Fresh food and amazing desserts. Excellent staff. I brought my staff here for lunch. We had a private room. They cater as well.

Located downtown Dalton and beside the tracks. The food is hardy and great! It is buffet style. It is pricey but better quality of food than other buffet type places around here. You also get to choose your dessert and the choices are many!

I was very impressed with their chicken salad. Today was the first day I've eaten there and I would definitely try it again. The portions were perfect and the sides were fresh. I've heard they have an amazing weekend lunch so I'm ready to go back.

We have used the Filling Station for large group gathering and even selected the menu.We have also used their catering service and it is excellent. Recently I went by and selected To-Go meals for sick friends. The Filling Station always has rave reviews. It is an excellent restaurant with superior foods!

Real food folks, just an excellent buffet. We drive an hour and 10 minutes each way just to eat here. Everything tastes homemade, including the desserts! Go here and eat, you will not be disappointed!

Cafeteria style old time southern cooking. Mostly a lunch crowd place. Usually typical fare such as green beans, corn, fried chicken, etc. Desert choices as well. Very good food but not a lot of variety from day to day. Excellent place to eat occasionally. This is an old gas station that has been converted and lots of memorabilia inside. The... More

All they serve is lunch, buffet style. Very tasty, not bland like some buffets. $10 for everything and I'm glad they don't serve alcohol.

Best buffet food experience ever! Don't usually expect much from all-you-can-eat but this place is outstanding. The food was as close to home cooking as I've ever had at a restaurant. Definitely will be returning.

I enjoy good Southern Homestyle cooking and the Filling Station has it. A self-serve buffet has ample vegtable and entre offerings. A salad bar is offered or soup of the day. There is endless tea and soft drinks. To complete the meal is a selection of pie slices and desserts. I loved the old gas station motif. The Filling Station... More
