Visiting Orlando and decided to check this place out. What a great little joint. Located in a mostly residential neighborhood Yellow dog eats is a beer and wine barbecue joint. This pet friendly establishment has a outdoor patio that allows you to bring in you four legged fur babies and even has a section of their menu devoted to our... More

This was on our list of places to visit, while in Orlando. We're glad we did. We came in from the back patio area and not if we seated ourselves. One of the employees, Matt, was nice enough to show us how the process works. You go up from front, look at the menu, order from the counter, and they... More

We stopped at Yellow Dog Eats on our way from Sanford airport to our condo. It's easy access and no wait atmosphere was a plus. This place is far from typical. Very groovy vibe. When you get there, grab a menu and seat yourself. Go to the counter to place your order. They offer a little of everything, tacos, burgers,... More

I'd heard about Yellow Dog Eats from a number of people and finally made it there myself. My boyfriend and I went on a Sunday afternoon. I was a little surprised about the way the ordering was set up (wait in line, order, find a table - hopefully, and then go back to the counter to collect) but it all... More

Very busy and the Mrs wasn't happy on arrival when discovered the etiquette was... - cue - order - grab seat (worried we wouldn't get one) - wait to be called to collect food She needn't of worried. The cue was fast, staff super pleasant, plenty of cool seating in an even cooler setting. Even the guy calling out your... More

Visited yesterday for a reunion with friends. We're not from the area and were excited to try some local fodder. We were blown away by the food. My husband had the Club Elvis pulled pork sandwich and I had the pulled pork tacos with the beer cheese sauce on the side. Absolutely delicious! With food this good it was no... More
