IR is a great gourmet burger place. The specialize in stuffed burgers, but the whole menu is pretty good. It's all centered around the industrial revolution theme with famous industrialists as namesakes to many if the items. The beer selection is pretty good too although that is becoming more common nowadays. The prices are a little high for casual dining in the area but the food and the atmosphere make it a decent value. One word of advice. If you order a stuffed burger you aren't going to be able to get it well done or the stuffing will just melt out. So if you can't handle a little pink in the middle you may need to avoid the stuffed burgers but there is plenty else on the menu to choose from.

Stopped here yesterday evening on our way through Valpo. They have a terrific menu with unique burger choices such as the Stuffed Smoked Bacon burger which combined a lot of flavors and was cooked to perfection. Our burgers came out 10 minutes after ordering. The desserts are also worth stuffing yourself - we had the apple pie and red/white/blue cheesecake. Both were very good and they give a free dessert for birthdays. The design and idea behind the restaurant is also very cool with a model train running around above the inside of the restaurant and the walls packed with American historical mementos. Service was prompt and friendly. This place is now on our go-to dining spot when passing through Valpo.

Food and service are excellent! We pass through here once a year and make a point if eating here. Love the industrial motif and the model train that runs near the ceiling is very fun.

Food is a good value because they use fresh, high-quality ingredients.

Staff is very friendly and go out if their way to make sure you enjoy your visit.

Traveling across country can be dangerous business, especially if you are in unfamiliar places with no connection to the food scene. Who knew that Valparaiso, Indiana would be such a great place to stop for the night. The hotel is a nice surprise, but the recommendation from Kaitlyn at the front desk that we check out Industrial Revolution means the road trip gods are watching over us.
Love this place. The look is cool, but not hipster cool that lets me know I'm the old guy in the room, just authentic cool. The people are great. Lindsay, our server, was cute and friendly as could be, and she's obviously proud of her place. And Ronnie is a great host and conversationalist, not to mention craft beer guru extraordinaire. Thanks for the hospitality and the ridiculously delicious Doritos Burger.

Good food. Good beer selection. Great atmosphere. But sometimes I've found the service to be really poor other it's great though; but this has impacted how often I end up eating there.
