Before I moved to Queen City I made a bucket list of restaurants to try. Fran’s Filling Station was on that list. I had heard great things about this lil spot in Dilworth, but never would have imagined it would exceed every expectation I had! From the excellent customer service, to the food….I give credit where credit is well deserved. And Fran’s has a customer for life. Right as we sat down to order, the menu took me for surprise. I’m really indecisive at times, and this menu, OMG, I wanted it ALL!!!!!!! No joke, like I wish they had a sampler platter for each item on the menu to try because I totally would’ve ordered it. That’s the fatty in me, haha! Everything looked amazing and all their food is fresh and carefully crafted to “serve it in a way that nurtures the spirit and body”. And you can definitely tell that so much love and passion went into these dishes.
Pictured from left to right: Let’s talk about these sexy lil tots! Bacon wrapped Tater Tot sampler duo includes Jalapeno bacon wrapped sweet potatoes with a tobasco honey glaze…and the rosemary black pepper glazed tots. I don’t know what heaven is like but I assume it would be like eating the lil pieces of heaven on a stick! I could’ve ordered multiple orders but I tried to contain myself because I ordered other items as well. Next up is the “New South Fried Chicken Sandwich” with pepper jelly and goat cheese on a……. wait for it…….PRETZEL BUN!!! It is the perfect balance of salty and sweet, and very savory! One of the top 3 sandwiches I have had in Charlotte, hands down! Chicken is breaded to perfection and the goat cheese is tangy and adds some depth of flavor.
