Eclectic Mouth Party!

Everything about this place is interesting. The atmosphere, the eating areas, both inside and out, the bar, and the furniture.... I mean, who wouldn't want to eat their meal in an old VW Bus? Come with an open mind and order something odd off the menu, I'm telling you, you'll be glad you did... read more

Get something that has the bbq sauce on it...of you like mustard. Without the sauce the food is a little bland. I had the pulled pork tacos which didn't come with sauce but my dad shared his. Hubby had the holy crap sandwich, he liked it but thought it was a little wet. My dad had the ribs and thought... More

If you are in search of a casual lunch place, this is it but plan on being patient, as it can be very crowded. The sandwich I had was delicious and the setting fun.

In all our visits, we have never been disappointed. Since our last trip, they have expanded their outside dining area. It can get crowded around lunch time, but that's because it's so popular. Their pulled pork sandwich is piled high with meat! It's a funky little place and fun to visit. Yes, you have to stand in line to order,... More

This restaurant is so good! Lots of options to choose from. Great service and people! Plus, you can bring your dog with you. Doesn't get any better than that!

I would not recommend at all. Wraps and sandwiches sell for gourmet prices. Nothing wrong with the food we ate but the prices are high for a sandwich with chips. The seating is cramped and the furniture is very dated. The decor includes crayon drawings on the walls and tables. My money could have been better spent.

Very eclectic. Walk around a cute interior then grab a menu to order at the counter. We took our out back to sit at the mismatch tables and chairs. Has an almost hippy vibe. The food was decent, not the best bbq I've ever had but far from the worst. I suggest the nachos but add the beer cheese for... More

My closest high-school friend (class of 1960!), our spouses, and I met at Yellow Dog Eats for lunch today. They traveled over 3 hours, from Bonita Springs, and we traveled for 2, from St. Augustine, to meet there. Of course, our reunion was the best part, but the place and the food surely did not disappoint. We're both from Texas... More
