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.

The homemade root beer and onion rings are a must try! My husband ordered the fried pork sandwich that they are famous for. It was huge, just like the pictures and other people said. He said it was good, but we didn't like how it came plain and in order to add cheese, lettuce, or tomato, it is a 29cent... More

We visited here because my friend loves pork tenderloin sandwiches and swears he can't find them on the East coast that are as good. His onion rings were huge, as were the pork tenderloin, and delicious! I just had ham and grilled cheese with a strawberry shake. It was all greasy, fried, and not good for you food, but isn't...

On our recent family road trip we decided to stop at Edward's Drive-In for lunch since it was on Man Vs Food. We wanted to try new things on this family vacation. My husband ordered the tenderloin sandwich, my 2 kids and I ordered the BLT with onion rings and my son ordered a cheeseburger with fries. The tenderloin sandwich... More

We were near an event and decided to try Edwards. We got fried fish and cheeseburgers. The food was not bad, but not good. The burgers were not hot in the middle. The fish had no seasoning, but was average.
