The Dish: Beer Cheese Soup @ Diesel Filling Station

Though we’ve driven and walked by it dozens of times, Lindsey and I had never stopped by Diesel Filling Station, one of the few restaurants in our ‘hood we’d yet to try.  Relaxing on the patio and enjoying pints of Decatur’s own Wild Heaven Beer, we were blown away by the beer cheese soup.  Simple and probably not too different from simply eating a bowl of liquid cheese, it’s the ultimate comfort food and a great match for Wild Heaven’s hoppy Invocation, a Belgian-style golden ale. 

After the soup, we gave our best effort on Diesel’s Oh Dear God! Burger, a venison patty topped with just about everything.  Finishing up with their over-the-top fried chocolate cake, we enjoyed a surprisingly good dinner at a place that had been hiding in plain sight.
