The Filling Station Menu - White Lake, Michigan

Why did you decide to start offering gluten free options at The Filling Station?

Several of our family members have celiac disease. The Filling Station has given us an opportunity to guarantee our loved ones and our community a safe dining experience.

We have always been passionate about our allergen procedures and training our teams working in the restaurant industry because we believe everyone should be able to eat out safely.

What are your gluten free/ allergen procedures?

We minimize cross contact with a dedicated gluten free prep space and dedicated gluten free utensils. Our kitchen staff must wash their hands and use fresh gloves when they begin a gluten free order. Our kitchen staff must also re-wash hands and apply new gloves if at anytime there is a chance of cross contamination.

Is your menu free from other allergens as well? What oil do you use for frying?

We do not use peanuts anywhere in our back kitchen, and our standard fryer uses a soy oil blend. In addition, we offer wagyu tallow as a gluten free frying alternative. Proteins are cooked in clarified butter, but we can cook in oil as a dairy-free alternative. For those avoiding meat, we offer a portabella mushroom burger and a black bean burger as as well.

What kind of gluten free options are on The Filling Station menu?

All of our sides are gluten free if you specify this preference so we are alerted to use our dedicated gluten free fryer (fries, tater tots, sweet potato waffle fries, house-made chips, hand-cut tallow fries, and coleslaw).

Additionally, the following burgers are gluten free if you order as a lettuce wrap or on our gluten free bun; beef, pork, lamb, turkey, salmon, duck, mushroom, and carnivore (wagyu, wild boar, elk & bison). We are focused on using high quality proteins free from hormones and antibiotics. 

Our house salad, loaded tots, and spinach dip are gluten free starters, and most of our milkshakes (minus cookies & cream and cheesecake) are delicious gluten free dessert options.

What We Ordered

My husband ordered the Spinach Artichoke Stuffed Portabella Burger. It’s available gluten free, and it is DELICIOUS. His sandwich came with waffle fries and they were cooked to perfection.

I ordered a basic cheeseburger with smoked gouda cheese, and it did not disappoint. Life is always better with tater tots, in my opinion. I really appreciated that our burgers came with “allergy” picks, to help notate they were gluten free.

Does The Filling Station offer gluten free beer or hard ciders?

We are currently in the licensing process to produce and serve our very own crafted hard cider! We will have 4 taps with offerings such as “Pina Popper” (pineapple & chipotle cider) and “Baba Yaga” (barrel aged blueberry almond cider)

The Filling Station also offers mocktails. My husband ordered the “Sweet Mocktail,” which was reminiscent of the Freckled Lemonade at Red Robin. I ordered the Orange Fanta, which of course is always wonderful.

What else would you like my readers to know about your business?

We offer BOGO Free on all full sized burgers and handhelds Wednesday – Sunday from 2pm-4pm. The offer is dine in only and one burger per person. We also offer catering, and would love to be able to feed your friends and family!

Where’s the best place for customers to park? 

We have a dedicated parking lot outside of our restaurant.
