Another favorite breakfast place! I love diners! Especially this place. I love pancakes, waffles, pizzas bacons, milkshakes and they have everything here. The staff wearing diner uniforms, the comfy couches, push button for assistance, valet parking everything! I just love everything here.

As for the food, I got their waffle platter during this visit, big waffle with 2 bacons and sausages and it is delicious! Just the way I like it. Crunchy bacon, juicy sausage and crispy waffle is all I need to start a blessed Sunday. 128523128077🏻

One of my favorite breakfast place in Makati aside from Wildflour, since there is no parking along this street, you can have your car valet at the hotel beside this resto and you don't have to pay so much for valet just hand them 40-50 pesos and they are fine with that. 128522128077🏻

I am a bread guy more than rice especially bfast so I ordered this pancake platter with sausages and strips of bacon. This diner is just authentic. The feel, their food, everything is just perfectly dinery good. Pancakes are big and fluffy just as it should be, sausages are cooked well and also the crunchy bacons. They also have the best chocolate milkshake ever!!! It is like a melted ice cream I seriously did not feel even just a bit of ice in it. 128525128525128525

I should try their waffle next time and also their thin crust pizzas, actually I want to try everything from their menu, you know the feel when you are in a diner and it is like the whole menu is just perfect and you just want to try everything. #mayganonpo

Just dropped by to get a drink. We were just strolling around to find a good place for something quick. I didn't even know yet what the restaurant can offer and when I was skimming on the other reviews today, man I could've had some serious filling! Busy kasi sa new friend haha! Sorry naman. But it was a very artsy place. 60s or 70s vibe, it gives you a vintage American feel.

I caught myself rather staring at the bar. I love the setup. I'm more of a bar person. Those red, circular bar chairs, beer tap, long and curved bar counter with a lot of bottles sitting atop on one side, a barman behind it busy whipping a drink and a few iconic photos on the background wall were really very entertaining to look at, a visually beautiful distraction. I must pay another visit. 128517

Definitely coming back. Love their interiors, authentic vintage vibe and full of interesting displays. 128149128149 Their menu was primarily American but had some Filipino favorite offerings. We had the spicy cheese logs, Filling Station pizza, Sinatra's chicken pesto, and chocolate milkshake (this one I loved). Their milkshake order is big enough to split into two, which to me was a good thing because one glass was huge. Liked their pesto, pizza was okay - food was just fine in general. I'd come back to try the rest of the menu - if not that, then for their interiors. 128513

Now burgos st. At makati has its reputation. Ehem.... but just right in the middle of *establishments with neon signs hide this authentic american diner.
First of all, the ambiance was awesome. Food served american size, and their milkshake to die for. 9786

Love the shake and the pizza. The pasta's kinda bland and dry. 128546 Love the interior!!! There were life-sized figures and lots of wall decors. It was kinda pricey though and the staffs were unattentive. 128564

I recently went to a restobar that has everything going on it I remember it most for its interior than the food. Not sure if it's a good or a bad thing. Filling Station can be found in the so-called Red District in Makati Ave. On why it's called a gas station you have to go upstairs to find out.

First thing that I noticed is Elvis Presley, well a life-size figure of him. But he's not the only celebrity you can find here. At the end of the room you will see another figure, this time a replica of 1950s sexy bombshell, Marilyn Monroe in her famous flying skirt pose. And that's not the Marilyn Monroe there, there are also tons of pictures and posters of her covering the walls.

Then I noticed the vintage fuel pump machines lining up the hall, and that's the only time it made sense to me why it's called The Filling Station. But don't worry that's just the theme, you're not eating gas here hehe...

The fuel pump machines and the celebrity replicas are just two of the many vintage artifacts that are on display here. And they didn't forget to pimp the ceiling. In fact, there are some old bicycles hanging on the ceiling I worried a bit that they'd come loose and fall off or something (thank god they are safely secured up there).

Okay enough about the interior, let's talk about the food. My friends and I shared because food here is pricey. For appetizer we had a deconstructed nachos, which I had fun eating. Because it's deconstructed, it saved the tortilla from being soggy. Eating it is a lot of work though because you have to keep preparing it everytime.

