Last time at bar was May 5--- first trivia night after Vern's passing. Everything really nice. Cold beer, friendly vibe, great hamburgers-- you feel at home here. Nice weather and the patio is great, shaded by huge sycamore trees. I love this place.

Trivia Night is sooooooooooooooooo much better with the change to the all you can eat Nacho bar! We still go for a burger and try to get there an hour early to secure a table. Vern is hysterical, the questions are challenging and the crowd is friendly! All ages show up. YES, there are great draft and bottle specials! It's... More

We tried the dollar hot dogs (there are also $1 taco's) the Monday night special! Dogs are huge and covered in chili and onions plus there is st Arnolds on draft! The staff is super friendly and courteous-- lots of TV's to watch a dozen or so games at once. It's great!

Went on a Thursday night because we heard was the best dive bar in Houston and had competitive bar trivia. Vern, the Alex Trebek of Griff's bar trivia, is a character. Definitely call ahead to see if the Jagermeister girls will be there in a bear costume. My wife said for a dive bar that the bathrooms were not bad.... More

Their quirky Thursday night trivia is a magnet for RICE grad students and Retired news anchors--- you can wind fairly good money considering how crowded it is--and the included munchies are great! Go for the burgers--plus the onion rings!
