“Hit that spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

My wife and I went there after spending the day hiking. It was getting late but that did not affect the quality of the food and service. Waiters were courteous and patient: they made recommendations that we really enjoyed. I appreciated the fact that they did not try to upsell us (i.e. 'Get the larger pizza and add more toppings, you can always take the leftovers home).

“Good little pizza joint”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

My wife and I stopped into Blue Dog with family while in Tahoe on vacation, and found it to be a really good. The pizza is the focus here, but we also enjoyed the salads. The pizza has a moderately thick crust, with no scrimping on toppings. The place is fairly basic, with pizza pans serving as their version of plates. Nice beer selection, friendly staff, and reasonable prices. Seems like a local place even though the 2 locations I'm aware of are located very near the tourists areas of S. Lake Tahoe and I'm sure attract its share of out-of-towners, like us.

“REALLY GOURMET PIZZA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

We were camping in So. Lake Tahoe and asked the gal at the check in desk if she would recommend a pizza place. We went to Blue Dog, on her recommendation, and what a winner! We "built our own" pizza and the toppings were very generous and delicious. The crust was medium thick, not really thin which we prefer, however the sauce and toppings trumped the crust. The Blue Dog offers draft beer which goes great with their pizza. Very happy with this restaurant and would definitely return.

“Tasty Pizza ... Good Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

We wanted pizza for dinner ... and planned on eating at another place across the street. The wait was too long ... so we ate at Blue Dog and glad we did. The pizza was great, exceptional service, good draft beer selection, and fun environment. A lot of great pizza at a reasonable price.

“Yum!”

Blue Dog delivered delicious pizzas without issue. I'm from Chicago, and we know a good pizza when we see one.
