“Aptly named and worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

There are two, locally-owned Dog n Suds that provide that unique 50s-style, in-your-car dining experience. The West Lafayette restaurant opened in 2007 and is nicely situated between two small shopping centers. It’s well-maintained and includes a covered patio for dining; musicians play free shows there occasionally. Service by high school or college-age carhops is always friendly and efficient. We were there most recently for lunch on a pleasant Thursday afternoon, perfect for enjoying a meal “outdoors.” We had a tenderloin basket ($7), coney dog, and two frosty mug root beers. While the tenderloin wasn’t outstanding, it was as good as one from a much-hyped drive-in on the south side of Indianapolis. The root beer, in that frosty mug, was more impressive than the Indy offering ... and that sudsy head was there to the bottom of the mug. Dog n Suds (and this one in particular) still does it right.

“Nostalgic and Good too”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2014 via mobile

Here is one from the past. Didn't know there were still places like this with carhops too. Amazing and as good as ever. The Hoosier specialty of pork tenderloin was crispy on the outside and super tender inside. The frosted mug root beer was as classic as ever. No gastronomic wonders here but does what it is supposed to in nostalgic high style.

“Great taste and easy going”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

This place is great. They have more menu optuins than the Lafayette location but still serve the same great coney dogs and root beer. They also offer chicken strips, rib eye sandwiches, melted cheddar cheese and lemonade. The staff is friendly and swift. The restroom was clean and the picnic area was clean and maintained. Will definetly be coming back.
