Fun quirky lunch spot!  Very different menu items and combinations you would never think of.  Want macaroni and cheese on your pulled pork sandwich?  That's a thing.  Homemade hot sauces and wide variety of beer and wine.  Pet friendly and an amazing porch to hang out on.  I would highly recommend for a laid back lunch spot!

My husband and I are visiting Orlando for a conference and we needed a keto-friendly restaurant. Thanks to Yelp I found this place! We took some friends who live in Orlando (who had never been to the restaurant before) and they loved it! We all enjoyed our meals and the restaurant is interesting all by itself! If you like dogs or cats, this place has artwork and knickknacks all over the place that depict cats and dogs. It really is adorable. I recommend this place to anyone on a keto, vegan or vegetarian diet. More...

This review is late because I wanted to come back and dine in. From what I saw though it's a cool little spot and the salad I ordered was delicious! I'll be back when I'm in Orlando again. More...

Hidden Gem! My husband and I have drove by Yellow Dog Eats severa times wondering what the hype was all about. Today we decided to check them and were really impressed!The atmosphere is so chill, reminded us of Key West, and the food is amazing. Apparently they big item on the menu is pulled pork, they have their own BBQ station out back. We shared the pulled pork nachos with beer cheese soup, they were delicious and big enough to leave is full. They were so amazing that we forgot to snap a photo of them. They have indoor and outdoor sitting and have live musicians at night. Parking in front and plenty of parking outback, but be careful with the rooster roaming the area!Dog friendly as well. More...

Amazing potato salad - they use what appear to be roasted potatoes in the potato salad. Yum. The curried chicken salad wrap was excellent and all the cute doggos visiting were a great addition.

Can't wait to come back !! You order your food, find a seat and when they call your name you pick up your delicious food! As soon as our plates were cleared they were picked up off of our table, we were asked twice if we needed anything. Great customer service all around. Ambiance is cute and laid back. Dogs are allowed on patio! More...

I LOVE the Holy Crap signature sandwich! The bacon on it is phenomenal, the turkey is just right, the avocado on it is amazing, and the multigrain bread is pressed perfectly. This past time I also ordered a small side of the tomato and mozzarella salad, which was good but not great - I probably wouldn't get it again, also a friend ordered the Greek orzo salad and it was just mediocre... but their sandwiches and pulled pork are fantastic. We have ordered both take out and dine in from here, and every time the food is great. My husband always orders the pulled pork soft tacos, and they are quite good. The inside is definitely unique and the outdoor patio section is enjoyable and shaded. We went on a Tuesday and on Tuesdays they have free bingo for you to play (you can win free drinks/desserts, etc.).They have a dessert case full of different bars which look great - I was going to buy a couple when we were leaving (the butter bar, and raspberry lime cheesecake bar look soooo good), but at this point there was a long line at the register so I decided I would get them another day.

An old co-worker told me about this spot in Orlando 6 years ago...and I'm embarrassed it's taken me this long to get to YDE! As a creature of habit paired with the thought that it was out of my way, I just never tried it.Met up with an old friend for lunch Sunday which is like a 10 min drive from the heart of Dr. Phillips. To my surprise there is A LOT of parking availability behind the restaurant. Upon walking in there was a cool looking van, perfect for a photo opportunity before walking past some cool greenery into the patio of the restaurant. The patio area is very hodgepodge and hipster. DOG FRIENDLY! Woho! I should have brought my pup (next time).At the front of what looks like was a house transformed into restaurant you scope out menu items and order/pay at a window. There's a large beverage selection of craft beers to pair perfectly with your sandwich or wrap. Once your order is ready they announce your name on the intercom so you don't miss a beat.I was excited to try "What the Fig?" with a jalepeno relish jam and goat cheese with french fried onions. I wish the slaw side was a little larger of a portion but alas. It was good nevertheless. My friend ordered thai chicken curry salad which presented very nicely! The cucumbers were chopped in a creative fun shape. It's the little things, ha. More...

This was a great place to stop in for lunch. Found it on yelp, and did not regret eating there. The food was fresh and delicious, and the flavors were unique and tasty. If we lived closer, it would be our regular for sure. Definitely recommend. More...

This place is like a mullet. Business upfront and a party in the back! Fun atmosphere and casual feel. The menu all seemed appealing but we settled on the pulled pork nachos but substituted chicken. They were phenomenal. The ratio of topping to chips was ideal. We ordered a few desserts to go back to our hotel. The orange cream cake was the highlight!Leave the Disney compound and go here!

An awesome spot for food and drinks. They have an extensive menu with some great pulled pork sandwiches. They have great craft beer and a covered patio outside. They allow pets which is another benefit. It is a quick service restaurant but is great for groups or individuals. The atmosphere is very unique for Florida. Great hidden gem. More...

