Description: Now serving up fire roasted pizza, manciatta, paninis, pasta and more (with gluten-free pizza available), Fry's Spring Station is a restaurant that stays true to its service-friendly roots. The 1931 building that served as Fry's Spring Service Station for 70 years is now home to fresh gourmet food. Our version of Fry's Station is designed to be as delicious as it is service-driven.

“fine place, best for pizza, but salads, and italian entrees are good too”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

let me counter & say, the 2 managers are attentive (they even help bus tables abd pour refills)-the waitstaff hs always been upbeat and great. Pizza is unique- not cardboard college kind style- excellent components.Parents, the kids menu is finite but so reasonaable & incl. Pizza, a drink and dessert. If i had a suggestion, it would be to add a few domestic whines by the glass and for the draft, the ubiquitous blue moon and bud light for those that are not craft beer types. parking is avail. @ the gas station accross after 5 pm

“Meet your friends at Fry's Spring Station.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

Great place for college kids to meet. Hope off the UVA bus and walk right in, Limited menu but was good. Noisy, right on the street. Both outside and inside dining/drinking.

Great restaurant in what used to be a service station! Excellent selection of beers and wines and an interesting menu that includes superb pizzas.

“A surprising disappointment”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

Have enjoyed several lunches at this restaurant and think the salads are the best. However, I had a very disappointing experience when a business associate and I were seated and given menus, but never waited on. There were only 2 other tables occupied on the patio and, it appeared, 2 or 3 tables inside - so it was not busy. Drinks were on the other patio and inside tables, but waitstaff were nowhere to be found and we could hear the people at the other tables also complaining that there was no service. After 20 minutes we witnessed another couple leaving without being served and we left also. I hope this was an "off" day and the service will return. The other problem is VERY limited parking both onsite and on the street. We overheard another gentleman make a phone call and reschedule the location of his business lunch due to no parking.

“Excellent pizza and service. Best in Charlottesville.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012

This is one of the best pizza places around. When we go out for pizza this is where we most often go. This and Dr. Ho's Humble Pie in North Garden are the two best. The specialty pizzas are excellent and the salads are fresh and LARGE. The service is friendly and efficient.
