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

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!