Quite possibly among my top 5 most enjoyable dining experiences I've had in a long time. While on a road trip with our pup, we saw that this place was dog friendly. Excited to go anywhere else besides Chick-Fil-A, we went the 15 minutes out of our way from the Florida turnpike and are so glad we did. Awesome live music, a great beer and wine list, pup-friendly food, friendly staff and some of best food I've had in a while (and this is on the heels of a two week trip to Cape Cod). My husband had the pulled pork salad and I had the Cubana which was on special. Both were mouth watering. The decor was awesome and two of our three boys had a blast hanging out in an old VW van.  Already looking forward to getting back to this little hidden gem! More...

Love, love, love Yellow Dog Eats. I've visited twice now. It's a super cute fun place to go for lunch. Beautiful covered outdoor patio, comfortable even in the heat of a Florida summer. Pepsi products. This most recent visit I got the Buffalo Soldier wrap. It was S P I C Y, so don't order it if you're not prepared for that! I did make the small substitution of no blue cheese because I hate the stuff, which they made for me gladly. Tbh having that might help cool down the spice. I wasn't sure I'd like the orange mayo but actually it was a pleasant sweetness with the spice of everything else. Loved the jalepeno ranch and pepperjack cheese is always a win. Overall truly a tasty bite. The only negative was as I got to the ends of the wrap there was waaaaay too much sauce, so it ended up super messy. But that's a small price to pay for the amount of flavor in the meals here. More...

Local gem! Love this place, great selection of food for all eaters.  If you like pulled pork and are looking for something a bit different, I highly recommend the pulled pork nachos.  I personally am a huge fan of the holy crap sandwich and love their tomato and mozzarella salad.  The place as an eclectic style and most of the seating is on a covered patio with lots of fans.  Be prepared to wait in line to order, especially at peak times.  There is ample parking around the back and there is often live music. A very fun place to grab a bite to eat and relax. More...

So, first off I'm not sure exactly why it took me so long to update my review. We have eaten here a number of times over the last few years and it is always delicious. Stopped here for lunch yesterday. And Saturday at lunch time was super busy, but we still didn't have to park too far away, and although the line was long it moved quickly and we were able to find seating fairly easily. Best of all the food was all super awesome scumpdillyishus! My wife went for the classic Blue Suede Shoes and I tried their Kitty Kat tuna sandwich, both were fresh and delicious. Of course the atmosphere is a blast. More...

We were greeted at the door right away by the friendly staff! Food was awesome! I got the fire pig wrap and it was great. My boyfriend got the blue suede shoes sandwich and the sweetness of the BBQ sauce and the tanginess of the blue cheese really came together for a great sandwich. Very lively atmosphere. Definitely coming back. More...

This place is a little gem. It's such a cute local restaurant with amazing food!! My friend and I were first timers who probably looked a little lost so the owner or manager came out and spoke to us and explained the menu and made some really great suggestions. After you order in line you grab a seat--there's outdoor, indoor, upstairs seating. There's fans outside so it's not too hot and some great music! The food was PHENOMENAL. One of the best sandwiches I've ever had! My friend got the pulled pork and it was also amazing!!! I'd definitely make the trip out to Windermere for this place again! More...

One of my favorite local spots! There are so many good things to order too but what remains constant in my order regardless of the sandwich or wrap I pick is the tomatoes & mozzarella salad, the Waldorf salad & the curry chicken salad! Oh and of course can't forget about dessert! They have the best chocolate cake in town! More...

Just found my favorite place to wait out our afternoon rain storms! Love to hear the rain on the tin roof here at Yellow Dog Eats! My sandwich, the Holy Crap, was to-die-for too! Mesquite smoked turkey pressed with avocado, goat cheese and basil mayo!!!  Yummmmmm!Others in party had the What the fig and the Drunken Pig. I liked the What the fig almost as much as the Holy Crap, the Drunken pig not as much. Next time I'm going to have the salmon BLT.The outside seating is great with fans doing an amazing job of keeping it pleasant. Even if it hadn't been pouring down rain I wouldn't have wanted to leave. More...

Slap yo mama good bbq sandwich!The Florida Cracker pulled pork sandwich with Golden bbq sauce,  fried onions, spicy pickles, coleslaw and bacon is the perfect combo of flavors and textures. This is a two-handed sandwich that aims to please. The only thing that could have made this meal better would be a side of fried pickles or season fries. The restaurant has a very cool vibe with some inside seating but mainly covered outside tables. On the weekends they offer live music on the patio. Service was extremely fast once you place your order at the counter.We definitely will be back for more. And I'll will make sure to buy a bottle of their Golden Bbq sauce. It was tangy and sweet mustard base sauce but unlike most mustard bbq I eat this everyday. More...

