Sit. Stay. Taco Tuesday! Sure, the first two come naturally, but it takes time and practice to learn how to Taco Tuesday right. As a dog parent, it is your obligation to teach ‘em young. To make this a woofing breeze for you, we’ve compiled some of the best dog-friendly places to relax with pupper by your side as you drink that marg, pound those tacos, and revel in the most glorious day of the week.

Rockfish tacos, salmon tacos, and mushroom tacos join traditional chicken and shrimp tacos for a menu that’ll rock your spots off. The patio has incredible views of the water that every refined pupperito can appreciate.
La Cocina Oaxaqueña
Simple, but superb is the motto of La Cocina Oaxaqueña. With only five options on its taco menu, this pawthentic Southern Mexican restaurant focuses on fresh ingredients and basic pairings that tell a tail of their own. The patio is pup-friendly, and happy hour comes twice a day, Monday through Saturday.
Okay, okay, we know it’s a pub. But hear us out! Flatstick Pub in Pioneer Square has partnered with Manu’s Tacos to offer their fan-woofing-tastic street-style guisado tacos right inside the pub. It offers all-braised meat or veggie tacos on double corn tortillas and topped with unique garnishes sure to make pup’s mouth water. Tee off at the indoor mini-golf course, grab a cerveza, and get you some tacos, dawg.
Tucked in Post Alley by Pike Place Market, Los Agaves is a casual spot with a flavor-packed menu we could taco bout fur days. Juicy meats like carne asada and pollo fill the tortillas with garnishes like cilantro, guacamole and onion. For gluten-free peeps, the Los Agaves Taco Bowl is sure to hit the spot. Good doggos will loves pawrusing the alley while their hoomans munch on tail-wagging good bites.

Nestled in the heart of Amazon country, La Palmera Family Restaurant is your go-to joint for street tacos done right. Served on fresh handmade corn tortillas, these are tacos that every mutt will enjoy. While enjoying the mutt-friendly patio, try the Chile Colorado or Pork Carnitas for a little spice, and make sure pup has plenty of water on hand in case some of those juicy bits make their way into their mouf.
