Our History

From 1974-1994, the original Bulldog was the place to be for Butler students and residents of South Broad Ripple. Whether it was a stop before walking to a game at Hinkle or partying after a week of classes and work, you had to get there early to beat the rush. Thereafter, Moe and Johnny's operated for over 20 years. Now in 2022, The Bulldog is back in it's home and looking to be a part of the neighborhood once again.   

So, come, sit and stay!
