There are many things I like about Mr Gís - they have many of their Belgian and ageable beers on unrefridgated shelves, they have a section of single bottles, you can break six packs apart/mix&match, and every month they have tastings showcasing a different style of beer. Said tasting started out shaky, but are getting better every month. Their deli has some tasty sammies. and their service is pretty good. The selection is on par or better than most of the area stores and their prices usually are good as well.
I have been on a rant lately that Gís is really losing itís greatness. They are very close to my house and I have become a bit of a regular, which might be why I am getting jaded. The staff are frinedly but rarely come out from behind the counter.

My second favorite store in the DFW area, next to Halls Grocery. Mr. Gs cares almost everything that is available in Texas.
Being able to break six-packs is great, but I donít understand why people rave about Mr. Gís that much. There are a few bottles that Central Market doesnít have, but I find there are others that CM has that they donít. I also get a feeling of being cramped, like Iím going to knock a bottle off a display. I havenít tried the deli.
When you pull up to Mr. Gís Beverage Center & Deli in Plano, Texas you are met by a rather large store with ample parking and spotless glass windows that checker a colored brick exterior. Upon entrance, a staff member immediately asks if you require any assistance in a sincere and friendly fashion. The interior of this store is spacious and easy to navigate thanks to the well designed layout and easily visible signs. The wine selection is extensive and the rare wine room is particularly impressive. In the back there is a vast array of beers in both individual bottles, and six packs; both on dry shelfs and in coolers. There is even a deli in the rear of the store! I was very pleased when I came here looking for something special to commemorate my 1000th review and Robert the manager of the rare wine room procured a bottle of Fullerís Vintage Ale 2000. Mr. Gís is truly a store that will take that extra step for its customers.
Great store with a great selection, of both beer and Wine (according to my dad who was with me). Well worth hitting this place as well as kegs and barrels down the road. Nice chill vibe in here and a nice layout as well.
Good beer store with a deli attached. The beer selection is one of the best in the DFW area and you can break six packs to buy singles, which is a rarity around these parts. Nice selection of Belgian beers, as well as sakes, meads and ciders. The deli is very good and has multiple awards from Zagat hanging on the wall. Great selection of sandwiches and fast service. You can take the sandwich with you, but there are also places to eat in the store. One of my favorite stores.
Mr. Gís is a beer and wine store that has, what I believe to be a pretty nice selection of beers (some rare stuff too) but they mostly have lots and lots of wines. There are people to help you and the stuff is fairly priced. They also have a nice little deli in the back where you can get a bad-ass sandwich, but you cannot drink on the premises.
Just down the street from Central Market Plano, they usually have something in stock that you canít find at CM such as Left Hands big 750ml bottles. Prices can be steep and theyíve yet to break six packs.
