Sandwiches, pizzas and beer - oh my!

Lost Dog is a great place to experience a vast array of beers, sandwiches of ever-changing ingredients, and pizzas. It is very casual and very popular, so be prepared to wait a bit for a table at peak times. Two things you can do to avoid a wait: you can order out for delivery or pickup or you... read more

The food here is very good. Not pretentious but solid ingredients and well prepared. I support this restaurant because of the fantastic work they do in realm of animal rescue but I have never had a bad meal.

An acquaintance recommended we place an online lunch order for our large group. The process was simple and efficient. Once you check out, the website estimates the arrival time. In our case, the arrival time easily beat the time they thought the order would be delivered. Using Grub Hub, you can order as a "Group" and include the person's name,... More

Family friendly restaurant. Ample parking in back of Westover strip mall. Nice menu of specialty pizzas and sandwiches. We've been going for years. A treat for the family after school or after church. Wait staff is always friendly and effecient. Love the "funky" art, and who doesn't love helping animals!

It's hard to imagine any restaurant serving such bland and flavorless food. The guacamole was just mashed avocado, lacking any traditional spices. Our entrees of fettuccini neptune with shrimp, scallops and crab meat were completely without flavor. The sauce seemed to consist only of milk and a little heated butter poured over the pasta. Nothing else in the way of... More

Lost Dog Cafe is a combo of a pizzaria and a beer store/bar. They have an excellent beer selection that you can taste and buy to take home. There is a very large selection of pizzas from the normal to taco-pizza if you're in for something new. They also have some related dishes and subs on the menu, but we... More

Looking for some dinner in Arlington, we happened on the Lost Dog Cafe when looking for restaurants in the area. The cafe is located in a small strip mall but there was alot of parking on the street out front. We LOVED the theme - everything dog-related - but the place seemed like a nice spot for the locals too.... More

We live close by and have really stopped going here very often. While we love the food (although not healthful), it is a bit pricey for what you get. The atmosphere is nice, and the service typically good, but $7.95 for a slice of pie for dessert, (that I know from the supplier costs about $24 for 16 slices) is... More

The menu at Lost Dog is many pages long. If you can't find something you like here, you're not trying. We went for sandwiches, but I know that the pizzas are well respected as well. I had the El Paso Pup, which was sliced chicken breast, BBQ sauce, bacon, Munster cheese, avocado, and jalapeño. It was tasty. The fries and... More

Really good food (had to take some home to have the next day) friendly prompt staff comfortable atmosphere and the money goes to local Dog related humane organizations to help local canines who have been abandoned or dropped. A few doors down is a partner restuarant that helps cats. And no I'm not making that up.
