“Real comfort food”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

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.

“Outstanding Full Breakfast! Grilled Apple Fritter ... YUMM!!”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

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 donuts are terrific, and the grilled homemade apple fritter is yummy and utterly addictive. The omelets are large, tasty and can be ordered either "flat" or "fluffy." Excellent homefries, and everything comes exactly as you ordered it (e.g., my well-done hash was always perfectly well-done).

“Great Doughnuts”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

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 half doughnuts which drew some stern stares from the locals in line behind me.

“Great Spot for Breakfast”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

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.

“Comfort Food - Local Favorite”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

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.
