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 comes right up there on the first page...great.
We went Saturday..we came in from the side street (which is the main way to this address from the freeway) and couldnt find a sign on the building to even see if we were in the right place or not. It was a strange crowd to say the least. We searched around looking like we were lost. Couldnt find a menu the bar was a mess of people tryinmg to order, you couldnt see all the scribbled chaulk writtings on the wall behind the bar. So we left...thinking this cant be the Petrol Station.
We eventually went back home and straight to Yelp to see where we went wrong...but we didnt THAT was Petrol Station! Wow,,,I guess we will try again.
We made the pilgrimage back through the NW Houston neighborhood to the same location. Understandably they werent as busy as they were on saturday. We did notice how messy the place was..the patio looked like a tornado went thru there and even the main room was just filthy.
I ask fo a menu and they said it was on the wall behind them, they dont have a menu to hand out. Uuuuhhmmm ok. Well only if we could see the wall much less read the horrible penmanship of which it was written. All I was thing was...what happened to that menu that I saw pictured on the Yelp pics...are we sure we are at the right place?
Finally I noticed a smalled chaulk board with a small food menu including "Cheeseburger $4.50". Thats it as far a burgers go. What happened to the four speciality burghers on that printed menu? The sandwiches, the starters, the soups and salads, there was even kids portions on there!? In fact what happened to the menu at all?!
We just go a bad vibe in this place...the bartenters were a little too rough for us as well.
