I had gotten pretty hungry and didn't want to roll on over the the 2011 Bates County Fair without filling up first. The Filling Station had only been open for about 4 weeks so I was pretty eager to check it out! Man, did I ever make the right choice!
The Filling Station serves locally raised corn-fed beef that is melt-in-your-mouth GOOD! They've got quite a menu from great steaks, burgers and broasted chicken to sandwiches, burn ends and more kinds of fries than you can name!
I was a little short on cash so I kept to the sandwich portion of the menu and ordered up the prime rib sandwich and some good iced tea! I was so impressed I darn near ordered another one to go! Tender, flavorful, juicy and just about perfect! It was so good I called up a buddy I heard was headed to the Bates County Fair to see the Rodeo and told him to stop in too!
I'd really like to see this business thrive, the service was great, the food was fantastic and they got pictures of John Wayne on the wall! Can't get much better than that!
My buddy stopped in on his way to the Bates County Fair and had the same thing I did, he said "I think I inhaled it, that was good"! He also ordered the sweet potato fries which were also amazing!
