Blackbeard’s BBQ – Ventura, CA

Jul 12, 11 Blackbeard’s BBQ – Ventura, CA

Restaurant Address: 1591 Spinnaker Dr. (Suite 115), Parking lot #3, Ventura, CA 93003

Good BBQ with live music. Choice of chicken, beef or pork. We ate on the patio, a raised platform with railing, with our Dobe. They brought her a water dish and kept coming back to check on all of us. This is the last restaurant in a complex, next to a large well kept park, so when we finished dinner we were able to take our dog out for a well earned run on the grass. Doggie poop bag stands were readily available throughout this complex, as well as trash bins.

Five Guys

Restaurant Address: 487 N. Moorpark Rd., Thousand Oaks, CA, 91360

About 2 weeks after they opened, I was dog-sitting a friend’s tibetan terrier and brought him along to Five Guys with me. I knew better than to bring him inside, but walked around to their outdoor patio around the side and none of the employees had a problem with him so long as he was on a leash.

Do be careful when you take your dog there, though. They have free peanuts available (allegedly not good for dogs to eat).
