Both my husband and I ordered a hot dog with sauerkraut. The best part about it was the toasted bun. The dog was very salty and the kraut was minimal and tasteless. We were not impressed.

Sorry you were UNIMPRESSED with our Hot Dogs. We have won 1st place for our Dogs and to say our Kraut was tasteless is questionable to me. But every person has different tastes. Blessings to you. ..

We had been to the old location, and finally got to stop at the new one. When you go somewhere named The Dog House, you really should get dogs. They have a very extensive menu, but I can't get past the dogs. The place is...More

This is our first time here since they moved. The 1/2 rack of ribs (juicy and fell off the bone)and the grilled fish were both great. Service was sloow but when I commented we were told that an employee went home sick...

Is the Dog House a place to buy a hotdog or a place welcoming of dogs? Yes! Should it rank #1 in Ruskin? Heck yeah! Trip Advisor never steers me wrong. This food truck, tiki place serves awesome ribs, seafood and tacos. The sides are...More

This was a fun roadside food truck / tiki hut with a great staff. They were dedicated and friendly. We had the pulled pork and beef brisket. Wasn't bad for a road sit set-up. We enjoyed sitting outside and watching the sunset enjoying a meal.

We pride ourselves on making everything fresh to order. We make homemade Chili, Chowder, Baked Beans, Coleslaw, Mango Salsa, BBQ Sauces (Sweet, Spicy and White!), Chipotle Mayo, Burgers, Tartar Sauce, Cocktail Sauce, Cajun Sauce...In other words - FRESH INGREDIENTS = AWESOME FOOD! We have our own large smoker which we daily use to smoke our Baby Back Ribs, Whole Chickens, Brisket and Boston Butts (for our Pulled Pork). Our seafood is delivered to us twice a week including Clams from Ipswich, Mass (Whole Bellies and Strips), Lobster Meat from Maine, Gulf Grouper & Shrimp!
