Great selection of micro-brews

Loved the beer selection, and everything was extremely fresh, which is important with micro-brews. The food was excellent, but the kitchen was way behind even though the restaurant was about half-full. The servers were great, even if the food orders were delayed. The decor is "rustic", but I'm... read more

Stopped here while in Houston. Hidden in some of the more residential area of Houston, this place has an interesting feel. The Micro-Brews make this place better then it is. The inside is kind of tight, and the outside area needs to be better cleaned. It is supposed to have a dirty feel, but it shouldn't literally be dirty. The... More

This place is so incredibly cheap that they can't cough up the $116 one-time fee for a permit which allows customers to bring their dogs onto the patio! Wow, how lame. The owners clearly are not dog lovers so I'm not a Petrol Station lover.

Great off-the-beaten-track place. Extensive beer selection. Great food. Stopped by for a snack with friends and were very pleasantly surprised by the quality and variety of cheese and meat sampler. Included honeycomb and caperberries - nice surprises.

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.

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
