The place is very original... Menu offers quality with unique combinations, providing unique choices. All while the decor draws you into a wonderful blend of boutique charm offering craft beers, wine, and excellent food and music. Definitely will return and highly suggest for a unique lunch experience.

I visited Yellow Dog Eats on November 4th and while the food was good the service was bad to horrible for the most part. This was my first visit and I had my fiancé and best friend (who was visiting from Boston) with me. My friend ordered first and informed the cashier it was our first time at the place... More

This place is a trip! Very hippiesh combined with some awesome culinary combos. The pulled pork nachos are delish, the sandwiches are hefty and yummy. Quality ingredients in very interesting combinations. Don't skip the homemade treats, even if you take them home cause you are too full. I travel 40 minutes from Southwest Orlando to go here because it is... More

I visited Yellow Dog Eats with a friend for a lunch meeting. Yellow Dog Eats is located in a renovated and expanded house. It has a laid back atmosphere with somewhat psychedelic themes. The employees were friendly and the service was prompt. It is a counter service restaurant. They have BBQ sandwiches with creative names. The food was quite good.... More
