This bar is most definitely the bar of my choice if I am in the Clear Lake area! My review will be broken down into sections: -Location Upstairs and to the right of Scout Bar Coming from Houston, take I-45s to Nasa 1 Parkway(new exit south of the old Nasa 1 rd exit), then exit Egret bay and take a right, it is in the big 2-story building on the left just past the 1st light. -Parking Parking is free. If there is no parking right in front of the bar, they have a whole parking lot on the south side of Bucks(some of it is covered) -Entry When you first walk up, you will be welcomed by the friendly staff possibly even the owner(Buck) himself. If you are one of the first 100 people to arrive, you will get in free. It may be first 200 now, not sure(If not its only $5). However, if you arrive early, make sure you are with a group of people and are just wanting to get started with the drinking because the bulk of the crowd won't arrive until around Midnight. -Drink Cost The drinks are pretty cheap between 10 and 12 o'clock, but they never become unreasonable. They are even cheaper before 10. I think $6 is the most you will spend on a drink with a top-shelf liquor during peak hours. **Buck will get on the microphone and offer dollar Jager, Tequila, or some other great deals "if you can find him" at one of the 4 bars his is standing at periodically.** -Inside Details As mentioned before, there are 4 bars, 2 dance floors(one of which has stage area in center for girls only), and several VIP areas of which are treated extremely well! The joint has an excellent sound system and DJs that play mostly today's hiphop with some dance and the random throwback songs. All in all, if you want to shake it on the floor, it accommodates you. They also usually have some pretty good break dancers in there going off for some entertainment! They even have a couple of pool tables and a punching bag for you guys that need to let some aggression out or have a competition with your buddies. Hell, I have even seen some cute girls line up for some action. -Crowd This is where some of you may like or dislike it, but I will be real. There is not a strict dress code, therefore, there is a mixture of styles here. They do have some very good looking people(both men and women) that come here, though. It is also 18 and up for women and some people don't like that. Even though I would have to say it makes no difference. For you 18-20yr old girls that want to come and still drink, beware! They will not hesitate on politely asking you to leave. So better be sneaky about it or else but I don't recommend it. -Bartenders First of all, they have a world champion bartender(he's awesome at flipping those bottles) who usually tends the bar to the left center. I personally use the bar to the right center bc it is closest to the main dance floor, but all the bartenders are nice, quick and FAIR to all that come up. -Bouncers Bouncers are friendly until you start crap. These guys do not put up with any BS, so don't plan on getting away with fighting. They will take you down to the cops that wait out front. But this is a good thing, there is hardly any fighting going on here. They even have 2 police officers that work inside the club as well. So, overall safe atmosphere. Restrooms Restrooms are in center of bar facing the main entrance and are decent. They do have an attendant inside the men's restroom. Can't speak for the women's though. * This is a smoking bar/club, however, it is well ventilated in here. It is actually not bad at all, there are lots of people that do not smoke that still come and don't complain
I am their # fan...Years ago I was raised to buy my meat from there.Where it's located, there once was a Rice Grocery Store that was on the same street as Johnson's Funeral Home. We would walk and shop at Jim's. Well that was almost 20 years ago, now with a awesome husband and 3 hungry & gifted but still growing young men our income isn't getting any larger.The entire staff treats you with a smile and there's always plenty of laughter. They make you feel like part of the family. Once you drive up, there is always a friendly greeting from the most sweetest cashier's I've ever met especially Ms.Kim. Every single person in the meat department deserves bonus pay but the entire staff deserves raises.Their Homemade Boudain and Dirty Rice from Ms Annie or Mr Johnny is to die for. During the holidays I 've gotten my fried turkeys from here..order early so you won't miss out. The meat is always fresh and of great quality especially their steak.Buy the steak you won;t be disappointed. I never am.The prices aren't so bad compared to the only 2 grocery stores (Fiesta and HEB) when sometimes you can't get there. I love grocery store in walking distants and Jim's the place.I now reside in SW Houston Alief area but once a month I make it my business first to drag my sister along for her household. She purchases a #4 meat pack, she loves it but I purchase a #10 meat pack...that's a lot of meat. I need and must have meat (nearly 70lbs)like this for my growing family. I can't say enough about the place other than to say Thank You to every employee at Jim's.For the record, Personally I feel Mr Jim's (or the owner)really treat his staff with respect & fairness because it shows in their attitudes daily once you enter this store. It's always a pleasure shopping there and knowing these days there are still down-home neighborhood grocery store that still care about their own staff, customers and community. At Jim's...They really Care!!! (Hint:You should use this for your slogan). I AM ONE SATISFIED CUSTOMER...they deserve 5 STARS because that's what they are. Respectully;All Smiles; Kimberly Lott-CASTLEBERRYand family please be blessed.
Alrighty I had originally posted a terrible review about cell planet and the experience that my husband had when he took our galaxy in for a LCD replacement. They said something else was wrong and tried to get us to pay even more, and when my husband said to just put the LCD in it and don't worry about the board connector, they refused and said they can't hand us back a broken phone, so we either pay the 228 for both or they'll put the phone back the way it was and charge us 45 bucks for nothing. Well we finally paid it all just to get our phone back, well the next day the LCD was cutting out and acting funny so i called, i was hung up on 5 times in a row just asking her about my phone but once i mentioned my husband being there she hung up over and over, so needless to say i decided it was time i go down there and unleash the wrath of hell. I went prepared, when i got there i started filming with my phone, i was gonna upload how they treat people to youtube, yahoo, everywhere lol. However one of the owners was there.....and i was met with nothing but kindness from him, he told me he would look at the phone, and he even crossed out the 45 dollars on the paper you have to sign and looked at the phone for us. He said he couldn't fix it after a while, but he at least was very nice. And everybody i saw come in he tried to help. If he could get this place fixed up a little bit i bet it would be a great place to go. It's ran by a bunch of teenagers it seems and they are rude and horrible to you, they just need some fixing up and changing around and hopefully he will get things working better than ever there. Don't get me wrong I still won't go back to this place, because the owner isn't there all the time, but after i came there ready to start a war with them over my phone, he turned out to be very helpful and gave me at least a helpful experience that restored a bit of my faith in the place.
