Restaurants which allow me to have a lunch out with my dogs have a special spot in my budget. Something I’m almost certain other dog owners would agree with.
Lucky for us, (slightly) crazy dog ladies and gentlemen, there are restos which do not only allow our dogs to stay with us while we eat, they go as far as making special menu items just for our furbabies. Check out 15 of these amazing, pet-friendly restaurants!
1. In ‘N’ Out

What they have: Treats
The pet-friendly Sonic Drive-In is set up so that you order and eat in your car or eat at their outside dining area. If you have your furbaby with you, Sonic will often bring your dog a treat so you won’t have to eat alone.
What they have: Puppuccino
It’s an espresso-shot-sized paper cup full of whip cream just for your doggy! But since some dogs are bothered by dairy, you probably shouldn’t give your dog this sugary treat every day. But for special occasions – go get your good boy/girl one!
Fun, Love and Craziness
