If I lived closer I would probably be a regular. Small selection but usually very high quality beers. Great local atmosphere. Famous for their grub. Recommended.

Went here for the first time recently. I love this place! The beer on tap is excellent. The food is excellent. The customer service was excellent as well. I have only two things that need improvement. The cleanliness of the establishment was questionable as well as the parking. Those two issues are common for excellent watering holes. I canít wait to go back here.

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.

Service and food can be a bit slow when crowded...otherwise excellent all around, and good pints of micros for $4, hard to beat that. Petrol is meant for enjoying a good beer, and it deliveres.

Nice place, good selection of quality taps. Food was good, my wife loved the lamb burger, cooked perfectly to her liking....rare. I had the meatloaf sandwich....ok, but more like a oval hamburger patty with meatloaf fixinsí in it, but still tasty. Fries were greasy and soggy...need work.
Prices were reasonable, a good value. staff was friendly and helpful with samples and suggestions. We went on Saturday morning around 1145. It was not real crowded, just a few locals it appeared. By the time we left at 130pm, it was getting full.
Overall, a good place, unique atmosphere and location, a nice experience. We will visit again.

Selection is limited, but there are always great brews on tap. Food is awesome, I havenít had a burger this good in a long time. They always have cool events going on ( add them on facebook). They are expanding the number of taps they have and they are in the process of making a brew house. They fill growlers and have casks on tap from time to time as well. Great atmosphere, great people, great food and beer. My favorite place to drink in Houston.

Ok, this place is a good 45 minute drive from my house and STILL it is my favorite place to visit in the Houston metro area. The food is as good as Hobbit Cafe (and from what I understand, a former chef used to work there). The ambiance is completely small interior bar, with huge backyard and front/side patios, hophead heavy taps of the best according to Ratebeer and Beer Advocate and always several local Texas start-up brews. Their dedicated fans have made them Stoneís Most Bitter Bar winner three years in a row (I did my part too). Iíve been there over a few dozen times and have met great folks each time. Music comes from the retro jimi hendrix variety playlist along with a vinyl turntable of great albums (unless they got rid of this lately). Depending on when you arrive and place your food order, you may have to wait a while (like 45 - 90 minutes at peak times) for the food, but time it right, and itís hard to beat. Go Saturday or Sunday for lunch and you can usually sit at the bar. So do these guys know their beer? Ummm, yes. Do they know their food? Yep. Do they need more inside space? Yes. Go when everyone is recovering from the night before. Like I said, I drive 45 minutes and this is THE best place in the entire area to be at if you are a hopheap and foodie. I love this place!!

Small food menu, but meals were good. Location is an old gas station renovated into a restaurant/bar. Not a large selection of beer on tap, but pretty good choices to choose from. Nice outside area in the back. Service is poor because of too little staff. Staff is however friendly and helpful. Bring cash, it will take you forever to close out a card on a busy night.

This place could get two different kinds of ratings: an awesome place early in the day when no ones around but jesus, turns unbearable at night, takes 20-30 mins to order a beer and you have to shout at the top of your lungs at the same time .. . Great burger, horrible horrible fries. One bathroom for the entire place, took 30 mins just to pee. place has grow to big for its boots.. i will only go again if in the area and if they expand the bathrooms, servers, and taps.. but the 10 taps they do have were quality, mostly big beers- no sessions... they do the occasion cask and the parkings a joke, maybe 7 spots then all down the streets. ..
