Delicious tri-tip and burgers

If you like casual and very good tri-tip and burgers this is the place for you. Their basket of fries is a great addition for the whole family to share. The only bad thing is that in busy days you have to wait for tables to sit but in the end it's worth the wait!

Our Must-Stop for my man and I anytime we're near Fresno. It's usually packed with but the trip is ALWAYS worth it. Parking stinks for the most part, so be prepared to go around a couple of times or take a walk down the side street. Lots of screens and a well-stocked bar make it a great hang-out for game... More

Not much in the way of "romantic-type" atmosphere, but that is not what they are trying to be. Excellent BBQ and sides, hard to find a table most nights, esp weekends, but worth the wait. My husband is a great BBQ-er and BBQ aficionado, and loves everyone on their menu, esp pulled pork and ribs. Basically self-service though, but still... More

Always good food and you get a lot of it, especially the fries. The bbq sauce is really good and there are no bad choices on the menu. Popular place so it does get busy.

I am not a regular, so maybe I hit peak times when the parking lot is full, a line out the door, difficulty finding a table. If you can muster thru those obstacles the service is wonderful, friendly staff, great barbque.

Fast, friendly service, once you get a table and a parking spot before that! (Front-half has service, back-half is self-serve.) Tri-tip, ribs, and burgers are all great. Seasoned fries are plentiful, yet usually gone before the meal is finished. Servings are generous and the bar makes us a special order Long Island Iced Tea. Can get very busy on game... More

Dog House Grill is a Fresno Favorite for us. Parking is difficult because it is situated right near Fresno State Campus and the Dog House is always busy! They have staff that tries to assist with the parking but the best thing is to be patient or park close by on the street. Dog House is very low key and... More
