Visited for dinner. Ordered at counter, but no indoor seating available. Sat outside, which was ok, but not ideal. Food was excellent, but beware of ordering too many fries. One order is enough for 4. TriTip sandwich is all I hoped it would be - loads of meat. Parking is a chore. Tiny lot, so plan on street parking with... More

We come to Dog House once a week to get together with business associates after a meeting. I'm giving them five stars because they do what they are trying to do very well: be a grab your own food and have a seat kind of sports grill. Their food is tasty and inexpensive and they get it to you quickly.... More

From the moment you arrive, it's a battle. You battle to park. You wait in line you order and then you fight for seating. While you eat, you fight to hear the people you're with because it's so LOUD in there. Definitely not a first date place. Still, you get plenty of tasty food for your money including an obscene...

This place is excellent for those of us who love barbecue. Here is a large serve yourself soft drink menu. The staff is friendly and enthusiastic. Even the prices are friendly. Parking can be a challenge.

My husband and I were looking for a late lunch/early dinner before heading to our hotel to return home. We read some online reviews, as we were not familiar with the Fresno area, and the areas near the airport were reported to be rather sketchy. Dog House Grill received mostly excellent ratings, so we took a chance. We saw that... More

I've had the Steak Salad many times and it is amazing! Lots of cut up pieces of steak along with bacon, blue cheese, onions, and other veggies (the small is really plenty for most people). But, others insist that any of the grilled meat dishes are equally delicious. Whatever you decide, you won't be disappointed!

On this date we did take out. We have found it easier on the ears to bring it home. You can Barely here the person next to you! However they do have the best tri-tip sandwich in the valley, tons of meat, no jip here! And the salads are awesome! So if lots of noise does not bother you, go... More

Took the advice of trip advisor once and and was not steered wrong. Good, fast good. This place was located across from Calif state university @ Fresno so it was crowded with college students.... But also saw businessmen/women and families. Fast service.... Tried the veggie burger.... Was pleasantly surprised. Their BBQ sauce was WOW. Highly recommend!!!!

This was recommended to us by hotel staff when asked for place for lunch. Line was long outside, but moved fast. You order at window, take a number & find a table. Service is fast (like In & Out burger) Full bar, lots of TVS with various sports- Giants game on! and a fun atmosphere. Trip Tip sandwiches were excellent-... More

Dog House Grill is extraordinary. It has an extensive and appeasing menu for all palates. Great prices in general, but also a better value for the amount of food you get and how great it is. Every time we fly someone out here for work, we always stop here to show off. They usually ask to go back at least... More
