Went to Edward's on our way back home. Glad we stopped in. this place seems like a true diner. Went there for the Fried pork sandwich and was not disappointed. It was bigger than the bun. It was everything we had heard. If we ever go back to Indy We will be sure and stop in again.

I only get to eat fried port tenderloin (PT) sandwiches once a year when I go to Indy for the Indianapolis 500. I usually only have time to visit one or two places each year and Edward's was one I had not tried before. It's not in a high profile area but it has ample parking and is very clean.... More

Great root beer, onion rings, coney dogs, etc. Eat in or they will bring it to your car to take home!

We stopped here after seeing the tv show about this place on Man vs Food. The food is not that good and is very greasy. For the price they charge for the food I would expect better quality. If you are looking for something healthy you need to go to another restaurrant. If you like this type of food which... More

After all the TV Show hype & Superlative reviews.... I expected a "too die for experience" We ordered the classic Tenderloin with Onion Rings & Root Beer. The Fried/Breaded Boneless Pork Tenderloin was Huge - But Extremely Thin.... It was fresh, it was hot, bun was standard, lettuce & tomato were fine(extra charge?) As a former Howard Johnson Manager, who... More

My wife and I both got the tenderloin sandwich, but neither of us finished it. It was just too big and not quite tasty enough to justify eating the whole thing. Decor was nice enough and evoked a bit of a 50s feel. Not in any hurry to return.

We made a special trip (our first) to Edwards after hearing good things about it and that it was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Sorry to say, we were disappointed. The setting, across from looming grain elevators, really doesn’t evoke a 50s diner and the building has a few 50s touches (the boomerang Formica pattern, a jukebox and some... More

We love Edwards for their classic, midwestern pork tenderloin. With Indiana being the second largest pork producing state, good tenderloins are around many places. Edwards does it so well. Their breaded tenderloin, as big as your head, is great! But, the grilled tenderloin is even better! Juicy and well seasoned, the grilled sandwich is fantastic. Fried pickles too salty, but... More

It's huge literally covers my son's whole face, even though it's fried it's not over cooked, and the meat is juicy and moist not over dry, if I'm... More
