Reviewed 13 November 2013 via mobile

My wife and I had just completed a hike in the Great Smoky Mountains just outside of Bryson City, North Carolina. An amazing beautiful mountain town. Enjoying the drive through town we were blessed to stumble upon the Filling Station and the sign outside that read, "have you had you Cuban today". The Cuban, soup, fries, and service were superb. Do not miss this one.

“Amazing Cuban!!”
Reviewed 8 November 2013 via mobile

This place is a small little deli in the center of the small town which we would drive out of our way for the Cuban.
The food was fresh and flavorful! We were so happy after eating that meal and still talk about it today. Amazing job, truly satisfied.

“Come Hungry!”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

You need an appetite to really enjoy the full measure of this deli. Come hungry and come early if its lunchtime (they will be busy). We had the Cuban (WOW!) and the special was a Chicken Casadia Melt (with BACON!!). Sweet Potato Fries are perfect. Keep your To-Go box. You will need it. The place has a great vibe. You are amazed at the amount of food that is produced by a handful of folks in a small kitchen. Great Show! Good People! We had to go for 2 days in a row. The menu just invites you back. You will likely have to get your order then head out for a picnic table or better, just head over to the Nantahala Brewery! But don't waste lunch on another ho hum diner. Come and see these guys.

“Great food, great people - a highlight of our trip”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

We took our kids over the weekend to ride the train on Saturday. After the ride was over, we headed to The Filling Station for lunch and am I glad we did. The Cuban lived up to its title as the best sandwich. My daughter, who is a picky eater, wanted a very basic, not on the menu sandwich and it was no problem. Be sure to add an order of fries to whatever you get. Best food I've had in a long time. The owner and his staff are also top notch. Walked back by the restaurant Sunday morning, saw the owner outside and he waved and greeted us like we had been life-long friends. You cannot go wrong here!
