Top 10 Pawsome Restaurant Patios To Take Your Dog in Dallas/Fort Worth

At Elle Belle, we are ALL ABOUT Dog Moms and promoting a dog friendly lifestyle! So we put together a list of the top 10 "Pawsome" restaurant patios to take your fur baby.

1. Mutts Canine Cantina

It's an obligation that we put this on the list. Mutts Cantina is both a free range dog park, bar, and walk up restaurant. They have locations in Dallas and Fort Worth. Until more mainstream restaurants join the "pawty" we are totally here for this.

2. Lazy Dog

This place is pretty cool! We love the name, the logo, the dog-friendly patio, AND the dog food on the menu! It helps that the human food is superb too!

3. Rock & Brews

Rock & Brews in the Colony is the ultimate dog patio destination. There are outdoor heaters and enclosed temporary walls in the patio to keep you warm even in the winter months. Plus, there are fire pits! They have an incredible selection on their dog menu that your pup will go crazy for. There are often other dogs and their parents dining here, so you're likely to make friends! We highly recommend this restaurant for great music, rock and roll vibes, and a great time with your bestie!


Get outside with your pup in this pawsome beer garden. With live music, a bar made out of an Airstream trailer, and a constant flow food trucks, this unique assortment of bars is a destination just off Greenville Ave. in Dallas and in The Colony.


This super amazing burger joint is not shy of their canine visitors on the patio! Enjoy your cajun style fries with Girl's Best Friend by your side.

6. Katy Trail Ice House

This place is kind of Doggy Heaven for us. You get to bring your dog AND have the chance to pet so many of your dog's new friends they'll make. Dogs of all breeds and sizes show up to this place, you'd think you were in a cheesy doggy film where the talking dogs of Uptown get together to gossip. This place is so much fun for the people and dog watching! Get in a nice walk on the Katy Trail and then check this place out next time you're in Uptown.

7. Torchy's Tacos

This Austin favorite has dog friendly patios at all of their locations. Be sure to order a Trailer Park, Trashy and get your fur baby a side order of chopped beef!

8. In-N-Out Burger

Here's the key: For a one on one In-N-Out date with just you and your fur babe, go through the drive through, and then park and sit on the patio! They have a secret menu item for dogs called the pup patty. It's an unsalted patty that's perfectly healthy for dogs and only $1! Your dog will go nuts for this treat!

9. Boomer Jack's

We love this place and their locations. They have a lot of outdoor space for humans and pets. Snuggle up with your cuddle bug by a warm lit fire and enjoy the atmosphere. This place is a must go with your dog!


At The Shacks, six restaurants sit half a story up as one large, dog-friendly patio

overlooking a beautiful and clean 1-acre dog park. We have personally frequented this dog park and the dogs and their parents are always on their best behavior here, especially during less busy weekdays.

There’s a diverse group of dining options for humans with Ten Ramen, Turbo Coffee, Grrrowlers, Dirty Burger, Tackle Box and OMG Tacos. Just across the street are two more dog friendly patios at a cajun seafood restaurant, Bourbon Street, and a bbq restaurant with the greatest chili you will ever taste, Barrell & Bones. Enjoy beer and food at The Shacks or head over to one of these two patios after your dogs tire themselves out at the park.
