When the weather is nice, sitting outdoors on a patio is my preference rather than being stuck inside on a beautiful day.

For lunch, dinner or a place to enjoy a cup of coffee, whether you are looking for fast food or more of a sit-down meal, Texarkana offers many options for dining outside. Here are some of the patios you the listener votes as your favorite.

The results are in no particular order.

Scottie's. Just west of town on Highway 67 is Scottie's. They have a huge patio and great live music on the weekends, Scottie's is the place to go.

Redbone Magic Brewing Company A new entry into the Texarkana dining scene Redbone has a great patio with some cornhole and awesome pizza and craft beer. Redbone is on Texas Blvd.

Hopkin's Icehouse If you like the downtown atmosphere, check out the patio at Hopkins Icehouse. It is a quiet setting and they have a great selection of different entrees. The Gibson Road location has great stuff for the kids to do while you enjoy your meal.

Pop's Place. Located on Highway 67, it has an outdoor patio area with tons of character. The last time I was there they have misters to cool you off. They have a great selection of food to choose from.

Fuzzy's Taco Shop. I love Mexican food and Fuzzy’s is one of my favorite places to go. They have a great patio area.
