I love the Petrol Station. They have the best selection of microbrews in town and offer a great selection of delicious bar food as well. Everyone recommends the burgers but to me their single best dish is the pulled pork sandwich. Itís amazing. They have a wide variety of craft beers to choose from and itís always rotating. Seating inside can be hard to find but once youíre there, you stay for a while so itís no big deal. Great happy hour specials and fantastic special events make this a weekly hangout for me.

Can I just say that I love this place and Mora 2000, as I understand your want for TX beer, many of the local Houston places do focus on that and only Texas beer so I find it refreshing that we can get some excellent choices at The petrol Station.

This place is simply fantastic. The staff is great and will freely offer selection advice or a taste. The food is great and they are currently expanding their kitchen. There is more outside seating then indoor but as long as its not raining its fine.

One of my favorite places! The place itself is small, but great out door seating. Bartenders can be a bit rude but overall are nice and helpful. The burgers are the best in Houston in my opinion! Prices a very fair and selection is large and rotates frequently. Half pint available. I love this place!

This is a great little neighborhood place with great craft beer selection only rivaled by a few of the bigger "chain" places. The service is good if you are not a baby. Basically, the bartender is also the owner. He has been accused of being unfriendly, but I think itís funny really.The recent addition of food has made this place even more of a winner. A nice Texas meets England hearty menu to go well with a hearty brew. All in all, The Petrol is what you make it. So take some friends and make it a good time!

Very cool bar located in a neighborhood surrounded by houses. Service is always great and with it being a craft beer bar every time I go theirs always something new to try. Easily one if the best small bars in Houston.

Selection is excellent. This is a place to enjoy conversation with a date or fellow patrons. The atmosphere is very friendly. This is a hipster place but they could use some waitstaff to attend to outside patrons that donít want to leave their stuff unattended while ordering food or beverages. They have a limited food menu but are very creative in their selection. It tends to be high calorie but reasonable in price for the quantity. I feel very comfortable here. No pressure. They need more fans for cooling for the patios. It gets hot in the summer. Iím sure they will need more heating in the winter also but you always feel warmer after a glass of ale.

One of the best beer bars in town. Now with a larger tap selection they consistently have a different selection of amazing beers. Several rare beers tapped here monthly and host good events. The food is phenomenal and is always worth the wait. Have to stop here while in town, the only bar smack in the middle of a neighborhood.
