When you pull into the parking lot you can see and smell the pig roasting out back. The creative sandwiches and homemade sauces won’t disappoint. You don’t have to love pork to enjoy “Fish’s “ eclectic menu. It is pretty extensive and delicious.

I was so bothered by my experience during my visit that I felt I needed to share it. Yellow Dogs is a cute place, there’s no denying that. I’ve been visiting the Gotha location for years and it’s been exciting so see the restaurant grow....More

The atmosphere is funky, but the food is good. The pulled pork sandwich, which was served with a tangy sauce, was very good, and while served cold, the roasted potatoes had a nice kick. Although difficult to find if you are not familiar with Orlando,...More

Food is always great here, I love the Florida Cracker BBQ sandwich. Just enough spice with spicy pickles and bacon, slaw, piled high. The White trash is also a favorite. They do serve Beer and Wine and have local musicians on the patio.

I have wanted to eat at Yellow Dog the past few trips to Orlando but never got round to it. It always looked so tasty and different to the usual fast food joints. This time, I decided I was definitely going to try it! It...More

Yellow Dog Eats is off the beaten path in the Windermere area. It’s an old converted Florida farmhouse with a fun casual atmosphere. The staff is helpful and friendly. It always seems to be busy at anytime of the day. The menu is short but...More

I agree with the above comments. They do make most everything they serve so I am sure that if you are catering they will insure that your order is as specified regarding allergens. The owners take pride in the food they... More
