What is the difference between "station" and "place"?
"Station" in this case refers to a small stand of something or a base that you make a quick stop at within a larger building or a place. These food "stations" can also be referred to as "places", but here he calls them "stations" to clarify that they are small places and available to quickly get food at. However, many people would not call these "stations" and would usually call them "places" instead. This is because a "station" usually describes a quick stopping place for transportation, or an official establishment like a police building. Ex: The train station is coming up. Ex: He works over at the police station.