The wife and I have been here twice.  I have to say the food thus far has been delicious.  Parking out back was a bit confusing my first time here but it didn't take too long to figure it out.  I'm not a big fan of mustard and their signature sauces seem to be a bit mustard heavy, but the combinations of flavor help mellow it out and the bite a good experience.  First time customers be aware this is a counter service restaurant and the line gets a bit crowded during busier times.  If you're coming in the front door be prepared to walk through the line to get to the back of it.  Maybe next time we'll bring the mutt to enjoy the back patio.

Hands-down, this is one of my favorite places to eat. I love the atmosphere, the food of course, and a great selection of beers and wines. The staff goes out of their way to make you feel welcome. There are so many different food items on their menu that you can come here every day of the week and still have multiple options to choose from. I do recommend the fire pig if you like spicy barbecue pork. But be sure to check out the specials as they change daily. I can't really think of anything negative to say about this place except sometimes due to its popularity it gets a little busy. There's a great energy in the restaurant and again, make sure you check out this place multiple times to fully appreciate all that they have to offer. More...

If you are looking for an out of the ordinary break from all of the chainy restaurants in Orlando, this is the place.  From the street view to the cozy interior to the funky back patio area, Yellow Dog Eats is unique.  Then they take BBQ to a different place too, with a menu that features pulled pork in at least 14 ways.  It was a fabulous surprise !

If you haven't been here, you're missing out! Once you do come, you're going to have a very difficult time choosing what to order because everything sounds.. and is... so amazing! I ordered the Hokey Poke Tacos and they were so tasty I practically was licking my plate. The service was great, accommodating, and quick. The beer is extra cold. The restaurant had cute decor and was clean. Brought my 4 young children and would say it's very family friendly. We are only in NSB for a couple days, but have already decided to come back again before we leave. Go check them out, you won't regret it! More...

We finally came in for a late lunch on a Saturday and found one of our new NSB favorites. We started with the hummus and chips. The hummus was delicious. The chips were just bagged pita chips. We tried a few different pork and turkey options and all were devoured. The patio area in the back was a nice break from the heat and we loved the tunes. Can't wait to come back as there are several other items on the menu we want to try. More...

This is an amazing local spot, nestled in Gotha and is an eatery transformed from a home. It has so much charm, an outdoor patio with live music, and tons of dog pictures all around, of course. Then there's the amazing food, unique sandwiches, salads and more. A must try for anyone tired of a chain restaurant. Moderately priced, I'm sometimes still hungry so the portions are a touch small  for me, but that depends on what you get, some are huge! Seating can be tough at peak hours, try off hours if you can. Go here and dig in, you won't regret it!!! And if you have a pup, bring a pic and mark your spot on the wall More...

Wow, so we just randomly picked this to have lunch at and let me tell you. The food was so good, I had the white trash sandwich. Unbelievably delicious, the chips make such a great side item. The slaw on the sandwich is almost perfect, pulled pork was so tender and full of flavor, bacon, CHEESE and the SAWWWCCEEE.... don't forget the sauce. Customer service was just as good, food and drinks came out soon and the prices aren't anything extreme More...

Their food is ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!!! Pictured here is "Club Elvis" which is described as "our pulled pork decadently topped with thickly sliced bacon, gouda cheese and fried onions on a bun with coleslaw and chips. top off your sandwich with the slaw, its hog heaven" on their menu. Everything on this sandwich paired together perfectly. I'm also a picky eater, and they kindly, but a little stand-offishly made my sandwich without barbecue sauce, understandably so, since their homemade barbecue sauce is their signature thing, but I unfortunately can't say I felt too comfortable asking them to do that. Otherwise, my sandwich was absolutely delicious, everything tasted so fresh and well-made. I paired it with some original kettle cooked chips (my favorite!!) and an Arnold Palmer which I was able to pour myself. If you love small, delicious, family owned businesses, this place is for you!!! The atmosphere was incredible and super cool to take pictures with. They have all kinds of lights and cool old-school 70's buses everywhere. And they definitely allow dogs lol! Super cool place, I recommend. More...

After a boat tour with Florida Lakes Tours, which we purchased on Groupon, we came here for lunch at the suggestion of the boat captain. I am not a pulled pork fan, which is mostly the kind of BBQ they have besides ribs.  I got the ribs, which comes with a bag of chips (not homemade)  and a very, very small amount of their own cole slaw. I didn't care for the cole slaw. I prefer mine creamy. The ribs had a full flavored rub on them.  You almost don't even need the BBQ sauce,  but you should definitely try it.  Self serve soda dispenser allows for refills. They have a black cat that stays on the property,  apparently.  There was a little cat tent.  It was very friendly.  I would come back if they expanded there BBQ meat options to include chicken or beef to that WASN'T pulled.

