Wife and I love Villas Grill (a Brazilian style steakhouse/Churrascaria in Irving - it's in old downtown Irving so don't expect upscale, but the food is great and there is no corkage. I would recommend bringing your own stems. Picanha, Garlic Steak, and the Pineapple sprinkled with cinnamon (all served via "spits") are some of my favorites. They also have lamb, bacon wrapped chicken, etc.. This place is a carnivores delight and if you leave hungry, it's your fault!

In the mid-cities (Bedford), my wife and I also like to eat at Al Wadi - My favorite's are the lamb kebab and the Baba Ganoush (more fun to say than type). BYOB and no corkage. When they have chocolate up front, try a piece. Again, this is not upscale, but more of a hole in the wall, family owned place with good food. I recommend bring your own stems.

I didn't know you were that close Tex. Next time we head there I'll drop you a line and see if you're available.

Only there for about four more months +/-. New construction down in Mansfield will take us far, far away.

Just tried Trio last weekend... pretty good and we plan on returning to try again. Rack of lamb was pretty tasty. In Colleyville BYOB no corkage.

Heading to Dallas today and staying around the medical center for 2 nights (Dallas Children's). Any places I should hit up for dinner? I will have a car.

Scott, we don't get over to Dallas often, but we were over at The Porch two weekends ago. That seems to be our go-to. Great craft beers, nice, albeit simple wines and great cocktails. With regard to food, I can recommend the Stodg Burger, Short Rib Stroganoff and almost anything off the Big Board...and the mac and cheese as a side. Just east of 75 (1/8 mile) on Henderson...north side of the road, valet behind.

Eden Cafe on Lovers allows BYO...not sure of corkage though...surprisingly good food for what it looks like from the outside. Also, Balls Hamburgers on NW Hwy and Midway allows as well, not sure of the rules, but i would love to do a weekend lunch offline there....sliders and wine sounds pretty fun.

I went to Mangiamo last night and went with a real bad attitude about what I thought we would be getting. I was totally surprised by how great everything was. This is the best family style Italian food I have eaten in Dallas. No corkage no stems.

Sakhuu (about a block away from Jimmy's food store on Bryan St.) is also a good BYOB place if you want to bring Riesling to a tasty and inexpensive (but surprisingly sophisticated) Vietnamese restaurant. And think corkage is $1 per person.

We lost a good one in the DFW area. Gregory's Bistro, formerly in downtown McKinney has moved to the Mitas Hill Winery on the border between McKinney and Melissa, TX. The only wine available now is wine made by Mitas Hill Winery. A major disappointment to many of us in the area.

The move to Mitas Hill Winery didn't last long for Gregory's Bistro. He left and will be opening in Adriatica Village in McKinney, TX on or about 1 November. He doesn't yet know if his new restaurant will be BYOB however. We shall see.

Well, it's official. The new Gregory's Bistro will not be BYOB. Sad but understandable.

JS Chen on Legacy in Plano is BYOB. No corkage and they have stems/cork screws. Been going there forever and just realized it. Some tasty Bedrock Zin would have fit the bill nicely.

Many of you in the DFW area know and like Gregory's Bistro in McKinney. They have been full cycle from BYOB only to no BYOB under any circumstances. I think they have figured out that they lost a lot of regular customers when they went no BYOB so they are sticking their toe back in the water. They now allow BYOB on Wednesdays. Corkage is $20 per table irregardless of bottle count. A good start.

Fyi - Suze is moving across the parking lot and will discontinue their BYOB policy. Had dinner there last night for one of our final BYOBs. (it was great!)

Major bummer. By "discontinue their BYOB policy" do you just mean their corkage-free BYOB policy on Tuesday night (and early Fri)? Because they've also always allowed BYOB on other nights for a $20/bottle fee (for which they don't always strictly enforce "per bottle", sometimes only hitting you for a couple of your bottles). Do you know if they're going to completely disallow BYOB altogether, and no longer even allow it with a corkage fee?

-----Also, there is a little hole-in-the-wall Lebanese place on Oak Lawn (near Maple) called "Open Sesame". They have decent lamb and beef souvlakia, chicken schwarma (with great garlic sauce), falafel plates, etc. and good sides (hummus, tabouli, fries, etc.). It's very simple (and inexpensive at about $12-$19 for entrée plates) and actually quite good for take out....but also is BYOB and a pleasant place to sit (quiet, only about 6-7 tables), and in an area of Dallas without much BYOB beyond Thai food.

John, it is my understanding that after they move they'll be going the road to a mixed beverage permit. The kiss of death for BYOB in Texas.
