The Filling Station is a self-service restaurant offering "Handmade" Americana style food.  It is our goal to give our customers great tasting, quality food, in a family friendly environment. Each meal is made to order! 

We offer burgers, hand-cut fries, and our famous Spark Plugs...all white meat, buffalo chicken tenders.  Please feel free to browse our menu and prices below.  

Call in orders are available for pick up (352-625-0119), but we'd love to meet you, so come by and enjoy our dining room or have your order to go! 

Our Mission: The Filling Station is an extension of Help Agency of the Forest, Inc. Help Agency works with children, teens, and their families who live in extreme poverty in the Ocala National Forest.  Each member of our team is a volunteer and is here to serve the Forest community.

In the near future Help Agency will offer a Culinary Arts School at their Camp Sozo location.  The Filling Station will offer job training to students from the surrounding neighborhoods, and will give practical application to our Culinary Arts Students.  During their time working in the restaurant they will acquire skills and gain work experience that will help them become more employable.  

It is our goal to not only help each student with their skill set, but to offer them the opportunity to learn the value of integrity and a good work ethic. The profits of The Filling Station will help keep this progam growing!
