Dining with Dogs in Metro Phoenix AZ April 2017


“I’m off to Tru Burger in Peoria AZ”

Dining with Dogs is just a “Fluff” Storyand not a full blown restaurant review that’s about taking my dogs out to eat. Most restaurant in Metro Phoenix do have patios but not all restaurant patios are dog friendly. It’s always best to call a restaurant the day of your visit and and ask if its ok to bring your furry friend to dine there. It is also suggested to dine at off times to avoid a bigger crowd of people that might include people with allergies or dog haters. There are some rules to live by with dining with dogs. Dogs are to stay close to you. Dogs are NOT to sit on restaurant furniture. Dogs are also not to eat off of restaurant plates. It’s important that you are aware of the dog friendly food list. Basically most foods you eat are not healthy or possibly TOXIC to your dog. Your usually safe feeding your dog sauce free plain piece of meat. You know that’s what your dog wants anyway….a few of the foods to avoid are anything related to a grape, onions, garlic, chocolate, avocado (some veterinarians do disagree with avocado) bread, alcohol and more.

We went to Tru Burger in Peoria AZ. This is a casual Build your own burger place and more. You have your choice of style of burger, type of patty, sauces, toppings and side.

Tru Burger is very DOG FRIENDLY and even has a special gate on the patio just for people with dogs. The patio is nice and comfortable with a relaxing blue color scheme.

We started with an appetizer of Green Bean Fries.

“Oh I Forking Like Green Beans when they are fried!”

The Green Beans were sort of addicting but very substantial and came with a mild but tasty creamy wasabi sauce.

I had the Lettuce Wrapped Salmon “Burger” with guacamole, tomato, onion, Habanero sauce (on the side) and Onion Rings.

Salmon is seasoned nicely and is juicy. I’m able to cut off a good slice without avocado for my furry friend.

“I LOVE when restaurants serve me my own water…but I love eating better.”

Onion rings are really tasty and that habanero sauce is REALLY HOT but tasty!

My husband had the Grass Fed Green Chili Burger with Fries. It’s a really big burger! Our waitress said it was a half pound patty! My husband said the burger was a good tasting burger and the chili was also a good tasting one.



I’m on my way to Banh Mi Bistro Vietnamese Eatery in Phoenix AZ

Banh Mi Bistro Vietnamese Eatery specializes in the Vietnamese Baguette Sandwich called the Banh Mi. This Vietnamese Restaurant is Pho Free. You can’t get a bowl of Pho here. They now offer around eleven varieties and also offer various appetizers, salads, noodle bowls, rice plates and more!

I decided to try a new menu item. The Chicken Curry with my choice of rice or bread. I’ve had Chicken curry from other Asian Restaurants but only one time before from a Vietnamese Restaurant. At B.M.B.V.E. I got a generous portion of tender tasty chicken with fresh carrots and potatoes. The sauce is light, thin and very fragrant with lemongrass. I like the lighter more fragrant sauce.


Our furry friend got to try some of my husband’s Shaking Beef from his Banh Mi Sandwich.

“Everything I tried from Banh Mi Bistro Vietnamese Eatery was so delicious!” ” Both the chicken and Steak were so tender and flavorful. I’m a big fan of both!” ” I do well every time I visit!”


“I’m off to Salad and Go in Phoenix AZ”

Salad and Go is a Drive Threw Eatery with several locations in Metro Phoenix AZ. They serve about a dozen varieties of gourmet salads, breakfast, wraps, smoothies and child’s meals. Salad and Go is very Dog Friendly and Dog Patrons are served complimentary Dog Biscuits.

Today I went with a Southwest Style Caesar Salad.

I got a big bowl of fresh crisp romaine, garbanzo beans, tortilla strips, added flavorful tender chicken that was tossed in a poblano pepper dressing.

My husband got a seasonal special salad with seasonal Chicken Corn Chowder Soup.

Someone thought the Italian Salad gave off an appetizing aroma.

“I’m a big fan of Salad and Go!”


We are proud to announce a new member that we hope to be a part of the Dining with Dogs team.

He is only pint sized but has a great big appetite. But for now he is young and very rambunctious. I don’t know how long it will take to get him dining with dogs ready.

That was Dining with Dogs for April 2017

We hope to see you next month!
