The Fat Dog

I don't get over to Hollywood very much, but I'm so glad I got turned on to The Fat Dog. We went for happy hour and dinner and I was WOW'ed by the food. Sooo good!

The Fat Dog's happy hour is daily 4-7pm and offers a $3 beers, $4 wine, $5 well drinks, and $3 Shot of the Day. But the food (which runs $3-6) was real the star of the show.

Since we were having dinner, we only ordered 4 appetizers (see below) off the happy hour menu. And yes, we got four appetizers for two people. What I can say??? We were hungry!! hehehe. The Sweet Potato Fries and cheese plate were fine and dandy, but the Swedish meatballs and the Potato Skins were out of this world! The Swedish Meatballs were the best I have ever had and the Potato Skins were stuffed with crab, bacon, and asparagus and topped with Hollandaise sauce. YUM. The next time I go in, I might even just order those two items and make that my dinner.

Sweet Potato Fries - $3

A Cheese Bite - $5

Swedish Meatballs - $5

Potato Skins - $6

Happy Hour Food Menu

For happy hour drinks, Fat Dog offers $3 cider and beers, a $3 shot of the day, $4 wine, and $5 well drinks. I ordered the Shot of the Day plus a drink off their cocktail list, The Mutt (not happy hour), which contained Rye Whiskey, Absinthe (love), simple syrup, Peychaud's and lemon. My second drink was The Fat Mary (Bloody Mary). I love Bloody Marys and this one made me quite happy. My friend got the Tailwagger (Stoli Raspberry, sour, Triplesec, and lemon).

(L-R) The Mutt $11, The Tailwagger $9, 
and the Shot of the Day (Pink Lemonade) $3

Fat Mary $9 (not on HH)

Happy Hour Drink Menu

Their signature cocktails aren't discounted for happy hour, but here's the menu just in case you were interested.

Now you would think two people sharing 4 appetizers would be sufficient but since I'm a little piggy piggy food connoisseur, we ordered dinner too. And thank god we did because it was sooooo good. We started with the Jalapeno Mac and Cheese and it was made to perfection. Perfect amount of jalepeno and the cheese blend was spot on! My friend got the French Dip Sandwich (which was really good) but I got the Roasted Organic Chicken which was UH-MAZING!!! I swear I think they put crack in it or something. It's THAT good. Now this stuff isn't on happy hour, but you have to try the Mac and Cheese and the chicken. You won't be disappointed.

Jalapeno Mac and Cheese - $9 (Not on HH)

Braised Short-Rib French Dip 
$14 (Not on HH)

Roasted Mary's Farm Organic Chicken 
$18 (Not on HH)

So Fat Dog definitely gets my stamp of approval. And if you are ever in the Montrose area, you should check out The Fat Dog there.
