Fran's Filling Station
Book your next event with us
Fran’s is one of the best restaurants in Charlotte! Love this place- absolutely delicious. We had the lasagna, paella seafood pasta, herb crusted mountain trout and beef stew. One dish better than the next. The calamari and brussels sprouts were great apps too!
We love Fran, and Fran's Filling Station. Always reliable, warm, homey, delicious.
We love Frans! Some of the best food in Charlotte.
Divine! The freshest ingredients always.
My neighborhood gem!
Absolutely delicious! Fabulous food, great atmosphere, wonderful service. Don't miss this hidden gem in Charlotte!
Our server was very sweet, and the saving grace of the experience. How we their menus were outdated, if you are removing things from the menu.. print a new one. There were still summer cocktails on the menu in the middle of November. It just felt thoughtless. The food was okay, basic is the best I can use to describe it. The portions were also quite small.
Fran’s used to be a good spot for us. Convenient location in the heart of Dilworth. The food is always very good. However, this time the service was horrible. We felt rushed and server hovered like they couldn’t get us to leave fast enough. Not sure I will go back which is disappointing.
Ordered Salmon just pan seared and spinach sauté
Salmon was a little overcooked.
My friend ordered the chicken dish not cooked to good .
Did get complimentary coffee. Offered carrot cake.
Would definitely return
Great food and service. This was our second time and we will definitely come back on future trips to Charlotte!
Went for my birthday around 6:00 with 5 other people, was greeted and seated as soon as we walked in. The restaurant is nicely decorated and the wait staff was very nice and attentive. I was given a glass of champagne for my birthday which was really nice of them to do. I definitely recommend eating there.
I love Frans. It feels like home. The food is always delicious
Small and homey, Fran's Filling Station has good, home-cooked meals at reasonable prices. (Careful with buying alcoholic drinks, though, they're expensive.)
Best trout I have ever eaten!
Second time to Fran’s. Food was amazing and service was outstanding. I rated the noise level higher because we were in the room behind the bar and it was quiet until another large party was seating beside us. But not that it bothered us. We will be back!
It was amazing! Our server was new but knowledgeable and I loved everything I ate!
Very attentive and helpful waiter named Phillip
We enjoyed the wait staff and the creative, delicious food in a wonderfully casual setting.
I remarked to my friend, as we left lunch, that you can always depend on Fran's for good food and a place to have a pleasant conversation. Regular menu offers plenty and specials always add an interesting twist. Thankful to Fran's for being in the neighborhood and wish it continued success.
One of my favorite places. Always has been consistent across the board. I would not hesitate to recommend
Food was so great !!! Excellent service
Can’t wait to come back
Great specials - deviled eggs and swordfish!
Super Phil, our waiter, is one of the best in the city!
Owner Fran was gracious and hospitable as always! JV
This is always my 'go to' first choice of restaurants in Dilworth. Fran's hands on approach to food cooking and prep is excellent. Even tho we am now living in South CLT, we will always return to Fran's as one of our favorites.
Mazing amazing food!!
Music could be a bit louder/livelier
Wonderful dining experience. Great food. Great team.
Great place! Loved the food, the server was phenomenal. Owner came by, and was great too!
Friends is one of our go-to date night spots. And it never disappoints. Food is really good and service is always very well prepared and committed.
The Asian calamari was tasty. The lamb burger had very little taste. Disappointed. The peach cobbler was very good. Charge me for ice cubes in my gin & tonic. That is a show stopper. Won't be back after that.
It was wonderful. We have visited Fran’s a lot and the food, service and atmosphere were all very good, as usual
Great food and nice casual atmosphere. Service is excellent.
Food was excellent, as was the service! Recommend highly and we will definitely be back!
Visited Fran's during restaurant week. The food was great. Service was good. Love the atmosphere.
I would go back again.
The food was so good last Saturday, I went back and got the same meal again! Latin wedge salad, salmon, and butterscotch Bodino. Perfect again!
Love the food, servers and atmosphere! We come every restaurant week because it's a great value! We also come when it's not restaurant week as well because tje food is great. I've never had a bad meal there and it is very refreshing to always see an owner there. Fran is kind, generous and friendly. She found out that the table next to us had someone sitting there who was having a birthday and organized a complimentary glass of prosecco for the person. Love this place!
Always a great food experience! Fran is the "hostess w/the MOSTEST"!!!
Some friends and I made reservations for my birthday dinner. Excellent choice!!! The eclectic food was superb & the staff was eager to please. The best calamari I ever had!!!! That fig flat bread was everything!!!!
Check them out.. You won't be disappointed!!!
There was a special menu for Queen’s feast, but one of the best dinners I have had in a long time. Everyone at the table loved their meal. Curried muscles were great. Salads were terrific (but they always are at Fran’s). The salmon was perfectly cooked & her special meatballs were great. And the desserts...I had the Italian butterscotch Bodino and the three others I dined with her all had coconut cake. The desserts were perfection. Thanks Fran, as always.
Celebrating a birthday. Small, cozy & great food.
Great server, loved the food and would go back.
Everyone tried something different we had the chicken Milanese, meatballs, the trout and the tuna special. It all was delicious. We sat outside on her beautiful patio. Fran came by and checked on us. It was a perfect evening!
Fun very casual. Good for families.
