Whiskey's Food & Spirits, located near the Hynes Convention Center, is a good old-fashioned barbecue spot-take it from the pig-shaped sign that declares 'Welcome to Hog Heaven'.

There is a healthy selection of whiskey behind the bar, and beer, margaritas and daiquiris for the not-so-hard-core drinkers. This establishment tends to draw a young crowd and can get a bit loud.
