3 words.....Tri-tip sandwich!!!! Yummo! Sometimes the line and parking can be a bit of hassle, but don't let that stop you from eating some delicious, extremely well priced food. Their fries are fantastic as well, you have to try the fries!!!! Enjoy!

Always a bit loud and crowded, but worth it. The food is good, there is a lot of it and the prices are reasonable. Tri tip and pulled pork sandwiches are excellent. Not a place to go if you are looking for a little quiet out-of-the-way place. It is more of a road house/sports bar..

I make no secrets to the fact that I like The Dog House Grill in Fresno. Yes, it is across the street from Fresno State. That doesn't matter. The food, BBQ with some other bits thrown in is very good and doesn't set you back an arm and a leg. It is very affordable with two people being able to... More

Best trip tip sandwiches ever !!! Your teeth sink all the way through! Not chewy are hard. Fresh soft buns and BBQ sauce is great. Ask for an extra sauce on the side to dip it in! You will be in heaven!! :)

My basketball team plays here every year, and this year we were told about Dog House. Best food we've had in Fresno. I don't know how it's ranked #5 when it's clearly #1. This isn't just the best bbq in Fresno, it might be the best in California. Well...there's a place in LA that's pretty damn good too. I made... More

Best food for the money in town. Steak Cobb salad, fries, and a cold beer. They have a great happy hour for drinks, and the workers are always there to top them off.

I have been to the Doghouse MANY times! EXCELLENT! Good food(Tri Tip sandwich, of course), good drinks and good sports. My daughters are from the Bay Area and come to visit me occasionally with the intent of getting a Tri Tip sandwich.(The real reason for the visit.) The Doghouse is the only place I will have a Tri Tip sandwich.... More

If you need to join a crowd to see sports, this is the place. No white table clothes here! Big, loud and real fun food. Walking distance to Fresno State college campus so its going to be a younger crowd. All the BIG screens had sports going on. I would imagine on game day at the Fresno campus the seating... More

They charge $8.50 for a tri-tip sandwich - meat, bun, sauce. It has, pretty much on average, no MORE than a scant 8 ounces of meat. Do the math ... that parlays into $17 per pound for tri tip that they are charging -  per sandwich. Insane - UNLESS you are an investor!!! ABSURD!!! The meat is bone dry and... More

Great food- tri tip, pulled pork, etc. Very popular restaurant, always busy. Sign as you enter says "We guarantee your food, not a place to sit" Only once I had a problem before a game. A lot of people had the same idea as me. Definately a fun place
