Let’s be real: all of Austin is luckily dog-friendly. However, there are certain bars and restaurants that cater to dogs more than others. To highlight those, Eater put together this handy guide to Austin’s best dog-friendly spots in the city.

This includes beer gardens with dog parks and sausages from Banger’s Sausage House, places offering canine treats like campus bar Crown & Anchor, and the city’s very own dog park/restaurant/bar with dog minders, Yard Bar.

For more outdoor spaces, check out Austin’s essential patios and beer gardens.
