Cap’n Crunch and Guinness Chocolate Milkshakes…Gotta Drink ‘Em All! Station Eats (Filling Station) – New Canaan, CT

Off the Hook: Guinness Chocolate Milkshake! Chili Fries in Back w/ Kristien ;)

Dyin’ for some good eats? Well, each month at Filling Station Co there’s a new milkshake and a new burger that have been paired to drop you to your knees and thank God for food. At the end of February we stopped in to get the Cap’n Crunch Milkshake before it was too late and, let us tell you, it didn’t disappoint at all. Kristien had a medium and I was asked what size I wanted. Puh-leeze! What size? Large, of course. When it comes to milkshakes, always order the large. It was thick, and it had the distinctive, yummy taste of Cap’n Crunch, and it rocked our worlds.

Behold: The Ultra Joe!!!

We took this time to try their sloppy joes, too.  Read about our first review here.  Kristien had the ultra joe, yummy goodness with station ‘slaw, pickles, and potato chips. She raved about its crispiness, the savory taste of the sloppy joe, and the kick of the slaw and pickles. I had mine with jalapeno and crunchy onions–also so damn good.

When we came back last week with Tom Madia, Kristien’s dad, I knew what I wanted, and I wanted it bad. Guinness Chocolate Milkshake. It’s really hard to explain how awesome this is, so you still have the whole month of March to try it. I can try, though…it’s just the right amount of chocolate, still the right thickness for a shake, then in the back of the flavor you get the maltiness of the Guinness that bursts through. Seth, the co-owner, explained that they boil down 30 bottles of Guinness Extra Stout to a syrup, then they combine that with the chocolate.  Hell yes.   It’s not overpowering, and we think that it’s better that way. I also tried their Buffalo Wing burger, made with their own secret formulation of a ketchup based buffalo sauce. They covered a very nicely cooked burger in the good stuff then piled it with juliened celery. The real deal has bleu cheese on it, but I can’t stomach that stuff. The burger was really great and the sauce added a nice, subtle heat.

I also put my name in to win that year of free lunches. Remember all the awesome stuff that’s going on in March to celebrate their birthday? All this talk of shakes and burgers has made us hungry. Think we gotta head out for some more Guinness Chocolate Shakes. ;)  Soon, too, you’ll be able to fill up in 3 Landmark Square in Stamford.
