Location Description:

The Filling Station is the ultimate dive burger place. It offers a bustling vibe, a friendly waitstaff, and unique burger and sandwich creations. Sarah's Supersport is a beef patty topped with peanut butter, peppered bacon, red onion, and lettuce ($9.35). Or try Erica's El Dorado, which comes with with blue cheese, grilled onions, and peppered bacon ($9.12). With more than 14 burgers and 17 "sedanwiches," this downtown lunch spot is a favorite among locals. Make no mistake -- the Filling Station will fill you up with more than burgers. A full menu of appetizers features items such as "the oil pan" -- a pile of fried pickles and onion rings with ranch dressing ($4.67) -- and bacon jalapeño cheese taters ($4.67). There are also a few salads to choose from, including the Mexican Cobb, a caesar, and the signature Sam's Spare Tire: a cheddar burger with fried onions and pickles served on a bed of spinach. The car motif is abundant, and patrons cram into tables and booths. Service is fast to get guests back to work and make room for more.
