  • The Coolest Dog Friendly Restaurants Dallas Has to Offer

    by Andrew Borgschulte

    We’ve already covered the best dog parks in Dallas, so now let’s talk about some of the best dog-friendly restaurants the city has to offer. Luckily, patio weather in the DFW is nearly year-round, so there are plenty of chances to check out this cool spots with your pup.

    Parigi is a chef-driven bistro with a menu that changes twice a month.  They work hard to source much of their produce from local farmers, cheeses from small batch cheesemakers, and seafood from sustainable and responsible fishermen.

    On top of all that, owner Janice Provost was the one to campaign for dogs to be allowed on patios in the city, so without her, this list wouldn’t exist!

    MUTTS Canine Cantina

    One of the most unique dog-friendly restaurants Dallas has to offer, MUTTS Canine Cantina calls itself “the premier place to play with your best friends”. They are an off-leash dog park and restaurant that caters to both two-legged and four-legged friends alike. Their menu includes tons of tasty options for both humans and dogs.

    There is also an option to purchase a membership at MUTTS which includes:

    • Unlimited Dog Park Visits
    • Attendants Provide Water and Clean-Up
    • Upscale Dog Community
    • Exclusive / Early Access to Events and Promotions

    Goodfriend Beer Garden & Burger House

    Located right next to White Rock Lake dog park, this beer and burger joint is the perfect place on a summer day. The great patio will be a welcome place to recharge and enjoy some food and drink.

    Goodfriend offers an extensive American craft beer menu and has a selection of great standards along with special releases and seasonals. Natural grass-fed burgers (or sub a homemade veggie patty), classic sandwiches and homemade sides make up the equally fantastic food menu!

    Located directly across the street from Main Street Garden dog park, this local Mexican joint has great ambiance and even better food!

    Wild Salsa brings regional Mexican flavors to a menu ranging from à la carte street tacos to platos fuertes. All of their food is made from scratch each day, using locally sourced fresh ingredients, providing an experience unlike any other. Have a seat at the bar, and try a tequila flight, selecting from the more than 100 tequilas on their shelves.

    Cane Rosso

    Cane Rosso was born when owner Jay Jerrier visited Italy in 1995 for his honeymoon. A former corporate exec, he had an epiphany upon tasting his first true Italian pizza and knew that he had found something special. In addition to the Cane Rosso restaurants, in early 2014, Jerrier officially formed a dog rescue group, Cane Rosso Rescue, in order to fuel Jerrier’s passion to do all that is necessary to save the lives of abandoned dogs. More info about Cane Rosso Rescue can be found here.

    Cane Rosso’s fresh, never-frozen dough is made in-house every day, using all-natural “OO” flour imported from Italy. They also offer a selection of pastas, salads, sandwiches, and desserts.
