“Feels like home”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

I've been in Ecuador for the past week and it felt great to find a place that offers great beer instead of the typical pilsner and club stuff. He atmosphere is a mix of locals and tourist from around the world so it is always a good time and chill unlike other bars in the banos area, and one of the owners looks a lot like Jay from Jamiroquai.

“Best beer in Ecuador!”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Good food and good beer! Everytime I went in Jason, the chef, came by and told us about other dinner options that weren't on the menu. The food is so good, excellent staff and great beer. I only regret I didn't get to try everything on the menu!

“Throat of Fire IPA!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

If you have been in Ecuador a while, you're probably missing a good strong beer. This is the place to go. The Throat of Fire IPA is a whopping 7.5%, which if you've gotten used to Pilsener, will leave you ready to take on the night.

Furthermore, the Wendy's bacon cheeseburger is excellent. Beer and bacon, all in one place. What more could you want?

“excellent beer and food”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Good microbrew is hard to find in Ecuador but this place has it. The beers cost $2.50-3 and food is around $6. Try their chips and salsa, its freshly made chips and its delicious!! And their food is really good too.

“Unexpected taste of home”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

After growing tired of the flavorless "Pilsener" beer, The Stray Dog was a very pleasant surprise. Beers are microbrew and from the tap, with prices barely more than the cheap bottles of Pilsener at bars. In our trip, they included a great Pilsner, IPA and Stout. There was a blackberry flavored wheat beer that was just okay. Food was also great, though definitely a long wait. Good burgers. Tried the Cuban, which was a good sandwich in itself but far from a great Cuban.

Went back the next night, and had we stayed longer in Banos, would definitely have been a regular.