Their Sinatra's Chicken Pesto (PHP398) pasta reminded me why I used to love pesto pasta. It's not swimming in oil but remains flavorful and has generous chunks of chicken. A serving is good for 2.

The Calzone Pizza (428) wasn't a hit. Though it's not something I'd call bad, I wasn't all crazy about it either.

Their Chocolate Milkshake (PHP280) now that's something special. It was creamy, sweet but not intense, I loved it.

I was surprised by one of my friends with a Chocolate Trio cake. The cake is thick, so dark it's almost black, and the icing is so dense it's almost like a soft candy. I liked it too.

The Filling Station has a quite extensive menu. I'd definitely go back to try more. Not anytime soon though because food is very pricey.

Had breakfast here on a Sunday morning and it is my first time here. I didn't know this place is located in a red light district so many creatures are waiting just outside this place. 128111

Ordered their waffle platter and I thought it is okay. Big waffle with 2 sausages and 2 bacons pretty generous with the serving for 250 pesos. Their porkchop is also thick and tasty and tasted good too. Chocolate milkshake is A must try.

They don't have parking here but you can valet your car to the guard beside this resto and just hand him any amount but this is VALET AT YOUR OWN RISK. 128517

We ordered carbonara and buffalo wings. Both tasted bland. A nice place for vintage lovers but if you want good food, go somewhere else.

My friends and I had just wrapped up a business meeting in the Rockwell area when we realized we were all pretty hungry. Then, one of my friends told us about this place in the red light of district of Makati that was good. Umm? Haha.

But off we went, and sure enough, there was this place called The Filling Station surrounded by all these other people having their own "business meetings" wink wink haha.

The place looks like an old-school American diner, the staff even dressed for the part. Cool! The menu consisted of burgers, sandwiches, brunch items, pasta, ribs, steaks and milkshakes. The price range is about 200-300 and up to 500-1k.

We got the beef pie, chicken pie, pesto pasta and the ribs. The servings are pretty big, good for sharing by 2 people. I enjoyed everything we ordered except the chicken pie. The spices/herbs or whatever in it was too overpowering and smelled foul for me. The ribs (my order because of course!!) was really yummy, went well with the gravy and was firm yet tender.

Would recommend to people in the area with big appetites and looking for American diner fare. Haha.

Been here the second time and for some reason their food lacks that certain punch to keep you coming back for more. Obviously its a haven for collectors of movie/music/super hero characters. One tip thought, the visitors are interesting while your eating beside them. Just listen intently and you can have a sitcom while eating your humongous orders.128540128076

Apart from the great food, filling station is a great place to hang out with your friends. Milkshakes are the best and A big BOO for pizza.

Many say that this is the best place to dine during the first blush of the day and I would agree to that. The clasic vibe would definitely lift up any one's mood no matter what time of the day.

DE SOTO - TENDERLOIN STEAK (P758)
Marinated tenderloin served with gravy and buttered vegetables which in my opinion was okay. The meat quality is similar to those that would cost you around P200-P300 and that you can also get from other places. The vegetables weren't fresh.

EDSEL JUMBO PORK CHOP (P698)
Another run-of-the-mill but tasted better than De Soto and served with garlic rice and buttered vegetables. I always look for that sweet-salty flavor with a little kick of lime from a grilled pork chop but this fell short.

STRAWBERRY SMOOTHIE (P168)
Thick stawberry milkshake and good serving size. This was definitely worth my money 128076

FROZEN BRAZO DE MERCEDES (P120)
One of the best desserts I've tried. Frozen Brazo on top of ice cream. 128074

The place has an extensive menu that I still would want to try. For now, I'm giving them three stars because the price is too high versus food quality.

The food was great but the price I don't think so. The prices range from 300-500 per meal and some food cost 1000 each. Drinks were a little expensive, I actually wanna try their smoothie but then it cost 280!!!
I would like to come back since the place looks great and has the 50's aura, but it would be nicer if they lower down their rates. I guess because the place is located around Burgos in Makati which a lot of foreigner stays that's why they double the price.
