It only takes one employee to leave a bad taste in your mouth...
My wife purchased 8 bottles of kosher wine for Passover last Thursday. She asked the person who checked her out if she could return the leftover wine. She said no problem (obviously she and my wife missed the big sign on the door that said "All Sales are Final")...
Hall's may be one of the best supplier of wine and spirits in Colleyville, but if they can't take the time to train their employees to answer truthfully then I will simply take my business elsewhere.
Shame on us for not noticing the sign.... Bigger shame on Hall's for not educating us on our obvious oversight...

Edit: made 2 trips within a week since by the airport and found most beers with expired dates or seriously off tastes so lowering quality from 5 to 2.5. Also the service is now terrible. They used to be pretty knowledgeable but not are close to clueless. At these prices and distance, they better improve soon or it's not worth it.
Simple the best selection in the entire DFW metroplex. There are very few beers that I can find other places that I can't find her and many, many that I can only find here. Strange place to find the best beer around. It's a convencience store attached to a Diamond Shamrock (soon to be Valero) gas station in Colleyville on Hwy 121 at Glade Rd. You walk in expecting the usual beers and maybe some wine (also has a deli). BAM - wine everywhere and an incredible beer selection. Told that you can break 6 packs but that they put a high price on it to discourage it. Major downside with great selection is the price to go with it. This is about an hour round trip for me so I buy closer for the beers I know I can get and then go here a couple times a year to get the ones I can't find elsewhere due to the prices. Highly recommend!!! (update: now only recommend if you happen to be in the area)

This store is very consistent. Sometimes the staff is very knowledgeable and helpful, other times the people seem completely disinterested/rude and know little to nothing about beer.
Until a few months ago, Hall's was always among the first stores in the Dallas area to get new beers and often times had beers that were nowhere else in the area. For example, they had Allagash Interlude, Black, Victor, Victoria, Four and Fluxus 2009 in stock for several months, while no one else outside of Houston and Austin has ever gotten any.
That being said, several months ago (Fall 2010) they remodeled the store and switched to also selling liquor. Since that time, business has seemed to really pick up - the store is always packed - but the selection has suffered. There are beers available in DFW that they now don't stock and others they get weeks after other stores. The selection is still very good, just not as good as it was before the switch to liquor sales. Also, the prices are among the highest in the Metroplex and they do not sell singles.
They also sell sandwiches in the deli, which are a little expensive, but pretty good nonetheless.

My friend called me one day saying he found this Valero that had over 950 different varieties of beer. (my friend exaggerates...a lot.)
Just browsing I found a bunch of stuff that was still there but out of season, as others have said. I would use this place to find stuff that you absolutely cannot find somewhere else. It is a good "just in case" place. You can find some great beers here, but I was not able to find any of the 3 beers I was looking for. I was going to ask for help, but there was no one at the counter even with three people waiting in line.
This is an "exceptional" beer store, not the end all be all of beer stores however.

Hall's isn't far from my home, so I'm there quite often. Without any doubt, this is the best selection I've seen in Texas. That doesn't say much as far a lot of other states go, but for Texas, its exceptional.
The service is hit and miss, as others have stated the staff are gas station attendants. Some of them are friendly and somewhat knowledgeable, others are just rude. Most often their greatest interest in the beer is the percentage of alcohol.
The prices are a bit high, but I guess you are paying for selection. The other down side of selection seems to be some of the beers have sat for quite awhile, luckily most all of it is refridgerated.
2/28/07 Just a quick edit of my rating. Other places in the area seem to rival the selection with much better service. Hall's is becoming a "last resort". The selection is good. That's all I can say.

Well, after reading all the hype I decided to stop in and check this place out....high expectations in tow. First off I should have noted that it's a Valero gas station, because I kept driving back and forth looking for a farmer's market type place. As far as the selection goes, it is definitely up to the hype. There were easily numbers in the double figures of beers I've never seen anywhere else. That said, the irony is they didn't have any of the beers I specifically went there looking for (which Central Market did...since I went there right after). On top of that there was not a human in sight to ask about potential stock in the back. The one big caveat is that to me the selection is kind of suspect. I counted at least a half a dozen seasonal beers that were "in season" 6-8 months ago. All I could think of after that was....how old are the rest of these beers ? So, while the selection is interesting, and I'm sure I'll give it another look when I'm over that way...I certainly won't be rushing back, as I left empty handed and very much underwhelmed.