Lunch stop during first trip to NSB - casual place, beach bar vibe, friendly staff.  Tuna nachos were awesome, Florida Cracker was good but not remarkable.  Disappointed that coleslaw had was very bland and pretty much what you would get at a cafeteria.  Chips were just a bag that you would buy at a convenience store.  For those reasons I would actually give YDE  3.5 stars, but being optimistic that the rest of the food was more like the nachos.

I've been coming to Yellow Dog for so many years now. It's one of the best places to eat near me! They have a really great menu selection and you can customize just about anything you want by adding or taking something off you don't like. They have a great selection for beer too that are pretty unique. I love trying a new one every time I go. The bar man is really nice and helpful and gives you samples of you don't want to pick!My favorite sandwich is the yellow dog classic. It's not the most extravagant option they have but I love it! The atmosphere is always great at this place. They have places to sit inside on the bottom level, upstairs, and even on the back patio which is covered so when it rains you can still enjoy eating there! The outside deck also has a sink so you can wash your hands and a bunch of paper towels because they're sandwiches can get really messy! They also have live music at certain times and if not music playing over the speakers.The manager is one of the nicest people ever. He always comes over to each table while he's cleaning up or walking around and asks how everything's going or just to chat. The staff there is always really nice and never stuck up and super patient.Only downside to yellow dog is the parking. It can be hard to get in and out especially if there is a lot of traffic but I've never had too much of an issue. More...

Incredible food in an unassuming part of town!Down a few old Florida roads and across from the old Town church sits some of the best BBQ you can find in the tri-county area. Few places really accomplish great BBQ and great atmosphere: Yellow Dog Eats does, and then some! With cozy seating on the patio or up stairs, BBQ that melts in your mouth, sauces that outshine the nearby fireworks and am amazing selection of drinks: this eatery really has it all. Eaters beware: like all good BBQ joints, they only make so much food for a day. Call ahead! More...

5 Food5 Friendliness & Helpfulness of employees5 Ambiance & CleanlinessCentral Florida and BBQ, what a combo. Yellow Dog Eats is a must-stop for your pulled-pork hankering. Their location, not along any main thoroughfare, fits their "this isn't like every other place" food and vibe. Menu choices abound, so, if you're in line to order and need more time, it's worth the step back. And, no one behind you will quarrel!My latest sandwich was The Florida Cracker and all the components - tangy slaw, spicy pickles, bacon, Gouda cheese, fried onions, and the BBQ sauce - enhanced the wonderfully seasoned and moist pulled pork. The house slaw didn't make it on my platter but I didn't notice until I looked at my sandwich pic afterwards! No hesitation here with ordering this flavor-full sandwich again. My wife chose sweet potato tacos from the vegetarian menu (yes, it's own menu!) and all I heard from her after the first bite was, "This is so good. This is sooo good." I think that says it all. Set in a historical two-story building, with plenty of seating out back, and, as an added bonus, you'll hear an occasional rooster crowing. The employees were friendly and extremely helpful. All around an easy 5 star experience. Go out of your way; it's worth it! More...

Been here a few times, enjoy the food here, never disappoints. Service is quick, lunch is always slower, get your food super quick. If you come for dinner, the line most likely will be outside. Rule of thumb: if the place is always busy, they’re doing something right. See ya soon YDE. More...

We hadn't been to YDE in years, but decided to meet up with some friends on a Saturday for lunch and was pleasantly surprised! It was so good! The atmosphere is amazing! Covered outdoor space that was surprisingly cool in the Florida heat! We had some kiddos with us and there is an old bus that I think is meant for seating however is a good place for the kids to hang out and stay occupied. I ordered the Yellow Dog Club. Really good! Very crispy bacon and who doesn't love smoked gouda cheese! Also had a sweet orange mayo that was a good touch. My hubby tried to not eat meat so thought to try the vegetarian menu. He got the sweet potato tacos and wasn't a fan. Said it didn't have a lot of flavor and the black beans were cold so will try a different dish next time. I would recommend going earlier because it does get busy, even at lunch! We got there at 1130 and found a seat no problem but by the time we left around 1 the outside was full. We will be back!

Great spot for food, brew and enjoying the porch life with your pup. Dog friendly, we enjoyed lunch and a few beers. I had the baby back ribs and my husband got the Florida cracker. The FC was AMAZING. The first round of ribs had been over cooked and the manager brought over a new batch without request. The new batch was great. The sauce is yummy. The people are super friendly. We will be back to enjoy an evening when they have live bands. I absolutely love a cool porch environment to have a few drinks, listen to music and have a nice time with family and friends. More...

I love YDE! Super creative sandwiches and amazing hummus, in a cute old house with indoor/outdoor seating. I'm not even a huge fan of sandwiches but theirs are so high quality and inventive. They also just added a brand new menu for vegans and vegetarians, which was a huge plus for me because now I have even more choices when I come here! There's also a great craft beer selection, with a few on draft. Don't miss out on this place if you find yourself in the Orlando area :) More...

