The Filling Station is a burger joint in New Canaan, CT offering
“Juicy hamburgers, delicious chickpea burgers and snappy hot dogs cooked to order, loads of toppings, crispy hot French fries washed down with thick rich milkshakes and ice cold beers. Great prices. Good fun.”
You can spot them by the orange and blue awning, and matching seats outside.
Every month the Filling Station has a Burger of the Month, so we ordered the Burger of the Month – Cinco de Mayo burger – a chorizo patty with queso blanco, lime cilantro crema, lettuce and tomato. The sauce was a little bland, but the chorizo was delicious.
I’m a simple burger gal so I ordered a hamburger with lettuce, tomato and raw onions. The hamburger was like a typical burger. The chili fries were delicious – I would just order these alone, or maybe a sloppy joe. The meat was flavorful and had a little kick – which I don’t mind. The fries were crispy and together – a delicious combo.

Overall, decent burgers. A little on the greasy side. I bet they’d be great broiled.
Side Tip: Eat outside, or else you’ll walk out smelling like burgers and fries. (True)
