My other half and I decided to try Station 2 for dinner per the recommendation of another foodie. We went at dinner time around 6:30 pm.
Food: If you like something different and unique then Station 2 is the restaurant for you. They have a ton of unique burger, salads, and they even have sausage options too. Everything arrived presentable and hot. I was happy when I took a bite of my burger and it felt like it just came of the grill (I like to eat my side dishes before I eat my main dish).
Food Options: If you are not a fan of red meat or meat, Station 2 has you covered. They offer salads, sausages, turkey burgers and black bean burgers. They also offer gluten free bread as well as other side dishes beyond chips and french fries.
Staff: Everyone at Station 2 was friendly and very helpful. There was a new cook working the day we went so we actually received a bigger portion size of the fruit crisp desert.
Décor: The theme of the restaurant went with the name. You can actually tell that the building use to be a fire station from the outside and the inside. The outside was enhanced to make it look up to date. The inside had fire fighter suits, fire extinguishers and plaques on the wall. The table that we were sitting at actually showed where the fire pole use to be.
Drinks: Station 2 has a ton of drink options. They have floats, juices, sodas, milkshakes, lemonades, teas and adult milkshakes. I opted for a non adult milkshake and got the chocolate covered strawberry. This was my first time receiving a milkshake that really tasted like the name. The milkshake was thick and very smooth. You could tell that it was made from ice cream and not custard, or had ice added to it for thickness.
Price: Each burger unless you opt for extra toppings or different bread will start at $10. The price does include a side but $10 is still pretty high for a burger and a side. Since the restaurant resides in Richmond be prepared to pay two taxes (food and city tax). I believe for us two entrees, drinks, and desert came up to $33 not including tax.
Location: Station 2 is located downtown off of East Main Street. Anyone who knows anything about trying to find a parking space in Downtown Richmond knows why this is a con. We were lucky enough to find an open parking spot right at the corner of the restaurant.
Wait: Since everything is cooked and made to order please be prepared to wait. After placing are order we waited at least thirty minutes to receive are meal. After placing the order for desert we waited another ten minutes. The wait may have been due to a new cook in the kitchen, but thirty minutes after ordering is still a long time.
In my opinion if you are tight with money, not into trying something different and have no patience to wait, I would not recommend Station 2. If you do not mind waiting, like to try something different and like to splurge on food, Station 2 is the restaurant for you. I would recommend Station 2 to friends and family. I plan to come back to try one of their floats and sausage dishes.
