If you’ve just purchased one of the homes for sale among Dallas real estate and are in need of a meal out but don’t want to leave your four-legged best friend at home, you’re in luck.
The latest statistics by the US Census Bureau, as reported by Dallas News, show that North Texas (the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington core-based statistical area) had 13,763. With so many dining options, it’s not surprising that there are some great eateries that will let you bring your pet along, including these.
6. Garden Café
This restaurant is ideal for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike, and dogs are welcome on its gorgeous patio filled with greenery that looks as if it was pulled from a storybook. It offers dishes using locally-grown produce, including a variety of popular breakfast foods, soups and sandwiches.
5. Goodfriend Beer Garden and Burger House
One of the top spots in Dallas to watch the big game while enjoying the company of your canine, Goodfriend Beer Garden and Burger House offers cold beer with a wide selection of brews on tap along with pub grub like burgers, wings and sandwiches. Its patio is dog-friendly and water bowls are provided.
4. Cane Russo
Cane Russo was named after a dog and frequently hosts benefits for its dog rescue organization, so of course it caters to pet owners. Dogs are welcome on the patio and servers happily fill up water bowls for those in need of a drink. You can enjoy dining on Italian fare, including pizzas, pastas and sandwiches, though most recommend coming for the excellent appetizers and mouth watering desserts.
3. Mutts Canine Cantinas
After a long walk, there’s probably no better place to fuel up than Mutts Canine Cantinas – a dog park that has its own restaurant. Located in uptown, look forward to cold craft brews paired with a burger or an artisan hot dog while both you and your dog do some socializing. It even offers pools filled with ice so that Fido can cool off on a hot summer day. All kinds of fun events can be enjoyed too, from birthday parties for dogs to “Pup Pictures with Santa Paws” for the holidays.
2. Katy Trail Ice House
After a jog with your dog on the Katy Trail, you won’t want to miss the chance to get refueled and refreshed at the Katy Trail Ice House. It welcomes dogs to its beer garden and patio which makes for the perfect place to cool down after a workout. There’s plenty of water for your furry friend, and you can enjoy a chilled Texas draft with the amazing dark beer venison chili or a patty melt.
1. Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar
While not all restaurants with the word “dog” in their name are dog-friendly, this one not only welcomes dogs on its patio, but offers a dog menu that includes chicken, beef and brown rice, paired with a complimentary bowl of water. Humans will appreciate the diverse menu from pastas to sandwiches and just about everything in between – and, brunch is served on the weekend.
