Hughie's is a Vietnamese/American pub grub restaurant and beer bar. All paneled wood on the inside, with a few unobtrusive TV's turned to sports. A tiny L bar that does not seat very many people. Booths and tables scattered throughout, and a shaded patio with picnic tables outside. It has this great worn in almost dive vibe, but without being a dive at all. If that makes sense.

Service is incredibly friendly, and really knowledgeable about the different Vietnamese food options. Not all bartenders are up to snuff on selection, style, etc. Though the owner is on top of things, and was quizzing the staff last time I visited. The owner is always willing to chat, and is a blast to gab with.

Food is great. Their special Banh Mi is one of my favorite sandwiches in Houston. With cold steamed pork, chicken pate, this incredible fresh backed baguette, and pickled veggies. The spring rolls, and dumplings are amazing as well. Plenty of other good items on the menu, and everything is so well priced.

On to the beer...20 rotating taps. There is an emphasis on Houston and Texas breweries. Karbach, Saint Arnold of coarse, and they will get some specialty releases from them as well. Though Live Oak Hefe, 512 Pecan Porter. Other national brands like Prairie Artisan, Firestone Walker, the Deschutes Fresh Squeeze was spot on when I had it the other day. The bottle list is about 50. Again, well selected with only a few macros.

An excellent spot to grab a bite, and the tap list is no joke. They can hold their own against most of the higher volume beer bars in town. A great down to earth, unpretentious hidden gem.
