Noticed restaurant while walking around Old Town Orange and were attracted by the large number of people at the terrace and waiting to get seated. Our wait was only 5 minutes and we were seated under a large tree. my French Dip was excellent and my wife's vegetarian Quesadilla was huge and tasty. Overall good tasty food and service.
Came back next day for breakfast. our omelets, one vegetarian and one bacon/sausage were excellent.
Will definitely com back next time in Old Town Orange.

A very nice place - come early if you don't have a reservation, because it does seem to get good and busy, and with good reason. Great food, not cheap, but you will not be disappointed here!

Located at the corner of Glassell Street and Maple Avenue, the Filling Station Café is housed in a converted gas station in Old Town Orange, north of the traffic circle at Glassell and Chapman Avenue.

NOTE that parking is always a challenge in Old Town Orange, so you should allow yourself extra time to find parking in one of the public lots or along the street.

The Filling Station is known for their breakfasts, and they do serve breakfast all day. My family, however, was here for lunch. Among the items we ordered were their roast turkey sandwich (w/Gruyere cheese and cranberry sauce), French dip sandwich (w/Swiss cheese), Tippy Style tuna sandwich (w/avocado, crushed red pepper and grilled jalapeño), ahi tuna burger and barbecue burger. Every item received rave reviews from our party.

The small but attractive interior dining area is well-kept, the popular outdoor patio is both spacious and dog-friendly, the staff is friendly and efficient, and the environment appeals to adults and families alike. The prices, while not inexpensive, are in line with what you’ll find in Old Town Orange. I look forward to my next visit!

Took some folks from CA and OH here who can come for our daughters wedding plus hte bridal couple.
Most ordered burgers and so did I but I ordered it naked.For once I did not have to explain that naked means no bun but all else on it. One of our guests order the Salmon Rock Shrimp dish and said he has a problem with it.. So good he did not want to make a pig of himself by just gobbling it up. The Philly Steak and Cheese is loaded up. The future son in law ordered chicken parm - never said anything about it but that is because his head was down scarfing it up.
Burgers were each done hte way the person ordered it. From med rare to well done. Sweet potato fries are crispy. We did not have room left over for dessert - darn!
WE had reservations from here in GA and they were ready and waiting for us. I had asked to be seated inside, in the back room and we were.
Our server was attentive but not intrusive and drinks were replenished without asking.
Our guests were impressed with the place, even if parking is a bit hard to find when they are really busy.
Have never been here in the past that there was not traffic in and out constantly and this time was no different.
