Spec's Deli

2410 Smith Houston, TX 77006 | Montrose | 713-526-8787

Location Description:

Back in the far recesses of this mammoth whiskey-and-wine warehouse is another sinful pleasure: its deli. Angus roast beef is big here. The Reuben To Die For packs its half-pound of warmed Angus corned beef with sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and Russian dressing on dark pumpernickel. Even lighter appetites will have trouble making it through the crunchy California Dreamin', with a half-pound of turkey stuffed between wheat bread with Havarti cheese, avocados, cucumbers and tomato.
