Forking Dining Out with DOGS March 2016

On our way to Humble Pie Glendale AZ

On our way to Humble Pie Glendale AZ

Dining with dogs is not full blown reviews on restaurants. It’s a little more than a fluff story of dining with dogs. I note that not all outside restaurant patios are dog friendly. There are some rules with dining with dogs. Dogs are not to sit on the furniture or to eat off plates. Also most of the food you eat isn’t safe for dogs to eat and you must review a current list of safe foods for dogs to eat.

We went back to Humble Pie in Glendale AZ and enjoyed the close comfortable dog friendly patio.

Humble Pie is a small local chain with several locations in the valley. They offer fresh made wood fired pizzas with house made cheese, soups, salads, and sandwiches.

I was going to order something different from last time but went with the $10.99 lunch special (1/2 salad and individual pizza) because I enjoyed it last time.


I started with the strawberry and gorgonzola salad. The greens were fresh and the rest was tasty. I’m still surprised that such a nice salad like this comes with the pizza because in many places in Scottsdale a similar salad might cost what this total lunch forking cost.

Soon our pizzas arrive.


I had the margarita pizza. The crust was light and crisp and had nutty corn meal or semolina flour baked on the bottom. The tomato seemed fresh, the cheese was milky and I liked all that fresh basil on the pizza.

Both dogs are interested in the pizzas.

Next we are off to A Taste of Buffalo in Glendale AZ

A Taste of Buffalo is a small casual order at the counter kind of place that isn’t fancy. They specialize in certain foods that you can rarely find outside of Buffalo New York such as New York Hot Dogs and New York Wings. The Specialty of the house is the sandwich called Beef on Weck.


It’s tasty beef in a dipped roll in au jus. The bun is a unique hard kind of kaiser bun called kummel weck roll that is topped with course salt and caraway seeds. This sandwich is also always served with horseradish.

We usually come for the beef on Weck sandwiches but have tried many other of the other items. The last time we were here we noticed the new tables outside and we asked if we could bring our dogs next time. The owner gave us the ok so here we are again.


Today I tried their new battered haddock sandwich. It’s humungous and can certainly feed two people. The fish was battered in house and is tasty with the fresh slaw topping but the roll is slightly too big and sturdy for this sandwich so I saved one half to eat another day.

Dogs are interested.

"We're off to Cecina Tagliani in Glendale AZ"

“We’re off to Cucina Tagliani in Glendale AZ”

We’re back to Cucina Tagliani in Glendale AZ. This is a family friendly independently owned American/Italian Restaurant that’s been in business for over twenty years. Everything in house is house made even the salad dressings.

The 14 3/4 year old dog is so happy we picked this restaurant for dinner.


We had some problems with the 3 1/2 year old.


Repair men were working on the patio and they frightened the 3 1/2 year old and she stayed like this most of the time. Look at that face. Just like a little kid.

I had the Grilled Chicken Parmesan over spaghetti squash.


I love sliding the cheese off on to the squash and on to the garlic toast making it into like a slice of pizza. The sauce is one note but very fresh tasting with the correct amount of sweetness. Chicken is moist and basic and good to share with the dogs.

Degrees during the day are close to 90 degrees F in Phoenix AZ. Not sure how much more dining with dogs we’ll do this year.

We hope to Forking do a Bunch More!

That was Forking  Dining Out with Dogs for March 2016.
