Looking for a treat? Step up to the window and satisfy your sweet tooth.
By Carla Turchetti
What do you do when you're ready for a bite to eat but you don’t want to leave your best four-legged friend home alone? Head to one of Western Wake’s pet-friendly restaurant patios. The state of North Carolina has a few rules about Fido dining al fresco. Your dog must be outside the restaurant on a patio and not inside the dining room. Your dog should be leashed, and can’t come into contact with employees preparing food or service items. (So don’t put your plate on the ground and let Spot lick the final few morsels of peanut butter pie that the server will clear and take into the kitchen.) The rules are different for breweries with inside and outside areas. Dogs can wander in or out as long as all of the food and snacks that are being served are sealed in disposable wrappers.
