Welcome to Fran's Filling Station. I opened this restaurant to fill a void: inexpensive, eclectic dishes designed to satisfy both grazers and hearty eaters in a fun, welcoming and casual environment. My mission is to prepare fresh and carefully crafted food and to serve it in a manner that nurtures the spirit as well as the body, capturing the essential meaning of hospitality. Happy Eating! -Fran Scibelli

This was the first time my wife and I eat at Fran's Filling Station. The whole experience was excellent and one of the better experiences we have had while living the last year in Charlotte. The Food and Ambiance were excellent, and the Service was good. We will definitely be coming back again.

Some of the best food we have had in a while coupled with great service. We had a wonderful time. Next time we will ask to sit in the back because we disnt know it was that large and we sat right by the door which was a little chilly. We will definitely go back!

Nothing special about the food, and we waited an exceptionally long time for the appetizer to arrive. It was tasty, but the "special" of braised beef and mac & cheese was awful. Our waitress seemed competent, but the kitchen was slow. This was a birthday dinner. A real disappointment.

Really enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. We started with parmesan garlic frites and they were very good. I had the beef tenderloin skewers with mashed potatoes and Caesar salad. My wife had the garlic shrimp and the small Big salad. Our daughter had the California burger. All three meals were very, very good. Our server was new and made a couple of mistakes but he will get those corrected I am sure. We just moved close by so it will not e long before we return.

First time diners for Restaurant Week 2018. Although the food was great and our waitress Jamie was outstanding, the large party that sat behind us were super loud and drunk which put a damper on our experience. Its funny how not one person said anything to them (manager, server, not a soul). F bombs for days! The entire front half of the restaurant just looked on as these guys (and ladies) drank and cursed like they owned the place. Its such a small setting that we all should've turned around and joined them, community style. I would recommend this restaurant for dinner and looking forward to trying out the brunch.

We went for restaurant week and really enjoyed our meal. The bacon wrapped tater tots were our favorite menu item.

We visited for Queens Feast restaurant week. The food itself was very good. No complaints about it at all. However we were seated at an odd table in the corner that was too long for 2 people (we couldn’t converse easily - we were too far from each other ). Our waiter was not particularly attentive or personable. Honestly if the server had been better, it would have made up for the odd seating arrangement. But sadly, the food was really the only good thing about our visit to Fran’s

It was crazy busy due to restaurant week. Fran was present checking in on guests. Very personal, nice touch. Food was great and fair price.

Had a great meal, with a variety of options to choose from that aren’t everywhere else. The atmosphere was perfect for catching up. The cocktails weren’t great but definitely did the trick. I’d go back.
