It's more like a tavern but the food is great and the people are always friendly. There is outdoor seating in the warmer months.

We visited Road Dawg restaurant while in Janesville Wisconsin and had a nice time dining here. Great burgers grilled to order will satisfy even the hungriest patron.

We stopped just for a drink while waiting for our hotel room and found this fun place. It was mostly locals, but this is one of those friendly place were you can fit righting. The food looked good and everyone seemed to enjoy it, I...would not hesitate going back and trying some. Great staff.More

I often visit Road Dawg when in Janesville. Located directly behind Festival Foods and across the street from Menards in a smallish strip mall. The restaurant is slightly smallish with not much atmosphere but very nice employees. Often frequented by locals. The menu is somewhat...limited but still a good selection with daily specials. The tap beer is extremely limited to four of which I personally don’t like any. I have never had a bad experience with the foods off the menu or the daily special. AND, the prices are VERY reasonable. I’m not sure what they do but the French Fries are some of the best. When in Janesville try them out instead of some fast food joint. But, how about improving the tap beer selections; after all, we are in Wisconsin.More

Steve is a magician behind the bar, and the best I've ever seen at his job. I've not had anything but a great experience here. My wife and I come in about 2x a month, usually get some food, which is fine, but we enjoy...the people and the staff. It is clean, beer is cold and fresh, and the game is always on. If you like to play slots, good luck, I've seen the entire row of machines in use for hours straight.More

Menu was very basic, food quality average at best, but the service was the worst. Maybe it was a bad night for her but it seemed that she wasn't really interested in taking care of customers. Do yourself a favor and go to the Milwaukee...Grill just down the street.More

This eatery was suggested to us by the local hotel. We simply had to walk across the parking lot to get to it. We sat down and immediately a server was there to take our drink order. He promptly brought our adult beverages and asked...if we were ready to order. He took our orders and within 7 minutes we had our food served to us! The special of the night was excellent and reasonably priced and my specialty burger was great! Everything was prepared well and served piping hot! The waiter was very attentive to our requests. The music being played was a bit loud, but after all it was after work hours and happy hour time. Definitely would recommend Road Dawg!More
