In 2014 Abraham and his wife, Lorena, converted part of their busy gas station and convenience store into The Fairview Lounge Bar and Grill. Serving 5 star Yelp rated Peruvian cuisine, the menu is unlike any other in town. Abraham and Lorena conceived the idea for a part gas station bar & grill while visiting Lorena’s hometown in Peru. And it didn’t take long for it to become a favorite of many of the locals in Fairview Heights and the surrounding Metro East area.
It’s not every day that you can find a place where customers can fill up their gas tanks, and stop in for a chicken kebab and a cold one all in the same place. It’s not your typical bar and it’s definitely not your typical food. All dishes are family recipes with Lorena’s own flair added to every one. Each dish is made with fresh ingredients, the finest Peruvian spices, and always served with smile.
Come enjoy the family atmosphere, the unique Peruvian food, live music on the weekends, and glass of beer you’ve maybe never even heard of. Don’t worry we still have all of your favorites available too.
RARE GEM!! This is the most unique gas station you’ll ever stop at for more than just gas, a snicker bar and Mt Dew. Inside you will find a Peruvian restaurant and bar that are amazing!! They have over 200 beers to choose from and an extensive array of liquor. The atmosphere was very chill and relaxing. I ordered the Peruvian style kabobs and they were excellent!! The chicken was grilled to perfection and the marinade on it was delicious.
I can’t wait to come back and explore more of the food menu and try a few more different craft beers.
