Bill’s Filling Station – Wilton Manors, Florida is CLOSED

Bill's Filling Station - Wilton Manors, Florida

Bill’s Filling Station is not a bar I would normally frequent. It’s a gay bar but it wouldn’t stop me from enjoying some great food there (smoking’s also allowed). Chef Ron Kerr who is Chef at Bill’s Filling Station is also Chef at Georgie’s Alibi (which won Best Burger at the Riverwalk Trust Burger Battle) right across the street.

While Georgie’s Burgers are grilled, the Burgers at Bill’s are cooked on a flat top. Bill’s is a bar first so the menu is not very large.

Since I am a big fan of Potato Skins I decide to start with an order of those. The Skins were a solid affair and I eat just one of the 3 because it’s looking like I’m gonna be placing a “Biggish” order. I tack on an order of Onion Rings and their Pulled Pork Taco too.

Great freshly made Onion Rings and the Pulled Pork Taco, well…it was pretty amazing. Bill’s uses a Flour Tortilla (not my favorite) and then tops it with Melted Cheese and then tops it with the Slow Roasted Pork and THEN top its with Pickled Red Onions (this I love). I hate them because this was so good.

The Burger here is a double, 2 quarter pound patties to be exact. You can add Cheese and Bacon for a small fee, I added only Cheese. One bite and I couldn’t believe what I was tasting. The Burger just devastated me. I was blown away.

It was cooked perfectly. It was in fact a Perfect Burger Specimen. If you don’t take my word for it, or even if you do, you must try this Burger. You really must.

    On a Sunday, 3-17-12, St. Patrick’s Day. I drove all the way there from Kendall and entered the establishment. At around 6 PM It was completely empty. There was no one to greet us. It looked deserted. Perhaps business picks up in the late evening, but it is far from being a busy restaurant. I learned a long time ago not to eat a place where you do not see the food being moved. Busy place means fresh food. Now, I could be wrong. Maybe this was an isolated incident. I drove around to numerous places after that looking for a bite to eat and it was hard to find parking due to all the green revelry. For example, the 15th Street Fishery was bursting at the seams. We ended up at a CG Burgers on Federal Highway. I’m sorry, but it just doesn’t seem to me that this place in Wilton Manors is a good place to eat. The lack of a crowd on a Sunday speaks volumes.

    • Sorry Jorge but it has great food. The Chef at Bill’s Filling Station also owns the BITE Gastrotruck.

    This place serves my favorite burger ever. I get mine with a garden, cheddar, jalapeños and chipotle mayo. I then eat it over the fresh cut fries as the molten cheese drips all over them and boom, cheese fries.

    The best part is that all Monday, and before 6 every day I can get my burger, fries, and a beer for six bucks. Sometimes if I’m running late they’ll be nice and give me the special anyway. The staff and regulars are all amazing, as well.

    I love their pork tacos, but I never have a chance to eat them because of the call of the burger. I want one now.
