The Dog House is our fav dining out spot in Duncan. You can't go wrong with your menu choice - it's all good. Don't look for fancy but the food is tasty, plentiful, and reasonably priced.

The Dog House has a long reputation of affording good, relatively inexpensive food. You won't find any gourmet cooking here, but for a good breakfast this place is hard to beat in Duncan.

The Dog House is a well known and much loved local institution in Duncan. It's been there in the same location for many many years and the menu probably has many of the same items on it.

This restaurant has been around for a very long time and I can see why it continues to exist. The food is downhome, plentiful, and good. Our waitress was attentive but not intrusive. Great place.

Good quality basic food. Looks just like places I remember in the 70's. Order a coffee and they leave the whole pot on the table. Always seems to have a good crowd. Lots of loyal customers.

Another restaurant with a long history in Duncan. The service is good nd the food is very good. It is one place I like to visit often when I am in the area. Plenty of parking and close to other shops.
