In recent years, Albuquerque has received a lot of recognition for being a top pet-friendly city. And if you're anything like me, you want to take your pets with you everywhere you go!

Kelly's Brew Pub
Located on Central Avenue, Kelly's Brew Pub has a spacious outdoor patio that is always welcome to pets. Kelly's brews their own beer and has an American cuisine based menu. If you accidentally drop a fry I'm sure your pooch will be more than happy to take care of it for you!
