IMHO... The Petrol Station is the perfect, genuine beer bar. Authentic, unpretentious, real. Excellent beer choices along with great service. Small bar. Seating both indoors and outdoors.

This is a great place to enjoy good beer and great sandwiches. The burgers here are the best and so are the sandwiches. The fries are great. Atmosphere is fun and casual.

Loved it! I am kind of a Miiler Lite girl and they introduced me to some of the best beer I would have normally never tried. The burgers and fries were crazy good!

The beer selection was good, heavily skewed to IPA but I realize that is the flavor du jour, so no problem. The burgers, I had the Rango and it was a little slice of delicious. Great chill vibe out back on the deck on an awesome Sunday afternoon in late January in Houston- like only Houston does late January! 😎

Bring an appetite as way too much food for one person. Food fresh and cooked to perfection. The Rancor Burger was awesome! The T.B.A sandwich with orzo was delicious. Smoked turkey, bacon, avocado and balsamic onions on sourdough. Yum! Only reason I did not give 5 stars was due to the majority of the seating is on outside tables which... More

This was our first visit to Petrol Station. We went based on recommendations from friends. The menu is eclectic and spread across two walls. In other words, it is hard to read. The staff was not impatient, just less than helpful in recommending a meal selection. They do have a multitude of beer selections. I described to the bar tender/waitress... More

I love this neighborhood restaurant that we can walk to! Great food and non alcoholic options as well as beer. Their rose flavored lemonade is to die for! Soft pretzels are a must and for a healthy option, I love their kale salad with tahini dressing. Can't go wrong with any of their burgers though if you're a carnivore!

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
