One of the characteristics of the iconic Lemon Drop in Anderson is that the waitresses memorize your order. My wife used to be a regular customer when we lived in that neck of the woods. It has been nearly 5 years since our last visit....More

Routinely go here. Great FOOD! Excellent atmosphere and the staff is always friendly. One of those old established places where people go to say they have been there. Multiple Colts players have been there throughout the year's.

This small diner offers much to love. Its a throwback to simpler days. With it's tasty food at fair prices, it is extremely popular among tourist and locals alike making it very crowded during peak dining hours.

Good old-fashioned burger. Great service. Small place so don't go during lunch hour if you want to sit!

We have always enjoyed stopping to eat at the Lemon Drop. For me it's revisiting a childhood memory of getting to eat away from home. The burgers are great meat cuts and I really enjoy the Onionburger!
