1. Monkey King Noodle Company 3014 Main St, Dallas, TX 75226 (Deep Ellum)

From a dude who savored on the streets of Taipei and northern China, plus trained with a noodle master in NYC, all before getting his noodle restaurant on, MKNC promises both legit ass noodles, but also a show: the guy pulls noods in the kitchen window, rolling, kneading, slapping, and stretching wheat-and-water dough into those guys you're about to slurp up.

2. Urbano Cafe 1410 N Fitzhugh Ave, Dallas, TX 75204 (Lakewood)

Hit up Urbano Cafe for an Italian-leaning menu with some Texas twists, like risotto balls with Fresno peppers and queso fresco.

3. 20 Feet Seafood Joint 1146 Peavy Rd, Dallas, TX 75218 (Bishop Arts Dist)

Corkage-free BYOB and delicious, greasy eats like a crispy cod po' boy or a lobster roll with a side of garlic rosemary fries make 20 Feet a great spot for a relaxing, delicious meal.

4. Ten Eleven Grill 1011 Corinth St, Dallas, TX 75215 (Downtown)

Ten Eleven takes on a lot of responsibilities -- restaurant, club, and poetry house -- and juggles them well. Take down some burgers and jalapeño-loaded fries while you take in some poetry.

5. Kozy 2 Day 4433 McKinney Ave, Dallas, TX 75244 (North Dallas)

BYOB and gluten-free, this restaurant offers anything you might need for brunch: omelettes, three types of French toast, and the Hangover Helper (grass-fed buffalo, sautéed spinach and mushrooms, scrambled eggs, topped with house-made salsa and guacamole). With diver sea scallops and buffalo tacos, the lunch and dinner menus are nothing to scoff at either.

6. Wing Bucket 1200 Main St, Dallas, TX 75202 (The West End)

Wings and beer are somewhat of a magical combination, especially when you get to BYO said beer. Enter the Wing Bucket. And enter yourself, into the Wing Bucket. And enter a bucket of wings, into you.

7. El Come Taco 2513 N Fitzhugh Ave, Dallas, TX 75204 (East Dallas)

El Come Taco focuses on simply prepared street tacos made with corn tortillas and filled with brisket, sirloin, or if you're craving a crunch, crispy grasshopper. The add-ons are minimal (most tacos are topped with nothing more than cilantro and chopped onion), letting the juiciness of the meat and the grainy texture of the tortillas speak for themselves.

8. S&D Oyster Company 2701 McKinney Ave, Dallas, TX 75204 (Uptown)

This BYO Dallas staple has been open for more than 30 years, and you can still hit them up for super-fresh oysters, shrimp, and other delicious sea critters.

9. Mike Anderson's 5411 Harry Hines Blvd, Dallas, TX 75235 (Stemmons Corridor)

Mike Anderson’s has had its fire burning for the last 30+ years -- his brisket is his calling card, but if you’re in the mood for poultry, the turkey and chicken thighs bring the smoke as well.

10. Elaine's Kitchen 2717 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Dallas, TX 75215

This Caribbean hole in the wall just keeps on delivering delicious Caribbean flavors in the form of food like jerk chicken, oxtail, and pepper steak piled high on fresh rice to soak up the flavorful sauce.

Nonna Tata is a great reason to hit up Fort Worth for their fresh homemade pastas and a very unique BYO booze, glass, and opener policy.
