Petrol Station is the kind of craft beer bar that you go to when you want to be able to actually have a conversation. The brew selection is one-of-a-kind, the patio is lush and green, and the crowd is friendly. I've never tried anything on the menu (beer or food wise) that I didn't absolutely love.

And I do not like hamburgers... but these ones are really "eadable"! To make it go, a nice selection of micro-beers, all sort, including nice IPA's. Service is slow, like the atmosphere, and this is a good change from the usual Houston place: nobody is pushing you out to the check-out with a forced grin. Very relax atmosphere. Noise is... More

This, my second visit to the Petrol Station, was totally enjoyable. Service (order at the bar) was a little backed up but as usual the people behind the bar know the beers and are quick to process your order once placed. Also as usual, the selection of craft beers on tap is excellent. The outdoor seating is pleasant. I was... More

It holds a nice environment to mingle with friends. The majority of the seating here is outside consisting of round smaller tables and larger picnic tables. There are hanging lights, fans, and bug spray available for the guests that adds to the ambiance. Its an easy place for a beer and burger to hang out casually with friends.

I was back in Houston this month so my daughter brought me here for a burger. Best burger I've had in a long time. This burger was cooked perfectly. I had mine topped with cheddar cheese lettuce and tomato, along with fresh cut fries with a malt vinager and mayo sauce it was delicious. My daughters had cheese, lettuce, tomato... More

Not the most original post. I'm new to Houston and a friend recommend this place if you want good beer. Had a local IPA (delicious) and the straight up normal burger. Both very good. There are no waiters. You order and pay before hand. If you don't mind that, then it's a solid choice for a get together.

Service was excruciatingly slow, but it was excellent! Small batch beer made the wait worthwhile. Parking was a challenge but the food made up for it.

Was suggested by friends.. Glad we went. The beer choices were great. Tried a few on tap. Thumbs up. Sandwiches were very good. Great service!

It was so much fun- we stopped in for dinner and had a ball. The interior is tiny, but the staff is super friendly. Once we ordered food & drink from the bar, they gave us a number & we headed out to the back patio. They had a fire pit going and we enjoyed the time outside, the dirt... 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