I’ve been going to Yellow Dog Eats since it opened, but I’ve got to admit, it had been a while since I had been recently. The new outdoor seating area was a pleasant surprise. More room inside fora queue without all the tables in the way and great seating outside in a comfortable environment. Love it! Mix that with awesome sandwiches (although I’m sad the Puppy Love isn’t on the menu anymore) and awesome BBQ - this is a must do for any foodie in the Orlando area. I personally love the Johnny Rocket which is this amazing mix of sweet and savory on a turkey sandwich but everything I’ve had is amazing. Sandwiches come with chips and a very small coleslaw but the sides you can add are awesome. The tomato and mozzarella is my favorite with some extra balsamic on top. Yum! Save room for deserts - they are amazing and locally made. Can’t wait to come back - and I won’t wait as long this time! More...

I've been here a few times and with each time my enjoyment grows. The first time I went I wasn't a big fan of barbecue and had heard of the place for multiple years and was moderately pleased with what I ordered (can't remember what it was now). I took my team there for a group lunch with half of them never being there before. There was a good mix of orders between tacos to sandwiches to barbecue. Personally I ordered The Dog's "Famous" Pulled Pork Sandwich. I had this sandwich the last time I was in and although it's messy, it's worth it! We ate out on the back patio during a mega storm and stayed comfortably dry and cool. One thing I enjoy about eating here is there is a sink right outside to wash your hands from the barbecue! The food comes out quick and there is a fun retro vibe to enjoy! I'm definitely looking forward to coming back sometime for trivia. More...

Come here for amazing pulled pork sandwiches. This place came highly recommended by local co-workers. We came on a Thursday and there was live music in the outdoor seating area. Food is ordered inside towards the front (the bar is separate but you can order your drinks at the front too) and then you are given a number to bring back to your table.I ordered the Florida cracker (pulled pork, over coleslaw, gouda, bacon, pickles, onions and a bbq sauce) and boy did it deliver. I loved the quirky names and descriptions the menu had. I also ordered the avocado hummus. I felt that this was lacking in some flavor and we did not end up finishing this order. Overall I would come again to try the rest of their menu but would skip the hummus! More...

30 April 2019

This was my first trip, but it will not be my last. It was out of the way from our hotel, but well worth the trip across town. The owner walked around the entire time we were there giving recommendations and checking on our experience. It isn’t like any other places we have stopped. It’s not a sit down and order type of place. You go up to the counter and order them get your seats. You can sit inside, upstairs or under the huge covered area outside. We sat outside and there was a second bar out there as well, and cool lights and a ton of fans to keep it cool. Recommend getting the watermelon wheat to drink and the Rufus to eat add bacon. You can’t go wrong with a single item on the menu. Especially the desserts; we tried the bacon salted caramel brownie, the butter brownie, and the orange creamsicle cake. This place is friendly, delicious and well worth any wait time. If you are in Orlando or just driving through you will regret missing Yellow Dog Eats! 10/10 experience More...

Second time here and it was just a great as the first time! Big portions and great ingredients. Vegan and vegetarian options too!! Just to note, not a lot of indoor seating, but the covered patio has lots of fans and is fun and quaint to dine on. Think of the patio as more of an outdoor room, than a deck. Check it out, it's great! More...

I have never been to Yellow Dog Eats before today but have heard about it from family members that have been. I had the Classic Yellow Dog Club sandwich. It was great. I loved the flavor of it with the smoked gouda cheese. The atmosphere was very fun and lively. I like the fact that you can bring your dog. We didn't bring ours as he's still too hyper...maybe someday. They have a cat named Montell that hangs out there and even has his own mailbox! Great place! I hope to go back again. More...

Been a couple of years since I visited here. What I used to love was how went you were there it was almost as if the employees were your friends. A very chilled and friendly vibe. Sadly I didn't get that feeling for a second last night. The new girl (didn't catch her name) was really nice, but the rest just didn't seem like they wanted to be there. Just a tip for the staff, when you run out of your daily special, you should let the customers know. Or at least take down/erase the sign advertising it. Moving on... I got the 'famous' pulled pork sandwich. 10/10. Absolutely phenomenal. The bread was soft and fresh. The meat was cooked perfectly and the sauce... I don't actually know what's in the sauce but it is RIDICULOUSLY good. The sandwich comes with a bag of chips and a tiny tiny side of coleslaw. They have a good selection of beer and wine. You can either order it with your food, or they have indoor and outdoor bars you can walk up to. Speaking of outdoor... this is the spot! The decor is awesome. Random tables. A van sitting at the back. Hanging lights streaming across the entire outdoor section. The stage also has an awesome light setup. If you come here, you need to take a seat outside. It's completely covered so don't worry about the rain. I don't know if it is only on specific days, but they have live music outside too. The girl last night had a really nice voice and it was the icing on the cake for the awesome food we wolfed down. More...

