There are times that we just wish we could have our pups tag along when we go to restaurants; however, it can sometimes be difficult, especially when there is no space at local restaurants for them to enjoy eating out along with you.
Luckily, Plano and neighboring cities have got some restaurants that offer you and your furry best friend a warm welcome.
With Spring just around the corner and the weather warming up, it is about time to venture out and many restaurants with great patios are dog-friendly, just in time for Happy Hour.
So leash that Fido, and let’s go dining out with your dog!
