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.

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
