We all love cheap food, and Montreal has a ton of it. However, what often ends up racking up a high bill are the drinks that we get while we eat. Cocktails, beers, wine... Alcohol is sold at a pretty steep price in restaurants.\nAnd, let's be real: we don't know the difference between dep wine and the real fancy stuff.\nIf you're looking to save on your next restaurant outing, consider a BYOW restaurant. BYOW doesn't mean that a restaurant is "bad" or "cheap": often, it just means that a restaurant wants to save on liquor licenses.\nTry any of the restaurants on this list and you'll see what I mean!\nREAD ALSO: 20 Montreal Restaurants Where You Can Eat A Lot For Under $20\nTL;DR The restaurants on this list are all BYOW, so you can try new food without breaking the bank.
