 2015 Best of the Best Award winner

Fran’s Filling Station was opened in summer 2009 by Fran Scibelli, who previously owned and operated Metropolitan Café and Metropolitan Bakery in South Park. Fran’s was created to fill a void -- providing inexpensive, eclectic dishes designed to satisfy both grazers and hearty eaters in a fun, welcoming and casual environment. The mission of the restaurant is to prepare fresh and carefully crafted food and to serve it in a manner that nurtures the spirit as well as the body, capturing the essential meaning of hospitality. Fran’s was awarded three stars by Helen Schwab in the Charlotte Observer. Fran’s cuisine is complemented by a carefully selected wine list, an extensive selection of craft beer & a full bar.
