If you have not been here, stop in and make your own decision. I DO NOT think you will be disappointed. I went simple the first time, just to try the hamburger with old English cheddar.....WOW!!! Loved it. I have "strayed" away from the simplicity a few times, and those were good, but I LOVE a double with Old English... More

Just ok. Burger was good. Very greasy but that's what we expect here. It just doesn't seem very clean in here.

We've been going to Miner Dunn for many years! (since high school days) Their burger meat is never frozen, always fresh! Best fries around and I've always loved the orange sherbet that comes with the deluxe meals. Price is right and service is usually good, and always a good cup of coffee!

It was dark out and I drove by the place and I thought to myself that they had a full parking lot so it's gotta be good. U So I returned and was greeted very warmly, seated immediately and within a flash the waitress was there to take my order. I ordered my drink and asked for a few minutes... More

It is practically a land mark. I have driven past Miner-Dunn occasionally for the past 15 years and finally stopped in. It is a greasy spoon diner so you get what you expect. Staff was great, food was above average and interior dates back to the good old days. Very happy with our meal and with all the chain restaurants... More

Miner-Dunn is always a great experience for us. It's old school as evidenced by the mint green color scheme and wallpaper, but everything is kept up and super clean. The food is what you would not only expect but hope for from a roadside diner. Perfect burgers, delicious hand-cut fries, and the pie is to die for.

Pumpkin pie shake was the only redeeming part to our dinner at this restaurant. Went in for the advertised Salisbury steak. Awful - overly salty, canned green beans on the side with macaroni and cheese that was runny and cold. Others had a Caesar salad, fries, burger and onion rings. Burger was just okay. Fries and onion rings were good.... More

This is a classic 50's place. Leather booths, chrome accents, bar stools at the eating counter. I love this place and the people are friendly, the food is great with wonderful hamburgers and fries! And a small sherbet to finish things off. Good prices for the great taste.

There was a time when Miner-Dunn had several locations in NW Indiana. In the 1950's, my mom worked at the Hammond location. Needless to say, its been a family favorite for a long time. This location is the last one left. But it is the same as I've always remembered. Great hamburgers, good service, and sherbet at the end of... More
