One of our favorite spots to go for BBQ. Really tasty combinations of bbq with toppings and sauces. Really good beer selection. The atmosphere is great as well. Very fun, loose atmosphere. Cool place. Worth your time. Try it.

Very creative, gourmet sandwiches made with fresh ingredients. Great atmosphere with much larger than expected interior.

Tucked in the woods in gotha, which is between Ocoee and Windermere. It's easy to get lost so stay on Hempel. Nice dishes.

Yellow Dog is a cool place where you can have a good lunch surrounded of beautiful and local people, particularly I love to go there to drink a good beer and listen to a good music.

Our daughter is a student at UCF. Every time we visit her we have to go to Yellow Dog Eats. Amazing food and love the cool, hippie ambiance.
