Ditch The Kibble: Austin’s Best Dog Friendly Restaurants

Austin has many great things: the weather, the food, the plethora of music. But one of the greatest things is how much we love our pets. We can’t say for certain that Austin is constantly listed as one of the greatest places to live because we’re dog friendly, but it certainly can’t hurt. From our numerous dog parks to our pet friendly apartments, you can take your fur baby just about anywhere. To celebrate, ZippiVet has compiled a list of all the best dog friendly restaurants so your favorite companion can join you for some tasty cuisine. (Just don’t feed them any of the people food!)
