One of the Best Hamburgers in the US?

Visited Heinnies because we read about it in a book touting the "Best Hamburgers" in the US. It was Indiana's lone hamburger identified in this book. So on this last trip to Elkhart we gave it a try. The Heinnies Burger was very good. We enjoyed it very much. We actually split the burger and... read more

Went to Heinnies with some friends and it wasn't as good as I was expecting. Food was good but not amazing and service was very slow. It's a fun place to go once but there are other places in Elkhart I'd rather go back to.

Had meetings in town and stopped here for dinner. Three had the Ribs and one the Haddock. All the meals were good. Nice Sides. Good beverage options, even if the waitress couldn't describe one beer from another. Service good and the variety was good and worth going back to try something else.

Our bed and breakfast association had our Christmas Celebration here and my food was very good! While we had only one waitress to serve all of us she did an amazing job and my food arrived piping hot and delicious! She managed to keep with everyone's drinks and food orders and a happy smile on her face the whole time!... More

This is a local favorite. It takes me back in time. The food is very good. I love the salads. Each night they have a different special. I usually get the fillet. It has always been excellent. They have a nice bar area that is separate from the main dinning room. Great service and food.

Food is really good, decor reminds one of a ponderosa steak house with Holstein tablecloths-don't let this stop you. Service is awesome! Wife had the filet, fire grilled to perfection with a gigantic baked potato. I had the deep fried haddock, normally stay away from deep fried fish; but the batter was so light and the fish seemed to melt... More
