How this place is still in business I will never know. Day time bartender ok. Night time bartenders are terrible! The hacking lady is so rude, not to mention she probably couldn't make it working at a waffle house. The burgers used to be

Went there this weekend for the USA soccer match.

When we were closing out, my friend got her tab and someone (presumably the waitress) had written "BITCH" underneath her name. Now, my friend is one of the nicest, kindest people I know, so one wonders what kind of bad day the person that wrote this was having.

The owner came over, apologised and said he'd review the security tape to see who wrote it. I'm not going to hold my breath there. There was only one waitress working at the time, so it's not rocket science.

Needless to say, we won't be returning to Cahill's.

Pros: Good Guinness

Finding a low-key bar on Washington can sometimes prove difficult - but Cahill's is always low-key, all of the time. So low-key, it is the only bar I've ever been to without makeup on (hey, it was Post-Ike, they had A/C, and I didn't!). It's a sports bar/dive bar/restaurant all housed in an old Victorian mansion. They have a full bar, but it's really a beer-drinking kind of place. They have a few on tap, including a couple of the local brewery, St. Arnold's, and my fave - Corona Light - is always ice cold.

For the best service, sit at the bar - the bartenders are friendly, and always ready to refill your drink. From the bar, you can see numerous TVs, so whatever your sport, you're all set. There are also several wooden tables throughout the restaurant, and a large patio with plastic tables and chairs out back. The furniture has definitely seen better days, but it kinda fits in with the "dive bar" feel.

I don't usually order burgers, but after tasting someone else's one time, that is all I ever order here. I don't even know what else is on the menu, because every time I go, everyone I'm with orders a burger. They'll make the burger however you like it - they have choices of bacon, ranch, different types of cheese, etc.; but I always get the regular ??Hammerburger? burger with cheddar. The burger always comes hot off the grill, and everything melts together in your mouth - the bun is slightly sweet, and it all works together. It comes with your choice of homemade fries or onion rings. Both are delicious ?? onion rings are cooked perfectly crisp with the right amount of coating.

Overall, it??s a great afternoon hangout ?? especially after a hurricane, when they have A/C (and a working kitchen) and you don??t!

Pros: great burgers, very casual, lots of parking

Cons: kinda dirty

I have to agree. The waiters/bartenders are not that friendly, at least when I have been there.

I have been to Cahills on several occasions and have not had any problems at all. I think that someone who doesnt believe in tipping appropriately should definitely be called out for it, and should be embarassed to be out in public. Going out is a luxury, not a necessity, and if you cant behave yourself and dont want to tip, go to the corner store, grab a six pack, order a pizza, and sit at home by yourself.

I have been going to Cahills for about 8 years now and I have never written a review. The bartenders by far are some of the best in Houston and I for one was Happy to see Johnny, Nadia and Mike all there last night. They Keep our drinks full while providing great company. Any one who tips $7 on a $55.00 tab is just plain cheap. $8.25 is only 15% and they are worth alot more. The service that Marty's bartenders give is some of the best in Houston. Thats why I will always go back, and the burgers aren't bad either.

*****Update on Situation*****

I've been in contact with the management of Cahill's and they are very upset about the situation and are handling it in a very appropriate manner. The individual who claimed to be the owner was just another bartender. Still an unfortunate situation, but at least they are trying to make good.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It is very disappointing for me to write this review, because until yesterday I thought Cahills was a good neighborhood bar. But after this one incident I don't think I'll ever step foot in the establishment again.

I was hanging out at the bar on Sat night and it was last call, I walked up to the bar ordered one last drink and asked to close out my tab. I signed my credit card receipt and went back to my table to finish up.

I hear the bartender shouting extremely loud from across the bar, "Was there a problem with the service? How can you only tip $7 on a $50 tab? We tip 20% at this bar or you don't come at all." I realize that the bartender was directing this towards me. I told him if he is going to complain about the tip, I wouldn't give him anything then. He gets right up into my face and says "What did you say to me?" So I repeated what I had said and he proceeded to kick me out of the bar and threatened to call the police.

