Doggo knows you’ve been cookin’ up a storm making sourdough bread and other treats he’s not allowed to eat. (What do you think this is, hooman–The Great British Bake Off?) All this time in the kitchen means less time snuggling him on the couch, so take a break, grab your woof, and head to one of these Denver takeout restaurants that include dog menus.
1. Lazy Dog Restaurant
With two locations in the Denver metro, Lazy Dog features dog menus with pup-friendly burger patties, grilled chicken, and brown rice. Humans can treat themselves to an expansive menu of American fare. They also offer family dinners that serve 4 to 5 people, and vegetarian and gluten-sensitive options.
2. Watering Bowl
Does doggo need some exercise while you wait for takeout? Head to the Watering Bowl, which features a 7,000-square-foot, fully-fenced private dog park. Treat her to organic peanut butter and yogurt treats or pre-order a custom doggie cake. You can grab apps, wings, burgers, or brunch. Plus, there offer plenty of vegan and vegetarian options.
3. Ugly Dog Sports Cafe
This North Denver sports bar boasts an outdoor dog park and classic pub fare. We heard the build-your-own Chicago and New York-style hot dogs are yummy. Let your haute dog dine on signature bowls of eggs, bacon, and half-pound beef patties or good ol’ fashioned bacon.
4. Shake Shack
This classic burger joint in the heart of RiNo serves up a two-fur-one of drool-worthy eats and sweets. Your best fren will go mutts for their Pooch-ini dog sundae. Meanwhile, you can enjoy classic burgers and shakes. The classic cheeseburger topped with white cheddar, green chiles, and scallions is a must-try. Vegan options available.
5. Good Times
Feel guilty about eating fast food? The Colorado-based chain Good Times features all-natural, humanely-raised, antibiotic-free burgers and chicken. Canines’ll dig The PawBender: frozen custard topped with a biscuit and peanut butter. As a bonus, a portion of PawBender sales benefits the Dumb Friends League, Freedom Service Dogs of America, and the Larimer Humane Society.
