We waited 20 minutes to place our order. After another half hour I check on our order. They lost it and didn't seem to care, so we left.

Very cute establishment in downtown orange. The inside could use a little updating but the food and the service are outstanding and the prices are very reasonable. I ate there with my family after a day at Disneyland and it exceeded everyone's expectations.

Great outdoor patio. Long wait time on weekends. Old town Orange is always worth the wait and filling station is just the right outdoor breakfast experience. So the mediocre food does not really matter. If so, go to Watson's, blue frog or Kimmie"s. Fun walk afterward around the plaza and just the right start to a great day. 411 also... More

Been there mostly for breakfast or an early lunch. Mostly outdoor seating but a few indoors. View of street and college students and shoppers. Familes and couples. Menu has a lot of choices for breakfast or lunch.

We love going to the filing station because it's outdoor patio sitting is "Dog Friendly". The food awesome and the people are friendly.

He is an awesome local hangout, good for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Weather permitting, the best seating is on the large patio table. There are plenty of heaters and some tables even have a fire pit in the middle, so no problem if it's a little chilly. The eggs benedict delicious, as is the breakfast burrito. Portions are very big,... More

This is by far one of my favorite brunch places in Orange County. It's in the charming college area of Chapman and circle of Orange, has generous portions of food, strong coffee. an old-school-looking indoor seating option, and a lovely outdoor seating option overlooking the street near the circle.

I forget all the quaint places the Orange circle has to offer. This week we choose to eat at The Filling Station. We went early enough, 11:00 AM to avoid the lunch crowd and to our surprise, it was pretty busy. There were only 2 tables out in the patio for dining. One thing I love about this place the... More

Been wanting to try this place for some time and finally crossed it off the list today. Not quite up to my expectations after reading so many reviews over the past few months. This place reminds me of the long ago closed Belisles's in Garden Grove. Large portions for the price but simply unexceptional food. What's up with the city... More

We needed to find a place to eat with our dog while the house was tented for termites. The Filling Station was perfect. We were seated in a spot where we could keep our dog securely seated in the corner w/o bothering others around us. The waitress even brought us a bowl of water for our dog. The Filling Station...
