One of the best moments in life is enjoying a cold drink and good food at your favorite restaurant, with your loving dog laying contently at your feet. We all love a restaurant with great patio dining that accommodates dogs. If you’re planning a fun day out, here are a few of the best dog-friendly patios in the Chino Hills-area.
This fast-casual restaurant has a signature style that’s pretty genius, delicious sandwich fixings placed between two toasty waffles! The fried chicken and waffle sandwich and the green eggs and ham sandwich are fan favorites. Doggers are welcome on the patio.
The Shoppes at Chino Hills, 13865 City Center Drive, Chino
This college town restaurant serves up gorgeous burgers with delicious toppings like fig, kimchi, and shoestring onions. The starters are to die for, especially the truffle fries. The patio is pet-friendly; staff will bring a bowl and water bottle for your pup.
580 W. First St., Claremont
This is the perfect casual spot to relax with cold drinks and comfort fare like meatloaf, pot roast and the requisite selection of burgers. You’ll also find some flavorful and fun accents, like Cajun fries and sweet potato tater tots with jalapeno aioli. Dogs are not only welcome on the patio, they also get a bowl of water and can choose from a special dog menu where you can order a chicken or hamburger patty mixed with brown rice.
11560 Fourth St., Rancho Cucamonga
It’s hard to picture a homier spot for a delicious brunch and conversation. Even better when you bring your dog, you can enjoy all three on the tree-shaded pooch patio joined with this converted, early 21st-century house. (If the morning is cool, the friendly servers will even break out the heaters and blankets.) Order from the dog menu and you and your dog’s weekend will be complete! Tip: On weekends, show up early, because the line will be out the door.
388 N. First Ave., Upland
Snack on some decadent duck fat popcorn and sip your cocktail while waiting for your buffalo burger. It’s the perfect place to adopt as your corner pub, the hole-in-the-wall joint you return to again and again. Even better: It’s located steps away from the Chino Hills Dog Park and has a special menu for Fido.
5771 Pine Ave., Chino Hills
Here’s a place where you can bring your beast-sized appetite (and bring home a doggy bag) because the portions are giant — good bang for your buck. The patio is pet-friendly.
