Fran Scibelli's mission is to prepare fresh and carefully crafted food served in a manner that nurtures the soul and feeds the body. Her restaurant, Fran's Filling Station, achieves her mission by creating an inviting atmosphere and elevating traditional comfort foods. Dishes like herb-crusted trout paired with savory summer succotash and local peach chutney and braised short-ribs over mashed cauliflower are entrees that follow appetizers like crispy bacon-wrapped tater tots, making Fran's an eclectic and approachable upscale establishment.
Don't be fooled by the strip mall exterior, the dinner service at Fran's makes it a great spot for date nights and celebratory events. The taproom is stocked with a variety of beers on draft, wines, and spirits and specialty cocktails are perfect for an aperitif while waiting on a table. Locals love the lunch menu and rave about the soup and chowder options. Franwiches, burgers, tacos, and salads round out the mid-day offerings at an affordable price point. Kids eat free on Mondays and Tuesdays with the purchase of an adult entree, and on Wednesdays, Fran offers a great deal on burgers, fries, and a beer. Online reservations are available and encouraged, especially on weekends when the Station is the most popular.
