It makes sense that a company like Drizly — the alcohol delivery app — would have a vested interest in how many people are aware of which restaurants allow you to bring your own booze, and today they unleashed a handy guide to the best BYOB restaurants in 10 major cities to help spread the word.

The app compiled lists of the best BYOB spots in Austin, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, New Orleans, New York City, San Diego and Seattle, highlighting restaurants across different styles of cuisine and price points all with one thing in common: they’ll allow you to bring in a bottle of something to sip on while you eat.

Check out a list of which restaurants made the cut in each city below, and for more information about each one, read Drizly’s full list here.
