This little Spec's is easy to miss. It's located in a shopping center, very typical of Katy. I was really surprised by the size of it. Definately the smallest Spec's location I've ever been to. Looks like it could've been placed in an old Subway location. I can't really say much of the service. I wasn't seeked out to be helped, but on the other hand, when I had a question for the employees, they seemed to have some answers. Wine seems to be the main focus of this Spec's, with spirits at a somewhat distant second, and beer at an even more distant third. Seriously, the selection here was on par with an HEB. Not bad, but for a Spec's, I expect a lot more.

This has to be the smallest beer section of any Spec's that I have been to. I don't think I would ever recommend this place to any beer person. There are at least 3 other Spec's within 5 miles that have at least twice as large of a beer section as this place.

I can't comment on the service as I pretty much walked in and out since there wasn't much beer to consider.
