Great beer selection, well-known place--check it out

This was the second time I've been to the Petrol Station on a business trip to Houston. Scorching hot outside of course. They set up something like 8 fans to move the air and it helps a lot. As does a cold beer, and then another one, and so on.... I didn't have any complaint about the time of... read more

This is my favorite place for craft beer in the U.S. They have a great rotating selection of craft beer on tap, including plenty of IPAs. They also happen to make awesome burgers and fries. You will not regret trying it. Order everything at the bar.

I'm a regular customer. They know me by name and what types of beer I prefer. What keeps me coming back is a combination of elements. Obviously the rotating beer list is exceptional, and the prices for a pint are reasonable. Get your growler filled here for cheaper than buying a high end six pack at the store. I know... More

Had the rancor burger and garlic parm fries. Very good burger but next time I'd ask for it medium. Good beer selection. Very small inside. Bartenders were nice, attentive.

My husband is a die hard burger enthusiast and he'd been raving about the burgers at Petrol. I gave it a shot and tried the lamb burger. That burger is topped with cucumber and yogurt sauce. It was literally was one of the most delicious burgers I've ever had. My husband gets the Rancor burger famous for its size and... More

The good: Wide variety of beers with rotating menu. Nice outdoor space. Very nice menu selections and generally good food. The BAD: Always out of many beer selections that show up on the boards. Not dog friendly. Food takes an outrageously long time - over 2 hours for a burger at times. Food quality varies.. sometimes great, other times just... More

Great pub/bar in a quiet suburban area. Bit of a wait for food, but the quality and size of portion is more than worth the wait.

I LOVE this spot!! Everything about this place works IMO. Each time I've come here the service has been awesome. Staff very friendly & funny too! They make great suggestions & have don't have a nasty attitude when asking questions or for a sample. There's a brew option for even the pickiest of beer fans. I've tried a great bit... 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.
