We decided to try here after reading reviews. The kids loved the donuts and said they were the best donuts ever. Our breakfast sandwiches were very good with bacon over flowing. The prices were so reasonable and the service was wonderful. Will definitely visit again when in the area.

We went here for the first time to check it out on our way back from Hershey. We have seen it many times before, but never stopped in. The food was very good, and at a good price. Typical diner food, if that is what you are looking for. This place is not very big in size, so I would... More

We stopped in the Filling Station to have breakfast before our drive home. Heard the apple fritters were good so we decided to check em out. Service was quick and the food was hot. We got the fritter "to go". We enjoyed the fritter and would go back to eat here again.

We've always had good breakfast here, love the grilled apple fritters and sticky buns. Good eggs & homefries! Some nice dinner items too. Fast service!! My only complaint here is if something isn't prepared properly (deep fried fish was way over done) they'll make excuses for it and won't take any accountability for it. In fact I was made to... More

A genuine home-town diner. You can't go wrong ordering waffles with fresh strawberries or fluffy omelets or a burger - it's all good. The waitresses are super-friendly, the prices are great and the coffee just keeps on coming. No frills, just good honest fare.

For our 5-night stay in Hershey, we ended-up eating at the Filling Station three mornings and all three breakfasts were consistently great. It was totally worth driving the few extra minutes into Palmyra. The inside of the restaurant is diner-like and a bit rundown, but what it lacks in atmosphere is more than outweighed by the homemade goodness. The fresh-made... More

I grew up in Annville and have since moved away (Via the US Navy), but every time I go home I stop by early and get doughnuts for my family. I have never eaten a meal there but the doughnuts are great. Around the holidays, when my extended family is home I have ended up ordering a dozen and a... More

Very Good Breakfast food with a wide variety of choices. It is a local favorite and does get busy in the mornings. Great fresh donuts that are not thawed out or travel 100 miles to get to their location. It is an older style 80s restaurant that could use some updating but it is clean.

The service staff is friendly. The food is well prepared. The menu is limited to diner-style comfort foods. Frequently there is a wait to get a table. Often it is difficult to find parking. Obviously a favorite of the local. Try the grilled-sticky ala mode.

I've been coming here for over 20 years and will probably never stop. All the servers and cooks are great, the owners are good people, and the food is fantastic. I always get the Daily Meat Special and a doughnut if I wake up early enough. Definitely a must visit.
