This is the Mecca for wine and beer fans. Awesome selection of brews for Texas. Wonderful deli for lunch and just an overall fun place to hang out. Oh yeah, and the guys/gals in wine/beer department are helpful AND knowledgeable.

By far the best selection for beer in Houston. The specs around town have about a third of what this one has, from microbrews to big bottle imports it has a great selection. The employees have a great knowledge of beer and can help you find exactly what you are looking for.

Giant store. Lots of beer, wine, liquor. They have fancy foods. They offer "discounts" for paying with cash. The staff is usually helpful and kind.

Spec’s is a chain so I am rating the chain overall. Individual stores are better or worse depending on the staff and selection. I would not rate the Smith St. store as the highest in service since other stores have more helpful staff in the beer dept. One black mark on the Smith St. store. I was buying a whole unopened case and I was forced to open the case in order to get checked out. This caused a delay and the staff did not seem to care. Since I spend thousands of dollars a year at Spec’s I do feel I am entitled to some consideration. The Smith St. store sells out of the most popular ales faster so it is a matter of timing in order to obtain some of the rarer varieties. I am actually able to obtain some of the more difficult to find ales in some of the peripheral stores with a much more sympathetic and helpful staff. I would honestly give the Smith St. store a ranking of 65 but the other stores actually bring up the rating overall.

For the selection of beer and wine, this is probably THE PLACE to go. They have everything you could want.

Huge place with lots of stuff, fancy food liquor wine and a decent amount of beer. They look to have about everything they could have, and some stuff they shouldn’t like 2011 Saison Brett. The debit card discount led to an extra bottle. Good organization, easy to find everything.
