Review: Bier Station


Aaaaaahhhh the 1970s. This era gave us wide collars, bell bottoms, tacky prints, and most importantly disco music. While our Frequent Fryer team wasn’t alive during this time we felt the full effect of the 70’s as patrons of our local roller skating rink during our middle school days. This is where we learned iconic disco dances like the YMCA and the Hustle in addition to perfecting our limbo technique. So when we found out about the delicacy that is disco fries, we just had give them a try.

If you are unfamiliar with disco fries, they’re basically your average cheese fry with the added bonus of delicious gravy. And you all know how much we love gravy. At Bier Station, they make their disco fries with pork pan gravy, beer cheese, bacon, and green onion.

Warning: You will want to find the nearest disco roller skating rink after a taste of these fries.

Surprisingly, the fries really stand out in this dish. The seasoning is excellent, hitting key notes of savory, spicy, and sweet. We believe it even works for “spice-sensitive” individuals, as weak as they may be. It’s a type of heat that starts off slow and builds the more you eat, making it a perfect pair with a cold beer.

The rest of the dish was good. If we were going to be really picky, we would say the gravy/cheese sauce was a little bland, but honestly that didn’t stop us. This was the perfect dish to eat with friends, conversation, and drinks on the patio.

The way this gravy cascades over these fries is truly awe inspiring. Equivalent to the Sistine Chapel.

Overall, these fries earn their highest scores for environment, experience, and style/flair. Value was pretty good- an entire order was $6. We also gave these fries a bonus point for being well-seasoned, something that is surprisingly missing from fries at other restaurants. See the complete breakdown and overall rating below:
