I was downtown and stopped in on my way back home.

Well this i have to say isn't my favorite specs in the Austin area, the dim lighting is a little off putting and it gives the place an odd feeling for me(this is highlighted by the way it sprawls) the place is huge too. It's much bigger than the front of the building would suggest. Good selection and I get the feeling that the beer section isn't the most frequented and was able to pick up a few things the other specs had sold out of and I'll happily put up with odd layout and seemingly way to spread out beer section for that alone. The staff wasn't helpful at all but I'm not going to knock them for that the place was deserted anyway and I'm sure I caught the girl off guard.

Aside from the odd layout and my personal quips aside this isn't a bad store and if I'm in the area I'll stop by see what's in stock

Incredible store. It's a chain superstore and has tons of great food and wine. The beer selection was ok, but nothing special. There were quite a few options, but nothing too rare.

Although one of the larger Spec's, it used to not be frequented too much. However, that has changed. They also lost their only quality beer guy awhile back, so service is hit or miss now.
