hot and tasty. – phyllisc8284, Zagat member
