Went here a couple of weeks ago and can't wait until I get to go again. Fortunately, I have family there, so I have a reason to go, other than beer.

Checked out a couple of 'satellite' Spec's locations, but this is the one to go to. They have everything the smaller spots have and more. Found several things that I was searching for along with a few surprises that I didn't expect.
The staff was very helpful and even pointed out a couple of things that I'd missed, based on what they saw in my cart.
Prices were what you'd expect them to be, overall. A couple of items were a bit pricey and a couple were cheaper than expected, so it kind of balanced itself out.
They have a decent wine and liquor selection, too, by the way.

This location also is a high-end grocery store. Imported cooking goods and chocolates. Fresh produce and meats and cheeses. A great selection of sodas, a few of which even I was unfamiliar with.

Aside from the beer, the best thing about this location is their deli. You can get food to go or they have bench seating in the front of the store so you can eat it there.
My wife and I agreed that this is the best deli sandwich spot we've found outside of New York.

An excellent store that is not to be missed.

If it's sold in Texas, Spec's warehouse location will have it. Period.
