I had visited the restaurant more frequently prior to giving up all grains, however on a recent visit with friends I discovered they will make ANY sandwich on the menu as a salad! I heard the angels sing and started with the buffalo soldier. Wow. What a flavor explosion. This weekend I'm going back to get the Johnny Rocket as... More

We have been here before and we still love it! It's so kitschy and fun. We ordered the mozzarella and tomatoes, shrimp bang bang, chicken curry salad and a twisted tuna sandwich. All were excellent, although we didn't love the tuna as much as the others. We found a table out back, but discovered there is an upstairs, air conditioned... More

Been a million times to the Gotha location. Went to New Smyrna to try out that one too. Gotha location you have to go up and order and find a table, New Smyrna has table service. Sandwiches are very creative with really fun names. Try a different one each time and each one is fabulous! Sandwiches are huge. Bring friends... More

I love funky, don't get me wrong.Sometimes funky works with little ones, and sometimes it doesn't. There aren't alot of kid friendly choices, the seating is open (meaning you wait in line to place your order and send others in your party out to scout for a table), and it was too noisy to converse sometimes. The food is interesting,... More

Per the awesome reviews here on TripAdvisor, we decided to add this to our Sunday "to do" list! Sooooo glad we did! Awesome food, quick service and great vibe. My husband and I had the Blue Suede Shoes and the Club Elvis - both were fantastic. Will definitely add this place to our must do monthly dining plans! While outside... More

Visiting Orlando and decided to check this place out. What a great little joint. Located in a mostly residential neighborhood Yellow dog eats is a beer and wine barbecue joint. This pet friendly establishment has a outdoor patio that allows you to bring in you four legged fur babies and even has a section of their menu devoted to our... More

This was on our list of places to visit, while in Orlando. We're glad we did. We came in from the back patio area and not if we seated ourselves. One of the employees, Matt, was nice enough to show us how the process works. You go up from front, look at the menu, order from the counter, and they... More

We stopped at Yellow Dog Eats on our way from Sanford airport to our condo. It's easy access and no wait atmosphere was a plus. This place is far from typical. Very groovy vibe. When you get there, grab a menu and seat yourself. Go to the counter to place your order. They offer a little of everything, tacos, burgers,... More

I'd heard about Yellow Dog Eats from a number of people and finally made it there myself. My boyfriend and I went on a Sunday afternoon. I was a little surprised about the way the ordering was set up (wait in line, order, find a table - hopefully, and then go back to the counter to collect) but it all... More