This was a super funky fun place. I think I loved the place more than the food though. The food selections included wraps, bowls, sandwiches, tacos and lots of bbq. They had fun quirky little sauces too. They also have local beers and wines.We ordered the Fire Pig and the What the fig. Both had pulled pork but one was basically a wrap or burrito and the other was a sandwich. It was fun to eat and had some cool sweet and savory flavors, but for me the ambiance was most memorable. I'd probably go back just bc I loved that so much. They have two other locations in FL. Perhaps I'll check those out! It's super dog friendly here too and I know that prob.  made me even more excited. This place is super instagram worthy too :-)! More...

This was some satisfying eating. The set up is crazy confusing and in my opinion should be modified. So this is located on the middle of a residential neighborhood. There are a few parking spaces in front but the majority of the parking is in back. When you walk into the back you walk in to the al fresco eating area.  There is no signage and one could assume is open seating and then a server takes your order. That's not the case. You are supposed to walk to the front, order, go sit down and then get called back up to receive the order. In addition the space for ordering is tiny and gets crowded if 4 people come in at the same time. I'm a process person so this is mad annoying. But now that I have explained that to you, perhaps you can have a better experience.Food. We had the veggie nachos and the pulled pork fig. The fig sauce was super sweet but good. The pork was delicious. The coleslaw was delicious because it was not super sweet and crunchy. My husband loved the nachos which says a lot because he is discerning. The chocolate cake (we were on vacay non judgement) was also not super sweet so I loved it but hubs said not enough crumble for him.  it was huge. We couldn't finish it. More...

So I've been wanting to try yellow dog eats since everyone has been ravinggggg. Well I decided to stop by on Sunday to see what all the rave was about. Walking in around 1pm It was busyyyyy. The line was huge but it went pretty quick. The menu was a little different from the ones on here as they now they have a vegan menu which looked amazing! (Sorry I wasn't able to take a pic, I had the kiddos with me) I ordered the buffalo chicken nachos, hokey poke tacos, for the kids I ordered cheese quesadilla and turkey sandwich. The buffalo chicken nachos was great, I really enjoyed the salad on top as it was a nice refresher with the heat. The tacos were amazing, huge portions and very flavorful. The kids really enjoyed their lunches and ate every bit of it. What I really wanted was brisket but that is not on the menu so definitely have to find another location for brisket. Hint Hint :-) Overall, loved the decor, servers were pleasant, food was amazing and sitting outside enjoying this Florida weather is definitely worth the wait. If you don't mind waiting then this is a must. If you don't want to wait ten call ahead and order. More...

Holy sh*t, this place is AMAZING! A little hidden gem that you have to visit.I went for dinner with a friend around 5 PM ish and it wasn't too packed. The place has a hipster/eclectic vibe, which I wouldn't expect for Windermere. You order and pick up at the counter. We were helped by Melissa, who was super nice and friendly. Being my first time here, she gave a lot of great recommendations. She even let me sample some of their coconut cake to make me a believer (because I hate coconut)...and it literally tasted like a piña colada cake. Though I don't think she was supposed to give me a sample....The seating is located in the back and it's a covered patio area. There's plenty of fans and I felt pretty cool despite the 83 degree weather. There's an old red Volkswagen van that you can sit in as well. Mismatched tables and decor make it feel really homey. Anyways, we ordered the Dog's "Famous" Pulled Pork Sandwich and a full slab of ribs. And both did not disappoint! The sandwich came with sea salt potato chips and a little cup of coleslaw. And it was delicious! It was slathered with their BBQ sauce which is mustard based. It's sweet but also has a slight tang with a little hint (like very little) of spice. It was so freaking good. I loved the sauce so much that I was dipping my chips in it (so weird, I know...). The ribs were so tender and moist. It took minimal effort to eat because the meat melted into my mouth. And it came with sauce as well. I enjoyed eating it with the sauce but you can taste more of the smokiness without it. We were so full that we didn't have enough room for dessert but they looked so delicious. There were a ton of different kinds of brownies. I thoroughly enjoyed this place and will definitely be back! There were so many great options on the menu too, including some vegan and vegetarian options. I highly recommend that you try it out! Also ask for Melissa if you need help because she's awesome More...

Quality food no matter what you order and a fun ambiance around every inch of the restaurant. The walls are covered by the names and ramblings of satisfied customers. The place is dog friendly, even sell some dog treats, so be on the look out for some good boys. As good as the pulled pork sandwich is, I am more impressed with their vegan options. The grilled veggie focaccia and the jackfruit tacos are my favorite entrees. The eggplant and yellow squash flavor blends so well with that red pepper pesto, and the jackfruit tacos are elevated by the mouthwatering avocado slaw and mango aioli.  The price of the food matches the quality and diverse selection of food for a BBQ restaurant. The backyard is such a fun place to eat and hang out and have some drinks. Their craft beer and the wine selection are worth a visit alone. Come check out this Gotha gem if you get the chance!

