Station 7

Last Friday Carolyn and I finally ate at Station 7, the new firehouse-themed restaurant in Pittsville.  Wow–I’m definitely going to be a regular!

Station 7 (the restaurant) is actually at what was once Station 7 (the firehouse).  If I remember right, it was built in 1929 and you can tell it’s a firehouse.  They have firemen’s jackets hanging on the walls along with pictures and other firefighter memorabilia.  The lights are especially cool–they have firemen’s helmets hanging from the ceiling with light bulbs inside them.  Nice touch.

We got chili for an appetizer, and I was hooked after the first bite.  It’s served with red tortilla chips, an interesting but tasty choice to accompany chili.  Of course, there weren’t enough chips to finish it off, so we ate the last half with spoons.  I think I’ll probably get their chili every time I go there.  They have nachos that they make with their chili, so maybe I’ll go with that.

For a main dish, it was hard to narrow down the choices because everything looked so good.  They had several seafood dishes, and I’m a big fan of good Eastern Shore seafood, but it just didn’t seem like a seafood kind of place.  Most of their menu consists of smoked & BBQ stuff.  Carolyn and I both eventually settled on the smoked stripped BBQ pork sandwich.  I can hardly stand to even write about it now–reliving the experience is making me drool like the babies I watched in the nursery on Sunday.  It was so tender, and their BBQ sauce (they call it “hog sauce”) had a unique and quickly addictive flavor.  The sandwich was so moist that the bottom piece of bread quickly became soggy, which was mildly annoying, but it was hard to care because the sandwich was so good.

The sandwich came with fries, which were good but not great.  Of course, only McDonald’s and Arby’s actually have great fries–everyone else’s are okay at best.

You can find Station 7 in downtown Pittsville.  I guess that’s really all the direction you need.  It’s on the left.  You’ll smell it as you get closer.  (Just a tip: they’re closed on Sundays.)  You can download the menu here.

  1. HEY! I also ate an incredibly tasty pulled-pork BBQ sandwich on Friday!

    This one was at the Appalachian Restaurant and Brewery on the Gettysburg Battlefield, right across from the Lutheran Theological Seminary.

    The way you describe the bottom of the bun? Ditto.
    (Did I just say “Ditto?” I can hear “Unchained Melody” now.)

  2. Yeah, thanks for putting that song in my head.

    Dude, get a blog. And tell us all about your trip to Gettysburg on Friday.

  3. Hi Nathan:

    I enjoyed the interview with Darren. I’ve known Darren for years. He’s a great guy and awesome friend. I’m new to the blogging world and loving it, thus far.

  4. Jumaine,

    Thanks for stopping by! I look forward to checking out your blog. And yeah, Darren’s alright! Actually I haven’t known him that long, but you don’t have to be around him much to see his heart for Christ.

    Happy blogging!
