“Awesome Onion Rings”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Edward's Drive in onion rings are fabulous. The onions are sweet and dipped in a flavorful batter and the portion size is perfect. We also enjoyed the homemade root beer. The butterscotch shakes were terrific as well. Personally, I found the breaded pork tenderloin sandwich to be just so-so. They were not flavorful nor juicy enough for my taste, but my family liked them.

“Best tenderloin in Indianapolis!”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

I've been coming to Edwards for years now and it's my go-to place when I want a tenderloin, fries, and a root beer. They excel at all three of those. While I'm sure they have plenty of other delicious menu options, I can't get enough of their delicious breaded tenderloin, their perfectly crispy crinkle-cut fries, and mouth-wateringly good root beer.

“Outstanding root beer and rings.”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We had pork tenderloin baskets, very tasty sandwiches. The breaded loin was a little dry (it is pounded out before breading), the grilled loin was nice and juicy. The onion rings were so good that we went back for another order and the root beer alone was was worth the visit. Very good eats at a very good price!

“Oh those Onion rings....!!”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

The excellent (and huge!) tenderloin sandwiches are worth returning for, but the onion rings alone are worth a pilgrimage. Get an ice cold mug of their home made root beer, too. Skip the burgers, however. Make it a tenderloin sandwich, a basket of onion rings and a mug of root beer. It is very happy food!

“Share a tenderloin sandwich - they are huge!”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Order the onion rings and share a sandwich - you will have plenty to eat.
We stopped by on our way to North Carolina and loved the nostalgic atmosphere and the
food hit the spot!
