Awesome selection and super friendly staff. There is a deli section where you can eat, and there were multiple venders serving wine, food and liquor samples. Tons of beer from around the world to select from; seemed this Specs had more beer than others I have been in here in Texas.

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.
