Somebody Help This Poor Girl: Dog-Friendly Restaurants and Bars in Dallas

Dallas has a growing number of dog parks. Do we have dog-friendly restaurants? Name them.

Dallas has a growing number of dog parks. White Rock Lake, the first official dog park in Dallas, in undergoing renovations and will soon debut (if they haven’t already) a water launch. That’s right: humans can’t take a dip in the lake, but dogs can swim all day.

Catherine recently reported a story about Boo & Neo’s Gourmet Bakery. They ares selling “pupsicles” out of a mobile freezer on the corner of Woodall Rodgers and N Olive St. in Klyde Warren Park. She posted a picture of her another-successful rescue dog, Lola. Cute, right?

My dog Sydney (Hi, Becky!), a lab-catahoula mix, wouldn’t hit a lick at an all-natural, gluten-free bar of frozen bananas and peanut butter. She prefers free-range squirrels raised on Wild Birds Unlimited’s Supreme Blend Bird Seed.

I realize this is a long read to get to the question at hand, but SideDish loves dogs and any time we get a chance to post pictures or stories about our hounds, we will do so.

Here’s the real question:

I just moved here from New York, and I have two wire hair fox terriers. I saw the post about Klyde Warren Park so thank you for that. Do you have a list of dog-friendly restaurants? We like to take them with us whenever we can. Thanks.

Mutt’s Cantina and Vagabond are my haunts. Yours?

    “Dog-friendly patios
    Note: Dog-friendly dining is outdoors and can depend on several factors, including the weather, how busy the restaurant is and who is working. Call ahead if you need to know for sure whether they can accommodate you. Please send additions or changes [email protected].
    * means it is a city-approved dog-friendly patio. The rules: Dogs must stay off furniture, be leashed and under control and wear a rabies tag. They cannot eat off the establishment’s dishes; they may be given water in a disposable container.”

  • Bread Winners Cafe

    Bread Winners in Uptown and Henry’s Majestic both have dog-friendly patios.

  • Les Hall

    Most every bar and restaurant with a patio in N Oak Cliff is dog friendly. We love our dogs. Victor Hugo, Small Brewpub, Ten Bells Tavern, Bolsa, Nova to name a few.

  • D.Co

    The Lot in Lakewood has a big sand pit for dogs to run around in, and the patio is always full of dogs.

  • Rusty Shackleford

    BrainDead always has dogs out on the patio

  • AndrewAtDC

    I’ve found that most places with a patio will allow it. Toulouse, Katy Trail Ice House, Company Cafe (both Greenville and Katy Trail), The Lot, Sundown at the Granada, The Porch, Gin Mill, Barcadia, the list goes on …