I love their pulled pork sandwich it comes with a small side of coleslaw and Ms. Vickie's chips. I also very much enjoy their tomato mozzarella with balsamic drizzle! This place has such a relax, fun, welcoming environment! The outdoors is set to "your own back yard vibe" feel with plenty of fans to keep the air circulating!  Their is an out door bar if you get thirsty, and inside they have a main floor and top floor level with the same cool, relax, at home vibe! The menu offers a good variety to choose from, including wraps oohhh and a good selection of deserts and beverages! It is well located with enough parking and a good place to hang out and also family friendly! More...

This rarely happens, because usually my husband and I want to try two different things so we get to taste more. But this day, we both decided to go for the same sandwich (with different main meats). He went for the original *Florida Cracker* - pulled pork with tangy coleslaw, gouda, pecan-smoked bacon, spicy pickles, fried onions, topped with gold bbq sauce, served on Texas toast with -- I asked for them to substitute with turkey instead of pork. Served with kettle cooked chips.WOW this sandwich was PERFECT with its carousel of textures: crunchy, creamy, flavors: sweet, salty, savory - just incredible.And it came out fast!AND the atmosphere is killer! Great decor, fun options to sit under a disco ball or inside of a VW bus.Friendly service, great passion fruit sour beer too.Really wonderful experience. More...

Love to stop at Yellow Dog Eats when I'm in the area!This restaurant has the facade of an old house, you'd pass it by without knowing what's really inside. Parking is located in the back and you walk through the outdoor seating to get to the counter to place your order. The menu used to be huge. The first 2 times I stopped here it was kind of overwhelming to pick an item. They changed the menu about 6 months ago, and it is much smaller. The only downside of this is that they've stopped making my favorite veggie wrap, the Downward Dog. On my most most recent visit I ordered another vegetable wrap that was just as good! They also have awesome sides to pick from and usually have a special or two on occasion. With your sandwich or wrap you will get a side of pita chips and house made hummus- so yummy! After ordering at the counter you will wait for your name to be called. There is seating upstairs as well as outside. The staff are friendly, the restaurant is clean, and the food is great! Just wish they would bring back the Downward Dog wrap. More...

One of the best places to grab lunch on the weekend. Amazing atmosphere with a perfect outdoor patio to enjoy the Florida weather. Food is great have had multiple items and never been disappointed. The nachos are perfect to split with some one. They also have a great selection of craft beer. Only downside is finding parking during peak lunch or dinner rush. More...

One of my favorite sandwiches resides here, the "HOLY CRAP"! Other than sandwiches, Yellow Dog Eats provides wraps, nachos, wonderful BBQ choices, daily specials and more! I absolutely adore the laid back eclectic feel and the outdoor seating with tunes to enjoy your meal to. The occasional game night and live entertainment is a plus and let's not forget you can bring your furry friends! More...

Come from out of state to eat here! I don't typically eat pork, however every sandwich and salad here is flavored so well, I always have to try the latest pork menu items. Laid back atmosphere but workers are efficient and on their game. Such unique decor, always such a fun conversation piece.  We buy BBQ sauce to bring home from their gift shop, we love it so much. Highly recommend to anyone - menu items for vegetarians also. More...

Always a delicious meal here.  Show up slightly hungry as there is always a line so by the time you get your meal you'll be fully hungry and ready for your meal.  There is always a line, but it's usually quick ans gives you time to change your mind a few times (a problem I have anyways).  Overall the food is yummy, the building is decorated super cute and I love the sustainability they try to do by not using straws and encourage reusable cups.  You will go home full and happy.

Awesome BBQ joint great for the whole family! I recommend the pulled pork nachos and best dessert hands down is the mother fudging chocolate cake! You can find out what special of the day they have by going to their Facebook page as well. More...

We got so lucky for finding this place ! I love the vibe and it is such a cute spot - the decor, string lights, everything. I ordered the holy crap sandwich - this sandwich was prob the best turkey sandwich I have had in a long time . The turkey was literally piled high, which is a rarity these days. I'm not a big goat cheese person but it complemented the sandwich wonderfully.  The bread even tasted home made. Amazing find! We will be back ! More...

It's a pretty good place. I had the "pulled pork nachos" but substituted for chicken instead of pork. I like the feel of the place, which is a mix of an old, country, rustic, artsy, home feeling. Fairly relaxing, actually. And the food tasted very homemade which I loved. It didn't taste heavy at all, and now I want to try more! I didn't know they had live music on certain days so I'll definitely have to check that out next time. Will return. More...

