As animal neurologists and pet lovers here in Mission Viejo, why know how important it is for our furry patients and their families to be able to go out to eat together! Bringing your dog out to a restaurant can be a special treat for them, as they’ll get to enjoy all the new sights and smells that the adventure has to offer. There are actually quite a few dog-friendly restaurants here in Mission Viejo! Some places offer doggy menus, while others simply allow dogs to hang out with their humans in the outdoor patio portion of their restaurant. Next time you’re hungry, grab your pup and head to one of these awesome local spots!
R.T.E. (Ready to Eat!) is an awesome and casual dining spot that serves up delicious “BBQ-on-a-Stick”. This is the perfect place to enjoy some skewers made with fresh, simple, local ingredients. This means your dog can enjoy a lot of your leftovers once you get home (if you’re willing to share, that is). Your dog can hang out with you while you eat!
If you’re a sports fan and a dog owner in Mission Viejo, you’ve got to check out High Park Tap House! They’re got 40 TVs set up so that you can keep up with your favorite sports game no matter where you’re sitting. They’ve also got a full bar that features over 70 craft beers and 32 taps, and your dog can watch the game with you while you enjoy time with friends or a sports game on the patio.
We know there is a lot of great Mexican food in southern California, but flavored tortillas are a little harder to come by! Cecilia’s Tortilla Grill is a family owned and operated Mexican restaurant that features freshly made corn and flour tortillas with flavors such as Jalapeño, Chipotle or Cilantro-Lime. Their unique tortillas are made in-house and contain no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. They make the perfect base for delicious tacos, burritos, and quesadillas! Your dog can sit with you on their patio!
Skimmer’s Panini Grill serves unique panini sandwiches made with fresh and high quality ingredients like locally baked artisan bread, Boar’s Head Brand deli meats, fresh vegetables, cheeses and their signature house-made spreads. Enjoy your delicious, crispy panini while you and your dog enjoy the fresh air on their patio!
The Poke Wave is another delicious local spot in Mission Viejo that you can bring your dog to! While they won’t have a doggy menu, your dog can be with you while you enjoy your meal in their outdoor eating area. Yum!
We hope that you and your dog get to enjoy at least one of these places in Mission Viejo before these long, warm summer days come to an end!
