Tasty, tasty, tasty!

The food at the Dog House Grill is wonderful. I don't usually order Mexican food unless I'm at a Mexican restaurant, but the chicken taco is amazing! First of all, it's huge. But it's also very yummy. We ordered a basket of fries for the family to share and there were more than enough for the... read more

On a trip to Fresno, we stopped here for lunch. The line was out the door which seemed like a good sign. We were expecting a sit-down place, but you order yourself from a board a few feet from the door (hence the line out the door). Ribs were ok - not great. Beans were tasty. Overall, just ok and...

we went here because we were recommended by some friends that said food it's the best. We got there and there was no parking, but then we said we said maybe it's because it's so delicious that's why they are packed. After we order and got our food it was not worth all the wait. The sandwiches are only good... More

It was my first visit to this restaurant and was surprised to see that it was full and no place to sit initially. Equally surprised when the veggie burger I had ordered was made with fresh ingredients and it was very tasty. I was not expecting that at all. Will certainly plan to visit again.

I had order of ribs and found this to be extremely delicious, Though I travel these had to be the best ribs so far, They make there own B.B.Q. sauce, and it was absoulutly great, the right amount of sweet and flavor to enchance the experience.A slab is big enough for 2 people but if you must take half and...

Bulldog Grill never fails in having the BEST TRI TIP Sandwiches ever! You are lucky if you get to here! Local brews on tap with sports bar atmosphere.

Based on the reviews, I expected more. The food was good, but not great. Maybe because I am from Texas the barbeque didn't meet my expectations. I had the tri-tip sandwich, fries, and we had onion rings. My dining partner had pork ribs with side of beans. I tried the ribs, they were okay, needed more rub. She was not... More

I ordered them. Thought I paid for them as I got the chicken meal that included a small salad. But when I went to the counter to collect our four orders they were not there. I explained but no use. So did my business partner. In looking at the bill it appeared I was not charged for the side. It... More

This is must go to place in Fresno. Best BBQ food and the fries are heaven! Don't be shocked by the line as there is always a line for the food. Which means you're at the right spot.

Was in town for business and stopped here for the tri tip sandwich on my way to the airport. As many have noted, parking is a challenge. I was there at 1:30PM on a weekday and had to park about 2 blocks away - not a big deal, just drive down Chestnut and you will find street parking, BUT make... More
