The family and I were in the Orlando area for vacation. After the plane landed our first stop was here. The food and atmosphere are both excellent.

Great eats, drinks, and ambiance. A real local treat with amazing sandwiches and salads. Yellow Dog Eats makes their own barbecue sauce. Delicious! I always bring out of towners here for the local eatery feel.

I agree with the above comments. They do make most everything they serve so I am sure that if you are catering they will insure that your order is as specified regarding allergens. The owners take pride in the food they... More
