Before I dive in, let's lay some foundations that I'm sure everyone knows, but like the flight attendant going through the safety procedures, kindly give me your attention. All of these places ask that your dog is well-behaved, not barking or roaming and isn't aggressive to other dogs... Basically, make sure your 'kiddo' is actually ready for this experience.
Now that we have that out of the way, on to the fun stuff.
The following restaurants all have dog-friendly patios; some go above and beyond and offer water bowls, and even treats for your four-legged friend.
ChopShop Co., the local health foodie hotspot has a dog friendly patio! The patio also has some umbrellas/shade and some oversized lawn games for the humans of your group.
Murphy's Law Irish Pub
Want to get a pint with your pup by your side? Murphy's Law Irish Pub has a dog-friendly patio. Order up some fish and chips and enjoy.
Wimpy's Paradise offers house-made burgers that taste like a summertime barbecue. The meals are affordable, and dogs are welcomed at the outside seating.
Ice Cream Sammies:
Wanting to cool down with some ice cream? Ice Cream Sammies has a picturesque patio with white picnic tables, lawn games, and hanging lights. Bring that pup along because they have dog 'cookies' from Gryphen Speciality Products and Services, an organization who’s mission is to help train and employ adults within our community that have developmental disabilities.
Bring your dog and get some greens, because Crisp Greens allows dogs at their outdoor seating. Set a good example to your fur baby and get that serving of vegetables through their wraps, salads, sandwiches and juices.
Want to still enjoy a foodie lifestyle, but also with your dog? VB Lounge allows dogs on their patio and they'll provide water for your buddy. We recommend getting their pork belly 'lollipops' and funnel cake for dessert.
Another dog-friendly patio is Crust Chandler. Why not recreate the Lady and the Tramp scene with your furry friend? We promise no judgement.
It's Arizona, in the summer...it's hot. Cool down with your pup by heading to Paletas Betty. They sell paletas (a Mexican popsicle) and 'perroletas,' paletas for dogs that include a rawhide instead of a wooden stick. Plus, they also have water bowls.
La Stalla Cucina Rustica
Head over to the dog-friendly patio at La Stalla Cucina Rustica for some wine-ing and dine-ing.
SanTan Brewing Co.
Want to really spoil your pooch? Head on down to SanTan Brewing Co. to visit their dog friendly patios. They'll give your buddy a bowl of water and FREE spent grain peanut butter dog treats when you and your fellow roll-up.
