You will be pleasantly surprised with the amount of BYOB restaurants in Dallas. I have listed a few of my favorites for you to enjoy.
If you are looking to save a few bucks on your dinner bill, BYOB friendly restaurants should be first on your list. This is the perfect way to take a group of friends and letting them indulge in a nice bottle of wine or two. It is also a great date night idea. Bringing along a specific bottle of wine to celebrate an anniversary can be a very romantic gesture.
Cedars Mediterranean Mezza & Grill: Open for brunch, lunch, and dinner, this BYOB restaurant has an extensive vegetarian buffet. They also serve a variety of authentic Mediterranean dishes. Feast on grilled lamb, gyros, and hummus. Your favorite bottle of red wine would be the perfect pairing for this meal. If you have yet to visit this restaurant, I highly recommend stopping by for a meal.
Bocce Italian Kitchen: This bring your own booze restaurant serves everything from pizza, pasta, salads, rissoto balls, and dessert. Experience the taste of Italy at this quaint Italian cafe. A bottle of Grappa would be the perfect compliment to any Italian dish that is served. One of my favorite combos is pizza and a beer.
Sakhuu: If you love Thai food as much as I do, you must visit this restaurant. They make a delicious Pad Thai. In fact, their food is so good, it was featured at the State Fair of Texas this year. A bottle of chardonnay would go perfectly with the menu at this BYOB restaurant. It will go especially well with the Thai Curry dishes they serve.
Pho Envy: This Vietnamese bistro serves only premium, grass fed beef. This makes for an incredibly delicious Shaken Filet Mignon. They also serve a mean bowl of Pho. Their menu has several gluten free options available including egg rolls and a curry stir fry. Depending on your preference bringing your own bottle of Merlot or your favorite brew are both great options.
Tacodeli: Enjoy an array of different tacos. They serve a variety of tacos including vegetarian, beef, and seafood. Tacodeli also prides themselves in preparing their food with local produce, meat, and seafood. The result? Fresh, delicious food. Another great spot to bring your favorite pack of suds.
Fangate: I know, this is not a restaurant, BUT, it is the next best thing. Reserve Fangate for your next tailgate experience at AT&T Stadium. Prepare for the Cowboy’s or Ranger’s game in style. This company will set up a space for you and your friends with a tent, table, chairs, food, TV’s to watch the pregames, and coolers full of ice (to keep your BYOB nice and cold!). Besides the fact that you can save a ton of money on bringing your own booze, especially with the inflated stadium prices, when the game starts and you are ready to take a seat inside of the stadium all you need to do is walk away. They clean up the mess for you! Pure genius.
Try to be considerate of the restaurant when you BYOB. Some of them do charge a cork fee for keeping your bottle of wine on ice. Avoid bringing your booze inside of a plastic bag. Pick out a bag that is discreet and pleasant to look at.
