Love this spot, great craft beers (try the sa-tea) and new and creative menus (scottish eggs and crab grilled cheese ate both awesome). Nothing bad to say, nice place and great spot if u need a break from all the mainstream franchises everywhere.

I stopped here for dinner and a couple of beers while I was in Houston for business. The place isn't huge, and is a little dark, but I liked it quite a bit. They have a great beer selection. It's not huge, but they have around 30-40 beers on tap. They seem reasonably priced. Many of the pints are in... More

This place has a great selection of craft beers and is constantly rotating their taps. Food menu is also amazing, but the wait time can get a little long during peak hours.

A cool little joint in Garden Oaks, a neighborhood just outside of the 610 loop of Houston. Craft local beers and the best burgers in H-town in my opinion.

Went and not too busy. Ordered food only to be told there would be 90 minute wait. Moment on folks for hummus and burger?! We are older mature gay couple. Maybe prefer younger crowd. Or let us face waitress was tattoo covered airhead that probably did not know time of day. No problem. Will not go back. In past much... More

We went tonight and sat outside this funky Austin-like former gas station for dinner. Waited a bit for our burgers but that allowed us to enjoy the pleasant evening and very tasty dark double pecan beers. Burgers came perfectly cooked on delicious tasting buns. Mine was garnished with Stilton although it could have used twice as much. Fries were also... More

This out of the way spot is a good place to grab a burger and a pint. Beer selection is quite good. It is a small place with limited seating. If you go on a busy Saturday evening, you might have a hard time squeezing in and/or getting service. Try swinging by for a weekday lunch and you'll be well... More

You can feel the specter of the old gas station attendant that would ask you "regular or unleaded" as you lounge out at this cool spot tucked away in one of Houston's coolest neighborhoods. You won't get your windshield washed, or your oil checked but you will get some excellent grub, and great microbrews.

Way of where you'd think to look for a burger, Petrol Station offers a unusual setting. A patio and huge garden at the back full of trees and squirrels. What a nice place to visit, take a load off and enjoy great burgers and a good selection of beers. If you have some hours to spare and you are with... More

Came here during a slow hour with not that many customers to begin with to get a burger and a beer. Our beers were serve cold and immediatly. But the burgers literally took 70 min to be ready. People that came after us got their foods before us! I do not know if it could be a racial thing due... More
