Covered patios?

Are there any bars or eateries in Austin with covered patios, where you can enjoy a rainy day while having a meal? If they are dog friendly, that would be even better!

  1. The Cedar Door downtown has at least a partially covered patio, and it's dog friendly. They also serve food, but I've never tried it.

      I can now calrify: there is a segment of patio (about 6 tables) with a roof, and when it rains, they have some protective vinyl screens to shield you from the water. Most of the patio is uncovered though.

    2. Guero's on South Congress has a small patio that allows dogs. Not the greatest Tex-Mex in town, but great people watching!

      1. Vin on Kirby Lane and Fino both have covered patios. Not sure on the dogs.

        1. These venues have al fresco dining or bar menu service:
          Don't know about the dogs, but I imagine this would be difficult at the better places.

          1. Sazon has a nice little covered patio, and pretty darn good chow.
