Looking for casual non-chain restaurant near Bulldog Stadium --- Fresno

Help! Our group (6), four adults and two male high school seniors will be attending Sierra Cup Classic at the Bulldog Stadium next Saturday, Oct 30th. Looking for casual restaurant nearby with good food within walking distant of the Stadium if possible. Really don't want to move the car once parked. No chains please. We have time to eat between 4:30 - 7:30 pm. Any recomendations will be greatly appreciated.

  1. Non-chain within walking distance of Bulldog Stadium. That's a pretty tall order. I can only think of maybe two; Sushi and Pop, which I have not been to for a while and gets mixed reviews, and Fajita Fiesta, which I'm not sure if it's a local chain or not.

      Thank-you, unfortunately teenagers not into sushi and Fajita Fiesta a little to far

    2. Dog House Grill is on the E side of the campus and has outstanding BBQ and cold drinks. BJ's is a little W of the stadium. They have fine bar food and cold drinks.

      Dog House Grill @ 2789 E Shaw Avenue, Fresno, CA 559 - 294 - 9920.
      BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse @ 715 E. Shaw, Fresno, CA 559 - 570 - 1900.

        Thank-you, So far Dog House looks like something along the line of what we are looking for. It looks like it may be walkable. BJ's is to far. Open to more recomendations.

      2. Don Pepe on Woodrow/Shaw (about a 1/2 mile West of Dog House) for really good Mexican food (esp the camarones, al pastor, and lengua.

          gmk1322 beat me to it. Don Pepe's hands down. But it helps if you're a fan of marsicos..... Dog House is okay if you're looking for standard burger/fries/beer.

          And for the adults - order a beer - comes with a shrimp, salt and hot sauce at the top of the bottle. Cant beat it.

        2. How about right across the street?

          Tacos Marquitos
          (559) 447-5569
          1772 E Barstow Ave (NW corner at Cedar)

          Not your typical "gringofied student budget" type of place, even though the prices are quite reasonable given the quality. You'll find a few items not seen elsewhere in our City's myriad of choices for the cuisine, such as pambazos (sometimes called panbaso)

            I would definitely check out Doghouse Grill, they have really good burgers, fries and BBQ'd food there. A real fun place! :)

              Thank-you, gmk1322, tavmark, PolarBear and syrahgirl for your inputs. I'm incline to lean towards Tacos Marquitos but going to have to convince the boys (Doghouse). I really appreciate everyone inputs, so far.

                I will say that I was at Doghouse yesterday and if you go there, you have to order the tri tip sandwich. One will feed two people easily. I'm not usually a big tri tip fan but this is the best tri tip sandwich I've had in this area. An incredible amount of meat and very tender.
