Cliffdwellers love to dwell outside. Its why our favorite restaurants are the ones that have patios. Tatia Woldt and BK of the Dallas Morning News’ Dog About Town have helped us compile this list of Oak Cliff area venues that will glady welcome you and your furry friend.

Dog-friendly patios

* means they are city of Dallas-approved dog-friendly food establishments. The rules: Dogs must stay off furniture, be leashed and under control and wear a rabies tag. They cannot eat off the establishment’s dishes; they may be given water in a disposable container.
