I am not a BBQ fan but I went on a date here and loved the food! I definitely recommend this place and I loved the outdoor seating. They had a cat outside who comes up to people to be petted. It was so much fun and relaxing. It also looks like they have music on some nights. I went... More

This is a friendly, fun place to have a good, hearty sandwich. Though a bit on the spendy side, the food does not disappoint, and the venue has a comfortable vibe. I always try to have a different sandwich or salad on each visit, but I've fallen for their "What The Fig" sandwich on more than one occasion. This is... More

Had lunch at Yellow Dog today - tried the Holy Crap! Yummy. Smoked turkey, goat cheese, onions basil mayo on wonderful grain bread. Can't wait to go again and try something new. If you like BBQ, they have great BBQ

My fourth visit and wife's first. Always a line and gotta keep your eyes open for a table but well worth it. Pulled pork sandwich once again and I swear ear time it's better than before. Side of potato salad. A hippy, chic place and worth a visit if your in the area. You will leave happy and satisfied.

Wonderful place! Food was fantastic! A little confusing at first but once we were directed to order at counter , all was good. The VW bus was an added treat.
