Flavortown food.

You can't go wrong with the huge tenderloin sandwich, onion rings, and wash it down with a root beer. Everything was top notch. Edwards has it going on. I will be back when in the area.

Everything on the menu is good. Been going here for years (over 35 years). When ever we visit Indianapolis this is a must stop after White Castle of course. Their root beer is the best I have ever had. This is the one place in the United States that knows what a real tenderloin is and know how to cook... More

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.
