DON'T GET DELIVERY!!!!.
I don 't normally post reviews but in this instance b/c of the horrible service it was warranted. I have been to the filling station many times and the food/service was awesome, but I made the mistake of ordering delivery from them and the experience was terrible. Bottom line.....It took two (2) hours to get the food delivered and when it arrived all the food was cold and squished flat. DO NOT ORDER DELIVERY FROM THE FILLING STATION. WORST SERVICE EVER!
Frustrating filling machine.
I completely agree with everything in the last post. And I too thought and wish it could be a regular but no dice. The first time I visited was awesome and lived up to everything i heard about a great burger and being a cool place. I had awesome thick tasty wings and my girl was pleased and thoroughly enjoyed her burger and ample side of cheese fries. HOWEVER, having the approval from my lady we revisited and were unpleasantly surprised. We loved the decor, the games, pool tables but its not enough to overcome the service and now the bad food. There?s nothing worse that you can say about a restaurant than the food is bad, so I won?t, but its close. I begged my girl to go back on 3 different occasions hoping, but now I have lost the desire to go back. Its frustrating because you know it could be so much better. But now that the side if fries consist of 6 large fries and a hardened cheese like topping that seems like dried up cheese whiz and my once plump tasty wings have turned into skinny shriveled up crust with Tabasco sauce poured over the top and the burger falls short of Checkers drive through, then its hard to want to go back especially knowing the lack of service that?s been consistent since the first time. I guess this place is more of a local watering hole than a good little restaurant. It?s too bad because it was so great the first time.
Not even close....
After reading the hype for years and the place even being endorsed by Jim Phillips, I figured Johnny's Filling Station was going to be a rare treat. Boy, that couldn't be farther from the truth. I've never had worse service in my life. I can understand the kitchen being slammed (although the place was half empty), but when you try to flag down the waitress (after your order has been in for over an hour) and she yells at you before you have a chance to say a single word, there's something wrong. Although she had no problem chatting with the guys at the next table over for 20 minutes. I can live with this, though, I was there for the burger! The Best Burger in Orlando! Well, let me tell you, it's nowhere close. Stay home, make a burger patty, throw it in a frying pan, and throw it on the cheapest bun you can buy at the store and you'll pretty much have the same sandwich. Do people just not know any better? There was nothing defining about this burger that made ti stand out from the pack. This place was a total let down. At least the decor was pretty cool (gotta love the signed Guided By Voices poster).
Great place to go with indoor and outdoor seating, which Orlando does not have enough of. Good Food, Good Drink Specials, and sometimes good music. Occasionally play country which I could do without.
