Stop into this friendly small town cafe when visiting Bishop Hill. We stopped for lunch. The grilled chicken, grilled cheese, and BLY sandwiches we had were all tasty!

Home made soups, great sandwiches and perfectly fried pickles. Great place to eat after tromping around Bishop Hill for a couple hours.

The Filling Station is a small local restautant enjoyed by tourist and local people alike. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. The food is excellent. The pies are mmmmmmmmmmmmm good. The service is the best anyone could ask for. You won't go away hungry.
