“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole,” Roger Caras once said. And to that we say amen. No matter what is going on in your everyday existence, you know your favorite four-legged companion will always be there for you. They jump for joy the second you pull into the driveway.
What better way to show your appreciation than by taking Sparky with you on your next adventure? Load up the car and hit the open road until the skyline of San Antonio flashes across your windshield. The downtown streets and happening Riverwalk district are great for gallivanting around with your trusty pooch. And after a long day, dog friendly hotels in San Antonio will be at the ready for you to kick your feet up…or paws, as it were.
What are the best restaurants in San Antonio for families with pets in tow?
When you’re gallivanting around this city with the whole family, you’re bound to get hungry. From Alamo Heights to the Riverwalk district, there’s no shortage of great places to sit down and grub at with the kids and Fido:
- Smokin Hot BBQ: You can’t come to Texas without digging into a massive plate of barbecued meat. Well, this joint located at 5115 Thousand Oaks Road serves up some of the best in Texas grilled meats. One combination bite of brisket, baked beans, and coleslaw and you’ll understand why this place made our list.
- Sanchos: Not too far away from amazing barbecue is amazing Mexican cuisine. The kids will enjoy the queso dip and quesadillas while the adults can dig into mango pork carnitas tacos and brisket enchiladas, all topped off with refreshing margaritas.
- The Hangar: At 8203 Broadway is a joint that serves some of the best burgers in town. You don’t believe us? Order a western burger that’s loaded with onion rings and smothered in tangy barbecue sauce. And if the kids get antsy, there’s games like giant Jenga to keep them occupied.
What is there to do in San Antonio at night?
When the sun says goodbye for the day, it’s time for some fun. Head back to the Riverwalk and belly up to the bar at Ranger Creek Brewing and Distillery. Locally know as a brewstillery, this place has been serving the San Antonio area for many years and now it’ll be serving you. After you and your pooch finish the tour, order a cold Ranger Creek dry hopped Berliner weisse and then wash it down with a glass of their Texas straight bourbon whiskey. When your night comes to a close, head back to one of our great pet friendly hotels in San Antonio like the Omni San Antonio Hotel at the Colonnade and curl up with your most loyal friend.
