Sit Ubu, Sit. Good Dog.

Get your drinks downstairs, but then head upstairs for the pool table and arcade games! A bunch of friends and I went into this place for stop #2 of our pub crawl, and it was a gem.

Being a big fan of Diners Drive Ins we visited in order to try the french fries, empanadas and burgers Guy talked about. We ordered all three along with a duck pot pie and were really disappointed. The meat on the burger was good but the soggy bun, the limp condiments, the mushy cool fries and the miniscule hard as... More

Good dog is one of my favorite Center City spots for great food and friendly service. They also have a solid beer menu! Favorite fare includes the cheesesteak empanadas(out of this world) and the duck pot pie! The empanadas( with truffled cheese-ahhhhh) are my go-to appetizer every time I visit! They are flat-out awesome! The duck pot pie is delightfully... More

My daughter and I enjoyed dinner of tacos and mussels. The mussels were succulent and accompanied by toasted bread to help enjoy the sauce. My daughter's tacos were soft tacos deliciously prepared. Service was good. We were seated on the second floor and at our request the table by the window. I hope to return to Good Dog.

Dp yourself a favor, keep your money and save yourself a lot of aggravation. Terrible flavorless overpriced burger. THAT coupled with the nasty attitude of our server, made this a terrible experience. My first and last time going any place featured on diner drive and dives on the food network. Matter of fact it was so bad I am not... More

Having see this place featured on DDD, I had to give it a try. There are several different and unique items on the menu, As usual in a situation like this, I ordered too much. I tried the cheesesteak empanadas as well as the lamb meatballs sandwich. I was only able to eat about half of each and took the... More

The food was great. We had a short wait but the food was worth it. I would recommend going there. We had the empanada cheesteak truffles, the bread pudding, hush puppies and the mac and cheese. All were very good. I didn't even feel full after eating all that food.

Stayed at the Hilton DoubleTree this weekend and my friend found this place near the hotel. It was on Diners/Drive-Ins/Dives. From the outside it looked like it could be the "dog house" for us choosing it, but it was absolutely gold. Our waitress let us know what they tried on the Triple D episode...you have to have the Truffled Cheesesteak... More

Ate here with the Hubs on a Saturday afternoon for lunch. Has a decent beer menu - I have the Brooklyn summer ale. The food menu is bar food, but with a twist. I have a meatball sandwich, but it was made with lamb. Hubs had a steak sandwich, but is was a Korean style spice. Nice crowd of people... More

After leaving the Bellevue, for an after midnight bite at Dandelion Pub, I learnred the kitchen closed. Tria, and The Bards were kindly suggested. Unfortunately, the kitchen had closed. I thought, go home and make a tuna melt, but it would be some time for a train and a stop to pick up my car. Then I remembered the delicious... More
