Best tri tip sandwich ever!

The tri tip sandwich is so buttery moist and tender.I always order well done but either way paired with a drink from the full bar or the half french fries / onion rings and the delicious ranch dressing to dip it in this a heaven!

A very fun place to eat! Usually very crowded since it is the "go to" place for Fresno State students. Parking VERY limited. Food is very good. Quite noisy. Lots of tv sets around to watch all kinds of sports. A nice eating area outside where you can watch the tri tip being BBQed.

We met family here. We ordered their trip tip salad and it was excellent. This place has many TV's like a sports bar. you order and then they call you for pick up and you sit down to eat. College students loved it.

Being a long time Fresno resident I know how much the locals love Dog House Grill. There is always a line out the door and parking is scarce! With that being said, I think the BBQ is just average and not entirely worth the wait. The atmosphere however is great and being just across from the Savemart Center is convenient.... More

You haven't had the best tri-tip sandwhich unless you have come here.... come early to ensure you get a parking spot. Or else be prepared for a lengthy walk.

Our favorite restaurant in Fresno. Amazing Tri-Tip sandwiches. Our boys love the hotdogs and thin fries. Quick service. Parking can be a pain sometimes, but the food is worth it!

I was visiting friends in the Fresno area and we decided to try this place as my friends had indicated that there was always a line here. We were not disappointed. We didn't have to wait long as they had just opened on a Sunday about 11am. The service is fantastic, I don't think so many waiters have asked me... More

Would eat here everyday if I could get away with it! Chicken taco is also a good buy, but that sandwich is what keeps everyone coming!