Very easy to find, right on the corner of Glade and 121 South. Like other people have mentioned it is inside a gas station, and was pretty skeptical. Inside has 24 small beer coolers, 21 devoted to beer. I don't know why there were ready to drink "Mudslide" and "Sex on the Beach" drinks were sitting next to the beer in the cooler though.
There is some sort of order to how the beer is arranged, but not done very well. Fair to good selection of beers from different countries, and a good amount of belgians, but only a few trappists. The beers made by the same brewery is kept together, but it is unorganized if you want to look for beers by the origin country. I was able to find a bottle of Unibroue 10. Don't know how long its been in the cooler but it is convered in dust.
No one offered to help me find anything, just regular gas station people working there. No evidence of a beer glassware section. Price wasn't unreasonable, but it was just a little overpriced compared to Central Market or Market Street.
Probably one of the best selections of beer closest to Grapevine.

Hands down the best selection I've seen in Texas yet. And I work one exit up the highway. Thank you Beer Advocate for leading me to this place. Basically, if you can get it in Texas, you can get it here.
It does look like some of the bottles have been there a while, but they're almost all refridgerated in relatively dark cases and anything really worth buying should last long enough to collect a little dust and still be okay anyway, right?
Don't bother asking for help. If you don't know what you're looking for when you go in, you won't come out any better off (except that you'll probably have some good beer, regardless of the lack of knowledgeable help, and that would inherently make you at least a little better off, but that's neither here nor there I suppose).
Price wise, it does seem to be a little steeper on sixers, maybe a dollar or two, but the bombers and other bigger bottles seem competitive enough. For example, I saw a couple bottles of DFH Chateau Jiahu at $16.00 per. That's $2-3 less than I've seen it elsewhere. Regardless, unless the prices are ridiculous, I'm shopping selection over price anyway. I guess if I was looking for something specific and more commonly available, I'd check World Market or Central Market first, but this the place to go if 1) you don't know what you want or 2) can't find it anywhere else.
Be sure to check out the small selection of glassware on your immediate right after entering the store.

If I could indulge myself for a moment. Nine years ago I used to live in Colleyville, TX. This was where I used to do my beer shopping from '95-'99. Then I moved back to MA and had not been back to Texas since. That changed this week as I had business in the Euless area. I got to visit some old places and decided to stop at Halls to bring a few bottles home. I was quite pleased to see this place noted on BA.
The selection of beer was pretty good. Lots of local Texas choices and some nice imported/Belgian offerings. Fairly good representation of Rogue and some of the other nationally recognized craft brewers.
Pricing was a little crazy. If you wanted a single.. Any single it was $4.50 Not really conducive to picking up some local stuff to bring home in the suitcase (truth be told I still bought some Rahr & sons and a Great Divide Oak Aged Yeti)
The help was pleasant but not really knowledgeable. I'd stop again if I were close but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit this location.
It was nice to see the old neighborhood again.

Halls, to put it simply, has the best selection in the Metroplex. If you want a specific beer and don't want to hunt for it, this is the place to go: if they don't carry it, it's not in the Metroplex. That's the upside: the downside is that they charge a premium for this selection. All their beer costs about 20% more than any of the other good Metroplex beer stores (Central Market, Mr. G's, etc...) and I can't ever recall seeing a sale at Hall's.
The staff is friendly enough, but I've not known them to be very knowledgeable. They're mostly young kids and the owner himself once told me he never touches beer: only Jack Daniels. On the upside, all the beer is kept cold (the only warm beers are part of special displays) and you can break sixers.
Hall's is also a deli, a wine shop, a convenience store and some sort of nursery/gardening supply store. I only ever go there for beer, but they appear to cater to many different crowds.
