Bagger Dave’s is a relatively new addition to the downtown area, located on Fulton right next to the river. Bagger Dave’s is a unique place with tons of memorabilia on the wall and plenty of things for kids to enjoy. The memorabilia by us was all focused on downtown Grand Rapids and the history of the city. They also make homemade soda which is a fan favorite for people of all ages. One thing that everybody needs to see (especially kids) is the train that goes around the bar area, it will be sure to put a smile on anyone’s face.
Bagger Dave’s is famous for burgers, from turkey burgers to double patty behemoths to whatever burger your imagination can fathom. They really have it all and the reviews from this taste tester are that you will not leave hungry. I tried the “Trainwreck” burger which consisted of a burger patty, cheese, mushrooms, sautéed onions, French fries, a fried egg, and to top it all off a delicious homemade thousand island sauce. The burger was a delicious mess! By the time I finished I was stuffed and I had gone through about ten napkins (should have used a fork!). So if you find yourself downtown and are looking for a fun spot to take the family look no further than Bagger Dave’s!
