The original Doc’s opened in 2005 on South Congress Avenue in Austin, housed in a former auto-repair shop that was owned by a guy nicknamed Doc, hence the name and automotive theme. The bar expanded to two more locations in Austin and now has ventured into Houston with this location in Montrose.
Doc’s serves upscale bar food such as burgers, sliders, wings, nachos, tacos, salads, and more, including an all-day breakfast menu. Craft-beer lovers will appreciate the selection of more than 50 beers on tap, including upwards of 30 from Texas. The Houston location stays true to the repair-shop theme, with garage doors that can be opened up when the weather is nice, old gas-station signs and even an old rusted-out truck parked under the sign out front. The front patio allows for good people-watching along this busy stretch of Westheimer.
