  1. Maru on Burnet was a BYOB the last time I went, but that was over a year ago. Place was worthy of a trip. Not amongst the best sushi in town, but was good enough.

      I'm working on a full review but Bejucos on Cesar Chavez is byob and they'll bring you a nice tub of ice for your beer.

        Two sad comments:

        Maru now has license and their food has suffered terribly.

          I agree. The last time I went, I got the katsu don which was bland with overcooked rice and was no longer BYOB.

        1. Zorba's in Round Rock lets you BYOB

          1. Fuegos on Lamar is still waiting for their license and is currently BYOB.

            1. Zoot used to offer that for a corkage fee of $10. Not sure if they still do or not.

              1. dai due supper club. jessie & tamara do a great job. it is roughly $75 per person, bring your own wine. i've been to a number of them and it has been a great experience. check out their website for the different dinner themes.

                1. I noticed today that Subsin's Thai on Manchaca is BYOB. I've never been, so I don't know anything about it other than a friend ate there once and described it as feeling like she was in the middle of a Wes Anderson movie.

                  1. In my neighborhood: Brooklyn Pie Co. and in the same shopping center a new Mexican restaurant (Molca's I think). Also Nino's Pizza.

                    1. Sorry, guess I should clarify - my neighborhood is NW Hills area - Mesa mostly between Steck and Spicewood Springs.
