Best Dive Bar: Griff's Irish Pub

Jeff Bezos doesn’t have anything on the princes and princesses of the Houston restaurant industry on $3.50 you-call-it night at Griff’s (Sundays). Divey without being dirty, the decorative clutter is as sentimental as that fake Christmas tree you've hauled in and out of the attic since the '60s, cracked macaroni ornaments and all. Whether it’s your first time or fiftieth, Griff’s delivers major club-house feels especially on their steak (Tuesdays), trivia (Thursdays), karaoke (Fridays) and poker (Sundays) nights. And daily food and drink specials are out of this world— $20 will have you buzzed, fed, and on your way to wherever it was you were going, be it bed or beyond.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
