I used to like going here-- big selection of sandwiches and awesome beer selection. One week night, I went with a small group and we ordered pizza. After eating, some movement caught my eye--- there was a roach running across the tabletop next to ours. I freaked out, especially when I saw 2 more. The manager came over and we... More

I have been coming here for years, and the place is always great. Good choice of food - from sandwiches to pizza, amazing assortment of beer, and fast service. Plus they do an amazing job supporting a number of animal organizations in the area.

My significant other and I were looking for a quick place to grab a bite to eat and the Lost Dog Cafe was nearby. They had a menu full of pizza and sandwiches, homemade shakes and desserts, and also tons of beer selections. While I normally stick to more traditional pizzas, since things like a taco pizza usually go awry,... More

We stumbled across Lost Dog Cafe returning to East Falls Church metro station at 9:30PM after having missed dinner. The sandwiches were great. The GF pizza was tasty, but edges of crust were burnt (thus 4 instead of 5). Server warned us 2 baskets of fries would be plenty for 3 people; we would have been okay with 2, and... More

The Lost Dog Cafe is a fixture in Westover. Go for the pizza, but also the vast array of tasty sandwiches and pasta. The Bison Burger and Grownup Grilled Cheese are amazing.

Ordered pizza and salad and it was very good. Had it delivered and it was warm and timely. Have ordered from Lost Dog before and enjoyed it then, so we gave it another try and again it was good. Give it a try.

Stopped in for a late dinner while in DC for the weekend. First, I was very impressed with the drink selection. Toms of beers to choose from so I tried something different. Ended up being one of the best beers I've ever had. The food menu was a bit overwhelming, with tons of choices, but dinner was FANTASTIC. My wife... More

My family and I have been coming to this restaurant for 25 years, starting when it was just a take out deli. The food is amazing, the wait staff is attentive and remembers our family's orders from week to week, and the beers are flowing and plentiful. The main draws are sandwiches and pizzas but there's something for everyone --... More
