This is a great place; they have a good and wide selection of beers, even if very few rarities; they were pricey ’cause I got singles, but at least this is the first place here in Texas where they allowed me to "break" the 6P and choose whatever I want. Some DFH, including an expensive Raison d’Extra, many Victory, Left Hand and other more or less known micros. They also have a speciality food shop that seems interesting, where I was buying some spices.

Wow, what they say is true. This place really does have by far the best selection in DFW. Gas station, with a huge selection of wine and beer. Lots of local Texas wines. A little market with fresh produce and deli in the back. Helpful staff. Beers are scattered all over the place, and they are just things you don’t see else where in Dallas. No ice ciders, and minimal ciders in general. A few meads, including two I hadn’t seen before. Sake selection was good, but not great. Layout isn’t great. This place is damn expensive as well. A bit out of the way for me as well.
Wow!! I finally drove from N. Dallas to Colleyville for fun today...I saw the outside of this place and thought, TChrome and bu11zeye sure did trick me...don’t let the outside fool you!!!! FANTASTIC selection!! Probably the best or 2nd best one around!! 10/22/2004 they still had Unibroue 10 on the shelf!! They don’t anymore though... :
Driven by here 100’s of times, A Valero station? Has excellent deli and lots of beers not seen in Dallas. Prices are $1-2 higher and singles are $4.50 ouch! Selection is reason for shopping here, also looks to have good selection of sake
Best selection in DFW coupled with the worst prices. Out of the way for me, but I buy my firewood here in the winter, so I can never stop myself from looking around. And damned if I don’t al;ways see something new, but only buy about 50% of the time because of the prices- not because I can’t afford, but for the princeable of the thing. Charlie Hall loves and admits to being a ripoff.

The largest selection of beer in the Dallas/Ft.Worth metroplex. In close proximity to DFW airport for those of you who travel. However, I will not be back due to the high prices of singles....
Look, when you’re beer hunting in DFW, you’re talking differences at the margin: perhaps Central Market doesn’t have the full line of Julius Echter available when you go; or perhaps Mr G’s had Old Ruffian when other stores in the area didn’t yet have it out. Whatever. It’s not like we’re talking about one store being the BE ALL END ALL of beer hunting. Halls has some marginal victories at the high end and the low end: I’d never even heard of, much less seen, Schaefer’s Light (for $1.09 for a big can!); and they had Avery The Beast’s new release. But since I’d had The Beast in its previous release (bought at Central Market), how big of a deal is this? Good: almost all beer in coolers, Chaucer’s Mead (the only place I’ve seen it in DFW so far), sake selection comparable to Central Market-Lovers Lane. But will I make special trips out here? No. But I will check it out when I’m headed to Fort Worth or Tad’s for any reason.

This store is very inconsistent. Sometimes the staff is very knowledgeable and helpful, other times the people seem completely disinterested/rude and know little to nothing about beer.
Until a few months ago, Hall’s was always among the first stores in the Dallas area to get new beers and often times had beers that were nowhere else in the area. For example, they have had Allagash Victor, Victoria, Four, etc... for months, while no one else outside of Houston and Austin has gotten any.
That being said, several months ago (Fall 2010) they remodeled the store and switched to also selling liquor. Since that time, business has seemed to really pick up - the store is always packed - but the selection has suffered. There are beers available in DFW that they now don’t stock and others they get weeks after other stores. The selection is still very good, just not as good as it was before the switch to liquor sales. Also, the prices are among the highest in the Metroplex and they do not sell singles.
They also sell sandwiches in the deli, which are a little expensive, but pretty good nonetheless.

Amazing selection for a GAS STATION. Heard about it from a friend and made the trip up. I wasn’t disappointed in the selection. Was able to pick up some Sam Adams specialty brews that I had never seen before. Prices were much higher than I was used to seeing, but what are ya gonna do? It’s a gas station.
