Hey guys! Welcome to the Austin Food Blogger Alliance's 2015 City Guide for Austin! We've come together to bring you the best of the best in Austin! My first category is for Austin's much-loved canine population... and their owners, of course ;)
What do you do when you have a codependent pooch that misses you so much during the work week, that you can't bear to be apart with her on evenings and weekends? When you live in one of the most dog-friendly cities around, the answer is simple: take her to dinner with you. Heck, take her to Happy Hour, or drinks with friends, or one of the many dog-centric events that are always popping up!
Best Dog-Friendly Venues in Austin
Moontower Saloon-Guys, I saw a freaking MONKEY here once, just hanging out on a dude's shoulder. If monkeys are okay, then you best believe that most furry friends are going to be welcome here. There are a variety of dog-centric events (like frequent "Puppy Paloozas") plus, the 11 acre outdoor area is perfect for playing frisbee with your pooch. Though Moontower Saloon is technically a bar, their backyard is basically a food trailer park where multiple eats are offered. My go-to are the Lugnuts from Triple Wide: bacon-wrapped pepper jack cheese that's been deep fried and served with jalapeno ranch, and the pizza from Armadillo Flats is pretty decent as well. Moontower Saloon is open 11am-2am every day, noon-2am Sunday and is located at 10212 Manchaca Road in South Austin.
Dog House Drinkery-There are so many places in town where you can bring your dog fee-free, so I haven't yet ventured to Dog House Drinkery, plus it's not technically in Austin (it's located in Leander). However, friends tell me it's an awesome time. And I couldn't very well leave the Austin-area's only truly completely dog-centric bar off my list (though Yard Bar is opening this summer, keep an eye out). The daily fee is $5, but memberships are available that give you a bit of a discount if you plan on drinking with your dog often. Humans can grab some beer and food from the bar, and dogs can enjoy a fenced-in dog park.
