The Dog House Grill is Fresno’s go to spot for burgers and barbecue: try the ABC, or the ‘Avocado, Bacon, and Jack Cheese.’ Beyond burgers, Dog House serves BBQ classics like tri-tip, pork ribs, and grilled chicken. We recommend trying one of their special sandwiches like the Craggier, a grilled chicken sandwich served with lots of veggies, BBQ sauce, and melted jack cheese.

For your entree, try the lobster tail or the pan seared scallops and crab cake combo.
