Filling stations were once known for an entirely different kind of fuel than what they serve at The Filling Station Smokehouse in Doncaster town centre, but that hasn’t stopped this American joint from firing up their kitchen engines. Their grills are revved up and ready to go with a selection of steaks, their smokers are pumping out the good stuff into pulled pork and brisket, and their oil is up to frying speed. Drive on down to East Laith Gate now to get your fill.
Went for birthday tea, asked for a amaretto sours cocktail (my fave) but they didn't have any lemon juice. So couldn't have that. Ordered meals I had chicken and ribs combo, when all 4 meals arrived no slaw with any as advertised asked for it and she brought a tiny pot. Everyone ate there meals no complaints but I couldn't eat hardly any, chicken (in panko crumbs) so bland it was in eadable. Ribs so fatty had to leave most, and chips well they were chips!! I did speak to server who took price off bill. Have ate there before and was OK so God knows what happened. But all in all worst birthday tea ever no cocktail or food!!!!
Great food but was told top 3 on menu was included in the deal but was then charged £2 when we finished not good
On arrival we were welcomed warmly by the waitress and barmaid and showed to our reserved table that didn't really need reserving as the place was practically empty.took awhile for her to come over to take our drinks order but then drinks arrived quickly.but then we were left for a considerable time before our food order was taken,resulting in us nearly finishing our drinks. I went to find the waitress a couple of times to tell her we were ready to order. After ordering it seemed like an eternity for our order to arrive. The food was excellent on a plus size. Seemed the waitress/barmaid was stretched as she was working alone. From entering the restaraunt to recieving our meal it totalled an hour and a half.food good though
Deep in the South of the US of A, there is a saying – ‘all hat and no cows’ – to denote a pretender, someone who talks the talk but doesn’t walk the walk. In Doncaster, they’d translate it as ‘all fur coat and no knickers’, and at The Filling Station Smokehouse on East Laith Gate, they know how important it is to have the food to match the menu. They’d not blow smoke up your jacksie: instead, they’d stick it in the meat, with a range of smoked, low and slow-style authentic American cooking that brings a taste of Dallas to Donny town centre.
The menu, as one might expect at The Filling Station Smokehouse, makes extensive use of the smoker. They prepare and marinate meats, before sticking them in the hickory-wood smoker for up to 16 hours to ensure that the flavour seeps in and the meat falls of the bone. This is as authentic a slice of Americana as one will find in Doncaster, so book a table at their restaurant on East Laith Gate in the town centre now.
