Best liquor store in town, with widest beer, liquor & wine selections. Also has small deli and grocery department. Beware "helpful" wine salespeople on commission; they steer you to high margin items.
Love Spec's to get my fave German coffee, bread and cheeses. Not to mention it's always nice to get a chance to chat with native German speakers who seem to linger just like me! Free sample Saturdays!
It's just so nice to even just walk around here. Full of cheerful ppl who's searching for whatever spirits that can bring a good night of fun. Staff is very helpful finding exactly what you need.
On the weekends there's a ton of liquor tastings in the store between 5p-8p. If you go around and get a few samples you might be able to get an early buzz before leaving the store.
Great selection and prices. I was last here New Year's Eve and it took at least 30 - 45 minutes from the time I got there until the time I left because of parking being so awful.
This liquor store just puts all other liquor stores to shame. Absinthe with wormwood available here. Also, be sure to remember to pay with cash (It's more expensive when you pay with a credit card).
Huge selection! Just be aware that many of the ratings for the wines are for different years than the bottles actually being sold... Wines vary drastically by year.
While you are shopping for a great bottle of wine, try our Telteca Gran Reserva from Argentina. A great blend. Or Telteca Anta Malbec Reserve if you like Malbec. Cheers
The mecca of liquor. Largest SPEC's in Texas. You can find almost anything here. If they don't have it, they'll order it for you too.
Craft Beer Motherload! Hands down the best Specs of the city. If you want to find a good selection, grab a bite from the in store deli and pickup snacks for later, this is the spot.
If you want to get a sandwich to go during the weekday get there before noon or you might have a long wait.
They always having good deals on alcohol only if your a member and I believe spec's the cheapest you'll find
Come in near the holidays or on the weekend, great chance to sample something new! Love this place!
Best Specs hands down. If I lived downtown, I'd shop here 25% of the time. Awesome cheese selection.
These guys have wine and liquor experts. They can help you select inexpensive, yet great adult beverages.
Great food in deli! Long lines at lunch but moves quickly. Hot grill or cold sandwiches. Great produce.
Come during the times they give out samples - this lets you figure out what you like and what to avoid!!!
I can't imagine an ale, wine or spirit you would want that this Mother of all Spec's wouldn't have. Check out the rare Scotch Whiskies in the locked case!
By far the widest selection in Houston. Avoid going on Saturday evening: it's a bit of a madhouse!

Specs is the emporium for alcohol. Love this place, and almost always end up getting some random cheeses or meats before I go.
