Dog Walking in Hillside

The city of Hillside, Illinois is located in Cook County. This is a fairly small city, but it has a lot of history. Al Capone, the famous gangster from the 1930s, is buried in a cemetery in Hillside. His burial site has become a tourist attraction throughout the years.

There are two great restaurants where you and your canine friend to enjoy a meal together here. The first is Buona Beef, which is known for its original Italian beef. This Fido-friendly eatery has 11 outdoor tables where you and your pooch are more than welcome to share a meal together. It is more of a casual establishment, and something to keep in mind is that there are no servers, so you will need to ensure your pooch is tied up when you go inside to get your order.

Another great place to eat with your furry friend is Chickies Beef, yet another example of fine Italian-American cuisine in Hillside. There are several menu options available, so you're sure to find something you like. Canine companions are more than welcome to beg for a bite at the outdoor tables. Chickies also has good hours to accommodate everyone no matter what time their tummies start growling.

If you are looking for additional amenities that are dog-friendly, you can find more just a short drive away from Hillside.
