There is a small area outside on a deck with tables and seating that is roughly 20'x20' for which dogs are welcome. The owner (I think) even came out to welcome the dogs when we were there

The Grease Monkey Burger Shop and Social Club team has a goal to change the Arlington Restaurant / Bar experience. “The Monkey” combines hearty burgers, wicked libations, serious music and a party deck destined to be the place to be seen on a beautiful Texas day. We are excited to be part of a new Downtown Arlington REVIVAL focused on bringing the people back to where Arlington Business and Arlington Cool were born.
