Dine out with your dog

Restaurants that welcome your pup are everywhere in Dallas - here's some of our favorites. Take your dog to the park, then get a table at one of these spots.

Cane Rosso

The restaurant is named after a dog, so there's no way they wouldn't be welcomed here. Head to the original location in Deep Ellum, grab a Neapolitan-style pie to enjoy and kick back with a beer.

Katy Trail Ice House

Located right off the Katy Trail in Uptown, the Ice House offers a giant patio that’s fitting for you, your dog and all your closest friends.

Mutts Canine Cantina

Mutts Canine Cantina in Uptown is a dog park with a restaurant – so it’s the best of both worlds! Grab a burger and shake for the humans and a doggie dessert for your pup.

Goodfriend Beer Garden and Burger House

The beautiful beer garden in East Dallas serves mouthwatering burgers that are arguably some of the best in Dallas. Grab a spot on the dog-friendly patio and take your pick on your favorite brew from their extensive list.

Trinity Cider

Deep Ellum’s best spot for cider comes with a healthy list of on-tap pours, along with a shaded patio to enjoy your pint.

Toller Patio

Your whole party will enjoy Toller Patio’s colorful patio and laidback style. And its menu doesn’t leave your dog out – get him/her a Pupsicle, a frozen peanut butter treat.

Taqueria La Ventana

Order up authentic street tacos from the counter service taco shop in Downtown Dallas. The patio offers comfy seating where dogs are welcome any time. While you’re here, download the Margarita Mile app – La Ventana is one of stops along Dallas’ most colorful experience.


The Oak Lawn location of this local favorite has a decent sized patio, so you and yours can catch a breeze alongside a Frito Pie.

Henry's Majestic

Your al fresco dining experience in Uptown comes with a fireplace on the patio (perfect for a chilly night) and some big screens to take in a game with your canine pal.

Trinity Groves

The majority of the restaurants in Trinity Groves offer spacious patio seating, and most are also covered. Take a seat at your choice of Mexican, vegan, burgers and others at this West Dallas favorite.

Local Oak

Stop by the Bishop Arts restaurant for weekday happy hour specials. Your furry friend can enjoy people watching while you indulge in some old school canned beers or craft cocktails.


Right in the heart of Downtown Dalla, JAXON offers a spacious patio and great views of the AT&T District.

Rodeo Goat

Tucked along the Trinity Strand Trail, this burger joint in the Design District has a great patio. Grab a seat, a beer and kick back on a sunny day.

Chelsea Corner

This Uptown neighborhood favorite offers an extensive menu and plenty of space to enjoy – its year-round patio is ideal for a family outing, and there’s even a kid’s menu to satisfy the little one’s appetite.


Another great stop along the Margarita Mile, Jose offers brilliant Jalisco, Mx. cuisine in a beautiful setting along Lovers Lane.

Las Palmas

Pups and Tex-Mex mix well, and Las Palmas is here to cater to both. Enjoy a big bowl of Las Palma’s white queso dip next to a refreshing frozen margarita, and don’t forget about Happy Hour (daily 2-7 p.m.).

Gloria's Latin Cuisine (Bishop Arts)

Set in a former firehouse along Davis Avenue, this Bishop Arts staple is perfect for a family outing. Grab a table on the shaded patio and enjoy people watching in the neighborhood.

Terry Black's BBQ

Leave the pup with a friend on the patio while you man the food line inside – you’ll start at the sides bar, then head to the main counter to make your meat selections. Head back outside and enjoy some of the best barbeque in town!

Matt's Rancho Martinez

Get your Bob Armstrong dip with the pup in tow. The restaurant’s patio is small but provides plenty of shade for everyone in your party.
