10 "BYOB" restaurants in Austin.
True BYOB spots (AKA no corkage fee) are hard to find. True BYOB spots with food that doesn’t suck are even rarer. Here are the places where you can show up with your own bottle and spend that extra money on a meal you actually want to eat.
The trailer Artipasta serves fresh handmade pasta, and it’s possibly some of the best in town. It’s located in the Thicket Food Park in South Austin.
Dough Boys is a wood-fired Neapolitan pizza truck in Arbor Food Park in East Austin
Rosarito sells ceviche, tostadas, and fish bowls out of a food truck in East Austin.
Located in the East Side Food Park, Kerlin BBQ serves all the greatest hits, but it’s their barbecue kolaches that set it apart.
Micklethwait is a BBQ trailer in East Austin. It’s not a classic yet, but these guys know what they’re doing.
The single best overall BBQ experience in Austin (which isn’t actually in Austin) is The Salt Lick.
Little Deli feels like a trip back to a simpler time, when the perfect Italian sandwich or slice of pizza was all you really needed.
A super creative menu and adventurous food make this one of our favorite spots in town.
