My children and grandchildren visited for the weekend. My teen aged grand son is a "foodie" so we let him pick the restaurant and he did based on watching man vs. food. We had 7 people. Highlights: Onion rings and root beer floats were outstanding. Met expectations: The tenderloin sandwich was good, but not great compared to other places that... More

My husband and I go here every Summer as a tradition and we are never disappointed. If you like tenderloins, you'll love Edward's. They are huge with regular size buns, which I think makes for a comical looking plate and still enjoyable. Everything is always piping hot and the milkshakes are some of the best I've had. You will not... More

The food was good...... The cashiers definitely need some improvement..... They act they don't want to be there and you are bothering them.

I try to support independently owned and operated businesses whenever I can. Hence why I stopped here. Good place, friendly staff and good food what's not to like.

Great burgers and root beer and the onion rings are to die for. They have a great menu from breaded tenderloin to chill dogs.

We stopped by Edward's Drive-In on our way to the Indianapolis Zoo on a Monday afternoon. We chose Edwards because it was a classic drive-in restaurant and also because it had been visited by The Travel Channel and more specifically, Adam Richman of Man Vs. Food (our 7yo is a big fan!). My husband ordered the tenderloin sandwich and had... More

Stopped in for some yummy treats today! Was not disappointed and my tummy is still full! My grandson had the cheeseburger kids meal with fries which comes with a cookie. It was nice that they added some new sides such as Mandarin oranges and Mac n Cheese. I had a corn dog and my husband got the grilled tenderloin which... More

Great onion rings and tenderloin. Hubby liked the rootbeer. It's kind of a drive for us but it was good.

There are seats inside the restaurant but I wanted to the drive-in experience and it didn't disappoint! I had a lot of fun and was surprised at how huge the tenderloin sandwich was! The menu has what you'd expect from an old drive-in. Greasy, guilty pleasure, American food.