Found this little gem after we left one of the parks. We had 3 different pulled pork sandwiches and we each enjoyed them. Highly recommend the "What the fig", the Mr. Smoky and the original. The sangria was very good as well and it was happy hour all day. The sangria was buy one get one for 1/2. So if you're looking for a non-chain restaurant in Orlando give this place a try. More...

When looking for somewhere to eat I always seem to overlook Yellow Dog, not for any reason because the food is fantastic , so when we needed a dinner spot we decided to go , for my entree I had the pulled pork salad, it was full of fresh veggies and a heaping amount of pulled pork on top, and extremely filling, we sat on the back patio and they where having trivia night which made for a fun evening.

This place is cool!  It's a quirky maze of cozy spaces with crazy stuff, great music, awesome food, and a VW van you can eat in.  It's one of the most perfect restaurant experiences I've ever had.Had the ribs and they were unbelievable!I cant recommend it enough.  I will most definitely be back when I'm in Florida again.  So glad to finally find a place like this that's close enough to where I stay for business trips.

Stopped in for a late lunch. Great menu options, something for everyone. You order at the front of building and then find a table on your own. Then you wait for them to call your name to pick up your food.  Ordered the Mr Smokey-our pulled pork with wonderfully smoked pineapple, fried onions, crispy bacon and heavenly bbq sauce on a soft bun. Would never thought to put pineapple on the sandwich but yum. The BBQ sauce was phenomenal, a little mustard but great flavor. A major plus was that the manager acutally came around to check on us several times which others noted a lack of follow up. More...

I've gotten to eaten here once, and I must say it's a great place to eat! The parking is usually in the back, however, if it is full you can park across from the restaurant. They have both inside and outside seating. The inside seating seems very relaxed and hipster. They also have a upstairs seating.The food has good quality and it seems fairly priced. I hope to come here again and post some pics of their food! More...

We've been coming here for years and it remains our go-to for great bbq!  I can't seem to branch out beyond the Fire Pig bbq wrap...  absolute perfection.

Always seems to be playing a great playlist too! More...

Yellow Dog Eats.......odd name, delicious food. I took my teenager here to celebrate an accomplishment and we could not get enough of our food. She had the Classic Yellow Dog sandwich and I had the Johnny Rocket Sandwich. They were well loaded and nicely balanced flavors in both. We shared both our sandwiches and neither disappointed. Now that's just the food. The customer service and ambiance made for a relaxed, fun time. Check it out the next time you're in Windermere. More...

A neat spot to grab a decent bite to eat. Most of the menu items seems to have twist ingredient wise. The salmon nachos with the sweet chili sauce is hard to beat. If you haven't been before just know that you order at the counter and then the food is brought to your table. The patio bar and seating is great and has an outside bar for an added plus. Seating is limited downstairs and outside, however there's overflow seating upstairs. If your into craft beers and food with a twist than this is the spot for you. More...

The salmon BLT is Amazing! I'm not even crazy about seafood but this item sounded so good on the menu...salmon, thick slices of bacon, and veggies on nice toasted bread. I swapped the aioli for a balsamic glaze/drizzle. Yummy!  It may be pretty packed on the weekend but don't let that deter you...it's worth the short wait. More...

I am so glad we ended up eating here. My whole family enjoyed their cleverly named meals and charming 70's themed atmosphere. My son had the Roast Malone sandwich, my husband had the Holy Crap sandwich, and I had the What the Fig (the two youngest had boring named food LOL) We all had some amazing pineapple cram soda from the machine; it tasted just like a dole whip! I highly recommend this restaurant. More...

Hope to return again. More...

I really enjoy the food and atmosphere here. I sat upstairs during a rainstorm watching and listening. It was awesome. The menu is quite extensive so you will need to give yourself time to look through it. The salads are good, I found the desserts to be lacking. They aren't bad, but I wouldn't make a special trip out there for dessert. Stick with the sandwiches, they are worth it. More...

Normally, we love this place. We’ve gone to other locations but tried NSB location tonight. We were a little let down with our food. We ordered Hummus, and slider appetizers with our other to-go order and I gotta say, they were way too spicy. The hummus was so hot you couldn’t enjoy it at all. The sliders were spicy as well and nowhere on the menu does it say spicy. It’s never been like that at other locations so we were a bit put off by it. Otherwise, the food is usually great! More...

Yellow Dog in NSB is consistently one of my favorite places to eat. I check the specials almost every day. Their happy hour is a fantastic deal ($3 Jai Lai... darn right!!) and the girls behind the bar are very friendly and cute as ever. I am a proud barbecue addict but Yellow Dog's vegetarian plates are some of the few that I genuinely enjoy. I couldn't recommend this place high enough. When I have visitors from out of town, this is one of the places I always take them and it's never a let down. 5/5 with or without rice. More...
