With a name like Austin Terrier, you'd expect that this family-friendly restaurant serving pizzas, sandwiches, salads and burgers would be dog-friendly. And you’d be right: Dogs enjoy the patio, free treats and freshly-filled water bowls while their companions enjoy craft beer, wines and the house favorite Trio of Fries: ultra-crispy sweet potato fries, truffle and Parmesan fries, and zesty paprika-and-mustard fries. The interior has a colorful, playful terrier motif and, best of all, Austin Terrier gives back to local dog charities.
Austin is consistently ranked one of the top dog-friendly cities in the nation, so it’s no wonder that there are plenty of fun Fido outings to choose from—including taking your best friend to one of the city's top dog-friendly restaurants. After exploring Austin's best parks and best hikes to get your pup some exercise, head to some of Austin's best restaurants that don't just accommodate four-legged friends, but put the welcome mat out for them, too.
