I had read the reviews and everyone raved...me personally, the food was ok...however you got a lot of it with a great price. I had the pork sandwich, would never put it on a garlic buttered bun...but throw some hot sauce and the pork was good. One has to realize, it is a college town...so it is all about quantity... More

If you come here expect fast service (order at counter) and a loud American bar full of local college students. The Tri-Tip sandwich is very good - ask for extra sauce. I really like that they have large salads too. There are about 10 TVs all tuned to sport.

From hot dogs to salads, you're sure to find a menu item that will please your tummy! My favorite is the tri tip Cobb salad, it never ends. Stop in before a concert at Savemart or chill and watch a game while drinking some brews with your friends. Kid and family friendly also. The food never disappoints. Parking is an... More

First you need to know that it is VERY close to a college campus. Secondly, you need to know that their parking lot will not handle 5% (may not be exact) of the people that will be in the restaurant.....find parking elsewhere and walk. You will have 2 options....order at the counter, find a table and pick up your food... More

All of their food is awesome, but my graves are the Tri Tip Salad and the Tri Tip Taco! If you can eat more than one of ANY of their items, you're a better - or bigger - person than me!

My family loves this place. Great food. My husband gets the tri tip sandwich, I get the chicken sandwich and the kids get burgers. Fries are great but a tad to salty. Busy place good luck finding a seat. Be patient it's worth it.

Revisited the Dog House Grill. The parking is absolutely terrible. Most times it is necessary to park a block or two away. It is not in the best area of Fresno and somewhat scary. Everytime we've been there there is usually a line waiting out the door. A nice selection of items to choose from and the staff is very... More

Dog House Grill is a good place to eat. We went as a couple but it would be fine for families as well. It's kind of like an old fashioned walk-up hamburger stand, but it's indoors. You order as you come in the door. No one seats you or comes around to take your order. There are not a whole... More

Located near a college campus, this place is very popular. Relatively young crowd. You get in line, place your order, and pick it up when they call your number. Food comes up pretty quickly. My wife had the veggie sandwich and I had the chicken soft taco and a side of beans, all excellent! Prices were VERY low. Loud but... More
