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

Come on what's not to like about this place . They have an option to add a fried egg to a cheeseburger . Ugh I could eat here everyday if I could. You can't go wrong with mom and pol places like these .

I'm a single woman of 42, but look younger. I was in a t shirt and exercise pants and gym shoes. The waitress took an immediate dislike to me. Maybe she prefers the old timers that come there, idk. Despite by complete courteous demeanor I felt like a bother. I was served my cheeseburger deluxe in about 8 min. Which... More
