Here is a look at some restaurants around town that are not just dog friendly, they encourage you to bring your pooch.
Does Spot have a taste for tacos? Then look no further than Fusion Taco with locations downtown and in The Heights. If the tacos get you there, the margaritas will make you stay!
If Fido is into farm-to-table fare, then Dish Society might be a good choice. With locations in the Galleria and Katy and a new location coming to Memorial Green, it's a great, convenient option for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.
A spacious patio and some of the best barbecue in town combine to make it the perfect setting for a doggie date in Pearland. The free beer on the weekends doesn't hurt, either.
You don't get more dog friendly than a restaurant named after the owner's childhood pet. With salads well-suited for Texas-sized appetites and locations around the city, this is a perfect place to dine with your canine.
