Top BYOB Restaurants in Houston

Top BYOB Restaurants in HoustonI love nothing more than a relaxing date night with my hubby. Maybe sitting outside, ordering drinks, and enjoying a nice dinner without the kids.  One of our favorite things to do is hit up area restaurants that allow you to “BYOB”…bring your own beverages {usually wine or beer}. Yep, you might not know it, but some places allow you to bring your own drinks and enjoy it with your dinner. Usually, these restaurants don’t have a liquor license. Either way, you are saving a good amount of money from your bill because as you know, restaurants usually mark up the cost of wine BIG TIME when you buy it off the menu. {Example, our favorite wine is $12 in the store and $45 on the menu in one particular restaurant we frequent.} So, we here at Houston Moms Blog want to help a momma out! We’ve come up with a list of places where you can bring in your own drinks – sorted by area! Each restaurant has a different policy when it comes to alcohol, so make sure to call ahead. For instance, it is common to pay a “corking fee” when you bring in your own wine. {Anywhere from $1 to $10.} Also, we should note, restaurants often change their policies on this BYOB perk, so double check for that too!

  1. Jonathan’s The Rub in Hedwig Village is another great BYOB place for a date night. It’s super popular, so sometimes there’s a wait on Friday and Saturday nights, but totally worth it!

  2. George’s Pastaria on Dairy Ashford. BYOB $10. Free on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday AND they have a well priced and diverse wine list. They have been open 28 years!!
