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

I dont get the big deal with this place...I have been twice recently and left both time. Let me start off by saying we have been on a quest to find the nest burger in Houston. I went to Yelp to help us with this task. We searched burgers...then narrowed that down by using the highest reviewed button. Petrol Staion... More

One of the best beer spots in Houston. It's hidden away in a neighborhood (Garden Oaks), but it's worth the drive off the beaten path. The food is excellent for bar food, in fact, it's good for any restaurant. The patio is excellent so it's a great place to go when the weather is nice.
