My husband and I went to the Filling Station for our anniversary. I had only been here for breakfast, and suggested we try dinner. The tilapia dinner was the best ever. My husband enjoyed his steak sandwich too. Our server was charming as was the setting. There was also a small bouquet of fresh flowers on the table. It was... More

We visited this restaurant from a friend's referral and found that this a very nice re saturated in a busy little community of Orange California. The wait is short especially during the lunch hour but the food was worth the wait. Atmosphere was very nice and service was good too. We will definitely return

We had a late dinner and sat outside. The weather was perfect and the food was excellent. My son had the tomato soup and loved it. I had the shrimp with tomatillo sauce and wow it was delish!

The Filling Station located in the corner of the street just a block away from the Orange circle, so it's perfectly located for a stroll around the vicinity after eating here. The name says it all "The Filling Station", no matter what you choose from the menu it's plenty enough and for me, after eating the Old Town Club, it... More

Following a fabulous breakfast we had the unfortunate issue of our car breaking down in their car park. The staff at the filling station were wonderful and let us sit in their restaurant while waiting for the tow truck - and even served us some of their fabulous apple pie and ice cream to soften the blow. Nice to see... More

Great atmosphere, great food, and very reasonable prices (avg $10). You can sit inside or outside. They seem to be famous for breakfast and serve it all day. It used to be a gas station and they've made it into a great cafe. It was rated one of the best burgers in Orange County. If we lived here it's a... More

I was just at the filling station today as my Mom and my entire family have been going there since they opened. My Mom and I ate there today and after we were done we headed back to the car and I realized I left my sun glasses on the table. My Mom also knew that I left them there... More

Three of us had dinner on the patio of this charming restaurant in downtown Orange. Lots of antique shops, great spot to people watch. Full menu, including breakfast all day. Beer and wine. Two of us had the Mexican salad with grilled chicken, very tasty mix of greens, yellow corn, black beans, chunks of fresh avocado, tomato, and jalapeño slices... More
