What’s better than eating good food on a beautiful patio in nice weather? Eating good food on a beautiful patio in nice weather with your dog. Granted, this time of year might not be known as our period of “nice weather,” but save this article for future reference.

If you didn’t know, many of your favorite Tucson restaurants will allow you to dine with your furry friend. Most restaurants provide bowls of fresh water for your pup, and your dog will probably be greeted with lots of hugs, kisses, and maybe even a homemade dog biscuit.

And if biscuits aren’t enough, one restaurant offers a complete dog menu.

Below are 69 dog friendly restaurants in Tucson — because nothing’s better than dining with man’s (and woman’s) best friend.

    Here’s a photo of Jetty Spaghetti eating his “Buried Treasure” at Delectables. He loved going there. His lunch often cost more than mine. Sweet memories. Great article.

  • Erik Shapiro

    Did you know that dogs always drink for free at Zinman’s Food Shop?

  • Emily

    I’ve taken my dog to sauce on Campbell and was told that only service dogs are allowed and that my dog would have to stay on the outside of the patio.

    • Emily

      Maybe only the location on Broadway is dog friendly

    • Interesting. We’ll look into it.

  • Certaintroublemaker

    The go-to spot when my best friend brings my “niece” out with us is Beyond Bread at Speedway and Wilmot—plenty of patio seating. I know the BB on Campbell has patio seating, too.

  • Connie Laeuter

    Montgomery’s in Vail also has a dog friendly patio

  • Greg

    On the NW side visit Noble Hops at 1335 W Lambert Ln. for good food, grog, and plenty of 4 legged friends. The patio is large and either covered or generally sheltered from the direct sun. Water always provided for the animals upon request and generally they just automatically bring it.

  • Jackie

    Pionic Pizza on Campbell has an outdoor patio that is dog friendly. And they’ll bring out a bowl of water for your pup!

  • Brian Cornelius

    Crispy’s on FT.Lowell also has a patio where Conan and I have a delicious fish and chips.

  • wandering commenter

    I work at Panera and people bring their dogs to sit out on the patio all the time, we even have dog bowls for water that we give to them during their visit 🙂
