There’s nothing more liberating than a restaurant that allows you to supply your own alcohol. Not only do you get to drink what you want, but it’s way less expensive to bring your own. Whether you’re pinching pennies, itching to try that bottle of wine that was gifted to you or you’re simply particular about the brand of booze you prefer, here are a handful of awesome Dallas area haunts that offer delicious food and BYOB, as recommended by our most seasoned Dallas apartment locators.
If you’re a fan of Mediterranean fare, then you’ll want to add Sevan into your dining out rotation. Located in Lower Greenville, Sevan G&G Café specializes in freshly prepared, authentic and healthy meals (falafel, anyone?) served in a casual, cozy atmosphere. Best of all, their menu is affordable, which is great for anyone on a tight budget, and you can bring your beverage of choice. Brunch and dinner are both available, so why not check them out some time this week?
Aboca’s Italian Grill in Richardson is one of those great, old-fashioned, family-owned restaurants where guests are made to feel like family. The portions are massive and prepared only the finest, freshest ingredients. Their menu is impressive, packed with everything from pizza and salads to traditional pasta dishes that’ll make you think you’ve been teleported straight to Sicily. Wine is available for purchase, but you can also BYOB, so it’s good for the wallet as well!
Like authentic Thai cuisine? Then you’re going to love Sakhuu Thai. With two locations, there’s double the deliciousness. Order up some spring rolls or chicken satay. Or, take a walk on the wilder side with their spicy edamame or panang curry. And, of course, there’s always pad Thai, which is definitely a customer favorite. Best of all, Sakhuu is delightfully BYOB, so you can pair your preference with whatever boozy beverage you’d like.
Plano is home to more than just some of the area’s nicest Dallas luxury apartments. It’s also home to Zorba’s Greek Café, a quaint, friendly establishment where you “come as a stranger, and leave as a friend.” A friend that’s stuffed to the gills with delectable, home-style Greek food, that is. Everything they prepare comes from family recipes – no cookbooks allowed. Enjoy some moussaka or an authentic Greek gyro. For dessert, indulge in a slice of baklava cheesecake, and wash it all down with your favorite wine, beer or spirits. Opa!
When you’ve got a hankering for some good ol’ fashioned comfort food and prefer to dine in a more casual atmosphere, Babe’s doesn’t disappoint. Their menu is incredibly simple, and features just what you’d expect – fried chicken, chicken fried steak, fried catfish and the like – served up with generous helpings of traditional home-cooked sides, like corn, mashed potatoes, biscuits and gravy. And, of course, you can bring along your go-to adult beverage to accompany your meal.
