Stopped by the new restaurant, Blue Dog, when I was on my way to Pick up El Pollo Loco for the Family. The restaurant is in the same little strip center as El Pollo Loco, across from Whole Foods. The space has been deconstructed to expose the original framing from the 1940's. Hence the established 1940's painted on the door. When you walk in there is a bar with counters serving beers on taps, I'm not a big beer drinker, but it looked like a bunch of small name specialty craft beers. The menu consists of salads, Soups sandwiches, burgers and Pizzas and they have tv's showing the games. Nothing on the menu is more expensive than $12.99. While I have not eaten there yet the space is completely captivating and beautiful. It looks like a really great local spot. I look forward to trying it this weekend.
