Pet-Friendly Perks: Explore Dog-Friendly Spots

March 14, 2024 3:24 pm

Celina is a haven for pet lovers and foodies alike, so lash up your furry pals and head out to eat, drink, and have a great time! More and more restaurants, breweries, and entertainment spots welcome every family member, furry or not, so you have lots of choices now that the weather is perfect for getting out and about.


Bongo Beaux’s


Let the good times roll for you and your best furry friend at Bongo Beaux’s Bourré Palace & Cajun Kitchen. But what exactly is a bourré palace? In Cajun slang, bourré means drinking (and having a good time doing it). So you can fill up on jambalaya, gumbo, étouffée, po’boys, crawfish, and shrimp and wash it down with a New Orleans-style hurricane. They have inside and outside seating, so the weather won’t be a problem any time of year.


Tender Smokehouse


The smells at Tender Smokehouse may make both you and your dog drool, but you’re family there, so nobody’s gonna judge. When you arrive, the building may look familiar since it resembles an Old West fort, and you may have read about head pitmaster Dante Ramirez in Texas Monthly. But the food is the real star! Like the El Jefe—brisket, pork, sausage, and BBQ beans covered in their award-winning sauce sandwiched between Texas toast and topped with ribs, pineapple slaw, and Frito pie.


Toasted Walnut


For something completely different, take your puppy pal to the Toasted Walnut Table and Market for a foodie-style meal. You could start with an eloté or hot pimento cheese dip, then munch on a Greek or chicken and avocado salad, and finish with a Wagyu burger for lunch or grilled pork ribeye chop for dinner. They also have gluten-free choices and a kids’ menu for picky eaters. Plus, you can order a plain hamburger patty for your fur baby.


Little Wooden Penguin


If you want to hang out and grab a cold one or sip one while you putt-putt 18 holes, take your doggie to the Little Wooden Penguin. You can choose from fun drinks on tap like Muffindiculous, a Russian Imperial Stout, and Skill Check pear cider fermented in Dallas. They also have hard seltzers and popular brews like Shiner Bock and Blood & Honey. Or if wine’s your thing, sip on Way of the Bushido Sake, Tinto Negro Malbec, Joel Gott Cabernet Sauvignon, and more.


Rollertown Beerworks


There’s a lot to do while you enjoy a drink and munchies at Rollertown Beerworks, or take a beer to go while you walk your furry friend. You can hang out at the bar or picnic tables, play cornhole, grab a bite from a food truck like American Gothic Pizza or Jazzy’s Tacos, and check out on-site vendors for shaved ice, Boots+Roots clothing, and permanent jewelry. As for drinks, you can choose local beers, wines, bourbon, and vodka cocktails, frozen concoctions, mocktails, and real-sugar sodas.

You’ll be close enough to take your pup around town anytime when you live at Green Meadows. Or stay here and play in our dog park, green spaces, and beautiful trails. Contact us today to find your new family home.
