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.
