If you are a fan of the breaded tenderloin, this is a must stop! They also have very good chili and their rootbeer is served in an ice cold mug!

Edward's Drive-In takes you back in time. The juke box and the atmosphere makes you fell like you have step back to the 60s. The tenderloin sandwich reminds me of the type I grew up eating, big and flat. The root beer is served in a frosty mug and is great,

I have had much better tenderloins and I been to much cooler classic drive ins. Price was right, but .25 for a bit of shredded lettuce. Give me a break.

Just like the teen years. Best tenderloin and onion rings anywhere. Root beer made on site. You will want to come again.

We travel between Cincinnati and Chicago often. Every time we travel through Indianapolis we stop at Edwards for the Pork Tenderloin and onion rings. The car hops and root beer take us back to when we were kids. Love it!
