“Best of: Off the Beaten Track ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Went this fun place the other day with work friends and fell in love with it so much I took my wife back the next night.
Fillin' Station seats 40 max (according to the sign inside) but they raise up a big garage door to additional, open-air seating amidst beautiful, quaint surroundings. The staff treat you like a neighbor. The live music every night was good and is usually different any night you go. Very talented musicians grace the performing area.
Yes, the burgers are delicious. Order one, you must try it. They serve only beer and a few Barefoot brand wines. I cannot wait to go back and spend some serious time socializing with great friends old and new, eat/drink great food/drink, and listen to quality music. All while taking in some beautiful country scenery.

“Best Burger Anywhere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

The Fillin' Station is known locally for it's friendly atmosphere and great music. I have been there a few times with friends to visit, and have a burger. Every time the hand patted burgers are excellent and well cooked. The music is always good and the atmosphere is pleasant.
Would recommend to anyone looking for a night out with friends. Patio is open when weather permits, and the surrounding area is safe and clean.

“Ah-mazing Music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The Fillin Station (which...oddly is not pictured, it's Carl's Perfect Pig that's pictured here) is a fantastic local dive for drinks a bite to eat. The burgers are frickin-phenominal. I have never heard bad or even mediocre music here. Patrick, the owner, being formerly a harmonica player for some big names has connections in the music biz, and the bill never disappoints. I'm a huge blues and jazz fan and at this little bar way out in BFE is some of the best around.

You can expect to pay regular-restaurant prices for drinks. The giant garage door which comprises one wall to the bar is open during warm weather and there's additional seating on the patio. Hours are odd during the week, so maybe call before stopping by. Also, there's a "no minors after 7:30pm" rule. Just FYI.
