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!

I grew up around Edwards and it was always a special treat to go there for Friday night dinner. My favorite is the Coney dogs and their sauce, they're mild enough not to give me heart burn. The Tenderloins are good also but the onion rings are fabulous. In the front of the store is the drive-up where you can... More

My children and grandchildren visited for the weekend. My teen aged grand son is a "foodie" so we let him pick the restaurant and he did based on watching man vs. food. We had 7 people. Highlights: Onion rings and root beer floats were outstanding. Met expectations: The tenderloin sandwich was good, but not great compared to other places that... More

My husband and I go here every Summer as a tradition and we are never disappointed. If you like tenderloins, you'll love Edward's. They are huge with regular size buns, which I think makes for a comical looking plate and still enjoyable. Everything is always piping hot and the milkshakes are some of the best I've had. You will not... More
