Fill 'er up

Open dining at The Station during Lapel's Village Fair

LAPEL, Ind. — People will be filling up at The Station in Lapel this Saturday, but it won’t be gas tanks they’ll be topping off – it will be their tummies.

The Station’s owner Scott Hersberger is offering open dining at his unique catering/event establishment starting at noon Saturday, during Lapel’s Village Fair.

The garage bay doors, stacks of tires, and automobilia of the building’s past history as a filling station are all still there, but the whole place now has the shine and ambience of a thoughtfully upscale eatery. The dining public can enjoy a full course meal either out underneath an umbrella on the patio, or inside where petroleum memorabilia rules the day. And Hersberger’s got the menu to fill the bill.

“I have loved to cook for years,” said Hersberger. His culinary creativity came by way of his grandmother, Mary Behrens. “She loved to cook. I watched her, growing up.” Hersberger communicates a true delight in the creative outlet that The Station affords him.

Hersberger said his ribs are among The Station’s most popular offerings. “I smoke them in applewood, then slow cook them with barbecue sauce – nice and tender,” said Hersberger. “It’s a sweet sauce, not too hot.”

Those ribs are one of four entrees, that Hersberger will be cooking up this weekend. Diners can choose from the ribs, Reuben panini sandwich, chopped chef’s salad, or made-to-order fried chicken. Along with the entrée, diners have a choice of cole slaw, potato salad, baked beans, macaroni and cheese, or chips. The meal comes with a beverage as well, and the whole package is only $10.

The Station is situated directly adjacent to the funeral home Hersberge has owned and operated on Main Street for 29 years. He purchased the old filling station in 1999, and it’s become his culinary creative base in the last few years. Hersberger converted the place into its new use in late 2010.
