Fifties style diner

We took our grandchildren and we all enjoyed it. They make their own root beer and have fresh pounded tenderloin, breaded or grilled everyday. I thought it was very good. My grandson said his cheeseburger was the best he ever had. Thy all had a root beer float. Cute fifties decor, plenty of seating.

Edward's drive in takes the Baby Boomer generation back to when they were teens with the touch of the 1950s cooking. The food is really good regardless of it being Coney Dogs, tenderloins, or Burgers, the taste is fresh and not at all like the other popular drive thrus that younger kids like to go to. Prices are competitive, we... More

Stopped in based on "best Pork Tenderloin in Indy" web search. It's out of the Indy "proper" area, and the area seems to be a bit seedy, but since I'm assuming you're not building a house there, it's worth the 10-15 min car drive if you have time. I had the pork tenderloin sandwich - only complaint was that it... More

I have known about Edwards all my life, since I lived a short distance from them in Beech Grove. They have the best tenderloin in Indy! The owners- Brother & Sister Tom & Terri will go out of their way to accommodate you and your group. I had a reunion lunch there and there was a conflict with the date.... More

Not a true drive-in, but it doesn't matter, because the inside is a cute, classic-style diner with great ol' drive-in food and a jukebox. You can park in a spot near the entrance and be waited on, but no intercom ordering or carport. This eatery is too cool not to dine-in, anyway. Prices are pretty reasonable, especially the daily specials.... More

I've been here to try their tenderloin sandwich with a mug of root beer. I found what I was looking for, the food was good and the root beer too.

Down from Alaska visiting my brother in Indiana. I had to have a pork tenderloin sandwich while visiting Indy. A friend recommended Edwards and we were on that side of town. Service was quick and friendly, the sandwiches were huge! A touch less juicy on the edges cost them a star. I'll go back when back east, for sure!

Have been here several times for lunch. Food is good but pricey. Asked one of the employees on the floor if she could help me get me some mayo. She said no, I would need to get it from the front counter. Problem is there was 1 girl and a long line. About 6 people saw me from behind the... More

This is a 50's themed restaurant that serves a large variety of burgers, sandwiches, salads, milk shakes and pretty good onion rings and root beer as well I had the Super E sandwich and onion rings on this night with their diet root beer. This is a warm sandwich and it was plenty to eat. Edwards root beer is very... More
