One of the best burgers in town

Skip the chains and fast-food joints. This dive has character and atmosphere (and an occasional freight train blaring past). Good greasy burgers, and the chicken salad on a jalapeño bun isn't bad either.

This place is good for unique burgers and good beer. It's a bit pricey for a burger, but worth it. It can get a little loud in the restaurant, especially during football season, but this is a sports bar after all. The wait staff can be good or awful, it just depends on who you get as a waiter/ress.

I love this place. I love their hamburgers. You can choose what type of bun you like and I love the jalapeno buns. They make the hamburger delicious. Great burgers. Great price!

Remember the greasy burgers of your college days. Well they are here. This is a typical college dive, dark, beer bar like atmosphere with a lot going on. The food is pretty good too

Definitely a must try if you like hamburgers - the best around. They have a variety of other foods that are very good, too. Service can be slow, and even more so if they're busy... TVs are mounted in various places showing current/live sporting events. Parking can definitely be an issue; some places in the restaurant are not adequately lit... More

My family and I went to eat here for a late lunch on October 4th before the UTEP game. We were seated about 2:30 P.M. and ordered shortly after being seated. However, it literally took a full hour for our hamburgers and chicken strips to arrive. The burgers are average at best. The bread is good but the meat is... More

Went with friends for our first visit over Peach Festival weekend. Laid back, sports bar atmosphere but seems family friendly, too. High tech jukebox rolled out tunes. Started with fried pickles which were amazing. Convinced to try a peach martini...heavenly! I had the Dylan's Anytime burger which comes with a fried egg and was very pleased. Friends died over their... More

Dawg House is a fun place to hang out and watch a game. The food is a little better than bar fare. I had never had fried pickles before Dawg House. They're good! The waitstaff is always laidback and friendly.
