Lazy Dog is not a dog

What do you get when you allow dogs to eat at your restaurant? You get a lot of people bringing their dogs and sitting outside on their enclosed patio. You get a menu for the dog and a water bowl. Great concept for those people who consider their dogs to be their kids and cannot seem to go anywhere without them.

It is also a great concept for a restaurant that serves damn good food. From the bacon candy to the deviled eggs. From the grilled cheese sandwiches with sweet potato tater tots to the bowls of chicken, beef or tofu and a choice of three different sauces over rice, they have figured it out. Their burgers are awesome. Actually everything I have tried so far has been really good.

While they have had to limit the number of seats due to the pandemic, they have figured out how to work with it. You walk in, give them your name and cell phone number and go sit outside (or in your car) for a text. No standing around in the lobby area or bar anymore. Got to do that social distancing thing.

They have a very extensive bar and the bartenders are very friendly and will not be shy to recommend something to go with your meal. They also make a mean margarita according to a few people I talked to last time I was at the bar.

They do have take out and curbside service so if you are not ready to mingle with other people yet, you can always go that route.

For a national chain, they feel like a local place.
