“Come Hungry!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

You need an appetite to really enjoy the full measure of this deli. Come hungry and come early if its lunchtime (they will be busy). We had the Cuban (WOW!) and the special was a Chicken Casadia Melt (with BACON!!). Sweet Potato Fries are perfect. Keep your To-Go box. You will need it. The place has a great vibe. You are amazed at the amount of food that is produced by a handful of folks in a small kitchen. Great Show! Good People! We had to go for 2 days in a row. The menu just invites you back. You will likely have to get your order then head out for a picnic table or better, just head over to the Nantahala Brewery! But don't waste lunch on another ho hum diner. Come and see these guys.

“Great food, great people - a highlight of our trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

We took our kids over the weekend to ride the train on Saturday. After the ride was over, we headed to The Filling Station for lunch and am I glad we did. The Cuban lived up to its title as the best sandwich. My daughter, who is a picky eater, wanted a very basic, not on the menu sandwich and it was no problem. Be sure to add an order of fries to whatever you get. Best food I've had in a long time. The owner and his staff are also top notch. Walked back by the restaurant Sunday morning, saw the owner outside and he waved and greeted us like we had been life-long friends. You cannot go wrong here!

“Come Hungry and Feast your Eyes !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

Well, I am going to Highly Recommend this place for Fantastic Deli Sandwiches and goodies.We were tipped
Off about it by employees at Harrah's when we mentioned
That we were going to Bryson City for a couple of hours, and Where was a good place to Eat ? But in general, Bryson City
Is a Very cool place to visit, Especially if you love Trains and
An old time little Main Street atmosphere. If you don't know
WHO Horace Kephart was, he is buried here up the hill, and was a prolific outdoor writer and camping enthusiast, who had a big part in getting this area of the Appalachian's made into a historic park, to be preserved for future generations. His book
"Our Southern Highlanders" is a Terrific Read, and he talks
About the History and Culture of this little known section of our Nation, and even get's into Moonshine or "Mountain Dew", and some of the interesting politic's of that. Also, you will
See some things relating to Ole
Popcorn Sutton, who is another
Famous Local around here.
The small Train Museum is worth a look, and the train tours
Are supposed to be really nice,
We have always come at the wrong time to take one. (Check
Ahead of time for the schedule )
You KNOW you are in North Carolina when the waitress meets you at the door and say's
"Sorry Sir, but we just ran out
Of Grits" ! But we still got hash browns though" . The only thing
Missing at the Filling Station Deli Sub Shop is indoor seating,
You will have to get your sandwich or sub to go, and sit
Outside or in the little square next door. But you sure won't
Be disappointed with the food,
"GOOD EATS" found here!'
