Pet Friendly Firehouse Grill  in Evanston, IL
Let your pooch get in touch with his inner dalmation at this pet-friendly restaurant located in a renovated and repurposed fire station. You and your best bud can enjoy the pub-style menu on their outdoor patio. Of course for starters we like the Mini Chili Cheese Char Dogs but their Disco Fries, topped with pulled pork, chili con queso, and jalapenos are also awesome (and almost dinner in itself!). They’ve also got hearty sandwiches and burgers, and Detroit-style pan pizza with multiple different toppings to choose from. There is brunch on the weekends with great selections like Pepper and Egg Bagel Club and Blueberry Waffles. Open Monday 4:30 to 10 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 11 p.m., Sunday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
