Here in Texarkana, Arkansas, we’re not afraid to let the city go to the dogs. We’ve got plenty of parks that are dog-friendly, but you may not know that we also have several restaurants in the city with dog-friendly patios. Here are some restaurants on our side of the state line that we like to frequent with our pups!
