A great meal is complemented by great booze, but alcohol in any form can get expensive. Luckily, a number of Austin restaurants invite diners to bring their own so they don’t have to break the bank.

Here are Austin’s best BYOB restaurants and food trailers, that leave the choice of beverage pairings and price tags in the diners’ hands. This includes the pregaming of Franklin Barbecue, taco pairings at Tacodeli, low corkage fees at Phara's Mediterranean Cuisine, DIY mimosas at Omelettry, pasta truck Regal Ravioli, and others. This update adds Nepalese-Indian restaurant Saffron to the map.
