Classic drive in

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

I visited Edward's for the first time and ordered the highly recommended breaded tenderloin & fries. Even though the tenderloin hung over the bun in all directions, it was more coating than meat. I got lettuce, onion, pickle, and mayo on my sandwich but it was still extremely dry. In all fairness I'll go back to Edward's but will order... More

Heard about Edward's after an episode of "Man vs Food". They're probably famous for their pork tenderloins, but I got their fish sandwich and onion rings. Everything was good. Definitely a 50s theme here with the decor and music.

It is a small restaurant, but it was Packed during lunch hour, and my meal was great! I remember having a breaded tenderloin deluxe , at Miller's Drive In, at Rushville Indiana. Miller's has since closed, and that is my favorite sandwich, so my best friend took me to Edwards, as a surprise. The sandwich was HUGE! Georgia does not... More

This little dive restaurant was featured on Man vs Food several years ago...although I personally see it better suited for Diners, Drive-in and Dives, as it really covers all three...lol. Due to the television exposure, it is a little more well known secret, but still not at all overrated. Edwards is a bit of an adventure to find. It was... More

Based on Man vs Food episode that visited this restaurant, we decided to try. Chose breaded tenderloin, onion rings and root beer. We ate inside and had to stand in line to place our order. Decor was from 50-60's with jute box playing. Tenderloin was large, but a little dry. Onion Rings were awesome as was root beer.
