Looking for an old-fashioned burger treat? Lemon Drop is the place to go! Fresh hot fries, onion burgers, cherry cokes anyone?

The to go service is good and the workers are friendly. I enjoyed the toast and melted cheese on the double cheese burger. I was disappointed that there wasn't bacon available. My order was slightly wrong, I ordered with ketchup and the burger was plain but that was an easy fix for me. My husband got the onion burger and... More

The best onion burgers in the world. Well I have only been to 60 percent of it, but still no one can make them better. If you are anywhere close to anderson this is a must visit, old school classic that is a must visit and eat!

We were visiting from out of town and found the lemon drop, This place was delicious and the staff is super nice! There is limited seating but everything moves very fast, people didn't have to wait more than 10 minutes for a seat. We will definitely be going back our next trip to Indianapolis

I'm not sure exactly what to say. The food is hot. Made to order. It's bland at best. Biggest issue is the restaurant itself. There is seating for maybe 15 and that's stretching it. It's very old and ran down which makes it feel unclean. We were rushed from our seats after eating as well even though no one was... More

This restaurant is a must see for guests that visit Anderson. This is an authentic diner in the heart of the industrial section of Anderson. When the automotive industry was in its hayday this was the place for lunch and dinner! Upon entering this restaurant you will feel like you've stepped back in time. Whether you step up to the...

Reminiscent of a bygone era, hamburgers are definitely better than fast food joints but not so great either. I found the burger greasy, which some people like, but that doesn't appeal to me.

This restaurant always satisfys. My only complaint is - there are not enough seats!!!! Seating is at a premium and really needs to be larger. I understand the owner's reasoning for not enlarging but it's tough to get a seat most days. They are so busy and I always walk away satisfied !!!!
