September 02, 15


Do you hate leaving your precious pooch behind when you go out for lunch? There are several places in town that let you bring Fido, as long as he’s leashed and friendly. Here are some of the best pet-friendly restaurants near Springs Apartments.

Snookies Malt Shop
1810 Beaver Avenue

Called the "best place to bring your puppy for a sweet treat," Snookies is a locally owned sweet shop and an area tradition. Take time for a visit to this quaint shop brimming with old-fashioned charm and get a cone for both you and your furry friend. Snookies regularly shares photos of happy dogs enjoying their puppy cones on its Facebook page.

Jason's Deli
3910 University Avenue

This deli prides itself on serving meals made from fresh, natural ingredients. They also take care to offer sandwiches and other menu items that are vegetarian and gluten-free. Your dog can join you at the outside dining area while you enjoy a Caprese Panini with fresh basil and tomato or the New Orleans Muffaletta.

Panera Bread
2839 86th Street, Urbandale

This nationwide sandwich shop lets your four-legged friend join you at its outside tables. There is also free Wi-Fi available, so you can munch away, check your Facebook feed and scratch your dog's ears all at the same time. Just don't fall for those sad, brown eyes begging you to share your broccoli and cheddar soup in a bread bowl.

1551 Valley W. Drive, Suite 224

For great Mexican grub with dog-friendly outside dining, Chipotle at the Valley Mall should be your destination. Let Fido settle in for a nap under the table on the patio while you dig into one of Chipotle's fantastic burritos stuffed full of fresh ingredients.

So, when lunchtime rolls around, you don't have to close the door on your dog's sad face. Grab the leash and take her with you to one of these fun places that loves dogs almost as much as you do.