OK, let's look at this here. A $7 tip on a $50 tab is a very acceptable tip, especially when I didn't have the bartender mix any fancy drinks, I got up from my table to retreive my drinks (nobody was bringing them out to my table) and he only poured 3 rounds of drinks. Since when did 20% become the standard for tipping, last time I checked 20% was for service above and beyond and I felt I didn't receive service of any kind.

So for a bartender to call me out publically and try to embarrass me in front of the entire bar, is UNACCEPTABLE. I demanded to talk to the manager and a very unhappy man came up to me and said he was the owner and I needed to leave immediately. So, apparently this was not just a rogue bartender acting out of line, but this type of behavior is condoned by the owner.

Just something to think about....this is not the type of place I would want to hang out at when there are many great bars in the area.

Pros: Great Place to View Arrogant Bartenders

Cons: You Get to Interact With The Arrogant Bartenders

The young lady that works in the day time is a great bartender... I believe she's pregnant too, but that young lady will hustle! She had 7 tables all at once come in and she stayed on top of it! She had a smile the whole time and a great personalitiy! We had chkin fried chiken with mash potatoes and a salad for under $8 bucks... what a deal... Cahill's has improved so much over the past ten years I been going there. I do reccommend going in for a quick, affordable, freindly lunch....

Cahills is everything a neighborhood bar should be. The food is excellent. The drinks are reasonably priced. There is a really nice covered porch with comfortable chairs for the smokers. The porch was popular even before the mayor tried to turn Houston into Salt Lake City. There is usually good music on the juke box during the busy times.
I first visited Cahills in 2006 during my try-every-bar-in-Houson phase. When I started on the Shepherd/Durham corridor, I went to Cahills first because coworkers had recommended it. I was also curious to see if any of the celebrity sighting rumors were true. I'm still not sure about the rumors but I guess most celebrities aren't out at 1 am on a weeknight except for basketball players. I did think that I saw Stephen Hawking coming out of the restroom one night , but I had drunk a lot of beer.
Anyway Cahills became one of my regular stops on the way home at night. My favorite bartender is Johnny.
He is one of the most efficient bartenders I've ever seen. He is a local celebrity in his own right and a favorite of all the regulars. He is a singer/songwriter and a Texas history buff. He is always knowlegeable about current events and local and world politics and can hold his own in a coversation on almost any subject.
Cahills is great place to spend an evening with friends or a sunday afternoon watching football. Or, if you are lost in the area, stop by and ask directions. Everyone speaks English. Use the bathroom while you're there too.

Me and my girlfriend are up at Cahills every thursday night. The jalapeno burger is the best in town and the homemade chips are great! The bartenders always keep our drinks full and provide great service. If you are able to get a steak on thursday you should try them. Also Cahills is dog friendly and you will always see people with there dogs on the back patio. The only con is that they need tvs on the patio.

so i kept hearing all of these wonderful things about this neighborhood bar and restaurant. so, finally i go to check it out on a saturday with a couple girlfriends during the day. the bartender (older/dumpy/female/brown hair) is hacking all over the place and even IN our drinks!!!...totally discusting...along with her lack of customer service in general. so, then i get coaxed into stopping in at this place with a larger group of friends another time one evening during the week, and this same barteneder chick is not working, but hanging out up there, hammering drink after drink, stumbling all over the place, and finally falling down. nice and classy! my friends swear this place is better than that which i've experienced, but i don't think i will ever be back.

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.

Few beers on tap, large circular bar dominates and allows the friendly bar staff to keep an eye on everyone. Pool table, customer tables, Golden Tee. Food OK, parking adequate because this place is rarely crowded. Friendly, stop by, it could easily be my local if I lived nearby.

While you can't go wrong w/any of the items off the menu, one that you have to try is the Ranch Burger w/chips. Definitely not one for the faint of heart (or arteries) this burger is only made better by the seasoned chips they serve on the side. This is a good place to go if you want to avoid long waits or want a great relaxed location for happy hour.

My wife and I happened upon Cahills last week. The environment was nice and relaxed and the waitstaff was friendly. The menu, while limited, is affordable and quite good. When the weather is nice, thy and catch a table outside.
