The Filling Station: Reimagining American Bar Food

By Alyse Mier The Filling Station is quite the institution, dedicated to making the best bar food in the area. A long-time fixture in Miami, it recently found a new home in Oakland Park, it’s still dedicated to taking the typical hamburger and making it anything but typical. With over 60 food items to choose from on the menu and a selection of over 30 craft beers, it’s no doubt you’ll need a few minutes to process everything. Below is a list of some must have menu items: The Lazy Sunday An unusual blend of S’tart sour beer and Sprite makes for one of the most refreshing drinks, which is perfect for this South Florida weather. The Beer Flight Having trouble navigating through the beer options? Bartender, Mitchell Feigeles, will create a personalized beer flight based on your preferred flavor profile. He’ll also create a flight of the best creations brewed by local breweries. Sweet Corn Fritters Imagine popcorn reinvented. These sweet corn fritters are perfect little portions of creamed corn fried to golden perfection and served with their made in house Savannah Sauce. Porky Tots The Filling Station’s claim to fame is their tots. Their beloved Porky Tots are fried to perfection with a crunchy, salty surface and a steamy, fluffy filling. The tots are blanketed with a layer of smoked pulled pork, cheddar cheese sauce and sour cream. The Burgatti Burger Aptly named, the Burgatti because the chef thought of anything you could possibly want or need in a burger. This Sargento award-winning burger is topped with two slices of pepper jack cheese, two slices of cheddar cheese, peppered bacon, balsamic caramelized red onions, garlicky mustardy mayo and a sunny side up egg.
