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

Mondays at Petrol are $3 beers! (all of them...not just a select few) Maybe I shouldn't be spreading the word... but I usually get there at 5 when the doors open! This time of year they'll have a fire going in the backyard pit which is fun to gather around. The guys know me by name and are always courteous... More

Happened upon this place on a Sunday late afternoon when the restaurant we wanted to go to hadn't started serving dinner yet. Their loss our gain had burgers and I had a turkey sandwich with a side of orzo that was excellent. Try it but keep in mind you will probably be sitting outdoors so be casual.

Great craft brews the are always changing from week to week, the food is even better! The malt vinegar fries are a savory delight I dare you to finish a basket! The portions are enormous!

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.
