Lost Dog Cafe

Hope everyone had a wonderful Superbowl Weekend. I know I had a great Sunday of eating delicious food and not paying attention to the game. Saturday was equally wonderful and lazy. I got to go watch one of my very good friends try on wedding dresses, and she looked gorgeous in all of them as well as finally getting to try Lost Dog Cafe in Arlington.

Some friends and I decided to do carryout for Lost Dog, but it smelled amazing inside, I would just be happy sitting there smelling the smells. Luckily my friend was willing to split a pizza and a sandwich with me so I got to try the best of both worlds. His only requirement that nothing include mushrooms or olives...perfect for me because I hate both.

We got a personal sized Spinach Feta Pie $10.95 which included tomato sauce, spinach and crispy bacon, feta and mozzarella cheese. This was good, but it was really salty. I chugged water like crazy Saturday night and all day Sunday.
Now onto the highlight, one of the best sandwiches I have had in awhile, the Irish Gryo $7.50 which had roast beef, feta cheese, garlic mayo, lettuce, tomato and green onions in pita. Everything was delicious about this sandwich, it made me sad that I had to share it.
My other friend ordered the California Dressing $7.50 with a whole wheat sub roll, lean spiced turkey breast, lettuce, tomatoes, alfalfa sprouts and guacamole. He also ordered a side of onions rings, or "Dog Collars" $3.95. He enjoyed both of his choices.
Last week I was able to sample a sandwich that my friend ordered, the San Diego $7.50 with fresh chicken salad or tuna salad, guacamole and crispy bacon with lettuce, tomato and mayo. I hated this sandwich...well the chicken salad part-it left a weird taste in my mouth, however my friend enjoyed it, so to each his own.

I am very excited I got to try this place, and I will be back. There are so many different sandwiches and pizza that need to be tried-it took be a good 15 minutes to decide what to order.

  1. Eating pizza does make me dehydrated also, which now makes want to find low salt cheese-not sure if it even exists.
    After seeing all of this, I think I favor the gyro the rest. Glad you enjoyed lunch out with your friends and I hope your friend found the dress she wanted. Have a great day!

  2. I adore trying out new restaurants. Even though I don't eat meat except chicken, both of these look fab. Glad you had a nice relaxing weekend...those are the best!
