The highly anticipated Foster’s Filling Station, located at 313 Main St. in downtown Sulphur Springs, quietly unlocked their doors last week in what’s referred to in the restaurant world as a “soft opening”. Foster’s is owned and operated by restaurateur Art Foster with Foster’s Place Restaurant & Pub located in Pickton, Texas.
The new craft beer and burger concept designed by Art is conveniently located in downtown Sulphur Springs next to Pioneer Cafe. Foster has redesigned the interior space and kitchen with a complete rework focusing not only on a fine selection of craft beers but a condensed menu of amazing new burgers featuring a local ground beef from Rail 19 a custom meat processing facility located just south of Sulphur Springs on Highway 19.
Foster’s extensive knowledge of craft beers and obsession with creating the perfect burger led him to design a new concept for the quaint space on Main Street. Front Porch News caught up with Logan Vaughan, local foodie and Vice President of Chad’s Media, on opening day of Foster’s new concept.
“I met Art years ago at his restaurant in Pickton, and one of the things I loved about his place there was his ability to recommend new craft beers that my palate preferred, and genuine interest in introducing his customers to new foods and drinks,” Vaughan commented as dined on one of the new burgers called the “Hot & Bothered”. The burger was topped with smoked bacon, Havarti cheese, jalapenos and a house made horseradish cream sauce.
“This burger is fantastic!” Vaughan said.
Although the menu is burger-centric, the new concept offers a selection of salads, sandwiches, and starters as well as a couple side options like White Cheddar Mac & Cheese, and Bleu Cheese Slaw as well as the staple burger accompaniment, French fries.
Foster’s Filling Station is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 11 am – 9:30 pm and Friday & Saturday from 11 am till 10:30 pm
