If you are looking for a laid-back local pub, Cahill's is the place for you. It has some of the best service in Houston. Your drink is always filled/fresh. The staff are friendly and fun. The food is great. I recommend the mini-corn dogs; you can't go wrong. There is plenty of parking, even when it's packed. They have plenty of screens to watch the Rockets, Stros, College Fball, etc. And, if you request to watch a specific game, they will almost always accommodate the request. If you are in the neighborhood, pull up a seat at the bar, and relax with a cold one.
Pros: Great Service, Plenty of Parking, Large Deck/Porch
