Delicious Reubens

Appropriately named, on the south side of Goshen is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant with delicious Reuben sandwiches. Actually all of their sandwiches are very good. I suggest you get the curly fried potato. And leave room for a piece of pie. My last visit a few weeks ago I had some pecan pie... read more

Love their hometown feeling and home cooked meals. Their black bottom cupcake is to die for. I would recommend this place to everyone.

I no longer live in Indiana, but I do recommend going to a classic like South Side Soda Shop. I used to go when I was younger, and it is just an overall great experience in a place like Goshen. I say get some ice cream, a burger, and a piece of pie and walk out of there happy. The... More

We arrived late in the day for a slice of pie. Was initially intrigued by the exterior of the diner, but really enjoyed the inside. If you didn't know better, you'd think you had gone back in time about 60+ years. We got the two slices of excellent pie. As we ate, we studied the walls and decorations. Good fun.

The service is always good with cheery efficient staff. Love the food with some old favorites and some new trendier offerings. Nothing fancy but clean and always a good meal.

Egg salad Sandwiches as good. Atmosphere is a 50's style Diner. Not my first choice but a reasonably priced place to grab a bite to eat.

It was a good lunch distraction and a reason to go on a road trip and get out of the house. Spotted it on Triple D and thought we would go. I started with oysters on the half shell at $2 a piece, clam roll and onion rings. My wife tried the liverwurst and bacon sandwich. Green River's to quench... More

Been going to this diner for years but had not visited in the past year or two. It used to be a lot better than we found it to be this visit. The place is in dire need of cleaning as are the clothes the employees were wearing. There were four of us in our party and although they were... More
